The happiness and joy bio-chemical called ‘Serotonin’ is made in the gut. Did you know that?
Right now in Australia, an estimated 7% of the population of 22-million is experiencing some form of depression and as many as 20% are borderline depressives. Official causes put depression down to a range of symptoms NOT causes – bipolar, chemical depression (endogenous) , reactive depression bought about by circumstantial experiences, post-natal and childhood and adolescent depression.
If you have read my book ‘Understanding the Divine Gut’ you will know that I hold some thoughts about the causes of chronic illnesses and that most of them are caused by poor, sub-optimal or just plain bad nutrition. Yet nowhere in official commentary about depression are there nutritionally based solutions. I remain gobsmacked that no-where does food officially have a role in healing the mind of its depressive energy state. So who is in control here?
I have known depression and its immediate and consequential repercussions, and have learned through the years that when the brain is nutritionally deficient it will adopt a depressed state. The first to go are the Serotonin levels, which control the ‘joy levels’ of the mind. Serotonin is produced in the gut. So it goes to say that if your gut is not healthy then chances are you are suffering some form of depression, mild or otherwise.
By eating more clean, green and RAW food your gut will produce all the Serotonin your brain needs and a joyful feeling will ensue. Your mind will be still.
