Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives?
Verified by Psychology Today
As someone who has personally recovered from depression through diet and lifestyle, I think this topic doesn't get nearly the attention it deserves.
I might add that at my lowest level, when considering suicide, I had severe digestive issues - to the point where I considered living exclusively on smoothies.
I was also taking anti-depressants at the time, which made me feel too calm, almost impervious to any emotion whatsoever.
Over the last 10 years I have radically changed my diet, paying particular attention to how my now-improved digestion has completely changed my outlook on life. After introducing fermented foods and probiotics into my daily ritual, I can honestly say that I feel the best I have ever felt. I no longer have a need for antacids or anti-depressants, and I doubt I ever will again.
Coincidence? Who knows. But I do know that this approach has radically changed my life.
