Could certain food be affecting your mind, and how you feel?
Is it enough for modern psychotherapy to deal with just thoughts, emotions and behaviour nowadays? What if the our body chemistry played a bigger part in how we think and feel?
A lack of good nutrients from our diet is now being shown to play a huge part in a person's mental health and well-being. Despite having what we might consider a healthy diet, stress is scientifically being proven to have consequences in our ability to absorb as many of the nutrients that we need to sustain optimum health.
Tanya has been studying psychonutrition and orthomolecular medicine for the past 5 years, and recommending that people take a fresh look at their emotional state which can often be caused by their diet; food intolerances and sensitivities that we are not aware of.
Orthomolecular medicine has been around for at least 50 years and the term was coined by Linus Pauling PhD, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, twice, for his ground-breaking studies on the healing properties of Vitamin C. Dr Hoffer continued his work and helped many people with schizophrenia to become well by using vitamin B3. It does beg the question, is mental health down to our biochemistry? And if so, can the right nutrition from foods and supplements alleviate mental suffering? See the video below.
The lack of nutrients our bodies absorb due to high levels of stress can have devastating long term effects on our nervous system which can lead to unhealthy emotional and mental states such as depression, panic disorder, anxiety disorder, weight gain, brain fog, low mood and mood swings, along with diabetes and auto-immune problems.
Whether you find is hard to believe right now, or not - toxicity, biochemical imbalances, gut dysbiosis, malabsorption, lack of nutrients, all can cause racing thoughts, anxiety and depressing and negative beliefs about ourselves which would be considered emotional issues, but sleep disturbances, asthma, skin conditions, allergies and such, considered physical issues, can be symptoms of the above also.
Long term effects can lead to serious illness like heart disease. Click here to see what top heart surgeon, Dr. Dwight Lundell, has to say about it: Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease
Food science is now beginning to disprove that a 'fat-free' diet is actually not healthy at all. It is packed with sugars which are harmful to our system. Our bodies need certain types of fat to help us stay lean and function properly! If you are struggling with weight issues, this could be your answer.
After beginning her studies, Tanya learned fast that most weight is toxicity and after putting herself on a healthier nutrient-rich diet which cut out gluten and sugar that she was especially sensitive too, she dropped around two stone in weight. She keeps herself healthy with a good mix of vitamins and minerals to support her body to function optimally
It is often recommended, but not imperative for lab tests to be taken to give us an accurate reading of your biochemical status.
I use two professional and efficient services for various disorders, ranging from mineral imbalances to adrenal fatigue.
For Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis see - http://www.pulsescreening.co.uk/hair_analysis.html This is a wonderful, personal, and friendly service at a reasonable cost. Pulse Screening can test for many health concerns.
I also use http://www.biolab.co.uk/index.php/cmsid__biolab_tests for vitamin and related functions, fatty acid profiles, profiles and screens, gut function, food and chemical allergies, antioxidants, toxic metals and much more.

Saul, formerly Assistant Editor of the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, is Editor-in-Chief of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service. He was on the faculty of the State University of New York for nine years, and taught nutrition, health science and cell biology at the college level. His peer-reviewed, non-commercial popular natural healing website is DoctorYourself.com. Saul is the author of "Doctor Yourself" and "Fire Your Doctor!". He has co-authored 7 books. Andrew can also be seen in the documentary Foodmatters. In this highly informative interview, Dr. Saul begins talking about the media's ridiculous scare tactics about using vitamins. Andrew says we can use nutrition to cure illness and brings up evidence in published medical reports dating back from the 30's. These results are being ignored by the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Dr. Saul believes death rates would be cut down by ½ if people were eating properly and getting the required nutrients. We discuss the specifics of a proper diet, vitamin therapy and doctoring yourself. Also, we talk about medicine as a belief system. Andrew brings up the importance of activism against Codex Alimentarius. Shared from Red Ice Radio's YouTube channel, with thanks.
