Vegan food can be healthier
People who switch to a vegan diet often become healthier at first, get more energy after a few weeks, gain a better weight and also look healthier. These changes are often caused by cutting unhealthy elements from the diet and adding natural foods.
Long-term vegan diet
Following a purely vegan diet for a long time leads to shortages of certain nutrients. Supplementation with these nutrients can make up for the deficiencies, but often a few minerals, vitamins or other nutrients are missing. The most well-known supplement for vegans is vitamin B12. There are more substances that play an important role, read on for more information
Nutrient deficiencies cause depression
Many clients who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet sign up for trip therapy. Depression, anxiety and low energy levels are the most common complaints in this group. Psychedelic therapy obviously works well against the psychological aspect of depression and anxiety, but it does not solve the underlying physical deficiency of nutrients. The best way to find a lasting solution is of course to tackle the physical (nutrition) and the psychological side (psychedelic session) at the same time.
Consider the following substances
The most common deficiencies in vegans are due to vitamins and minerals. In an increasing number of cases, a low protein intake (and certain amino acids) is a factor of poorer health.
