Nutrition and Your Mental Health

What does nutrition have to do with mental health? You might be surprised to find out the truth behind what happens when a person has a nutritional deficiency.

Nutritional deficiencies can cause all sorts of psychiatric symptoms including apathy, low energy, irritability, insomnia, low energy, agitation, fatigue, concentration problems, aches and pains, weight changes, including weight loss or weight gain. Sound a lot like the symptoms of depression? The truth is the average American diet of fast food is low in vital nutrition that you need for your body to function correctly.

This isn’t to say that all depression is caused by bad nutrition but it’s certainly a contributing factor in many cases and poor nutrition will always make depression worse. Antidepressant drugs also do not correct nutritional problems. So if your depressed because of nutritional problems an antidepressant will only partially cover up the problem and you body still won’t function correctly.

  1. If you have been trying to lose fat fast, you should search google for "Lean Body Maximizer". They will help you get the body you deserve.

  2. Whole grains are not necessary. At all. Organic oats are ok, and quinoa as well. Basically anything containing gluten is a near empty calorie food. And gluten is complete garbage for your body. Whole grains are also some of the most genetically modified foods available. They’re also acid forming and gut tearing. Seeds on the other hand are great, especially sprouted seeds. When advising people on nutrition, i suggest you don’t just spout what you’ve been taught in school.

  3. No such thing as being "healthy". Health exists but healthy does not.

    There is nothing that will cure all of your diseases. Most diseases are in fact linked to dust, parasites, worms, fungi, bacteria, genetics, toxic plants, and have nothing to do with "diet".

    You can’t cure disease with diet. Its just not possible. The best way to help solve a disease is to prevent it, there is no other way. Everything else is just marketing.

    No matter what, there is going to be disease in the world.

  4. Thank you for such an informative article on how to really get your body in tune. I suffer from time to time from sluggishness and will definitely try and increase the amounts of green vegetables i consume in order to get more energy.

  5. Try whole grain pizza with fresh vegetables and organic cheese, pizza have a complete balance of nutrients; Protein, Carbohydrates, vitamins/minerals/bioflavonoids, just do not ruin it with a soft-drink, Europeans have been eating this for ages and most of them are not nearly as fat as Americans…

  6. Natural Folate Vitamin 9 is from plants and it does all sorts of good things for your body, but Folic acid is Not natural but synthetic version of it an as all synthetic substances is harmful and very toxic for the body and should be avoided at all costs. —

  7. Wheat bread contains nothing you need that isn’t found in more abundance in other foods. Also gluten is damaging to the digestive tract, whether you have a sensitivity to it or not

  8. @kipchak007 No. Vitamins are just supplements, they are there to help a healthy diet. Vitamins are important still because the way our foods are made today, even eating all healthy foods is not enough to get the optimal nutrition

  9. That’s so true. I used to be paramedic and we didn’t have much time to eat, so most of the time we just had pizza, fries und candy. Now I’m a student, eating healthy and feeling so much better 🙂

  10. Orthomolecular Medicine is a term coined by Linus Pauling on a scientific paper he wrote in 1968, I like the way you present nutrition subjects, it bring a fresh aproach to this important subject, another thing you should consider is the depletion of nutrients on modern fruits and vegetables due to extensive farming practices and the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, not everyone can have an all organic diet but we can all try, pharmaceutical grade vitamins can help

  11. — Eat foods that are rich of natural Folate in stead like from organic – Black Eyed Peas (Cowpeas), Tomato Juice, Great Northern Beans, Oranges, Green Peas, Broccoli , Cantaloupe (Muskmelon, Rockmelon or Spanspek), Avocado, Lettuce (Cos or Romaine), Wheat Germ, Kiwi Fruit, Bananas, Papaya, Paprika and Chili or English Walnuts all of wich are rich of Folate B9 or supplement that is 100% food grade.

  12. @akasin01 I think if you were to stay away from most foods that are in plastic packages (chips), and and go for whole foods, I think you should be fine. Eating a healthy diet isn’t as hard as many people think

  13. Unfortunately, in our busy life we can’t eat all the healthy balanced foods everyday, so we must take good quality supplements along with our diet. GNC’s new multivitamin, Ultra Mega® Green, is the best mulitvitamin available. I found this to be very helpful when taken with meal once a day.

  14. Nutrition and health are so important and can really be instrumental in improving someone’s life. I am a Health/Life Coach and I actually have a vid on my channel about a great free e-book on health and nutrition that is tailored to help any individual as opposed to giving one diet or one solution for everyone (which never works).

  15. @hodoboc Of course it’s healthy! It had starch, vegetable and dairy! Over eating is when it gets unhealthy and is a disadvantage to your health. 🙂

  17. Thank you very much. Great Work it is truly interesting to watch this video to know more click here-

  18. thank you so much for this video! I’ve been dealing with a lot of fatigue, but after watching your videos on nutrition and changing my eating habits, I’m beginning to feel much more energetic.

  19. THIS VIDEO IS EXCELLENT 🙂 Thank you once again, Natalie. I have bipolar disorder and am on meds (that work, thank GOd) but I want to make sure that I start counteracting their toxic drawbacks on the rest of my body. Nutrition and wellness education is really waking me up. God bless you.

  20. I totally agree that physical health affects mental health. Give a child a cup of soda and see what happens to them. We need to eat more live foods!
