The Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Blog: Mood

This morning the internet contained the news of the suicide death of movie director Tony Scott, who made the movie Top Gun and bunches of pictures starring Denzel Washington. Without knowing one personal thing about this man, from outward appearances I think all of us would think “why?”. Unless he was recently diagnosed with a terminal disease, what would cause a person with seemingly every luxury of life to prematurely end it all? Numerous awards, probably tons of money, a luxurious Hollywood lifestyle, etc…why? Once again, without knowing a thing about this particular car, in general, brain chemical imbalances can lead to significant mood disorders, and often , these chemically-based mood disorders can override the environmental issues. For those who have ever suffered from depression, even the good things you have in life have little meaning. Mood disorders will often lead to the “I don’t care” mentality, and this will translate to eating behaviors that often are detrimental. For those suffering from depression, the eating disorder scan involve not eating (anorexia) or overeating. The natural serotonin supplement used in our program is by no means a magic pill of an FDA-approved medication for depression. I encourage anyone that feels depressive symptoms to check with your physician to see if clinical depression is present and then listen to the options for addressing this. Failure to do so will result in a very negative spiral down and could result in a horrific act. Sorry for the bummer entry this morning….I promise a light one tomorrow.
