How Is Cognitive Well Being Related To
Diet And Lifestyle?
The habits that form a part of daily lifestyle, the products used, the food eaten, the cosmetics, the particulate matter ingested start to remain and accumulate within the tissues of the body.
While in microscopic amounts they do not show symptoms, as the amounts start to gather and grow, they affect the constitutions of the essential minerals and factors within the body. For a healthy cognitive balance, certain elements are essential as these are involved in the production of neurotransmitters that carry signals through the network of nerves. When these elements and metal ions are interfered with or absent, or too much in amounts, it can throw your mental health out of balance. It all comes down to diet and lifestyle.
Instead of focusing on antidepressants and medicines that counter the effects temporarily, a change in the food and the components is focused on in functional medicine, balancing the metabolic processes needed for cognitive health.
