Whether it is anxiety or depression, when it comes to any physiological and/or emotional issues, I need to repeat myself: Stay away from three food items: Sugar, Wheat, and Dairies. All these foods create empty heat in the body, dampen the body, and block the energy flow. Just removing these foods for even one week can make a huge difference in one’s emotional landscape.
Foods Helping Anxiety/Depression
Asparagus, avocados, and berries
Garlic, onion, cinnamon, and honey
Cashews, walnuts, and sunflower seeds
Chamomile tea, and green tea
Oysters, and grass-fed beef
Nutritional Supplements Recommended for Anxiety/Depression
Vit D, Vit B12, Vit C
St. John’s Wort
Note: I have successfully used the following Standard Process products in treating anxiety/depression patients:
B6-Niacynamide, Mineral Tranquilizer, Orchex, E-Poise, Zymex, Livaplex, and Calcium Lactae.
Nutrition response testing can determine the most important nutritional needs to combat against cold, flu, or sinus issues. Often, immune challenges are closely associated with the intestines and digestive organs, reflecting the importance of the large intestine meridian in Chinese medicine. For sinus issues, the biggest culprit is found to be over-growth of yeast, mold, and fungus. Combined with acupuncture, nutritional support can provide rapid and lasting results to combat against sinusitis and other immunological challenges.
Food Items to Stock Up during Winter
Make a ginger tea with a touch of organic honey and a few pine nuts. Ginger tea can accelerate the recovery process of cold and flu.
Use garlic profusely in cooking.
A warm lemon tea with a bit of honey can be a powerful tonic to strengthen your immunity.
Oregano leaves have been used extensively to boost one’s immune functions. Spraying oregano extract into the nostrils can alleviate sinus pressure almost immediately.
Bone marrow soup (usually made from ox tail bones) is known to be a superb tonic during the winter season throughout Asian countries.
There’s really no reason to take statins and suffer the damaging health effects from these dangerous drugs. Adopt a holistic approach that will benefit your overall health—which includes a healthy cardiovascular system.
Optimize your vitamin D levels. Appropriate sun exposure is critical in maintaining a healthy heart.
Reduce grains and sugars in your diet.
Eat plenty of cruciferous vegetables such as kale, brussels sprouts, broccoli, radish, turnips and cabbages.
Eat at least three cloves of garlic a day.
Consume a moderate amount of high-quality animal (organic grass-fed) fats.
Other heart-healthy foods include olive oil, coconut and coconut oil, organic raw dairy products, eggs, avocados, raw nuts and seeds.
Exercise daily. Make sure you incorporate peak fitness, which also optimizes your human growth hormone (HGH) production.
Address your stress level through yoga, Qi-kong, or Emotional Freedom Tapping(EFT). Daily meditation for only five minutes can dramatically reduce your stress level.
Fish – Fish provides Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9 oils that directly affect cognitive function, cellular function and kidney function–all of these are under the control of the endocrine system.
Garlic – Garlic boosts immunity and regulates blood sugar levels.
Calcium – Calcium keeps nerves healthy and ensures their ability to communicate effectively. Milk, cottage cheese, cheese, leafy greens, dried beans and yogurt are all rich in calcium.
Vitamin B and B complex – These vitamins directly influence the nervous system’s proper functioning and health, as well as one’s physical and mental performance concerning the nervous system. Vitamin B and B complex are found in chicken, fish, eggs, whole grains, beans and nuts.
Vitamin C – Adrenal glands have a very high content of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). This vitamin helps the adrenal glands produce more of the disease-fighting hormone. A continued stressful environment depletes vitamin C reserves and increases the tendency for infection and disease. Good sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits, melons, apricots, strawberries, berries, green vegetables, sweet peppers and tomatoes
