Mental Health Diet
Ways we can help you achieve mental health with healthy eating
We recognize the importance of diet for the health of not only the body, but the mind. This integrative approach for healthy eating mental health is based on numerous scientific studies, and it can bring dramatic positive results.
For example, it is well known that mood is greatly affected by what is going on in the digestive tract. Spices such as saffron, cinnamon, and turmeric have many beneficial properties, including alleviating depression and boosting the immune system. Using a high quality sea salt as a seasoning will help replenish the minerals that have been leached from the soil due to mechanized farming. A diet of mostly fresh, raw foods will provide the living enzymes necessary to deliver these nutrients to your body’s cells.
Avoidance of certain man made food additives is also very important for total wellness. MSG and aspartame are two well known “excitotoxins” – they stimulate the brain to create cravings which become addictive, while simultaneously causing neurological damage.
