How does food improve mood?
Approximately 90% of the human body’s total serotonin is located in the digestive tract, where it regulates intestinal movements- significantly influencing your immune system and mental state! Serotonin is a natural mood regulator; it makes you feel emotionally stable, less anxious, more tranquil and even more focused and energetic. It’s our own powerful brain chemical that helps regulates appetite & curbs cravings. It makes you feel satisfied even if your stomach is not full. Naturally made in your body from tryptophan (an essential amino acid), serotonin is primarily found in the digestive tract, blood platelets, and the nervous system. Other good-mood-foods include: green tea, all leafy green vegetables, turkey, turmeric, beetroot, oranges, papaya, saffron, oats. Pep-up your happiness today with these mood-boosting foods!

I have a strong belief that environment plays a crucial role in health and well being, and therefore treatment management must also include advice on exercise and nutrition, ergonomics, stretching, rehabilitation and lifestyle modification.
