Something very interesting happened to me. Just six weeks after starting my new lifestyle journey my mood improved. I felt happy! I was thinking clearly, falling asleep faster, staying asleep and waking up easier. I had more energy and didn’t have the afternoon carb cravings anymore. I felt rested, positive and hopeful. I loved the way I felt and knew my nutrition was playing a key role.
I decided to start sharing what I was learning with my clients. Those who changed their nutrition saw improvement in their moods too! Their depression and anxiety decreased, their well being increased. I knew I was on to something!
I started doing some research and bingo! Processed food, gluten, and sugar have been found to create inflammation in our bodies. Inflammation in our brains is being linked to mood disorders. I heard a podcast from a doctor who stated mood disorders are actually an auto immune disease. I find this information fascinating. It also makes sense. What we put into our bodies has a profound effect, physically and psychologically.
So where do you start? Read books, listen to podcasts, find what works for you. If you would like to know what helped my journey please contact me!
