Depression is an all too prevalent condition characterized by persistent low mood and lack of positive affect. There are many types of depression, and the causes are wide and varied. It may be triggered by seasonal change, stress, trauma, chemical imbalances, thyroid disorders, digestive problems, food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, viruses, or allergies. Foods greatly influence the brain’s behavior, and poor diet, especially snacking on junk foods, is a common contributing factor.
