Nutritional Care Greatly Helps in Dealing with Depression


Jillian Levy, CHHC comprehensively explains why consumption of iodine is vital for our health and the negative consequences of ignoring it in our dietary intake:

“Iodine is present throughout the body in just about every organ and tissue, needed by almost every bodily system to keep us alive and energised. For this reason, iodine deficiency poses many risks — an alarming thought considering that some sources suggest around 50 percent or more of the adult population in Western developed nations are at least somewhat iodine-deficient.”

These five traits broadly capture most of the ways in which people differ from one another, and they are related to a wide range of important life outcomes.”
