Re: Mental Health and Nutrients in Diet
Diet plays a huge role in so many things. When I was doing chronic pain support I came across a lot of people who had been 'disabled' for years, tested & treated for all kinds of ailments only to find it was a deficiency...often D or B complex. Standard GP tests don't often go into enough detail to uncover these things. It takes specialist testing.
I found that my big problem with any kind of 'health' diet was I went crazy, being so very strict. For me, the answer is adding the important foods & just making sure I consume enough everyday. Broccoli, spinach, yogurt, blueberry, kiwi, fish, wholegrains, green tea, walnuts etc. Just find the foods you like, or at least don't mind, from the major 'health' groups. I have arthritis & chronic pain so I'm a bit more anti inflammatory focused. I also take supplements. Magnesium is good for nerve pain, turmeric for inflammation etc...you get the idea.
