The Unsuspecting Natural Treatment for Depression

Scientist have found an alternate way to treat the serious illness of depression, that isn’t polluting your body with prescribed drugs, and it is probably not what you’re expecting… Cashew nuts. Not only are they delicious and benefit the body in many different ways, they also mirror the drug Prozac that treats depression… Read below to see exactly how this nut naturally boosts your mood:

Mood- and mind-altering drugs that ostensibly “treat” depression are often just triggers for violent behavior, as we have seen repeatedly in the past. As documented by the website Psych Drug Shooters, the vast majority of mass murderers since the “Prozac boom” have been on these mood-altering, psychosis-inducing medications.

The good news is, there is a natural alternative for these dangerous psychotropic meds if you’re trying to battle depression: cashew nuts.

Yes, that’s right, a couple handfuls of cashews works like a prescription dose of Prozac, according to the Family Health Freedom Network, citing some of the latest research.

“Cashews are high in tryptophan, which the body turns into serotonin. Serotonin is responsible for mood regulation, healthy sleep and even sexual desire in the body,” the site reported.

“Increasing your tryptophan intake by consuming whole, natural cashews sounds like an excellent alternative to prescription drugs any day. They also provide a host of other benefits to the body as well, from your cardiovascular health to your digestive system.”

Health Tips Spot reported further that the cashew nut is also one of the world’s healthiest foods, though only a small percentage of the natural medicines database is focused on cashew benefits research.

The Secret Culprits Preventing You From Loosing Weight…

There is nothing worse than doing everything right, by the books, to realize you aren’t reaching your end goal weight…When the sweat, blood and tears don’t quite get you to your goal, there may be an underlying habit that is stopping you… Take a look at these 4 habits that may be robbing you from your goal weight:

You’re opting for diet soda.

Diet soda lures you with the promise of being a healthier option, but that’s hardly the case. Research shows that calorie-free, artificially-sweetened drinks may actually contribute to weight gain and increase cravings for real sugar. Opt for water instead.

You’re watching your favorite show while you eat dinner.

Sorry, “House of Cards” fans. You may want to pause your marathon when you’re eating. People tend to consume more when they’re distracted than they would if they were mindfully focusing on their meal, according to Harvard Health. It all comes down to your brain processing what’s going on in your body, which it can’t do as effectively when you’re watching Frank Underwood tear through the White House.

You’re not eating enough.

Kiss that cleanse goodbye. Slashing calories isn’t always the best way to get healthy, particularly if it means you’re not getting any nutrients at all. The ideal avenue to a healthy weight is to engage in a balanced diet. That means eating plenty of natural fruits, vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats

You’re not sleeping enough.

Getting proper rest can improve every aspect of your life — including the number on the scale. Research shows that sleep deprivation can lead to weight gain. Rack up Zs to help drop pounds.
