  • Dealing with low moods, anxiety and depression

    This month's feature is about Anxiety and Depression

    Stress and unresolved psychological trauma may cause more harmful bacteria than helpful bacteria in the gut. Conversely, this imbalance may activate stress responses that promote inflammion and other disease processes. Chronic stress may impair communication along the gut-brain axis and is implicated in both psychiatric and GI-related disorders such as IBD.

    Sometimes our mood and lack of motivation will stop us from trying or starting new projects. So how do we deal with it? It of course depends on the cause but here are some quick tips:

  • Start off with small changes and be realistic. One change a week like swapping your usual go to food for something different can keep it interesting and lead to a myriad of other changes. What have you always wanted to try?
  • Practice grattiude for what you already have and be kind to yourself.
  • Choose foods that are as close to their natural state as possible. Foods high in sugar or those which are processed can lead to sugar imbalances, weight gain and mood changes.
  • Keep in touch with loved ones and friends. Even without lockdown loneliness has been growing, especially with families living further apart than they used to. Long-term loneliness is associated with an increased risk of certain mental and physical health problemhs.
  • Start a project or join a group that interests you, even if online. It doesn't really matter what it is and if there is not one available then start one of your own.
  • Do someone a good turn. Helping others takes the emphasis off ourselves for a bit and the sense of not being 'the only one' feeling this way can make a real difference to our own sense of wellbeing.

    A call to the Doctor can put you in touch with an organisation called 'Talkworks' which is an organisation that helps a person to identify what they are feeling and why and most importantly how to change it.

    Having practiced mindfulness for some time, I have personally found that sometimes it is good just to sit with that feeling of unease without trying to change it. Rather than trying to distract ourselves with TV, food or activities. In ignoring our emotions we are doing ourselves a disservice. Where does this emotion go?

    Emotion is just in motion. Energy is supposed to move by its very nature. If we don't allow it to move by expressing it in some way then it will get 'stuck' and cause blockages in our outer bodies, the ones we can't see which are also known as our energy bodies or auric field. Eventually leading to some form of disorder or disease.

    Real and lasting health is about honouring when we aren't feeling good, as well as when we are.
    The key is to give ourselves enough space to recognise our needs. Perhaps we need a rest, some company or a change of some sort?

    Registered Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and help us to understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health issues, giving you the tools to help yourself.
    Make an appointment with Exeter's nutritionist to find out more about how you can take control of your own health.
