How to Fight Depression? Part 2

Updated: Mar 4, 2022

Depression is not a natural part of ageing, but it's frequently linked to age related nutritional problems, such as b vitamin deficiencies or poor eating habits.

If you suffer from depression, please see a medical support. In the meantime, you can help yourself by following my tips:

1. Nutrients

  • Tyrosine is needed for brain function, lack of it can result in mood disorders such as depression and difficulties with managing stress

  • Selenium helps to elevate mood and decrease anxiety

  • DHEA is a hormone naturally produced by the body, talking under medical supervision can significantly improve people suffering with depression

  • Zinc - I find 90% of my patients being Zinc deficient

  • Vitamin B complex all B vitamins are necessary for the functioning of the brain and nervous system. If depression is severe, injections (under a doctor's supervision) are recommended. I also recommend B6 supplementation for normal brain function

  • Vitamin B5 this is the most potent anti-stress vitamin.

  • 5-HTP increases the body's production of serotonin and increases, which helps with your feel good factor (do not use with antidepressants)

  • Calcium and Magnesium this combination have a calming influence on the nervous system

2. Food

  • Eat a diet with plenty of raw food and vegetables, whole grains, seeds and nuts

  • Salmon, white fish and turkey are a good choice to help you relax and lift your spirits



  • Drink ginger and peppermint teas during stressful situations

3. Lifestyle

  • If your depression is seasonal use light therapy

  • Various vigorous exercise can be an effective antidote to bouts of depression

  • Music can have a powerful effect on mood and is also useful for fighting depression and anxiety. Listen to Mozart, Gregorian choirs and Tibetian Monks Chanting. Listen to music with 528Hz frequencies to help you fall asleep. Good sleep is a must for the healthy strong mind

  • Stop smoking
