Ohhhh hun, there are loads of hatefull and spitefull people out there, try not to let it get to you♥
How about eating more foods that are going to hit your brain at a natural chemical level ~ like foods rich in Tryptophan, Vitamins B3 and B6 and magnesium will do??
These foods in conjunctionh with each other do a brilliant of conquering the blues i reckon.
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that's used by the brain - along with B6, niacin (or niacinamide), and magesium (known as the antistress mineral) - to produce serotonin (the natural feel good drug), a neurotransmitter that carries messages between the brain and one of the body's biochemical mechanisms of sleep.
The EFA's in foods rich in omega 3's such as cold water fishes like tuna, salmon, sardines and whiting are also essential in this process to nourish the neurons that are receiving the messages from the neurotransmitters
The Doctor doesn't tell you that when you go complaining of stress, anxiety and depression now does he .............. he surely should though.
Tryptophan will help induce natural sleep; reduce pain sensitivity; act as a nondrug antidepressant; alleviate migraines; aid in reducing anxiety and tension and help relieve some symptoms of alcohol-related body-chemistry disorders and aid in control of alcoholism.
Best natural food sources of Tryptophan are; cottage cheese, milk, meat, fish, turkey, bananas, dried dates, peanuts and all protein rich foods.
Best natural food sources for magnesium are: leafy and green vegies, nuts and seeds, cold water fishes such as tuna, sardines, whiting and salmon.
Best natural food sources for niacin are: the white meat of chicken, whole wheat products, roasted peanuts, fish, eggs, avoacadoes, dates, figs and prunes.
Best natural food sources for vitamin B6 are: wheat germ, fish, soybeans, brewer's yeast, cantaloupe, cabbage, blackstgrap molasses, unmilled rice, eggs, oats, peanuts and walnuts.
Take a good quality multi B complex supplement including all the B's ie: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12 you will support your body in dealing with the everyday stresses life throws at us. ie: new job, new home, school studies ...... nasty, spitefull people. The B complex of vitamins is essential for healthy digestive, neural and immune systsem functioning.
The whole food source of tryptophan and all other vitamins, minerals amino acids etc.... will always be the most nutritious and easily assimilable form.
Drink more fresh filtered water and pump up your body's energy levels by hydrating yourself properly too♥being sluggish and dehydrated do some awfully surprising things to our bodies. It's an awfully big ask to expect our bodies to function smoothly without sufficient water to lubricate our joints, digest our foods, filter and detox all the nasties we are exposed to on a daily basis.
Try to cut out sodas and soft drinks and diet drinks, coffee, tea and alcohol (if you drink any) as these are all terribly dehydrating and all do a fine job of robbing you of your essential B complex of vitamins which are essential for healthy neural, digestive and immune system functioning.
Get out there in the fresh air and sunshine and do something that makes you feel good ~ 10 - 15 minutes daily of safe sun exposure will go a long way to improving your mood and self esteem ~ go for a wander in the park, or walk an extra bus stop, how about going for a walk along the beach?? anything really that puts a smile on your dial ~ hold your head high hun and don't let the haters get you down. you are entitled to be happy and healthy and you are special, loving, kind and individual ~ get passionat about any one single thing that really ignites your spark!! Reclaim your vitality and spark♥
Take care of you♥
I sincerely do wish you all the best of health & vitality♥
