Master Healer Dr. Pankaj Naram offers his take on recent findings that establish a connection between eating healthy foods and depression.
BMC Medicine published research earlier this year that pinpoints a strong connection between nutrition and depression that Master Healer Dr. Pankaj Naram discusses in relation to his ancient healing system. This leader in the alternative health field is a pathfinder at helping those struggling with diseases and chronic conditions.
The research published in BMC Medicine involves a study of 15,093 people. Three diets were examined during this study: the Alternative Healthy Eating Index-2010, the Mediterranean Diet and the Pro-Vegetarian Dietary Pattern.
Each participant scored his observance of the diet in question by using positive scores for healthy foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes and nuts. Negative scores were given for less healthy choices like processed foods, meats and breads so that the higher the score meant the more foods of higher nutritional value this participant was eating.
A primary goal of the study was to notice any definitive links between dietary nutrition and mental health. The participants following the Alternative Healthy Eating Index-2010 experienced the most dramatic results in relation to being at risk for depression with those following the Mediterranean Diet coming in next. Such results indicate that eating a diet high in vegetables, fruit, nuts, legumes and omega-3s can help reduce risk of depression.
Master Healer Dr. Pankaj Naram understands the benefits that come from adhering to a healthy diet, and shares what are the ancient secrets for achieving vibrant health, unlimited energy, and peace of mind. Experts now are discovering while depression cannot typically be diagnosed and treated with one action or method, preventing the onset of this ailment may be aided with proper nutrition. Avoiding foods high in saturated fats and processed sugar may make a difference as well, notes Master Healer Dr. Pankaj Naram.
Depression is a disorder that negatively impacts the mood, usually causing feelings of unhappiness or ambivalence for extended periods of time. Mainstream medicine encourages treating this disorder with counseling and prescription medication. But alternative wellness strategists like Master Healer Dr. Pankaj Naram suggest that perhaps the best cure is prevention.
Of course, everyone should seek the best medical advice they can at any stage, and not eliminate any possibilities, says Master Healer Dr. Pankaj Naram. Yet reducing the risk of depression through diet may be less time-consuming than counseling, less intrusive than prescriptions and best of all may provide effective results.
