DIET IN DEPRESSION

Neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and endorphin are responsible for regulating moods and behavior. The body is able to produce these neurotransmitters because of certain nutrients like protein, fatty acids and carbohydrates. Since these nutrients come from the food we consume, it is important to pay attention to your diet. Eating the right foods can help to prevent nutritional deficiencies and hormonal imbalances. This, in turn, helps to prevent or reduce mood changes and emotional disturbances, where dietary deficiencies may have been contributing factors. Here are some tips on what to eat to prevent depression:

The importance of eating a healthy breakfast cannot be stressed enough. It helps to maintain your blood sugar levels and thus keeps your moods stable.Oats make a good breakfast food because they help to combat stress and also keep your cholesterol levels in check.

Don’t drastically reduce fat from your diet. Some amount of fat is necessary for proper functioning. Try to ensure an intake of healthy fats such as omega-3 fatty acids which are found in foods such as nuts, fatty fish and seeds.

Add plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet as these will supply your body with a variety of essential vitamins and minerals.
Foods such as lean turkey, chicken and milk are high in tryptophan, an amino acid that stimulates the release of serotonin. Serotonin enhances mood.

Restrict your intake of caffeinated beverages and alcohol. Some studies have indicated a link between excessive coffee consumption and depression. Alcohol affects mood and can also interfere with sleep.

Avoid following restrictive or crash diets that eliminate an entire food group. These can considerably affect your normal body rhythm and may lead to hormonal imbalances.

Hi lybrate-user, we all feel little stressed and sad when we are unable to clear interview we had hopes from, but feeling depressed due to not being able to clear one interview is something you should think about. You are young and there are ample of opportunities for you this was not your life's last interview. So be motivated and keep working towards your bright future. I have confidence you will crack the next one. Yes, if there are few things that you feel you lack while giving interview like confidence, be anxious.

You are taking medicines but not supplementing it with psychotherapy and counseling. In fact, psychotherapy and counseling will help you to quit the medicine and continue without medicines.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. As a human being, without a promise for incentives or better living, we cannot be self motivated. Therefore, you should have an aim of being successful in life. A psychologist will help you in being self motivated for long. I suggest online counseling and motivation therapy. Take care.

Dear , you feel, your present physical conditions lead to anxiety. I think it is the other way around. Your anxiety about your health and stress together contributed towards these physical symptoms. We call it psycho-somatic disorders. No problem. Psychotherapy should help you overcome this. Provide me more details. Take care.

Hi Maths can be reached with enjoyment and some technique. Is there any medical institutions that concentrate on child difficulty and treat them appropriately. Whether she should be counseled by any doctor? Bcoz in school also they asked to take her from school. So we are in confusion what to do. She should study 10th but she can pass and come from 9th.

Get her evaluated by clinical psychologist for Learning disability. If it is the case ask them for possible concessions that could be availed for exam. All states have different rules. If not, a good teacher or remedial educator should help you out.

Lybrate-user, the levels mentioned are too high, shows totally uncontrolled diabetes. If you are on treatment, it is clear the current treatment is not helpful or grossly inadequate. Needs immediate improvement. Plus I see that you are having a bmi of 34.09 kgs/m2, showing grade 1 obesity. This also contributes to increased blood sugar. So there needs to be - efforts to reduce weight, additional treatment and proper diet control and exercise. With this multi pronged approach we will be able to bring situation under control. Thanks for the question.

Please discuss the issues with your trustworthy friends and elders and consider their opinions and advice. They may help you to decide if specialist assessment and support is necessary. In that case, it is best to start with a general assessment of health, baseline tests and then go further as needed.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

m sure that you will soon be able to get over this feeling of depression which is a temporary phase. It might take some time. Spend time with your friends and family. Talk to them share your feelings with them. Try to go out to have fun. You can join gym or swimming or tennis. Do meditation and yoga everyday. Avoid being alone and thinking about the lost person. You can use following herbal combination to keep you calm for few days..it is without any side effects. .. SAARASWATARISHTA KADHA 2 spoons twice a day with equal quantity of warm water.

My friend is 48 yrs old extremely intelligent and successful business man. He always had the habit of worrying too much. Lately he started hearing voices. He went to ENT and was told he is suffering from SCHIZOPHRENIA. He is absolutely normal a. Earlier he was a very optimistic person nowadays he has become pessimistic. This is the only apparent change in him. Can his situation worsen if untreated. What is the course of action to be taken. As a friend how can I support him.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Your friend appears to be having psychosis and he needs a detailed psychiatric evaluation. Schizophrenia is a possibility, but other disorders which may cause hearing of voices (hallucinations) need to be assessed as well. During this period, it is very important to give him a good patient listening, a family member/close friend should accompany him to a psychiatrist for evaluation asap and we should ensure that he takes treatment (medicines and counselling) regularly and someone should be with him most of the time for the first 2-3 weeks.

To begin with first just calm down and relax. Think you are the only person/mother to your child. After you calm down, have a me time, sit down and think about your life and the options available to you for making improvements in your life. Please avoid working on an impulse because you have a 4 month young child. Also begin to talk to your friends and relatives and then decide. Plenty of help is usually available, you need to explore. Once decision taken with self assessment and help of well meaning close people, make a move. If needed connect a expert relationship/marriage coach and Psychotherapist either or me or anyone nearby either online or in person, to find professional guidance and support. All the best.

Hi, You need psychotherapy, consult a psychologist online or in person for proper treatment. Exercise will not only make you feel better about yourself, but will flood your body with feel-good endorphins. Some researchers even believe that increasing your body heat, a natural result of exercise, may alter neural circuits controlling cognitive function and mood, including those that affect the neurotransmitter serotonin. Researchers believe this response can boost your mood, increase relaxation, and alleviate anxiety. Caffeine boosts your energy, and can make you jittery and anxious. If you can't go cold turkey, try reducing by a cup a day and see if you notice any decrease in your anxiety symptoms. You can also try switching to a drink with less caffeine and more health benefits, such as green tea. Deficiencies in magnesium, vitamin B12, and zinc have been linked to symptoms of anxiety. Vegans and vegetarians in particular should watch their B12 intake, as the vitamin is only found in animal products. • Studies link an unhappy gut with an unhappy mind, so avoid eating difficult to digest foods like processed meals, foods high in saturated fats, and fried foods. • Finally, don't let yourself become so hungry that your blood sugar drops, which can lead to an anxiety attack.

I feel very depressive when I am lonely please help me to come out from this problem.

I feel very depressive when I am lonely please help me to come out from this problem.
I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear, the things we watch & thoughts we think are stored in our brain. In dream, that things are shown by our brain. So avoid dreams problem try to make your mind relax. Avoid to watch violent, horrible movies and tv shows also avoid to read horror stories. Do long breathing pranayams daily for 5 to 10 minutes. Do morning or evening walk daily for 10 minutes. Drink plenty of water and eat healthy food.
