Diet, the mind, and the emotions have an interdependent relationship.
How we feel psychologically affects what we eat, how it is digested, absorbed, and assimilated,
and how the body use it. In turn, our nutrition affects our psychological health.
People vary widely in their psychological composition, and so also in
their nutritional requirements. Research has shown that serious psychological trauma can hugely increase
the need for certain nutrients such as vitamins B and C, and that unless some of
the resulting inner disturbance and conflict is resolved, this will continue indefinitely.
If the Necessary nutrition’s are taken, this will aid enormously the ability to cope with and resolve conflict and stress.
If not, nutritional deficiency will develop and considerably diminish vital energy and resilience to stress.
A healthy diet, with plenty of fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and whole grains, should provide most of these nutrients.
However, it is important to take extra, in the form of supplements, during times of stress.
This could be a preventative measure, or as part of treatment for stress-related problems, such as tension, anxiety, depression,
debility, or insomnia.
