Nutritional Psychiatry. Do You Know It Exists? (video)

 

Nutritional psychiatry involves looking at the interconnection between what we eat and how our brain functions.

It is new, it is revolutionary, and yet it is also common sense.

This video rant is reposted from my Facebook page. Clearly hit a lot of pain points for people. I want to broaden the discussion about mental health.

Nutritional Psychiatry....

  • It’s about food intake
  • It’s about digestion
  • It’s about nutrient absorption
  • It’s about the influence of agricultural chemicals on the nervous system
  • It’s about how food can stimulate and reduce inflammation in the gut and how those messages can be transferred to the brain
  • It’s about how certain nutrient deficiencies can slow or speed up processes in the body
  • It’s about how blood sugar influences mental function
  • It’s about how sleep influences hormones and mood
  • It’s about gut bacteria and intestinal integrity
  • It’s about exploring the neurological effects of allergies

Nutritional psychiatry has proven to be effective and it has zero negative side effects.

Nutritional psychiatry is something you can do when you feel powerless to help the people you love.

Nutritional psychiatry is the way forward; it’s the missing piece in our discussion about mental illness and suicide prevention.

Nutritional psychiatry is about improving the body’s health so it can function better.

If your child is struggling you need tools NOW. A straight forward plan is laid out in my book Raising Resilience. It involves a 2-pronged approach to improving the health of the body so the brain and mind work better. It walks you through the exact system I use with my private clients – families who are working through ADHD, anxiety, autism, aggression, rage, and more.

It’s important you know that there are tools at your disposal.

It gives busy parents 3 things to focus on. Three. We are busy, we are exhausted, we are concerned. We need to stay focussed and systematic.
