Plant-Based Diets for Improved Mood and Productivity Updated on October 20, 2019 By William Clement 49 Comments By William Clement 49 Comments Miriam Feintuch September 18, 2015 Could you please make more vidoes on mental illness and mental health? I am studying to become a mental health counselor and I find your videos extremely helpful and useful. Thanks for all the effort you put into educating the masses on the benefits of a vegan diet 🙂 Reply Fredinotmercurybut September 18, 2015 The video I wished for. THANK you, Dr Gerger for putting this treasure together. Reply SandyzSerious September 18, 2015 Excellent. Reply Michael Janavel September 18, 2015 But…but… but, humans are omnivores. We have canine teeth. The cavemenz ate all meat all the time. Vegetarians and vegans are always sick… And a host of others excuses to keep eating meat. Reply Clemens Kohlbacher September 18, 2015 What about Vitamin K2 in a vegan diet? Reply Mark and Marjorie's VLOG September 18, 2015 Great video! Reply tuabuelito September 18, 2015 waiting for the next video The Downsides of Plant-Based Diets Reply shrizza September 18, 2015 Hm, really not sure about this one. I don't think I've ever had issues with depression, but since going vegan I do generally feel angrier, and my tolerance for all sorts of bullshit has gone way down. Reply Han Boetes September 18, 2015 Vegan diets sound to good to be true? It's just a matter of perspective; you can also say: Omnivorous diets are too bad to comprehend. Reply balderdashery G September 18, 2015 Eating plant based made a huge difference to my sense of well being. I was depressed for years and now it's gone. Not to mention all the other health benefits. Now if I could just sleep I would be really happy:P Reply Gabriella Ryan September 18, 2015 Really happy with the videos you're knocking out! They always make my day Reply papaGhurka September 18, 2015 Gee, 84% left vegetarianism/veganism. I wonder why … Reply Tammie T September 18, 2015 I'm sharing this with a major employer in my area! Fascinating. Reply Sebastian Lundh September 18, 2015 This could explain why my mental health crashed after a two year period of eating sunflower seeds for breakfast. Reply Steve September 18, 2015 You vegan quacks ! Reply Andy M September 18, 2015 I had depression and was obese. I went vegan and feel way way better. Reply Lorenz Krüger September 18, 2015 That thumbnail <3 Reply White Kita September 18, 2015 Even if you don't love animals and you don't feel their suffering….Still, ….nothing is better then a whole food plant based diet for the environment, your health, sex-drive and sex performance (if you are a guy) and longevity in general…..and the most energizing, funest, yummiest vegan diet for me that also makes me the happiest is the >> High carb Low fat vegan diet… Reply Loaded Mango September 18, 2015 so true. depression and pms gone since I went plant based 15 months ago. Reply liwymi September 18, 2015 This is great to hear. I've been a lifelong vegetarian and I've now been vegan for about 3 years. Really started focusing on more whole foods, raw foods, and a high carbohydrate low fat macronutrient ratio about a year ago. I then got depression towards the start of the year. With all the talk of the importance of omega 3 and fats in general for mental health I did start to wonder whether my dietary choices were not the best for me. I think after dropping out of uni and giving myself some time to rest and recover I'm feeling a little better… still not myself though, but perhaps it's just a bit of a quarter-life crisis. Reply Jacob Hafer September 19, 2015 Plants help with my schizophrenia . Reply Chocolate Vegan September 19, 2015 Great facts, I so agree!! Reply A Harris September 19, 2015 I saw you in Plant Pure Nation! Great documentary and it was great to see you in it. Reply at me September 19, 2015 I think it'd be really interesting to see the effects of a proper plant based diet and addiction. I was bulimic for years until I found the high carb vegan life and now I don't even get urges. Everyone is sick of me saying a "Vegan diet cures all" but it truly changed and saved my life. (Bulimia is an addictive behaviour imo, but I'd be curious to see if it worked with drugs/alcohol for example) Reply bogipepper September 19, 2015 My trusted source has become a emperor with no clothes.hiding behind studies constructed for othere reasons, they make your conclusions moot . Your studies are not that smart Reply Tom The Fish September 20, 2015 Will vegan junk food, but not eating animal products still improve mood? Reply WisdomTooth September 20, 2015 Common sense. Reply Christine Hickey September 20, 2015 does anyone know how we can print off the studies. i can find only the abstract. RE: Geico Study Reply Amanda Austin September 21, 2015 maybe this is why so many of the omnivores i know are so grouchy. 😉 Reply Yolo Swaggins September 21, 2015 PUT IT TO THE TEST Reply AnoushBotanical September 21, 2015 So very obvious to those of us eating Plant Based… yet less acceptable to most. ~ Will be sharing on fb. Reply Beauty Consciousness September 23, 2015 Going vegan improved my emotional and mental body and awakened my spirituality. Check out my video on it Reply III September 26, 2015 but, carbs turn into glucose, so high carb is improving their depression, because their brain is craving the reward system of glucose sugar, and their body is burning carb for energy, which isnt ideal. Burning fat is ideal for energy and mind power. Where is the study of high fat, mid protein, low carb effect on mood? A vegan ketogenic intake seems ideal. Reply nanasshi07 October 2, 2015 doctor, are you a vegan? Reply Janice Harris October 18, 2015 Micheal Janavel Reply Janice Harris October 18, 2015 I have been vegan for 8 years. I have never had more energy and I am never sick.I missed one day of work in 8 years. Reply Iluv Merengue February 24, 2016 I suffered from depression for more than half my life. Prior to changing my diet to vegetarian (and then vegan) just little over 2 mo. ago I still struggled with it on an on/off fashion, I more or less managed it with supplements, avoiding too much sugar and trying to get enough sleep, but once I made the change I haven't been depressed one single day, nor had any random anxiety feelings that would assault me "out of the blue". When I think about all I suffered for so long it really makes me mad that I never heard that eating an exclusively plant-based diet could make me free. Reply Luke Jackson June 18, 2016 DR. GREGER YOU ARE ONE OF THE BEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, I LOVE YOU Reply Katherine T January 10, 2017 In one year vegan, I stopped my medication for ADHD ❤️ and I fell awesome!! Thank Michael, you're always amazing! Reply D Master May 25, 2017 what a pile of crap. if the low carb diet had just as many fruit and vegetables they would have got just as good results Reply Anders July 6, 2017 Its mindbogglingly. Goes against everything we have been taught all life. Reply Lyudmil Tsvetanov August 6, 2017 Recent study of Bristol university found that vegetarians have more depression than meat eaters Reply Taco Bell March 5, 2018 I have read where scientists do not "fully understand" the connection between vegetarianism and improved mood. The connection is surely an obvious one. The brain is an organ. Blood travels around the brain. Meat is packed with toxins which are carried in the bloodstream to the brain, disrupting normal brain function. A no-brainer….if you will. Reply Martin Yeats September 23, 2018 Bring forward 1 person that has cured depression with any form of diet. Just 1. Not a study, not a doctor, not a book, just 1 person. Reply Karrah October 12, 2018 Thank you so much doctor. Just purchased your cookbook for my boyfriend and I and your book for my mommy 💯 Reply Curtis Henschen December 3, 2018 In the book, Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry and Heal Your Brain, Dr. William J. Walsh refers to five biotypes of depression. Each has a specific nutritional need. Are you aware of this research? If so could you do a video regarding the five biotypes and each ones specific nutritional needs? Reply Francis Mausley January 30, 2019 You got to go with the Science… "Medical science is only in its infancy, yet it has shown that our natural food is that which grows out of the ground." ~‘Abdu’l-Bahá in Bahá'u'lláh and the New Era, Baha'i Faith Reply Olivia Farrington March 11, 2019 Can you make a video on bipolar disorder? Reply Brandon Miller May 3, 2019 This is great news for the original diet prescribed in Genesis 1! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
