How To Feel Great Again
Don't Let Mood Disorders Keep You Down
About one in four adult Americans suffer from mood disorders. If your emotions feel stuck in some negative state, don't just mask the symptoms with drugs. Counseling, good nutrition, lifestyle changes and some carefully selected supplements can get you jumping for joy again.
If you have problems with your mood, you are not alone. About 15 million Americans suffer from clinical depression. Another 19 million suffer from anxiety disorders, such as panic, obsession, phobias and post traumatic stress disorder. All together, one in four Americans suffer from a diagnosable mood disorder.
Drug companies have turned mood disorders into diseases to be treated with drugs. Tranquilizers, sleeping pills, anti-depressants and other drugs that affect the brain and nervous system account for an estimated $76 billion of the $300 billion in drug sales (www.addictionbyprescription.com). Time Magazine reported in January 2010 that antidepressants are so popular that one in ten Americans take them. Consumer Reports said that although seven sessions of counseling were just as effective in treating depression as drugs, 80% of Americans preferred taking drugs.
In her book, Why Suffer? Ann Wigmore reports a similar correlation between nutrition and mental and emotional well being. She tells the story of a man who bred mice for pet shops. His mice were healthy until someone talked him into feeding them leftover scraps from a restaurant. Within a few days of being on this diet the mice began to act in deranged ways, even to the point of fighting and killing each other. When the man went back to feeding them a healthy mouse chow, these problems stopped.
Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar is a major contributing factor to mood disorders. Rapid rises in blood sugar from refined sugar and caffeine are followed by rapid drops in blood sugar that leave a person feeling tired, confused, irritated or even out of control.
