Is It Possible to Lift Depression by Changing Your Diet?


Do you suffer from depression and mood swings that seem to have no rational reason?

Have you tried everything to find relief from your depression and irrational moods and don’t know what else to try?


I have posted about this topic before, and I will continue to in the future as it is something that is so beneficial to so many, and so close to my heart.

For most of my life, I have suffered from severe mood swings that I thought was just hormonal, along with severe bouts of depression and I had no idea that it could be related to the foods I consumed on a regular (almost daily) basis. When I was young, my nick name was Pouty (which I hated). I have felt that I had no control over my emotions, and that even though I wanted to be happy and feel good, it just seemed like I could not consistently feel upbeat.

Over recent years, I have found out that the foods you eat and other things you use, can contribute powerfully to how you feel emotionally, not just physically.

What if you found out that by completely eliminating certain foods that you eat, you may be able to relieve depression, sadness, outbursts of anger and severe mood swings that seem to arise out of nowhere and appear in an instant? 

That is what I have found through working with a Quantum Techniques practitioner, Dr. Stephen Daniel.

Imagine for a moment a daily cycle that never seems to end…

Depression, sadness, mood swings, quick temper including rage, weight gain that you can’t seem to lose, bouts of crying, self loathing, etc… You wake up each morning to take your normal shower and you use organic “healthy” hair products & natural makeup & other self care products (if your a woman). Most days when you wake up you may indulge in a typical American diet, which may consist of  eggs & toast (maybe even sprouted wheat bread, yum!) or a bagel on the way to work, you pack a sandwich or wrap for lunch (you think your being healthy with that wrap and it’s made of whole wheat!). Then for dinner, you have soup & salad – with croutons of course, or pasta with grilled chicken & veggies, then for dessert while watching your evening shows, you might have a couple cookies or even some ice cream with a warm brownie – hello!).

And, because you suffer such deep depression, you seek help and you are possibly prescribed medication that is meant to manage your symptoms (which in many cases can also comes with it’s own slue of side effects).

What you don’t know is that your body’s energy system thinks wheat is a poison and reacts to wheat by suffering depression, sadness, mood swings and the other symptoms above and possible other internal issues you are not aware of, including but not limited to inflammation, allergies, skin issues, pain, weight gain that you just can’t lose no matter what you do, digestive distress or other digestive issues, feeling bloating & full after certain food, constipation, and a general decline in health possibly, as your body is not able to recover from daily toxin loads and environmental issues as easily since your body is trying to detoxify naturally from the toxic load every day, all day. Not only does your emotional health suffer, so does your physical health.

For me, just one bite of wheat, caused these side effects to last for days – well, no wonder, as I think I ate some form of wheat or sprouted wheat regularly, if not daily – daily consumption of wheat, every few hours and during a typical day, maybe an entire bagel, the bread or wrap for lunch, the bread at dinner and the flour in the soup as a thickener or stabilizer, and then the croutons and then the ice cream and brownie filled with flour (which is bleached wheat) – oh and the organic hair conditioner that included wheat germ oil for soft shiny frizz free healthy hair, every single day and you imagine the cycle of depression and other miserable symptoms never ending. I never gave my body a rest from the wheat – I consumed it every 2-3 hours during the day. Of course, I had no idea I was self sabotaging my entire life. I had no idea why I suffered severe depression. I had no idea why no matter how much I exercised or how much or how little I ate, I could not lose an ounce. Yes, I had suffered some traumatic events, however, I did not think they could be the complete cause of the severe daily depression that seemed to follow me for a good part of my life.

It does not have to be wheat, it could be corn, or cashews (which seem to cause similar symptoms as wheat for me – and I love cashews – but, now I avoid them) or any other item that you put into your body or even something that you use on your body or come into contact with, especially regularly.

With Quantum Techniques, at the onset of your first session,  your diet and personal care items are tested remotely with an advanced form of muscle testing against the issue you are seeking help for whether it is emotional or physical. This means, it is tested to see if it is contributing toward preventing your healing – if your body’s energy system considers it a toxin or “poison”. This is very specific to each person individually.

I will admit, I stuck to the diet for many months at first, and then, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to just add a few bites here and there back into my diet – a muffin here, a crab cake there, a bite of a brownie (or the whole thing), a piece of homemade cake! Boy was I way off base! As soon as I began consuming wheat again, the severe depression, mood swings, crying and fits of rage immediately followed. Within minutes of eating wheat, symptoms would return – yes minutes.

I finally GOT IT! In order for me to avoid suffering daily severe depression and the other symptoms, I had to 100% COMPLETELY give up ALL wheat based products – COMPLETELY! (and cashews come to find out, too). I also have to be careful to make sure that I don’t breathe them, use them it on my body, etc.

For some people the toxin effect of items is not even remotely as severe and can even be unnoticeable. However, if you suffer from unexplained depression, bouts of rage, sadness, crying or other symptoms, consider it could be something you consume or that you come into contact with and it just may be a simple fix – just possibly – not in every case. (There are many other explanations for depression – please do not just stop the care of the professional you are under).

Along with removing known toxins from my daily routine, I also continuously work toward emotional healing from the past and as issues arise. Working to clean up the non-physical aspects of trauma and other negative energies that have accumulated is extremely important in any healing journey including your physical well being & health.

I use Quantum Techniques in my own life for myself and family daily, as well as scheduled remote sessions helping others toward Optimal Health & wellness – it is a passion of mine and it brings me great joy when I can help others end their emotional suffering and move toward more peace & joy. I personally don’t feel we chose to be here as a human to suffer.
