Psihonutriție: Hrană pentru minte, hrană pentru suflet

Did you know that broccoli or avocado are real hero vegetables in the fight against anxiety and depression? Or that, on the contrary, sausages can aggravate the depressive mood? How does eating during the day, at regular times, or at night affect our mental life?

I want to participate

From the esophagus to the end of the large intestine there are approximately 100 million nerve cells, a nervous system called the Enteric Nervous System (ENS). This "secondary brain" does not produce thoughts or ideas as our "primary" brain does, but it is in a natural and complex connection with it. It is not for nothing that we feel emotions "in the stomach" (actually, the mesentery) or say that "love passes through the stomach". In addition to nerve cells, which produce serotonin and other chemical mediators, like those in the brain, the gut is populated with a complex system of bacterial flora that constitutes the microbiome. The microbiome contains nearly 100 trillion bacteria and plays a fundamental role in digestion, food absorption, local protection and overall immunity. That is why it is important for the psyche not only what we eat, but also how and when we eat.

What is different in this workshop?

In the US, UK and other western countries like France, guidelines for the treatment of depression, anxiety (but also other more serious conditions such as schizophrenia) necessarily include Omega 3 acids, adequate doses of vitamins B, C, E, and minerals like Zinc or Magnesium through dietary supplements and/or personalized regimens. They already have as important a share in treatment as classic drugs. The content of the workshop is based on professional experience in France, on day-to-day work with patients or simply with people who have changed their mental state by actively engaging in their own food and lifestyle regime.
