We are learning through research that the food we eat impacts how we feel emotionally.There are some individuals who seek complementary treatments such as food-mood interventions in addition to allopathic medications to boost their chances of improving mood and anxiety. Your provider can talk to you about a healthy diet and various nutritional supplements that could benefit your mood and overall health.
