Does A Healthy Diet Reduce The Risk Of Depression?

Does A Healthy Diet Reduce The Risk Of Depression?

Depression is a mental illness marked by feelings of profound sadness and low interest in positive activities. It is a persistent low mood that interferes with the ability to function and appreciate things in life. It may cause a wide range of symptoms, both physical and emotional. It can last for weeks, months, or years. There could be various causes of depression, but poor diet is one of the reasons revealed by researchers.

A certain study reinforces the hypothesis that a “healthy diet has the potential to not only ward off depression, but also prevent it."

Depressed individuals often have a poor diet quality and a decreased intake of nutrient rich food. But this is not yet clear in the case of healthy individuals suffering from depression.

A healthy diet characterized by vegetables, fruits, cereals, milk and low fat dairy products, pulses, fish, meat and poultry is associated with a lower risk of depression.

Increased intake of folate was also associated with a decreased risk of depression because low folic acid levels leads to low same (s-adenosylmethionine), which increases symptoms of depression. By improving folic acid status, same increases, and depressive symptoms drop. Vegetables, fruits, berries, whole-grains, meat and liver are the most important dietary sources of folate.

In addition, coffee and tea also act as anti-depressants to an extent because caffeine promotes the production of dopamine (a neurotransmitter released by the brain) which is responsible for the feeling of well being and happiness. But the amount of caffeine consumed should not be more than 300mg per day as caffeine is an addictive substance.

Omega 3-fatty acids, which are found in vegetable oil, nuts and fish oil, increase the level of serotonin (known as the happy hormone), which reduces the level of depression. Not only this, essential amino acids like tryptophan play a role in the formation of serotonin. Meat, fish, beans and eggs are good sources of essential amino acids.

Having refined carbohydrate and processed foods increases your blood sugar levels and does not provide any kind of nutrient to the body and brain. It even utilizes the mood enhancing vitamin b. Sugar also diverts the supply of another nutrient involved in mood enhancing, chromium. The best way to lower your sugar level is to have food low on the glycemic index.

Lastly, vitamin d deficiency may cause depression because vitamin d is responsible for brain development. So consume vitamin d rich foods such as egg, mushrooms, fish etc.

Depression is one of the leading health challenges in the world and its effect on public health, economics and quality of life are enormous. Not only the treatment of depression, but even the prevention of depression needs new approaches. Change in dietary and lifestyle factors are one of the possible approaches.

You are going through extended grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

I am afraid that you may be suffering from the rejection issue wherein you feel unwanted and also abandoned, and suffer separation anxiety. This can complicate your whole life. There must have been some incident in your early childhood that may have provoked this feeling: be it true or not. It is however possible to resolve this by learning to accept yourself and love yourself. The rejection issue will make you feel like you do not belong, although externally there may be all the signs that they do love you. It is your perception based on some incident in childhood that is influencing this feeling. The perception is more important than the actual event. You must do all kinds of loving things for yourself. That includes respecting your life, health and well being. Do not frequent people or places or situations where you are not wanted. You must exercise daily, eat a good diet and sleep well. Your identity is also something to work on. In the meantime, do a personality development course; attend workshops and conferences and talks to further your growth. The more educated you become, the more confidence you will develop. Generally meet more people and gradually learn to dispel all fear around them: they are also sometimes equally afraid of others!

So we live separately I'm in my home for my studies and he in his job place. He comes once a week or month to see me. Afterwards I complete my diploma. I got job. So he take me with him to his job place. But we live for 1 week then again separate then after 1 year he come back and try to contact me. So I thought may be it's new beginning. He changes a lot, so we decided to go somewhere for 3 4 days. So on that days when I go bath he check my mobiles and social chats. So I too ask him his mobile. So when I check it he throughly chatting with his office girls and in his other history and all when check it all porn sites. I totally get upset. I scold him his colleagues. He say sorry he promised again not do all that. From that situations and now we have 14 months baby. He is good now.

Hi lybrate-user Don't worry. It happens in most of the marriages. Success of marriage is not depends on what you sacrifice for him and what he sacrificed for you. It always lies on UNDERSTANDING AND ACCEPTING. Try to understand him holistically both his positives and negatives. Try to accommodate his negatives. Having negatives is not a weakness but failure to aware one negatives is a weakness. Make him to accept his negatives. Then there won't be any problem. If there would be no problem between you peoples then nobody can enter between you. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user: The patient needs to be assessed for underlying psychological factors. Developmental history and personality factors also need to be evaluated. If the anxiety attack seems sudden, with no apparent situational correlates, you need to check for signs of panic attack. If the diagnosis is panic attack, then treatment may be done either by a psychiatrist or by an experienced psychologist with therapeutic skills in managing anxiety disorder and panic attack.

Dear user. I can understand. Smoking e cigarettes are also as dangerous as normal cigarettes. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, From what you have mentioned, it seems that you are suffering from symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD). OCD causes symptoms of repeated thoughts, in your case regarding contamination. It could also be doubts. Due to these thoughts, compulsive repeated behaviour results, in your case repeated cleaning and hand washing. In case of doubts, it could be repeated checking behaviour. OCD is a treatable condition. Medications and psychotherapy in form of exposure and response prevention will help you recover from all the symptoms. Please consult a psychiatrist and get yourself evaluated. Accordingly treatment can be initiated. I do hope that you recover completely. Best wishes.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I can understand what you must be going through. Overthinking, negative thoughts are suggesting of underlying depressive and anxiety disorder. You should consult a psychiatrist and get yourself evaluated completely. Depression and anxiety disorders respond well to treatment. Medications and psychotherapy will help you recover. In addition, start exercising daily. Start writing diary daily in order to vent out your feelings and emotions. I do hope that you recover completely. Best wishes.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear that triggers severe physical reactions when there is no real danger or apparent cause. Panic attacks can be very frightening. When panic attacks occur, you might think you're losing control, having a heart attack or even dying. Many people have just one or two panic attacks in their lifetimes, and the problem goes away, perhaps when a stressful situation ends. But if you've had recurrent, unexpected panic attacks and spent long periods in constant fear of another attack, you may have a condition called panic disorder. Panic attack can come in agoraphobia, when there is fear of places where there is no exit, in crowds, locked places, travelling far from home….etc. Although panic attacks themselves aren't life-threatening, they can be frightening and significantly affect your quality of life. But treatment can be very effective. Consult a Psychiatrist and get remedy. All the best for you.
