Life Retreat’s Friday Weekly Round Up

depression

Mounting evidence shows that depression and even schizophrenia can sometimes be caused by dietary deficiencies or food allergies. An Italian study revealed that almost all of the 331 depressed people taking part in the test
had extremely low levels of cholesterol in their body.

Evidence shows that very low-fat diets can cause depression. And, insufficient levels of B vitamins, high intakes of sugar and caffeine, and gluten or milk allergies can all cause or aggravate mental illness too. So, keep all these facts in mind especially during dieting periods.

Here’s a wrap up of what you missed this week at Life Retreat. Enjoy your weekend!

Activated charcoal is highly adsorbent (not to be confused with absorbent). This means that other substances bind well to its surface. Because of its powerful adsorption, many people use activated charcoal as a remedy for conditions like heartburn, indigestion, colic, tooth pain and bug bites. Here are ten uses.
