192. We Are What We Eat

Hope for depression is not one big thing, a silver bullet so to speak. It’s the coming together of many things that add up to triumph over depression. One of those many things in our control is eating right. Let’s hear what Nancy Jimenez has to say.

“I am a holistic health and Wellness coach and it is so interesting how much food affects our mood and yet it is not discussed as much as I feel it should be. The connection between our food and the nutrients our body absorbs directly affects our serotonin levels as well as the other neurotransmitters. When we eat junk the absorption of nutrients is compromised and therefore our body is not able to produce the neurotransmitters needed to help us feel.

I truly feel it is the missing piece for a lot of people.”

– Nancy Jimenez, Holistic Health and Wellness Coach; LCPC, Billingual Professional School Counselor, Program Development, Silver Spring, Maryland

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
