4 Healthy Ways To Help Curb Anxiety & Improve Mental Health

Anxiety is something that many people deal with every single day, and it can be a crippling vice to your overall mental health. It is estimated that nearly 20% of the U.S. population is confronted with an anxiety disorder each year, and those numbers have continued to rise higher and higher as we’ve had to deal with the COVID pandemic for the last two-plus years.

Unfortunately, many people tend to respond to “this is just normal life” when it comes to their anxiety, and refuse to make changes to improve their mental health. Thankfully, though, there are a few small tweaks that you can make in your life right now that can help with anxiety and boost your overall mental health.

4 Ways To Help Treat Anxiety In Your Life

  1. Eat Better and Get Your Nutrients – Doctors are quick to write a prescription for anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications. Yet, the number of people reporting anxiety and depression is at an all-time high. Why is that? Because we’re not a very healthy population. People aren’t eating their fruits and vegetables, and almost one in three are deficient in at least one vitamin.

Probiotics and the Mental Health Connection

Most of us are familiar with antibiotics, and chances are you have been prescribed one by your doctor at some point in your life. As defined by the CDC, “antibiotics are medicines that fight infections caused by bacteria in humans and animals either by killing the bacteria or making it difficult for the bacteria to grow and multiply.”

However, while antibiotics are definitely helpful when you’re dealing with an infection, there are four important words to note in that definition above: “by killing the bacteria.” Unfortunately,

Pandemic Brain Underscores The Importance Of Micronutrients

The COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed the world as we know it. Millions of people from all over the globe have died from the coronavirus, and among those that have recovered from it, there is still a significant number of people that continue to struggle with “Long COVID” symptoms months and months after they’ve received the “all clear” to return to their normal lifestyle.

But what about those that haven’t gotten COVID-19? Are they affected at all even though they have yet to contract the virus?

The Amount of Sugar We Consume Is Hurting Our Mental Health

America has a sugar problem.

Most of us will admit that we tend to have a sweet tooth from time to time, but when you actually look at the statistics surrounding sugar consumption in this country, the numbers are pretty jaw-dropping; the average American consumes over 70 grams of added sugar per day, which is well above the recommended maximum (38 grams for men and 25 grams for women and children).

The trends aren’t getting any better, either.

Did you know that less than 1 percent of those with Alzheimer’s develop it because of a rare genetic mutation? According to experts, that suggests that the remaining 99% of the Alzheimer’s population could’ve potentially prevented or dramatically slowed down the progression of the disease. “This doesn’t make sense,” you say. “Why then are there so many cases if so many cases can be prevented?” Read on to learn more and to learn why.

Brain Degeneration Starts Decades Before Serious Signs

Your Family Tree Holds the Secret: Look Back to Move Forward

“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” ~ Thomas Edison (1847-1931)

~

Look in your pantry. Consider the foods and drinks that form your diet. Now ask yourself, “would my furthest ancestor call what I eat food?” It’s hard to imagine that the oldest branch on your family tree would know what to do with twinkies, energy drinks, and grease-soaked fast-food wrappers. They may be quicker to identify the food as a potential poison than potential fuel for your body and brain–

Prepare for Impact: The Mental Health Tsunami Crests

Improving your diet and adding the right nutritional supplement improves your mental health. It isn’t an opinion; this is a fact. As Anne Wigmore said, “the food you eat can be the safest form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”

Processed Food, COVID-19, & the Trouble They Brew

The most significant mental health tsunami of all time arrives. Two waves primed for destruction and fatalities of the highest degree crests:

  • Wave One: “More than half of the food intake in North America is now drawn from the lowest level: ultra-processed ‘food.’ In other words,

What do honeybees know that we don’t? Brain Food Matters.

Ask any doctor, and they’ll tell you that their medical school favored a pharmaceutical dialogue when it came to conversations on mental health concerns, not nutrition. And as you know, what you’re taught matters. 

Current Treatments Aren’t Decreasing Mental Health Cases

Like an infomercial salesperson selling a two-for-the-price-of-one deal with the classic “Wait; there’s more!” line, the pharmaceutical companies bombard today’s world with promises of a quick-fix to many ailments. Then, in the few remaining seconds of the advertisement, a fast auctioneer-like voice lists the intense side effects of the drug.

You Don’t Have More Stress; You Have Less Resiliency

Today’s world includes different stressors than that of yesteryears but not more. 

Life is not more stressful than those who survived a world when wars drafted sons, telephones didn’t leave home, and a trip to the bathroom meant a dark, cold walk to the outhouse that may or may not be housing a raccoon for the night. What is different is the modern world’s response to stress. 

If pharmaceuticals worked, mental health cases wouldn’t rise

The number of mental health issues–
