Transient depression is most often caused by low blood sugar.
Transient depression is most often caused by low blood sugar. Drinking a blenderized mixture of ½ cup of raw fresh fruit (such as orange, or pineapple, or whatever fruit appeals to you) and ½ cup unheated honey usually brings immediate relief. Drinking a little and then sipping the rest over a 1-to-2-hour period often creates better results. If hypoglycemia or diabetes is involved, 1-3 ounces raw cream or ½-1 avocado or other raw fat (e.g., raw coconut cream, unsalted raw cheese) should be blended in or eaten with the fruit and honey mixture.
To handle repeated and extended spells of depression, see We Want to Live: the Primal Diet Appendix H, page 138, and Appendix L, page 141.
Chronic depression is most often caused by low bacterial levels in the digestive tract and/or protein deficiencies. Eating at least 1 pound of raw meat and ½ cup raw cream daily helps ease chronic depression.
To completely resolve it, I suggest eating “high” meat. (See the book The Recipe For Living Without Disease, High Meat, Chapter 15.
Doing something creative inspires creative thinking for problem solving instead of worrying. Concentrating on creating positive things and experiences helps create a better future. Then making choices based on yourself experiencing a more suitable future makes your future a better reality. Believing in sayings like "too good to be true" closes the door to wonderful experience. Inventions are rarely made by proving something can't be done. Inventions are made by focusing on the possibilities that something can be done. If I had believed what the doctors said about my probabilities, I would be dead. If I had listened to what most of my teachers and counselors told me my aptitudes were, I would not have been able to read a book, much less write this one.
What will you invent or create of your future? For suggestions on creating happiness, see We Want To Live: the Primal Diet, re: Awareness, page 325, and Mental illness, page 290.
Depression, Fatigue, Drugged… All Turned Around Wes's story:
Prior to getting into [your recommended] raw food, nutrition and healthful living, my health was terrible. I suffered severe (clinical) depression, and often felt suicidal. I also often felt very fatigued, had a terrible complexion, and took many pharmaceutical drugs (antidepressants, sedatives, and antibiotics). I had practically zero self-esteem. I felt physically and emotionally ruined. That went on for a few years. Raw food was one of the biggest and most powerful factors in turning myself and my life around, dramatically for the better. Since then, things have only gotten better for me and my life, exponentially.
