In a recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, fatty and sugary foods lift our moods. According to Dr. Bonnie Eaker Weil, a NY City based Psychotherapist, ”Anyone that has an addiction issue has an unstable blood sugar level. Certain foods, especially sugars aggravate the addiction and encourages mood swings. I see many patients who had addictions and they were treated by the changing of their diet, supplements and medication. Once these areas were focused and treated by an MD, the patient later needed less psychotherapy. I cure some patients with the hand of an MD, whom treats the body and brain chemicals, then we add in my Psychotherapy. When I treat marital issues I always look at what they are eating. Partners whom are rude in tone, abrupt, selfish, moody can be researched back to having a mismanaged diet. People tend to self medicate with food, especially sugar as it calms the body down initially but in the end it stresses the body.”
