  1. @Nak Khid Misuse of the word I guess, I'm not a native English speaker. Sorry about that
  2. @Nak Khid The Self IS the illusion here. The harm is basically an illusion on top of an illusion.
  3. @studentofthegame Very good point! Holistic health leaks into every aspect of life.
  4. @LfcCharlie4 Oh yeah good point on the D3. I would go as far as to say it's needed for every single type of diet out there. Unless of course the person gets a lot of sunlight. But living in the western world, that's pretty rare
  5. Go to cronometer.com . Enter the foods you eat in a day and see which nutrients you're lacking. If you can't be bothered to do that (which is understandable), just follow these basic rules. - Include Dark leafy greens, nuts/seeds (Chia seeds and Flax are really important because of the omega 3's), Legumes, Grains (Stay away from wheat but eat Brown Rice,Oats etc.) and lots of fruits. Make sure to include these all every single day, otherwise deficiencies are very easy to have. - Take a B12 supplement or eat B12 fortified foods. A plant based diet if done correctly is just as nutritious as any other diet, maybe even more nutritious. However it's a lot harder to keep balanced in my experience. But if you're serious about your health it can be very easy. I would also like to suggest a great youtube channel to follow for this. It's called [Simnett Nutrition] and he has a lot of great recipes that are actually pretty damn tasty. And on top of that he actually explains how to get all the necessary nutrients in a vegan diet. He was really helpful for me when I began eating plant based a few months ago. Best of luck !
  6. @Preety_India You're welcome! Let me know if it helped.
  7. Magnesium. It's the mineral that is responsible for controlling anxiety and making us sleepy. Magnesium sources include: - Dark Leafy Vegetables (Definitely not the only reason to eat a TON of those) - Nuts and Seeds - Dark Chocolate (Preferably go for 80% cacao or more, so it doesn't have a lot of sugar) - Legumes (Lentils,Beans,Chickpeas) Also consider taking a magnesium supplement. It helps, but of course it is not necessary. Try eating more of these foods, and I'm sure it will help you a lot, not only with sleep but with your general health. Also like @Preety_India said, chamomile tea is really good too.
  8. @TrynaBeTurquoise Yeah he is one of the most conscious doctors I have ever seen. I will definitely check it out, thanks for the suggestion!
  9. Don't know if anyone has posted this before, but it's really worth the listen.
  10. It's definitely 'good' that you love them, but don't put them on a pedestal. Don't view them as "superior" to you. I don't know if that is what you're doing, just making sure :P.
  11. @Nickyy Hmm, that's true. I didn't think about that. What about working on a business? While I am doing it my anxiety seems uncontrollable...Should I just watch it?
  12. @DrewNows Thanks for the tips, but I already drink green smoothies and eat loads of fruit/veggies in general. My real issue is, even if my gastritis completely heals, I will still be afraid of it coming back whenever I plan my career path...Which will most likely cause it to come back (psychosomatic again). That's the fear I want to "beat".
  13. @Anna1 Yeah you're probably right. I will give it a go. Thanks again for the help!
