Quoted from Stefina

It's not my idea. I learned of this tool from a book by teacher Julia Cameron.  


That reminds me of a book we used in college, Peter Elbow's Writing Without Teachers.  Freewriting he called it, writing without stopping even if it's the same thing over and over.  (Nobody shredded theirs, it was a creative writing course.   )

I will keep this as short as possible, but for a long time, Anxiety and a bit of Depression from that have been a lifelong struggle. Now to give you an idea of how much i have tried to help myself in this department, here is the run down.

1: I Swim 4 Times a Week
2: I meditate for an hour every day using Holosync
3: I eat mostly Organic
4: I don't drink Alcohol
5: I don't smoke
6: I don't drink coffee or tea
7: I avoid sugar ( and everything on my avoids list for Type A )

etc....

Now i have heard recently that Soy has high levels of Tryptophan thus in turn producing Serotonin to enhance mood and help alleviate anxiety and depression, but there appears to be a carbohydrate or food link that if you do not have this or something in particular then Serotonin will not be produced from the protein in Soy!?..

So can someone tell me what i would need to do or foods i would need to eat as per my blood type combined with Soy to ensure that the levels of Serotonin i require are actually released!?!?!?.... I am very confused by this.

And then i find this article which is essentially stating the complete opposite. Now i am even MORE confused!!

Thank You.


Personally, I think the best bets for mood enhancement is omega 3 fats. There is so much contradictory information about soy that I would avoid soy supps and consume only modest amounts of soy foods.

I don't know about serotonin secretion, but I never felt any benefits from soy at all, but rather the contrary.
