For many, the holidays are anything but happy.
Some are haunted by broken relationships, lost loved ones, or the thought of spending time with relatives who they might not have seen eye to eye with in the past.
Situations like these can leave us in a tailspin and for a large majority of people, the tailspin leads to a downward spiral of depression.
A large majority of the population is depressed, and an even larger majority are on anti- depressive medications. When did this happen, how did it happen?
If you were to talk to most people, they’re unsatisfied with life. Their career, relationship, or finances aren’t where they should be. It is constantly on the forefront of their minds. The focus on what’s not working becomes an obsession.
The brain becomes “frazzled” due to the stress of trying to make sense of life’s shortcomings.
A stressed out brain along with less than desirable eating habits feeds the fire of false moods and diverts us away from true emotions.
Can our brains “teeter” on depression, fatigue, and darkness because we’re deficient in nutrients and amino acids?
Can cleaning up the diet and providing the right amino acids to feed the neurotransmitters in the brain lift the dark clouds?
Your mind is about to be “blown” as you learn how to take charge of emotions through, ”The Mood Cure” With Julia Ross.

Inside The Episode
In a past life, I was an account manager for a food allergy testing company. My territory was the West Coast, so I was tasked with calling all our clients in California.
Julia just happened to be one of them.
I had originally heard Julia on Sean Croxton’s now defunct show called Underground Wellness. During our initial conversation, I introduced myself as the account manager and took care of the business details.
Once that was over I said, ”Are you the person I heard on Sean’s show?”
She replied, ”Yes”.
We talked almost an hour after that about food and mood.
I told her I had a podcast and she agreed to be a guest. That was 3 years ago!
Why so long?
I attempted to schedule the interview on two separate occasions only to have internet and email issues.
I tried to schedule a third interview and was put on hold as Julia wrote her new book.
I could’ve gone bananas but I’m a believer in things happening in due time and right on time!
By the way check out Julia’s new book called,”The Craving Cure”. I’ll have her back on to discuss it in 2018!
