Positive attitude through diet. I have read scientific research that has shown possible correlations between vitamin C intake and studies have shown a fairly strong link to being able to lower poor moods through the intake of vitamin C. I have done studies on myself to see how vitamin C in doses of 1 to 2 thousand milligrams per day helped and I found it to work. Most doctor’s recommend 1000 miligrams but I have used much higher dose and it seems to help. Dr. Wiel has suggested taking up to 5,000 when you are feeling a cold coming on.

I take half in the morning and half in the afternoon. Simple, inexpensive and effective and with low (if any) health risks.

My wife and I are HUGE belivers in Dr. Weil and his integrative medicine program. It's increased our health enormously, and we were already coming from a pretty helpful place.

Agree with this post, TB. As someone whose eating habits vacillate from a balanced trip around the pyramid to coffee and frozen pizza at 2 in the morning, my moods can swing wildly depending on what I eat. Even if I'm guilty of being overly present to my brain fuel, some vitamin supplements could help someone like me a lot on days when fresh food is far away.

Nice blog. Keep it up.

muff and jv - I was going to post more on diet. Wiel has some sound information he just doesnt look the part. I have a longer diet one that I will post soon.

I do read the blood type diet, pericone, arnolds encyclopedia of bodybuilding, the atkins diet, low glycemic diets, and others and combind them together to find the best of the best that agree with the most diets.

Glad you like it JV and muff.

I am trying to get as much positive infomation content here as possible.

Some future ideas I have planned are the 12 days of positive emotion to celebrate the 12 days of christmas.

I have an interview with a Great person from the positive news network.

A great story of a man that I admire that work near me that should be inspiring.

Thank your for reading and partisipating. I was told that I could never get 1,000 hits without posting pictures. Thank you for helping me prove that people care more than just a fancy blog or various pictures.

Just be careful that you have good kidney function.

Too much Vitamin C can be a little hard on the kidneys!

"Just be careful that you have good kidney function."

More important is to stick to ester C which is healthier and to make sure you are drinking enough water at least 8 glasses and you can further ofset kidney risks with reducing alchohol consumption.

I had a supervisor who swore by vitamin C when she was coming down with something. She really believed in it. I'm not much of a pill taker so it's never worked well with me...just because i find swallowing pills distasteful.
