I was researching specifically how is it that exercise affects the brain & emotional health.
What I found is that the increase in blood flow increases the circulation in the brain which has been shown to affect moods. Studies show that in response to exercise, cerebral blood vessels can grow.
I have also noticed a huge improvement in mood now that I eat no wheat, dairy, or soy oil
. Soy oil makes me cranky the next day. It is in nearly everything processed, all fast food.
I can vouch for exercise being more effective than any 'messmeup'
I was diagnosed as a bi-polar with several other issues. I tried many different meds, [ all the popular ones out there now] and none of them helped , made me worse, gave me new issues, or made me gain 10 lbs a week in water!
I weaned my self of meds
slowly and have over 2 years seen regular exercise completely change my outlook.
Plus it helps to be in healthy relationships all around.
Getting away from cruel people
helped for sure!
telling others to quite their meds cold turkey, some med's can kill you from quitting cold turkey or you could get worse that way. I did it on my own slowly & was fortunate. Two of my long time friends CANNOT go off their med's without going off the deep end. I'm just sharing my experience. I am not a doctor, just someone with years of firsthand knowledge and research who wanted to share.
