Food & Depression - How The Two Are Related?

Food & Depression - How The Two Are Related?

Depression is a clinical, mental, and emotional condition that may give rise to feelings of hopelessness and chronic sadness. It slows down the way people process everyday activities and leads the patient to a sense of constant gloom and doom. It is a disabling mental condition as per WHO, and may be caused due to reasons like genetics, changes in the balance of hormones, stress, grief, trauma and prolonged, chronic physical ailments. Depression is also connected with food and nutrition. Do you want to know how? 

Read on to see the three ways in which food and depression are connected. 

  1. Severity and Duration: Depression is a mental illness that signifies an imbalance in the hormones and the emotional faculties in the brain. Nutrition is the fuel that keeps the brain and body in prime working condition. When a depressive state sets in or becomes emotionally rooted, then nutritious eating and a proper diet take a back seat as the patient succumbs to a state where he or she is not concerned about the food intake. As a result, the brain and hormonal balance get further affected. This can have an adverse effect on the severity and the duration of the depressive mode, which makes it all a vicious cycle of sorts. Poor appetite, not having proper meals, skipping meals, eating junk, avoiding social settings where food will be served, and even emotional eating are all outcomes of depression too.
  2. Eating Disorders: Many patients who have eating disorders often experience deep rooted and chronic depression. Since despondency and hopelessness are the main characteristics of depressive behaviour, the outcome is that the patient tries to behave in a way that seeks approval. And in all this, the patient usually thinks that he or she is not 'good enough'. In such a scenario, the patient may start trying out fad diets and eventually fall prey to eating disorders like Bulimia that make the patient overeat and then vomit. These eating disorders usually come with phases of binge eating, throwing up, starving and then repeating the cycle again. Eating in secrecy is also a symptom of this condition.
  3. Nutrition to Fight Depression: Nutrition and proper food intake can build a sense of resilience by first of all improving the overall physical condition of the patient. This can take care of a lot of angst even as the minerals and vitamins travel to the brain for better functioning in the long run.

Ensure that you eat right as a part of your therapy for depression. This is as good as taking your medication on time! Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear user, continuation of psychiatric medications is necessary to avoid recurrence of depression. It is best to take ayurvedic or homeopathic medicines only after consulting your psychiatrists. Please do no not start any new medications or suddenly stop any medications on your own. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a good diet, regular sleep, exercise, and stress busting activities can reduce recurrence of illness too.

Dear user, it is less likely that the capsule is still stuck in your throat as it is usually made of material which melts in your body. What you are feeling could be irritation due to the capsule. If it persists best to visit and ENT doctor and get it checked. Hope this helps.

DNB PSYCHIATRY, MBBS

Schizophrenia is a disorder where person hears voices which are not audible to others or believes in things which are not true. They may also show aggression without reason. This sometimes leads to risk or harming self or others and should definitely be treated at the earliest possible. It can be controlled well with medicines and counselling.

I came to know your app that using omega 3 fatty acid is useful in the case of memory loss. Recently my son is complaining that he can't concentrate on his studies & forgets what he reads. Pl tell me which contains omega fatty acids.

DNB PSYCHIATRY, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Omega three fatty acids may be helpful in memory loss. There is only supportive evidences for it in research. It is not advisable to start any supplement without finding the actual cause for the problem. Facing difficulty in studying and remembering can be caused by many reasons including attention defecit hyperactivity disorder and specific learning disability. It's best to show to a psychiatrist, special educator or pediatrician and find the cause of difficulty in studying before giving any medicine.

My father is a schizophrenic, he has been admitted 3 times in 3 years at Bhopal memorial hospital and research center. Since he is suffering from this disease he barely knows about illusions and accepts them as reality. He never takes the prescribed medicines suggested by doctor as he always has two pictures in his mind 1.Either it's some planning to give him any poison 2.He is fine and do not need any medicine. Now the issue is recently he is facing trouble with urine related issue. He is unable to pee in adequate amount and in proportion to amount of his water or liquid intake. He told me that he feels that he has to pee but is unable to do properly. So is it a normal infection that has nothing to do with schizophrenia or is it a common characteristic with schizophrenia? Can it be a UTI? What would be the point of consultation in this case a psychiatrist or a urologist? Is this curable or not? And what would be the best way of Making him take his medicines?

Hi, Schizophrenia is a psychiatric disorder where person heard voices which are not there and believes in things which may clearly not be true. Difficulty in passing urine could be caused my many things like prostate problem, urinary infection, kidney stones or rarely some psychiatric medication side effect. Its best to consult a psychiatrist and urologist both as a combined approach will be needed. The problem of difficulty in passing urine is definitely curable if the right cause is found and treated. Schizophrenia is not curable and requires life long medications. For patients unwilling to take medications many options are available such at injections of medications which have to be given every 15 days. But it is best to visit a psychiatrist so that your father can be explained about his illness and willingly takes medicines.
