How Does The Food We Eat Affect Our Emotions?

Is it possible that the food we eat can affect our emotional state? From what I have discovered in studying Raphaology and experimenting with the foods I have been eating, the answer is a resounding yes. Just think, people who have depression, or excessive fear or worry, or who feel lonely or feel self pity, they could change how they feel just by eating specific foods that can boost the function of the hormone gland that can cause that emotion.

If you are prone to worry, foods that retain gold light from the sun are the foods you want to eat. This would be food that specifically supports the pituitary gland, which in Raphaology language is the lemon.

For depression, the hormone producing gland that is affected is the pineal gland. Apricots is the food that retains yellow light from the sun and will support the function of the pineal gland. Hopelessness falls into this category, so if you have feelings of hopelessness, try eating more apricots for a period of time and see how you feel.

I have been changing the foods I eat to foods that are more supportive of my endocrine system, and I have noticed a change in how I feel. I seem to be able to take more things in stride, and I am sensing that I have less fear about things–more courage.

With all that I have learned about food and how it affects our emotions, I can’t help but wonder about the diets of people who do criminal acts against others or even harm themselves. I wonder if a better diet could have helped them to not feel the anger or depression that led them to carry out their hurtful actions. I’m sure other factors are involved, but I am convinced that food plays a part in how we feel and possibly how we act out our emotions.

It pays in many ways to pay attention to the food we eat and to take special care of the glands that govern our organs and emotions.
