Why is there so little look at diet in mental illnesses and why can you constantly explain your problems until they are carved into your whole soul? First time feeding, then pills.

It is a very good, and probably legitimate question.If people were to eat healthier, I am convinced that there would be fewer mentally ill.


Let’s take a look at the situation in practice.

One of the most common mental complaints currently is depression.This is also one of the complaints which I am convinced that with a better diet, and even better, an overall healthier lifestyle can be prevented in many cases.

Person logs into the GP.GP concludes possible depression, refers to first-line psychologist. Let us go out of the best, and that person can go directly to it, and that it agrees with the GP. What now?

Do you want to encourage someone who is depressed to throw his diet over and take a good move?Forget it. That’s really not going to be him. That person is depressed. It does not cook nicely healthy. That is not going to cook a. And those already for the Thunder not sports twice in the week or half an hour a day at the walk.

Taking a pill a day, maybe twice a day, Alstie does not forget, and once a week to drag itself to therapy, he/she can still just muster.But more should you really not ask of someone in a depression, certainly not at first.

I totally agree with you, better food would be a lot, but first these symptoms (mostly) have to be solved, and then you can avoid working through a healthier lifestyle.

I also find the question right but at the same time extremely complex.The theory of questioner states: “There is a link between mental illness and nutrition.” To my knowledge, there is hardly any research done, for understandable reasons. But first this:

For hundreds of years, our (poor?) ancestors have lived on a very frug diet.They were dependent on what the season offered them-and because the winter offered very little (… Kale…) The pantry was invented. Fresh fruit, fresh vegetables: a luxury. Many potatoes, cabbage, cereals, tuber crops-that will have been the main thing. Yet that period is not known for its many mental illnesses.

For hundreds of years, many Asians have had to help themselves with a bowl of rice.There was still something in it, but many other food were not. Yet Asians are not known for their many mental illnesses.

Research on nutrition is complex.You can hardly ask if someone wants to eat broccoli for three months-and also just broccoli. That person will also eat other things; In addition, everything happens in a human life that can also affect the mental illness. A change in psychic conditions may be fixed after three months, but it is a bit too enthusiastic to attribute that to the broccoli now.

My conclusion: There is no evidence for the proposition.That does not mean that the theorem is incorrect. It just means that there is no evidence.

The very last thing: what do you need to adjust your diet to your liking?You still need nobody’s permission?

I know this for a lot of years, food in combination with dietary supplements seems to work well as a rule, even though some patients may take a long time to get results.The longer the spiritual man, the longer it will take for recovery. Weird stories It seems, certain illnesses can simply stem from mistakes in the DNA. Possible diagnoses where you can find a solution, only nutrition, or still medicines, because of mistakes in the DNA, which is interesting in preventing over-treating of patients?
