? Simply put, when coldness increases in the brain, it increases the chance of depression and other diseases.
? Depression usually occurs due to emotional reasons but it is a wrong diet and cold natured foods that make it worse.
? So the 2 main causal factors for depression are:
2?Physical (food and climate).
?China and USA are good examples for the first causal factor. According to statistics, both of these countries have the highest rate of depression. Having no beliefs and spiritual relations through a religion is a cause of depression and suicide. Atheism and not following any religion is common in these countries.
?The interesting thing in the official statistics is that Islamic countries are at the bottom of the list showing that they have the least suicide and depression in the world.
? Good examples for the second reason are South Korea and Japan as they both have a high rate of suicide.
? Cold and humid weather along with having Fish and rice as part of their staple diet are 2 common factors that make the brain cold. A cold brain can lead to depression and suicide. Islamic scholars believe that when the brain becomes cold, decision making and planning with surety become difficult and this coldness can spread into all organs of the body.
? In fact, people with a cold temperament have more potential to become depressed.
??Another common reason for depression and making the body cold is taking chemical medicines. For example, women who give birth through a caesarean section have much more potential to become depressed than those who have a natural delivery. This is mostly due to the use of chemical injections and strong anaesthetics.
❌ What to avoid:
Generally cold natured foods should be limited. Sour foods such as orange, tamarind, kiwi, lemon are mostly cold in nature. Dairy products, rice, watermelon, cold water and fast foods are also cold natured.
? If you want to consume some of the cold natured foods, you can add the Muslih or the moderator to moderate their coldness. For example, black seed or cumin with rice, date or honey with milk, ajwain or mint with yogurt, salt with cucumber, honey with lemon juice, etc.
? What to eat?
