The Surprising Relationship Between Depression and Your Stomach
Click here for audio
A lot of people who are suffering from depression come to our clinic.
“Why are you in a manipulative clinic even though you are depressed?”
“Depression is a mental illness, so it can only be cured by a psychiatrist or psychosomatic medicine, right?”
you will wonder.
Unfortunately, psychiatrists and psychosomatic medicine cannot cure depression fundamentally.
Prescription antidepressants can help alleviate the distressing symptoms you are experiencing.
“Is that fine?”
You may think that, but it is not cured, so you will have to keep taking medicine.
Some antidepressants are strong.
If you continue to take the medicine, the sympathetic nervous system will be overwhelmed and the medicine will not work, and other symptoms will begin to appear.
Then, stronger medicines will be issued, and the types of medicines will increase.
Then the body becomes more and more difficult to heal.
So what should we do?
While I was treating many depressed patients, I noticed something.
The belly of the person who comes to the hospital with depression is very bloated.
And as the treatment progresses, the bloating of the stomach loosens, and the symptoms of depression also become lighter.
“But what does your stomach have to do with depression, a mental illness?”
Have you ever heard that the gut is the second brain?
Some protozoa don’t have a brain, but they think and move in their gut.
It is easy to imagine that if the second brain is tired and tense, the first brain will also be affected.
And Japan has a long history of
・Belly sits down
・My stomach boils over
・I can’t put it down
There is a proverb that connects the stomach and feelings.
The stomach and the heart are so connected.
Above all, it is overwhelmingly easier to loosen the gut than to control the feelings in the brain.
So how do we loosen our gut, our second brain?
First of all, watch your food.
As a food that is easy to get tired of the intestines
・ Convenience store bento
I think you can understand convenience store bento, but isn’t wheat products surprising?
People who eat wheat products on a daily basis have very bloated stomachs.
In my opinion, wheat is still more or less an allergen for us Japanese.
I’m not saying you should cut out wheat, but try not eating it every day or every morning and every other day.
In addition to the above, prepare the spine where the intestinal autonomic nerves are coming out, and try to spend your time in a better posture.
Place the back of your hand on your waist.
Tighten the muscles on both sides of the spine just above the back of the hand and arch the spine. there is).
“Is it okay if I don’t puff out my chest?”
Yes, please don’t push yourself.
Pushing your chest out can make things worse.
