Don’t Let Depression Keep You From Exercising

Summary: Researchers say exercise is crucial to the overall health of those with depression. The study reveals people with higher levels of fitness during middle age were significantly less likely to die from cardiovascular disease, even if they were diagnosed with depression.

Old news, I know. And if you search for Depression on this Blog you will find more than a dozen Posts, going back years, that inform and (hopefully) persuade you to do more exercise (it’s all about the happy chemicals:-)

Unfortunately, the things that cause people to be depressed can sometimes be the very things that keep them from exercising. Not to worry: do tai chi!

Why Mainstream Medicine is Clueless

“The next step in this process is to come up with a drug that can target this receptor,”

It is because that is how they think!

That quote came from here…

The answer is actually right there in the bold type, but they though they have eyes, they can not see it.

This is just grape!

Researchers here are talking about the potential for treating depression with two components of grapes. It is important that you do not pay any attention to their message: ‘We’ll concoct a formula and treat depression, and we will all get rich selling the product we put together.’

That is nonsense, not common sense. The real news isn’t news: eat grapes and consume grape products because the result is health!

Aah, don’t get me started.

(I had grape ‘butter’, on top of nut butter, on top of sourdough toast, with my breakfast. What did you have?)

If you can not, will not, and do not eat the recommended number of servings of fruits and vegetables (7-10), then get whole-food supplements that are proven to provide those same nutrients – if you want to be healthy.

More On The Mediterranean Diet, This Time As It Relates to Mood

What’s not to like. Here is a Blog Post by one of my favorite Greek writers on a Study that shows just one more reason to eat like the Greeks. I recommend her Blog whole-heartedly if you want to learn how to cook like the Greeks (for the purposes of health – Note: she adheres precisely to the recommendations of the BlueZone folks; I don’t think that that is an accident).

94. Improves your mood. (That is an understatement; it’s all about the happy chemicals – our big secret:-)

I will be Posting a benefit every day – well, most days – from a list put together by Dr. Dave Phillips, M.D. He is an M.D. from Atlanta, GA who specializes in Sports Medicine. As a former All-American swimmer he knows a few things about exercise. He is also on the JuicePlus+ Health Advisory Board. He is also all over YouTube doing videos on JuicePlus+, exercise, and other health-related topics.
