My Lifestyle Stack for Lifting Out of a Deep Funk

I just got a question about how I battled depression* when I was a teen, “Wondered what you found most effective in lifting you out of that?”

There are many habits added together that helped mold by body and my mind into the person I am today*: 
Boosting nutrition tremendously, especially brain supporting and hormone supporting nutrition*
Eating an allergen free diet*
Eating plenty of high quality fats (instead of low quality carbs)*
Constant focus on nourishing gut flora (digestive system = second brain)*
Regularly implementing strategies to remove viral load, mold, heavy metals and other toxins from my body*
Living passionately in a way that feels free and mission driven*
Making an impact on people that makes a real difference in their lives
Balancing hormones naturally*
Weight training, yoga and chiropractic*
Lots of tonic herbs for adrenal and brain support*
Being drug, alcohol and sugar free
Reducing exposure to plastics, synthetic fibers and air pollutants*
Being grounded (Earthing), getting lots of sun and lots of cold showers*
Being willing to both ‘reprogram my thinking’ (assertively embracing desire) but also ‘being with thoughts and letting them go’ (being Zen about desire)
Speaking to myself and others with words that are somehow both radically honest AND positively self esteem and success oriented.
Each one of these habits doesn’t do that much by itself for me. But combined has been key for changing the way my mind works.*
*I did not have a case of clinical depression, though I felt depressed. If you have been diagnosed with a type of clinical depression, please note that this is not medical or psychiatric advice, but my own experience. I do believe that these lifestyle habits are worth trying while working closely with a qualified holistic doctor. Results may vary from individual to individual, based on health conditions, diet, weight, physical exercise and lifestyle habits. These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA, and are for informational and educational use only.
