- Blue light
The importance of the blue light in the fight against depression cannot be emphasized enough. It is probably one of the most important tools that one will need in their journey to conquer depression. It will create a happy environment and make low moods a lot lighter during the winter and rainy days.
Knowing what triggers one’s depression is a major step in their fight against depression. How well they know the triggers may be a determinant on whether they will be successful in controlling the depression. Checking their diet is a good way to start. Avoiding certain foods that cause the sensitivity can help reduce the symptoms. It is even possible to witness a reduction in thyroid antibodies. Getting rid of certain foods from one’s diet is enough to normalize thyroid antibodies.
However, it is important to note that avoiding certain foods does not work in everybody and others may need to take further steps to get rid of Hashimoto’s. There may be other triggers involved such as stress, toxins and infections.
Implementing a diet change can go a long way in normalizing thyroid function in people with subclinical hypothyroidism. A study done in Italy showed that being gluten-free for a whole year can normalize Hashimoto’s and thyroid antibodies. One will notice that going gluten and dairy free for a few days is enough to get rid of symptoms such as bloating, stomach pain and acid reflux.
There are certain foods that have been found to be sensitivities in most cases. Some of these foods are gluten, soy, dairy, corn and other grains. It is normal for a person to have only one or two sensitivities. It is advisable to look further for another trigger if more than two sensitivities are witnessed. Infections and stress are good examples of alternative triggers that one should probably look out for.
