“Eva Myers had just given birth to a healthy baby girl, but she wasn’t ecstatic. Instead, she was seized by a panic unlike anything she had ever experienced. Her hormone-levels dropped. She was anxious, shaky and barely able to function.”
I feel for this woman and all women that go through this. I really, really do. What worse time could there be to feel depressed, anxious, etc than right after having a baby?
Postpartum Depression can be devasting until you know this:
Postpartum depression is fixable and even avoidable by balancing out the hormones estrogen and progesterone that are largely responsible for the depression and anxiety in the first place.
Postpartum depression is also due to major nutrient deficiencies created during pregnancy. Both of these factors in the body WILL affect the brain. And of course, we all know the brain is the master control center for our thoughts, feelings, actions, judgments, etc. When we know and understand this mechanism, treating it correctly will become much easier and productive.
Add on top of that the stress new mothers feel and sleep deprivation that every mother goes through, and wow… yes, of course, we are going to have a problem on our hands.
The answer to this quandary, of course, is NOT anti-anxiety drugs and antidepressants, but rather working with a professional in balancing out those hormones and nutrient deficiencies. And hopefully getting help with the baby so that sleep deprivation can be relieved as well.
Please if you know someone going through this right now, please let them know there is HOPE and no, they DO NOT need to suffer through it.
The good news is high-quality bioactive nutrients have been found to help balance out hormones, neurotransmitters, and more than all have a role in affecting our thoughts and moods.
Please share the good news.
