No Dietary Cure For Depression

  • Asks ...

    Is there any certain diet that helps people with depression? My husband is having a hard time right now and he has been diagnosed with depression. He is seeing a therapist and is taking medication but I want to do what I can to support him. I have heard that a diet high in processed grains and sugars can lead to depression. Is this true? Is there a particular diet strategy that helps people recover?

    To my knowledge there is not diet that can specifically improve depression.  However, what you eat and how you eat can affect or be affected by your mood.  Here is a link to an article that may be helpful
