Lifestyle Recommendations:

•   Reduce lifestyle stressors and establish boundaries for emotional well-being.

•   Seek professional help from qualified professionals trained to treat depression disorders.

•   Resist the urge/tendency to isolate; accept emotional support from true friends and counselors.

•   Check neurotransmitter function; consider testing for methylation or other SNPs that affect neurotransmitters such           as MTHFR, CBS, and COMT.

•   Rule out vitamin D deficiency, heavy metal toxicity, overgrowth of candida albicans, hormone imbalance,                               hypoglycemia, hypothyroidism and weak adrenal function.

•   Strive for 30-60 minutes of exercise a day; consider high-intensity training or aerobic activity to enhance brain-derived     neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and neurotransmitter function.

•   Consider practicing mindfulness or yoga to effectively handle stress.

•   Get help for substance addiction and smoking cessation.

Dietary Tips and Caveats:

•   Taper off and eliminate stimulants such as caffeine in energy drinks, coffee and chocolate.

•   Work with nutritionist to determine food sensitivities such as gluten and dairy; consider an elimination diet.

•   Replenish blood sugar by eating a healthy high protein breakfast, preferably by or before 10:00 am or within 2 hours         of waking.

•   Avoid foods that spike blood such as high-sugar snacks and beverages (includes sodas and fruit juices), refined                  carbohydrates, and high fructose corn syrup.

•   Eat high quality protein including whey or pea protein such as PaleoMeal® and PaleoMeal® DF, healthy fats and                whole foods at each meal to support the adrenals.

•   Snack on healthy proteins and fats such as raw nuts, seeds, avocados, and coconuts flakes to balance blood sugar            throughout the day; divide 3 meals into 5-6 smaller meals if digestion is sluggish or if fatigued.
