PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDERS LINKED TO THE FOOD WE EAT
I am sure you are all aware that there are millions of people all around the world suffering from psychological disorders such as depression, mood swings, anxiety, psychosis, suicidal tendencies, paranoia etc.
You may suffer yourself, you may know someone!
The standard approach in the treatment of these disorders usually involves psychological counselling and/ or electro-shock therapy and/ or drugs.
The primary focus is then only on the mind itself while the state of the body chemistry often receives very little or no attention.
Why? why are we given all these drugs?
Why can’t the medical industry give us advice on how to prevent these disorders?
I cannot help but wonder about this approach. When I consider that my mind is fed by my blood, and that my blood is made up from the food that I eat, surely, when seeking to remedy psychological disorders, I should consider whether there is not a possible food-blood-mind relationship?
It is a well-known fact that a faulty diet will lead to a disordered stream, yet few are willing to accede that a disordered bloodstream can lead to a disordered mind.
I would really appreciate your opinion and love to hear your comments on the topic.
