There are many ways to help — medication, therapy — even food!
Go ahead and grab some dark leafy greens. Spinach, kale, or Swiss chard…severe depression has been linked with brain inflammation and these foods help reduce that.
And don’t forget folic acid. Conway said, “There seems to be something with their brains that need more folic acid not to be depressed.” A great source — tomatoes!
Next, select selenium-rich foods. Low levels are associated with poor moods. A good source is beans and legumes, Brazil nuts and oysters.
Conway also says dietary changes alone typically will not bring about a recovery from depression but for most patients, talk therapy and/or medication will give them enough relief to live a normal, happy life.
