Accounting for Anxiety & Depression

August 16, 2013    BY Susan Taylor, PhD

Why are anxiety and depression on the rise? For answers, it’s helpful to look at what we are taking into ourselves that affects our minds. There are three factors or levels:

  • At the physical level, what kind of food do we eat? 
  • At the emotional /psychological level, what impressions and experiences are we feeding our minds and senses? 
  • At the causal level, what kinds of qualities (joy, dullness, stimulation, etc.) do our food and experiences bring us?
