Improving your moods health and lifestyle
Mood disorders come in many forms, for example depression, irritability, apathy, mood swings, aggressive behaviour, anxiety and social isolation. These conditions can be caused by a variety of issues such as emotional stress, fybromyalgia, food allergy or intolerance, acidosis and blood sugar problems. Other important influences are our inherited genetic make-up, environmental factors, relationship difficulties or simply growing older.
A high percentage of depression, emotional and behavioral problems can be cured without medication, and just by paying careful attention to these matters.
The sufferer has to be willing to work at it to help themselves, and only when these potential problems are eliminated, should professional help and medication be sought.
Mood Ocean is an interactive site, helping you to identify important factors that may cause mood and emotional problems.
Once the cause of a particular mood disorder has been identified, there are practical suggestions on the course of action to take to correct the problem, along with information about relative health issues, diet and supplementation.

A Mood Tree graphic simplifies the understanding of how various aspects of health and nutrition influence mood and mental function. Its graphical form makes it far easier to manipulate mood and emotion with nutrition and supplements, whilst taking into account other influential factors.
Our genetic blueprint influences our nutritional needs. Also, behaviour mood and emotion can be manipulated by satisfying genetically determined requirements, as well as what we include or leave out of our diet.
Anyone who has ever suffered from mood problems will know the devastating effect they can have on every aspect of their lives, from their social and personal relationships to their work and career prospects.
It is very difficult to find moody, miserable people attractive, in fact they are often unpopular and isolated.
Bubbly, cheerful moods that are fleeting and unpredictable are not good either. People do not connect well with someone who has mood swings because they can pollute the emotional atmosphere and cause those around them to have feelings of insecurity, anxiety and frustration.
The most important feature we have, which decides how much pleasure we get out of life and how popular we are, is our personality and this is directly linked to mood.
How many people do you know who are aesthetically attractive but when you spend some time with them you realise that it's the only positive feature they have? It's that personality mood thing again!
People fall in love with your personality more than your looks. If your mood goes down it will ruin your personality, because the real you can't shine through.
You can be attractive, have a good job or career, money, a caring partner and family but if your mood is poor you can feel that you have nothing. You can't enjoy life or appreciate the good things that you have.
You may be having difficulties with relationships at work, with a partner or within the family which are causing you to suffer low mood. Ongoing problems such as these can eventually affect your general health and cause you to lose the sparkle in your personality.
To rid yourself of any mood problems, you must first accept that you do have a problem which needs to be addressed, and then be prepared to do something about it.
You should never underestimate how important mood is. Your moods will govern how popular and successful you are in life.
Learn how to change and manipulate your mood.
Allergies, food intolerance, malabsorption, stress, blood sugar problems and many other health issues can significantly disrupt neurotransmitter chemistry, resulting in imbalances of dopamine, serotonin and all their derivatives. Relationship problems of any kind can also have the same effect, so solving these issues is of paramount importance.
When serotonin is in balance
When serotonin is right, it offsets the over stimulating effects of dopamine and noradrenaline. Your head sings, you calm down, you feel well adjusted and cognitive thought is paced and steady. You communicate and listen well to other people.
When dopamine is in balance
When dopamine is right, everything feels right. You are motivated, ambitious, memory and attention span are good, your libido is up, you get pleasure out of things around you, your sense of smell and taste improves, you become more animated and talkative, above all you feel stable.
When noradrenaline is in balance
You will be mentally energised, you will feel constructive, have higher focus and confidence, you will be motivated with interest and have a generally robust persona. When noradrenaline is right you achieve more of what you set out to do.
Assuming that you are in otherwise reasonable health, and with no serious, medical issues, we believe that within the pages of this website are all the tools you will need to bring about major, positive changes to your health, mood and emotions, which can be literally life changing.
