Dr. Roger Walsh, professor at Irvine’s College of Medicine at the University of California, has recently published a paper in which he suggests that adopting healthy lifestyle changes may help promote good mental health.
The areas in which he believes therapeutic lifestyle changes, or TLC, should occur include diet, exercise, relationships, stress, relaxation time, spirituality and how well an individual treats others.
Walsh said this type of treatment that involves positive changes as a therapy for illness should be favored in a society where chemical solutions like alcohol, tobacco and drugs are readily available and advertised.
“In the 21st century, therapeutic lifestyles may need to be a central focus of mental, medical and public health,” Walsh said.
A nutritious, balanced diet may promote better learning abilities, healthy cognitive function and ease symptoms of mental disorders like schizophrenia.
Results of the study suggest that making positive life changes, such as integrating nutritional supplements – like those offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals – into a diet, may help keep mental illness at bay.
CalMax by Dr. Newton’s Naturals contains calcium that is essential for bone health, as well as magnesium and the antioxidant vitamin C to promote overall health. The simple act of taking a step toward bettering your physical health may also be good for your mind.
