Depression and nutrition

Believe it or not it is nearly October – where did the summer go? October can be a time when we feel a bit blue – summer has officially ended and the days are getting shorter. But while some of us may just feel a bit down in the dumps from time to time, for others depression can be a daily battle. World Mental Health Day, which this year is on October 10th (www.wfmh.com), was established in order to raise awareness of mental health issues.

It is now known that there is a huge link between diet and mood, and certain foods can really transform how we feel. For example, tryptophan, an amino acid found in fish, chicken, turkey, oats and eggs is converted by the body into serotonin, our ‘feel good hormone’. If you want to boost your mood include some of the tryptophan foods in your diet everyday. Keeping blood sugar levels stable and improving digestive health including eliminating any food intolerances can also be very important in improving mood.

As well as diet, our lifestyles can affect our frame of mind such as being in a job we don’t enjoy, high stress levels, or perhaps being in the wrong relationship. Our life coaching services can help you to move from where you are now in your life to where you want to be in the future.

If you’re in need of a mood boost, get in touch to make an appointment at one of our London nutrition clinics.
