30 Apr IV Nutrition for Depression
Most individuals understand the relation between nutrition and physical illnesses. It is much less common, however, for the connection to be made between emotionally rooted illnesses (depression, anxiety, etc.) and nutrition. Fortunately, nutritional neuroscience is emerging and establishing scientifically that nutrition factors are intertwined with cognition, behavior, and emotions.
The diet of the depressed is often far from adequate and frequently made up of poor food choices. Nutrition can play a key role in not only the onset of depression, but also the severity and duration. The most common deficiencies for mental disorders include omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins (e.g., folate), minerals, and amino acids.
With patient wellness in mind, Neuro Wellness Spa provides IV Nutrition for a variety of needs, one of which is depression. The depression formula, exclusive to Neuro Wellness Spa, is comprised of essential nutrients that benefit the depressed state of mind. It includes vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and more in quantities specific to the treatment formula. Some benefits of the depression formula include:
- Improved overall health
- Increased energy levels
- Increased brain function
- Improved cell metabolism
- Supported immune system
- Repaired neurotransmitters
- Improved glucose tolerance
In addition to deficient nutrients, there is also a direct link between mood and blood sugar (glucose) balance. All consumed carbohydrates break down into glucose, and the brain runs on glucose. If the balance of glucose fluctuates greatly, the mood will also fluctuate greatly. Additionally, lots of refined sugar and refined carbohydrates use up the mood enhancing B vitamins. If you find yourself ready to make positive changes to your diet and further enhance your well being, consider a low Glycemic Load (GL) diet to keep your blood sugar balanced long term.
