Hello Jasbir,

A mood disorder can be due to both our foul diet and the external stress which makes our mind and body vulnerable to mood swings and frustration. Having the right type of food and attitude in stress management will help us heal this issue effectively.


The first thing in the morning is to start your day with something light in nature. Easy to digest is what your breakfast should be because they are the kind of nutrients that get absorbed easily. Even the early morning ritual should include consumption of two-three glasses of warm water will help in flushing out all the toxins.

The ideal diet would be to depend on fruits and raw vegetable intake for at least one month and refrain from something oil-based.

One inch of ginger boiled in two cups of water with one tablespoon lemon, boil them for 5-10 minutes before hitting the bed, as this helps in soothing nerves and relaxing your mind, which helps in treating mood swings and good sleep.


In any kind of disease, stress comes complementary to it. But with our assurance and positive attitude, we can treat anything.

  • The best thing to start with is breathing mindfully before sleeping with the help of music to stay positive.
  • In a room take a bowl of water and add two-three drops of orange or lavender essential oil. This will help in soothing you and the aroma will relax you and keep you away from any kind of disease.
  • Use a 15-minute relaxation technique before sleep by hearing a piece of soothing music mostly flute or waterfall as the sound helps in resonating with the mind and deep breathing with it helps in relaxing your mind.
  • Take a head massage an hour before sleep, coconut oil is preferable. A positive attitude will help you to deal with everything in life. Go gadget-free before going off to sleep, make your room completely soundproof.

Practice this it will be helpful.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you.

Thank you.
