Traditional Chinese Medicine recognizes that food is an essential foundation for a balanced mind. The food you eat, the air you breath, the water you drink, the rest you have, the work you do, the love you recieve, the thoughts you think all contribute to who you are.

Nutrition and Depression & Anxiety are vital for emotional balance. You eat everyday, why not take a bit of extra time to be kind to yourself and choose foods that nourish you, rather than expend energy trying to eliminate "foods" that hinder you. A balanced food plan are an excellent foundation for Natural Anxiety Treatments.

When looking at foods, we consider the source and how your body is fit to metaloblize the food. Foods are one of the best Natural Remedies for Depression & Anxiety.

What Foods Enhance the Mental and Emotional Body?

Our foods are rarely grown in nutrient rich soils or balanced environments that are preservative free. Thankfully, our bodies speak to us through discomfort and emotions. We can add in needed foods or supplements when we are educated about the signs and symptoms displayed from deficiencies.

Iodine deficiencies can contribute to panick attacks and low moods. Supplementation under the care of a pracitioner are often recommended, but adding in foods rich in iodine is an excellent place to start. Foods that contain iodine are tomatoe, rhubarb, dulse, cabbage, bananas. A common natural anxiety treatment.

Iron can help with fatigue that is often experienced with depression and anxiety. Iron rich foods are meat, fish and poultry, tahini, black strap molasses and raisins. Other non-animal sources of iron are best absorbed along with some vitamin C such as piece of fruit or vegetableand legumes.

Magnesium helps to relax the nervous system and tense muscles. Foods rich in Magnesium are halibut, almonds, brown rice, and avacodos. A common natural remedy for depression.

Licorice Tea helps to smooth the digestion and helps detoxify your liver which will help relieve the body of excess toxins and waste.

Vitamin B Complex helps to regulate adrenal hormones and energy. Foods high in B vitamins are: Tuna, Salmon, Potatoes, Spinach, Sunflower Seeds.

Fish and Flax oils are crucial for brain development and also helps hormone related mood imbalances.

Aloe Vera Juice is high in Vitamin A, C, E, D, B1, B2 and other minerals. This is an excellent source of nutrients to nourish the digestive track and help calm the mind.

Wheat Intolerance and Celiac are on the rise. In many cases these foods contribute to inflammation in the intestinal track, causing issues with absorbtion.


Are You Absorbing Your Nutrients?

In Chinese Medicine your Spleen and Stomach are responsible for taking in your foods, transforming and transpoting the nutrients. If you have used antibiotics, excess alcohol, over processed foods, Birth Control, raw vegetables, you digestive system may be comprimised and this will hinder the way you absorb foods.

Symptoms of digestive imbalances are:

Loose Bowel Movements • Constipation • Bloating

Joint Pain • Headaches • Cysts • Insomnia

Here at Fertile Way we will spend time evaluating each individual inorder make specific food and nutrient recommendations.
