Then take a pill and in about 30 minutes bam happy as can be. This is because we are slaves to are hormones.
The same result can be achieved with biofeedback techniques, plus good nutrition/nutritional supplements (since the body/brain needs certain amino acids and micronutrients to function properly). Then you will not be a "slave to your hormones" or need a psychiatric drug to alter your brain chemistry - which is best avoided, if at all possible, due to their adverse long term physical effects. The first step in becoming a slave is to believe that you can be one.
Oh yes I agree I was merely just giving an example on how you can be in one state of mind and take a pill that's known to have a certain reaction in the body and then that reaction happens in your perspective completely changes very rapidly.
However it is by no means good for you LOL at least not that scenario and I completely agree with you on diet I have been in the nutrition field for about 10 years now and I swear by a balanced diet LOL
