NATURAL ONLINE DOCTOR’S SUNDAY BLOG
If you suffer Mood Swings as a consequence of oncologic cancer treatment, see how to relieve this side effect with natural medicine. While all of the following recommendations are scientifically validated in the Anglo-American sphere as a general rule, they cannot replace a strictly personalized advice based on your individual metabolism.
Mood swings are a signal not for a mental illness but an unbalanced phase in life due to, e.g., physical problems or social disturbances. In case of a serious disease like cancer, mood swings are a common, yet additionally weakening consequence which needs to be re-balanced, in order to get out of the vicious cycle before it harms vital organs of the body like the heart, etc.
Unfortunately, in most cases mood swings are treated by the wrong medical discipline (psychiatrist/psychologist), and the wrong modalities (chemical drugs) which in fact close the vicious cycle, instead of breaking it up.
This problem has been well understood by, e.g., the American Psychosomatic Society at its 64th Annual Scientific Meeting, when the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine presented its research according to which mood swings may be balanced out with
polyunsaturated fatty acids. With fish oil as the best source in this situation. Based on the findings that the respective blood level of omega-3 fatty acids has an impact on depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, attention deficit, and other psychosomatic issues.
This has been scientifically validated by, inter alia, British researchers at the University of Oxford and the London Metropolitan University, as well as the Swallownest Court Hospital in Sheffield, UK.
Additionally, what we can learn from, inter alia, research at the National Autonomous University of Mexico is that
- Mood modulators
i.e. natural chemicals in certain foods such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cocoa and teas, etc. can elevate mood. Validated by the American Chemical Society.
Another mood improving natural substance is
- Vitamin D
evidence-based on findings of Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland and scientifically validated at Washington University School of Medicine.
Preferably, vitamin D should be ‘tapped’ from sunshine insofar, as sunshine falling on your skin (any part of your body) produces vitamin D readily for use by your body.
Similar the effect of the trace mineral
on the mind and emotions, according to the findings of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Research Service.
