Food for good moods
Healthy eating: Studies have shown a link between a healthy diet and a
reduced risk of depression.
By JILL STARK
A world-first study will look at the
relationship between eating well
and depression. Participants who
have been diagnosed with
depression will follow a
Mediterranean diet high in fruits,
vegetables, fish and legumes and
low in processed foods, sugar, salt
and saturated fats.
Previous studies have shown a link
between the healthy diet and a
reduced risk of the condition but
this will be the first full-scale clinical
trial to examine whether it can be
used to alleviate symptoms after
diagnosis. If successful, the trial
could mean sufferers will rely less on
psychiatric drugs to manage their
illness. Up to a third of depressed
people are non-responsive to
antidepressants or psychotherapy
and researchers say food may be the
key to helping this group.
''Depression now counts for the
largest burden of disability in the
developed world and, by 2020, it will
account for the second-largest
burden right across the world. We're
really limited in effective treatments,
so finding something that is helpful
for people with depression,
something that is under their own
volition, this is really critically
important,'' said the lead researcher,
Felice Jacka, from the Deakin
University school of medicine.
To be eligible, participants must
be over 18 and have a diagnosis of
major depression and be non-
responsive to other treatments.
A quarter of the 200 volunteers
have already been recruited and are
being assigned to either a dietary
group, which will receive weekly
nutritional support and counselling,
or a control group. The groups will
be monitored for three months.
The nutritional regime will vary
slightly from the traditional
Mediterranean diet in that it will also
include moderate amounts of red
meat, which has been linked to
reducing risk of mental illness,
particularly in women. ''We want to
emphasise the foods that have been
shown to be particularly important
in mental health. One of those is fish
-- food that's rich in omega 3 fatty
acids and higher in good fats -- such
as salmon. Leafy green vegetables
are very high in folate, which has
also been shown to be important in
mental health, along with legumes
such as lentils and beans, and
wholegrains and nuts,'' Jacka said.
