Vegan diet causes depression?
Vegan food can be healthier
People who switch to a vegan diet often get healthier at first, get more energy after a few weeks, gain better weight and start looking healthier. These changes are often caused by removing unhealthy elements from the diet and adding natural foods.
Long term vegan eating
If a vegan diet is followed purely for a prolonged period of time, shortages of certain nutrients will occur. Supplementation with these nutrients can supplement the deficiencies, but often some minerals, vitamins or other nutrients are missing. The best known supplement for vegans is vitamin B12. There are more substances that play an important role, read on for more information.
Nutrient deficiencies cause depression
In trip therapy, many clients present themselves on a vegetarian or vegan diet. Depression, anxiety complaints and low energy levels are the most common complaints in this group. Psychedelic therapy obviously works well against the psychological aspect of depression and anxiety, but it does not solve the underlying physical deficiency of nutrients. The best way to find a lasting solution is, of course, to tackle the physical (nutrition) as well as the psychological side (psychedelic session) at the same time.
Consider the following substances
The most common deficiencies occur in vegans due to vitamins and minerals. In an increasing number of cases, low protein intake (and certain amino acids) is a factor in poorer health.
