In this timely episode we discuss mental health in a holistic (and wholistic) way.
We often look at it through the lens of disease - you have depression/anxiety/bi-polar and such, but what if we change the paradigm from this dis-ease to just a symptom? a symptom of the belief that you are separated.
There can be many different causes in these symptom from trapped trauma to heavy metals in the brain etc., but they can all boil down to the lack of connection. Connection to self, connection to community, connection to source energy.
We also share ways to foster connection - coming back to yourself and recognizing that you are not your trapped imprint of your mind. In fact, mental health cannot be achieved through the mind, but rather understanding that it started with an over connection TO the mind.
The real crisis is the crisis of faith and the wisdom and perfection of ourselves and the universe. Using our western ways to assess and label the child or adult is reductionistic in nature and doesn’t take into consideration our gifts and resources and the already healed parts of us that want to shine through if only allowed to be seen.
Some helpful nutrients reducing depression may include:
Omega 3 fatty acids: salmon, flaxseeds, chia seeds, watermelon seeds (chew them), tomatoes seeds, walnuts
Vitamin D: sunlight or quality supplement
Folate (B9): leafy greens, citrus fruits, beans, lentils
Iron: leafy greens, Spirulina or supplements
Magnesium: leafy greens such as spinach and kale, nuts and seeds such as almonds and pumpkin seeds
Zinc Sulfide: legumes or supplement (tincture)
B12: supplement with both coenzymes: methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin Selenium: brazil nuts, fish
Supplements for anxiety, depression or low mood ("funk"):
Lemon Balm (tea or tincture)
5-MTHF(=folate for cognition and mood)
