We are 100% sure that Euptaptics Tapping is the way to reduce stress and eliminate the root cause of a problem. Every problem we encounter has its structure found within the mind – that is true.
However, we cannot deny the fact that choosing a healthy diet can improve our mood, help relieve tension and stabilize blood glucose levels. Besides if you are still stuck on comfort eating or stress eating, you can tap your way into choosing the following superfoods for stress and anxiety relief.
Why do we push for a healthy diet if stress can be found within the mind?
The fact that you are living means you need to eat. When stressed our judgment and choices of food is often challenged and we choose to eat foods high in unhealthy fats and sugar. The health risks that accompany this can be very alarming, not only will an individual’s weight increase but, it can lead to serious illnesses connected with oxidative damage and insulin resistance.
Kristin Aschbacher, PhD an Assistant Professor at the University of California, San Francisco at the Department of Psychiatry mentions in one nutrition and diet study:
“Many people think a calorie is a calorie, but this study suggests that two women who eat the same thing could have different metabolic responses based on their level of stress.
There appears to be a stress pathway that works through diet – for example, it could be similar to what we see in animals, where fat cells grow faster in response to junk food when the body is chronically stressed.”
In other words, the body’s metabolism is directly influenced by our response to stress. Meaning we process food better when our minds are calm. This is the reason why Eutaptics works best if it is accompanied by a healthy diet. Or one can use Eutaptics to aim for a healthy diet by changing the mind’s perception about food choices.
Eutaptics Sums up the 10 Best Foods to Eat for Relieving Stress and Anxiety
Been exposed to very stressful situation at work today? Or maybe your kids were unmanageable? Then choose to eat the following or include them in your daily diet:
1. Turkey Breast (Organic)
Turkey is known to be a very good source of amino acid that the body converts into serotonin called tryptophan. Several medical researches have shown an improvement in people with anger management issues, who consume tryptophan. It made them less argumentative and markedly more pleasant.
Other sources of tryptophan amino acid are: free-range organic eggs, nuts and pumpkins seeds.
2. Fermented Foods
The health of your gut is directly related to your mental health, as an unhealthy gut can have a damaging impact on the brain and can lead to issues like anxiety and depression. Good bacteria have a direct impact on the brain chemistry by transmitting mood-regulating signals to the brain via the vagus nerve.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus was found to have a remarkable effect on the brain and lowered the production of stress-induced horomone called corticosterone. When the hormone levels are down, it results in reduced anxiety and depression-related behavior.
Don’t get lost in the biological and medical terms; let’s try to discuss this using lay terms.
Did you know that women who regularly ate yoghurt with probiotics had improved brain function compared to those who do not include consumption of probiotics in their diet? It is most notable that their brain functions have decreased activity in two brain regions that control the processing of emotions and sensations. These regions are:
- The insular cortex whose primary function is linked to emotions including perception, motor control, self-awareness, interpersonal experience and cognitive functions. Moreover, it functions as the regulator of your body’s homeostasis.
- The somasensory cortex whose main function is interpreting a wide variety of bodily sensations.
In short, include yoghurt in your diet, but preferably homemade yoghurt because commercially prepared yoghurt has significantly low levels of good bacteria. Furthermore, the preservatives, sweeteners and flavorings added to commercial yoghurt have a notoriously damaging impact on health.
3. Green Leafy Vegetables
Vegetables that are dark leafy greens are rich in folate, which helps the body in producing beneficial mood-regulating neurotransmitters including serotonin and dopamine. A study conducted in 2012 showed that people who consumed high amounts of folate had a lower tendency to get depressed and other stress-related issues.
Moreover, a research conducted at the University of Otago, headed by Dr. Tamlin Conner of the Department of Psychology, found that eating (fresh) fruits and vegetables helped in calming nerves in young adults.
He also mentioned:
“On days when people ate more fruits and vegetables, they reported feeling calmer, happier, and more energetic than they normally did.”
In consuming two servings of pistachios, a study proved that it lowered vascular constriction during a stressful experience. This means that the load on your heart is reduced because of the dilation of the arteries. A healthy blood circulation is one key to maintaining a healthy body and a powerful mind.
5. Dark Chocolate
Pure dark chocolate can help to significantly boost your mood. Please note though that Eutaptics does not suggest overconsumption of chocolate as it can lead to chocolate addiction. Nonetheless, the reason pure dark chocolate improves the brain function is because of anandamide, a neurotransmitter produced in the brain that can temporarily block emotional pain and feelings of depression.
Since it is temporary, it has a tendency to be overconsumed by some people to escape their problems, which Eutaptics does not agree with. Better to address the problems from the root cause.
Omega-3 fats EPA and DHA found in salmon, anchovies and sardines or in supplement forms are key players in maintaining emotional well-being.
A study in Brain Behavior Immunity showed a significant drop of 20% in anxiety among medical students taking Omega-3 through regular diet. Moreover, there is previous medical research that has proven Omega-3 to work just as well as invasive synthetic antidepressants in preventing signs of depression.
The pigments that give blueberries and blackberries a rich dark color are called anthocyanins. They are antioxidants that help the brain in producing dopamine, a chemical that is critical in memory function, concentration, coordination and mood.
Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD and Health’s contributing editor once reported that “Research has also shown that blueberry eaters experience a boost in natural killer cells, ‘a type of white blood cell that plays a vital role in immunity, critical for countering stress.”
Avocados can provide about 20 health-boosting nutrients and are very rich in folate, Vitamin E and B. Avocado can help you stay slim because it can satiate your stomach and prevent unnecessary snacking after a meal. Several studies have shown that eating avocado can help in regulating blood sugar, and because of this, it can steady your mood even in stressful moments.
A precursor to neurotransmitters like serotonin is Magnesium. Serotonin is well-known for its function in regulating emotions and enhancing well-being. Seaweed and green leafy vegetables like spinach and swiss chard can be excellent sources of magnesium. Medical research suggests that a lack of magnesium in the diet may trigger anxiety, panic attacks and depression.
Well this is not food, but sunshine is a major prerequisite for the body’s stable production of mood-enhancing chemicals and major vitamins. Again, the brain hormone serotonin is associated with enhancing the mood. Research proves that the serotonin levels rise with people who have more exposure to the sun or bright lights. Furthermore, in order for the body to produce Vitamin D, it needs good sunlight. A research on mental health conducted in 2008 with 80 elderly patients proves that those with the lowest levels of vitamin D are over 10 times more prone to be depressed.
