Long-Term Strategies for Improving Your Mental Health

REMINDER: In The Archive is all of the articles that I
have posted since I started this blog. There is TONS OF
INFORMATION there for you to learn from. It's the type
of information that not only saved my life...It also has
given me a better quality of life.

    You can't make long-term plans for lifestyle changes when you
are in a crisis, so clearly, the following recommendations are not
meant to get you out of an acute situation. Rather, I invite you
to take these lifestyle recommendations to heart as a preventive
measure, before depression and other troubles set in. Optimizing
your health may actually be one of the most important things you
can do to help you make it safely through financially hard times,
as faltering health in combination with poverty can lead even the
most level-headed people to the limit of what they can endure.

    My top tips to support positive mental health are as follows:

        Energy psychology is one of the most powerful tools for
resolving emotional issues specifically a technique called EFT.
For serious problems like depression you do NOT want to perform
EFT on yourself, you need to seek guidance from a skilled professional,
ideally someone who is also trained in conventional methods. The
effectiveness of any energy psychology technique will be significantly
improved if you combine it with the tips that follow.

        Dramatically decrease your consumption of sugar (particularly
fructose), grains, and processed foods. (In addition to being high in
sugar and grains, processed foods also contain a variety of additives,
especially artificial sweeteners, that can affect your brain function
and mental state.)

        Adequate vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 deficiency can contribute to
depression and affects one in four people.

        Optimize your vitamin D levels, ideally through regular sun
exposure. Vitamin D is very important for your mood. One study found
that people with the lowest levels of vitamin D were 11 times more
prone to be depressed than those who had normal levels.

        The best way to get vitamin D is through exposure to SUNSHINE,
not swallowing a capsule. Remember, SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)
is a type of depression that we know is related to sunshine deficiency,
so it would make sense that the perfect way to optimize your vitamin D
is through sun exposure, or a safe tanning bed if you don't have regular
access to the sun.

        Get plenty of high-quality animal-based omega-3 fats. Omega-3
fats are crucial for optimal brain function and mental health, and most
people don't get enough from diet alone. So make sure you take a high-
quality omega-3 fat, such as krill oil.

        Evaluate your salt intake. Sodium deficiency actually creates
symptoms that are very much like those of depression. Make sure you do
NOT use processed salt (regular table salt) however. You'll want to use
an all-natural, unprocessed salt like Himalayan salt, which contains
more than 80 different micronutrients.

        Adequate daily exercise. Exercise is one of the best-kept secrets
to preventing and treating depression.

        Make sure your cholesterol levels aren’t too low for optimal
mental health. I have been educating the public about the underreported,
adverse effects associated with lowering cholesterol through drugs like
statins for many years, but what many still do not know is that low
cholesterol is linked to dramatically increased rates of suicide, as
well as aggression towards others.

        This increased expression of violence towards self and others
may be due to the fact that low membrane cholesterol decreases the number
of serotonin receptors in the brain (which is approximately 30 percent
cholesterol by weight). Lower serum cholesterol concentrations therefore
may contribute to decreasing brain serotonin, which not only contributes
to suicidal-associated depression, but prevents the suppression of
aggressive behavior and violence towards self and others.

 God Bless Everyone & God Bless The United States of America.
