Yeast Infection Home Remedy

Looking for a yeast infection home remedy?

Yeast infections can be very uncomfortable. Sometimes the itching and discomfort can get so bad it is difficult to go about your daily routine. Wouldn’t it be great if there were an easy remedy instead of having to make an appointment at the medical clinic and go through all that hassle?

In fact, you may have an infection remedy in your kitchen right now. You may not even need to go to the store to get relief.

Before we start talking about remedies, it will help if you know a little about how these infections work. These infections are caused by bacteria we harbor in our bodies all the time… Candida albicans. Usually Candida behaves itself, and helps us fight off the other nasty bugs out there.

When there is an imbalance in the body, Candida can grow out of control causing an infection. Imbalances can be caused by illness, stress, anxiety, diabetes or the consumption of too many foods that break down into sugars in the body.

Foods that do this are anything sugary and carbohydrates. If you balance these foods with protein and vegetables, the chances of developing a food-related yeast infection will drop.

Now it’s time to look in your kitchen for that yeast infection home remedy. The most commonly used home remedy is plain yogurt. You may have that in your refrigerator already if you use it for cooking or you like your yogurt plain.

If you do find some plain yogurt with active cultures hidden inside your fridge, freeze a small dollop of it to insert in the area affected by the yeast infection. The Lactobacillus acidophilus inside the yogurt is the active ingredient here. It can restore your balance of bacteria and cure your infection. Be careful… this remedy is messy, but effective.

If you don’t have any yogurt, what about a clove of garlic? Garlic powder won’t cut it here… you need a clove. If you have minced garlic in a jar in the refrigerator, it may be possible to use if you can wrap it securely in enough cheesecloth to prevent any of the small bits from escaping.

The whole point is you want to be able to retrieve it all after a few hours. Garlic is fast and effective. It only needs to be in place for a short time. If you need to apply it again the next day, go ahead, but again only leave it for a few hours.

If you don’t have garlic cloves, check your medicine cabinet for tea tree essential oil. A few drops of this potent oil will usually give you a lot of relief. Tea tree oil is very strong, so you may want to mix those few drops with a couple tablespoons of olive oil.

The yeast infection home remedy you need may already be at hand. If you’re prone to infections, it may pay to keep a few of these items on hand so you can treat it at the first sign of trouble.

The Three C’s of Stress Hardiness

We all know people who do well under stressful conditions, in fact, they seem to thrive on it.  These are “stress-hardy” folks, and here are three clues to how do it.  They form the basis of what’s called Transformational Coping.

In essence, stress-hardy people place potentially stressful events into a new frame of reference.  They have learned how to transform a stressful situation into an opportunity to be creative, or growth-enhancing, or maybe even uplifting or humorous. Rather than doing battle with an uncomfortable or unpleasant event, or taking it personally, they allow the situation to challenge them to learn, and to grow.

Here are the 3 C’s of transformational coping that stress-hardy people thrive on:

Challenge.  If we define stress as reacting to a comment or a situation as threatening, stress-hardy people take the view that a difficult  person or circumstance is a challenge that they can rise to.  Rather than feeling threatened, they reframe the event as an opportunity to be creative.  How do they do this?  One simple secret is that they become curious.  Rather than become defensive or falling back on old scripts, they take a moment to pause and get curious as to what would lead a person to make such an ‘outlandish’ claim.  They wonder what they might be missing, and they take an interest in finding other ways to approach situations that makes them stretch, and perhaps even shape events to their advantage.

Commitment. Stress-hardy people find meaning in their work. They feel that their work is connected to a higher purpose, and that their role contributes to a larger goal. Here are three possible answers a mason gives to the question:  What are you doing? “I am laying bricks,” is a cynical response. “I am earning a living,” is a joyless response. “I am building a cathedral,” shows a person connected to a larger purpose. The connection to something larger allows stress-hardy people to consider as minor annoyances things that might stop another person dead in his or her tracks.

Control. Stress-hardy people know when to hold and when to fold. They know when they can control events and when they can’t. They know how to let go and flow with events until they find an opening when they can again assert themselves. While they may give up, they don’t give in. They alter their strategy, including perhaps altering their goal, by going more deeply into their intention. They are attached to their intention, to expressing themselves, and to their goals, but not necessarily to the form that these take.

Disadvantages of Watching Pornography

In the olden days, the word ‘addiction’ was largely confined to either dependence on substance (addiction to drugs) or behavioral addiction (gambling). Addiction can be defined as the repetition of a habit which an individual does with his/her complete knowledge. In other words, they clearly know and understand that they have to leave the particular habit of either ingesting a substance or performing a specific action, but cannot refrain from doing the same. The habit may prove harmful in the long run as it might lead to compulsive use.

Pornography can be found in various forms such as books, postcards, photographs, drawing, animation, film, video (video games). Before two decades, if an individual has to watch porn, he has to rent out a video. Although growth of internet has brought many advantages, there are also few exceptions like porn, which any one can access by a single click.

As with all addictions, individuals of all ages share this vice of pornography, they usually start with soft porn. Similar to drugs, they will also need larger doses to make them feel high. They will start searching for more explicit porn content. Although no survey has been done to clarify the factor from small to high dosage, it cannot be ruled out that watching porn leads to negative effects in many cases such as:

Addicts feel isolate, spend large amount of time locked in their rooms or own world. Watching pornography individually separates them from social contact dissolving into a fantasy world far from reality. Pornographic addicted individuals may indulge in imagination with multiple partners by watching porn thus causing disillusionment in family lives.

Men, who are addicted, try to become dominant, introvert, deal with anxiety, and develop low self esteem. Porn makes the real universe and world boring leaving its viewers dissatisfied and less sensitive to the emotional feelings of everyday life. According to a survey, men exposed to large volume of pornography tend to be less responsible in their career and suffer from reasoning ability.

Men who view pornography in a very young age have been found to view women only as objects of desire than to have respect for them as human beings. They can also suffer from guilt, shame, failure of rejection or humiliation.

The best way to overcome the addiction is to become socially active. Isolation and loneliness are said to be the main contributing factors. Addicts who have been given proper professional guidance and assistance have overcome and conquered their habit of watching porn.

Stress And Anxiety – Do You Need ‘Nerve Pills’?

“It requires a great deal of inexperience to be beyond the reach of anxiety”. (anon)

This is the age of anxiety! Seventy percent of people today are stressed out from overload – working harder for the same pay, juggling family and work, and worrying about money. As well, some people have Anxiety disorders such as panic, phobias, obsessions and compulsions – illnesses in which anxiety comes from within. To reduce stress and anxiety effectively we need to understand our symptoms and emotions, worry accurately, learn coping strategies, and find support. But there must be an easier way – what about ‘nerve pills’?

A tranquillizer can calm racing minds, slow pounding hearts, ease tight breathing, relax tight, painful muscles and help us sleep. The Benzodiazepines, such as ‘Xanax’ (alprazolam – short-acting) or ‘Rivotril’ (clonazepam – longer acting) can help in dealing with major life stresses especially if taken at night when anxiety symptoms such as insomnia interfere significantly with work or caring for a child.

But taking more than just occasional doses can cause problems. Tranquillizers have potentially dangerous side effects including reduced mental alertness, concentration and memory, as well as physical unsteadiness. Driving may become dangerous, they may precipitate a depression and react badly with alcohol. Regular use can lead to tolerance and increasing doses – people in abusive situations or who have problems with alcohol or other drugs seem to be especially at risk for this. Tranquillizers must be stopped gradually, or you risk dangerous withdrawal symptoms, including seizures. In most stressful situations, it would be better to experience and express our emotions rather than just numbing them, and apply the energy of anxiety to finding healthier ways to become equal to the stress.

Anxiety disorders such as generalized anxiety, panic, phobias, obsessions and compulsions, have much more severe symptoms and anti-anxiety medications may be invaluable in allowing us to function, at least in the early stages. But in the long run it’s best to correct any underlying biochemical imbalance using antidepressant drugs such as ‘Paxil’ or ‘Zoloft’. These damp down excessive or obsessional worry without making you dopey, reduce the frequency and severity of panic attacks and treat the depression which is often part of mood disorders. Knowing you can control your anxiety improves motivation to find more long lasting success through self-management. However, a few people need to take medication indefinitely just to function adequately, and they shouldn’t feel any more guilty about it then a person with diabetes taking insulin.

Anxiety disorders can start young – many students quit high school because of a phobia about public speaking. If we started teaching about anxiety and coping skills early, perhaps we could reduce the rates of serious anxiety disorders and alcohol and drug abuse.

Tranquilizers really help in disabling anxiety, but using drugs (or alcohol) to handle the common stresses of modern life is dangerous – like painting over a rust spot on your car without removing the rust. If you do take tranquilizers, work closely with your doctor, aiming to gradually reduce the dose while learning effective coping techniques. Ask your doctor about cognitive-behavioural therapy, anxiety programs, and support groups. Yoga, relaxation, some herbal remedies and acupuncture can also be helpful. Read books and learn from others who have recovered, because with knowledge, skills, support and persistence, the battle against anxiety can be won!

11 Effective Home Remedies for High Cholesterol

High cholesterol or hypercholesterolemia is a disorder consisting in excess or surplus cholesterol in blood stream. Cholesterol is a wax like substance present in the cell walls or membranes all over the body. Our heart, brain, liver, skin, muscles, and intestines naturally bear cholesterol that produce certain hormones, bile acids and vitamin D needed to digest fat. However the requirement of cholesterol for the purpose is quite low. If the blood contains excess cholesterol, it may get deposited in major arteries like coronary arteries, carotid arteries to the brain or arteries that carry blood to legs, resulting in narrowing down or blockage of the passage way and decreased blood supply.

Blockage of coronary arteries leads to angina or chest pain and heart attack. This happens due to the accumulation of cholesterol on artery walls and deprivation of heart muscles of oxygen. Blockage of carotid artery by cholesterol deposits leads to brain stroke and blockage of arteries supplying blood to legs leads to claudication or pain with walking. Women after menopause and men below 55 are at the risk of developing hypercholesterolemia. LDL or bad cholesterol, HDL or good cholesterol and triglycerides make up for the total measure of cholesterol in the body. High cholesterol can be very dangerous, for it produces no symptoms. However some people with high cholesterol may have breathlessness, general fatigue, excessive sweating, heaviness in chest region, yellowish patches around eyelids, cholesterol deposits around cornea and whitish edges of cornea.

Factors Causing HDL

1. Aging

2. Heredity

3. Obesity

4. Sedentary life style

5. Intake of fat rich diet

6. Mental stress

7. Alcoholism

8. Smoking

9. Underlying diseases like thyroid, high blood pressure, diabetes, that of kidney, liver etc.

Home Remedies

1. Onion juice can lower cholesterol to a large extent.

2. Simply drinking 8-10 glasses of water can bring down cholesterol by enabling proper excretion.

3. Soy products, rich in isoflavones can effectively regulate cholesterol levels.

4. An infusion may be prepared by boiling 2 tablespoon coriander seeds in a glass of water. It has to be drunk thrice a day and can greatly lower cholesterol.

5. Sunflower seeds also regulate cholesterol levels to a large extent.

6. One may boil 10 cinnamon sticks in 6 cups water, add one tablespoon honey and drink while the solution is hot. This is a beneficial home remedy for lowering cholesterol.

7. Drinking a glass of water every morning by mixing one teaspoon lime juice and one teaspoon honey is an effective cholesterol lowering remedy.

8. Consuming fenugreek seeds would help to control high serum cholesterol.

9. Indian bedellium extracts have cholesterol lowering agents.

10. Almonds and walnuts can help to bring down cholesterol levels.

11. Fiber rich diet can keep cholesterol within check.

The Physical and Mental Benefits of Muay Thai Kickboxing

The sport of Muay Thai has certainly taken the martial arts stage by storm, as year after year, more people are becoming aware of the sport. Even though it’s not as popular as western-style boxing, Muay Thai combines your 4 limbs into a deadly, yet elegant combination of strikes, making it one of the most intense martial arts discipline.

It is one sport that requires dexterity, strength and stamina. Of course, it isn’t complete without adding one’s mental toughness to the equation. The sport goes beyond self defense and aesthetic values. The conditioning endured during Muay Thai sessions will greatly help your body, strength, stamina and overall health.

Fit Body

For those wanting to beat that dreaded weight scale or perhaps just wanting to sculp their body into perfection, Muay Thai is a great addition to your fitness agenda. The intense exercises and drills will vigorously burn the calories and melt the fat, as almost every part of your body is constantly moving in a speedy combination of kicks and punches. With the jab of a left arm and a devastating strike from your right knee, the exercises will get you lean, fit and also a proportionate body.

Mental Toughness

Like all martial arts, it’s not about haphazardly punching and kicking, but the mental strategy that every good fighter must have. Your mind will be trained to make decisive moves and when to use those moves. Your mental alertness must constantly be on point at all times. Inside the ring, your confidence will be tested, as the hungriest fighter will most likely win. Muay Thai doesn’t only incorporate your physical body, but the brain that controls that body, so it’s always tested.

Leg Strength

The use of your lower body is what gives Muay Thai its unique reputation. You’ll find that the exercises and drills will strengthen your leg just as effective as going to the gym. Learning how to deliver a bone-cracking kick strengthens the muscles of your quads and calves. In addition, your knee will greatly benefit from its various exercises as it trained to help deliver that knock out blow. From roundhouse kicks, to a knee strike, every muscle in your lower body will greatly benefit.

Increase in Overall Vitality/Core Strength

It won’t happen overnight, but with proper discipline, the Muay Thai student can improve their overall strength. Most people think of strength as having a six-pack and towering biceps and although Muay Thai could help achieve that, it’s the strength you’ll earn after the hard work you clock in that matters. You might have to take a couple of punches at first, but the boost in your strength is simply priceless. The fast-paced movements of the sport will truly push the boundaries of your body.

Stress Relief

You build up a hefty load of stress during the day and sometimes it’s a nice feeling to punch, kick or elbow something. Due to the physical stress (the good kind) and the fast-paced action you’ll endure during training sessions, you’ll focus on you and the exercise. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to meet new people and socialize in a different environment.

Muay Thai is a great sport for just about anyone. Of course, different people will need different levels of endurance. Don’t be afraid to slow it down if you have to. Ask questions if you’re not sure about a move and take regular breaks. Be sure to consult your physician before choosing a new physical journey for safety measures. Most importantly, enjoy your time practicing the sport.

Depersonalization – The Path Out

The majority of people who experience depersonalization believe they are ill and also believe this fact has been overlooked by their physician. They rush from doctor to doctor, in hopes that one of them will hit on the “true” diagnosis. When they come up “empty handed” they wonder why no one is able to locate the source of their problem. Frustration sets in because they believe something has been “missed” or “overlooked.” They worry that they will have to live with this intrusion for the rest of their lives. They become angry and defeated when they cannot find the answer to this difficulty. This is because they are looking in the wrong place. The answer is not where they might believe.

Did they ever think that maybe, just maybe, nothing was found because there is nothing to be found?
– When you treat something as an illness, when it is not, relief is nearly impossible to locate. This is a fact.
– When you think of yourself as ill, day in and day out, you will eventually begin to feel ill…or at
least convince your mind and body that you are ill. Watch your thoughts…you can change them.
– When you constantly believe in a mysterious trigger or a puzzle surrounding your symptom,
you will tie your mind up in knots trying to piece this puzzle together, creating an exhaustion of
mind and body.
– Treating a non-illness with medication often has little or no effect whatsoever.

Bottom line, depersonalization is not an illness. You are not sick and even though you feel “strange” this is not indicative of illness. It is the product of extreme stress and anxiety.

When one’s belief system takes on an idea (even if it is a misconception), and ponders this idea on a daily basis, the brain eventually takes this as fact. The mind has undergone a type of negative self-hypnosis. It has talked itself in believing a misconception, from constant thought concerning a “what if” probability.

This is why it is imperative to take a second look at your belief system, concerning depersonalization. Take a very close look and note:

– Are you telling yourself this couldn’t possibly be anxiety related?
– Are you telling yourself they missed something?
– Are you telling yourself that something is damaged or “off” in your mind or body?
– Are you “sure” this is a sign of sickness?
– Do you actually believe that medication is the only path out of depersonalization?

Take any one of these beliefs and repeat it to yourself daily and you will have fallen into the trap of negative self-hypnosis. Your mind has grasped a misconception which is keeping you trapped within the habit of depersonalization. This is self-induced, and self perpetuated, whether you are aware of this or not.

We are what we think about all day. It is time to turn this around by changing the way you think, changing your attitude and letting go of a belief system that is holding you captive. It’s time to cut the misconception loose and go on with your life.

You do have the power to undo these feelings. It takes a little practice but it can be accomplished. It begins with our step by step recovery plan, beginning with our Four Steps to Relief:
1- Acknowledge and Accept
2- Re-Evaluate Your Beliefs
3- Reprogram
4- Re-Focus

These four steps will take you OUT of INTROSPECTION and out of FALSE BELIEFS. You have convinced yourself that you are “ill” when you are not. This is why the mind/body remains “stuck.” Our program explains these four steps in detail and guides you out of stubborn depersonalization and derealization.

Alter this belief system and watch how quickly the mind rejuvenates, once the burden of false belief has lifted.

Practice these steps and you will find the depersonalization lifts and the necessity for medications is no longer a matter. For further elaboration on these steps feel free to contact me.

This along with our Neutralizing Diet and Behavioral Modification treatment will lead to a permanent recovery from Depersonalization and Derealization.

Highly Sensitive People and "Being Psychic" – HSP Not ESP-Reading Non-Verbal Signals

High sensitivity is essentially a naturally occurring tendency for the brain to process incoming stimuli in more detail. It occurs in 15-20% of the population of all higher animals including human beings. This extra processing takes more time and means that an HSP will sometimes be more occupied and even over-stimulated when trying to assimilate the meaning of high speed, complex and shifting social or environmental information. At the same time, processing in greater detail permits the capture of subtleties and nuances that others might pass over or experience only minimally.

Several of the questions in Elaine Aron’s HSP Self-test aim specifically to assess the quality of inter-personal sensitivity in the test taker.

  • “When people are uncomfortable in a physical environment I tend to know what needs to be done to make it more comfortable (like changing the lighting or the seating)”
  • “Other people’s moods affect me.”

HSP’s generally score high on these items. This is significant because other human beings, their actions, and expressions of emotion are processed with the same depth of detail and attention to nuance that characterizes all HSP processing

Emotion researchers inform us that up to 90% of all emotional communication is done non-verbally.

Human beings communicate their feelings, not just with words, but through tone of voice, volume, speed of speech, turn-taking, pattern of eye contact, facial expression, body posture, hand gestures, changes in color (such as blushing or paling), and more subtly still by physiological changes in breathing or heart rate which may be perceptible to a highly attuned observer (Schore, 2005).

Ability to read and respond to these indicators is already developed when we are pre-verbal infants. Attention to speech eventually takes priority in our interpersonal exchanges and the underlying ability to read non-verbal signals becomes largely unconscious and automatic even though it continues to underpin and enlarge our understanding of what our conversational partner intends.

These non-verbal signals constitute a sort of emotional language that we emit and interpret in parallel to our speech and we respond emotionally with feelings of wariness and anxiety, or comfort and security, depending on what is being signaled.

Highly sensitive individuals are also highly sensitive to this play of emotional signal and response, but like the rest of us, they may be unaware of the degree to which they are reading and responding to their partner’s non-verbal communications.

Many HSP’s wonder if they are “psychic”?

They know that they get “feelings” about places, things and especially people. Human nature being what it is, pleasant feelings of acceptance, warmth or interest are not worrisome, but HSP’s, with their attention to detail unconsciously notice mixed signals, or signals which could suggest anger, disapproval or rejection. Anxiety produces physical sensations in the body such as increased heart rate, constricted breathing and the release of chemicals that prepare us for fight or flight. HSP’s are more subtle readers of their own bodily responses as well and these unpleasant sensations may not pass unnoticed. They may however be misinterpreted as “negative vibes” and presumed to be emanating from their conversational partner rather than originating in themselves.

This misreading becomes problematic if HSP’s act on their feelings by withdrawing, avoiding or by responding with irritation, anger or hurt which may not appear justified by the surface exchange between the two.

It is useful therefore, for HSP’s who do get “feelings” about people to take a moment to question their assumptions.

People typically try to modulate the feelings that they show on the surface so that they are in keeping with the demands of the situation. But this means that people often feel more than they show. HSP’s with their extra awareness of nuance in communication often pick up on this depth or mixture of contradictory feelings in others but they make the mistake of presuming that it is directed at them often in a negative way which is actually unwarranted.

    An imaginary example might be a situation where a friend is required to say something mildly critical to an HSP acquaintance. The friend approaches the exchange with mild anxiety and perhaps even some resentment towards a third party who has insisted that this be done… so that mixed emotional signaling underpins the exchange. The highly observant HSP may misread this as hidden aggression or anger and respond more strongly than the situation appears to demand on the surface.

    This is because the HSP, in the moment of perceiving the unpleasantness, feels rising in themselves their own history of being criticized, rejected and hurt in the past and they respond as if there is imminent danger of re-occurrence. Their strong reaction is in turn confusing and upsetting to their partner… and the situation intensifies problematically for both parties as the HSP hooks their partner’s ordinary tension up to their own personal fears and negative expectations.

Reality check

How can this be prevented?

In a word, “Ask!”

HSP sensitivity and attunement to others is a gift but it should not always be permitted to remain at the level of “feelings”. An HSP faced with mixed or confused emotional signals from their partner may have to address the experience consciously and rationally. Often the use of a simple, open question will permit clarification and defuse the tension.

Examples:

  • “I get the feeling that there is something about this that bothers you?”
  • “I wonder if there is more you would like to say about this…”
  • “I feel as if you are feeling a bit upset about this …(without specifying a possible cause)”
  • “You seem to be of two minds about this.”

HSP’s are uniquely situated.

Human beings live in a social world in which we are constantly attempting to communicate or ideas and feelings not only through words but also through gestures and glances. HSP’s are sensitive readers of these signals and with a little conscious awareness they are uniquely situated to translate this nuanced understanding into better, deeper, relationships with those around them.

Green Tea is a Natural Remedy For Constipation

If you are looking for a natural remedy for constipation, there is help.

Although each person’s routine is different, you pretty much know when you’re constipated. However, you might not know what’s causing the problem.

Green tea is considered a natural cure for constipation mainly because it promotes “friendly” bacteria in the intestines thereby encourages bowel regularity.

These friendly bacteria helps increase your resistance to infection, helps maintain bowel regularity, and promotes digestion. It has also been reported that regular consumption of green tea results in a reduced odor from the feces.

Constipation can also be caused by stress, dehydration, hemorrhoids, or anal fissures. A colon with weak muscle tone can also cause constipation.

If there aren’t any serious underlying causes, there is a natural constipation relief.

Make sure you drink plenty of water. Water adds soft bulk to stools. It’s also required by the cells of the colon to lubricate the stools’ passage.

You should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. If you’re physically active or if you drink coffee or soda that makes you urinate often, you should drink 12 glasses a day.

Dietary fiber absorbs water and makes stools fuller and easier to pass.

Good food sources include prunes, apples, kidney beans, and other legumes, and other oats.

Prune juice, of course, can help you with your problem.

Although it’s best to get your fiber from food sources, you can also take a supplement when your meals aren’t supplying enough.

If you can afford, eat organic foods. They are healthier choice because they are free from hormones, pesticides, and preservatives. These chemicals are toxic to our system which causes a “traffic” or delay to the normal flow.

In the long run, you would be saving money by buying organic items because you will be a lot healthier, thereby less prone to sickness.

Depression and a Relationship Breakup – Coping With Emotional Distress

Mild depression resulting from a relationship breakup is unfortunately something that will effect most of us at some point in our lives. Making sure that the way you feel does not take a more permanent hold is something that you must try and avoid. Making the right choices for your well being under any kind of emotional distress will be extremely hard. Lets look at some ways to relieve emotional distress and hopefully help you cope during this tough time.

Relationship breakup is always very distressing and the ability to think rationally about your situation is often severely hampered. The first thing you must do is take a step back from the breakup, if you are still trying to communicate with the other person the most positive thing you can do is to cease contact and take time out for yourself. This is a big step and a difficult one to take in your current emotional state, but it will stand you in good stead for the days to come. Taking time out to collect your thoughts does not mean isolate yourself, on the contrary, your friends and family are extremely important at this difficult time.

If you are really struggling to cope during the first few days after a breakup, natural stress relief tablets are readily available, “Kalms” is a brand name herbal medicine that works very well, and often brings almost immediate relief from stressful situations. Avoiding alcohol is a must, as alcohol is a proven depressant and will only make you feel much worse. Any kind of exercise will also make you feel much better as exercise releases endorphins into your system which are your body’s natural feel good chemical. The idea of anything physical at this time might not seem very appealing, but even a brisk walk will do wonders for lifting your mood.

Along with the mental distress, depression from a relationship breakup can also take a heavy toll on your physical well being. Lack of sleep and loss of appetite can make every day tasks hard to accomplish. Try and eat well, making sure you include plenty of fruit and fibre in your diet as this will also help lift your mood. A course of multivitamins and omega 3 is also a good supplement to your diet during this time.
