Don’t we all wish to have a healthy and Happy New Year? Fortunately, this is manageable individually - and naturally. By a seemingly mysterious natural substance called 5-HTP supporting the biologic serotonin level in your brain, being responsible for your happiness. Read on to learn how you can manage your happiness this way - again, naturally.....
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
Winnie Blair from Boone, NC, asks:
Especially as I was left by my long-time partner, most of my happiness is gone. My friends recommend anti-depressant or mood-enhancing drugs but I am cautious because of the side effects involved. Any natural alternative, Doc?
As you learned from my Sunday Blogs so far, there is no other way to becoming a happy – & healthy! – centenarian but living in line with nature.
Just as renowned U.S. medical celebrity Dr. Max Gerson put it: “Stay close to nature, and her eternal laws will protect you.” And - quote historic artist Leonardo da Vinci: "Nature never changes her laws." Period.
This implies that – only - naturals will support you on this way, while any synthetic will let you fall into the ditch. There are myriads of essential naturals available for your body and mind in daily life, just let us pick one: 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan).
WHAT IS 5-HTP ALL ABOUT?
5-HTP is a natural precursor (and ‘enhancer’) of serotonin which gives our brain the feeling of well-being and accordingly, is an excellent natural anti-depressant.
Depression is not only the leading cause of disability (with 350 million cases worldwide and affecting 20% Americans of all ages – most of them not being aware of). According to research at, inter alia, the Canadian University of Western Ontario, depression is also linked to anxiety and stress which again, is a major chronic ailment too. Even diabetes can be linked to depression, according to Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
Accordingly, depression is one of the most complex and complicated health issues of our time, as validated scientifically by, inter alia, the Catholic University in Leuven, Belgium.
Since it is in fact impossible to get a clear diagnosis if you are suffering of depression or not, if you simply feel you are not that quite happy you would like to be, focus on 5-HTP, this natural support of your well-being. Instead of synthetic drugs promising same result, but with tremendous side effects you may not want to pay.
Fortunately, an optimistic attitude helps you also with other health issues. Not only does optimism support better heart health, based on research at the University of Illinois. According to latest research at no less but Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, optimism can cut all-cause mortality by almost 30% in women, thus extending life expectancy.
NATURAL 5-HTP SOURCES
Leaves us with the question if, and how you can support personally the 5-HTP level in your brain – again, the natural way. In favor of a happy life and love.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, the amino acid tryptophan used by our body to produce 5-HTP, is found in our daily nutrition with special reference to, inter alia, potatoes, milk, turnips, chicken, collard greens, etc. An excellent source of 5-HTP is also the herb (West African shrub) Griffonia simplicifolia. Available also in your hemisphere and environment – please check the internet.
We hope sincerely that you will find much happiness in 2017 (and beyond...) with the 'secret formula' 5-HTP.
