Antidepressants can have unwanted side effects. So, a new treatment for depression with few side effects would be very welcome. Here are my top picks.
1. Work on Your Eating Habits
Research shows clear links between diet and mental health. In fact, there have been so many studies that have shown improving nutrition can prevent and treat mental illness that nutritional psychiatry is now mainstream.
Foods high in refined sugars and carbohydrates contribute to depressive symptoms while organic fruits and vegetables alleviate them.
A balance diet of whole foods is your best bet. Cook at home as much as possible. Avoid restrictive eating plans which just cause more stress.
