I have recently made a very startling discovery that has helped me to stop spiraling into bouts of depression. In this article, I write about this discovery which I hope will help other people to lead much happier lives, free from anxiety and stress.
I am the type of person who can easily let things get on top of me. If I am rushed about here there and everywhere by my family or friends, I am often left feeling very drained and exhausted. I am sure this is the same for many people but the way it affects me over the next twenty-four hours is somewhat different. I seem to lose all of my energy and this then can easily lead me into thinking in a very negative way, often ending with me becoming quite depressed.
For whatever reason, this depression can stay and in a way haunt my life for quite a few days. I begin to worry about the future, start to think that I am a failure, start to become paranoid about what other people think of me, and basically become scared to leave my own house.
I have spoken to my family and especially my parents about this issue. They have advised me to seek help from a doctor. I must say that even though this would be good advice for most people, I feel that I am the kind of person who could become easily hooked and dependent on any tablets that would be described. I certainly do not want an addiction to add to my problems.
Possible solution to my depression
A few weeks ago I was watching a television program that has since had a massive impact on my life. It was an army type program, and it talked about how one particular group of soldiers had all seemingly become ill and could not even complete the most routine of tasks.
A doctor or some other type of medical personnel was called to their camp to investigate what was wrong. The initial belief was that it was likely to be some form of food poisoning.
The doctor actually stated that the men had salt deprivation and called for a large amount of salt tablets to be bought to the camp.
I thought about this and wondered if this could be the cause of my own issues.
The next time I felt I was becoming down or when I was overtired, I ate food products that contained a lot of salt, and I am very happy to report that I quickly regained my energy and confidence levels. Such a simple solution to what was once such a huge problem for me.
If you are also the kind of person who is often depressed, try eating a bit more salt, it might just change your life.
