Depression

Nutritional Psychiatry

If you have a heart attack, your cardiologist is very likely to speak to you (at least briefly) about what you eat. This is a good thing! The food you eat has a significant impact on your future heart disease risk. If you have an episode of depression, its fairly unlikely that your psychiatrist will talk to you about food. But there is a significant movement aiming to change this!

Food and Mood

We’ve known for a long time that what we eat affects our physical health.  But research is just starting to demonstrate the connection between food and mental health as well.  Several studies show that individuals eating a poorer quality diet (more processed food, more sugar, more deep-fried foods, less vegetables) are more likely to be suffer from mental illness (1).

Upcoming Presentation: Taking Control of Mood Disorders with Nutrition

I'm excited to announce that I will be the keynote speaker at an upcoming event hosted by the Canadian Society for Orthomolecular Medicine. I will be presenting a lecture called Taking Control of Mood Disorders with Nutrition. Attendees will learn about the cases of depression as well as diet, supplement and lifestyle approaches to improving mental health. I will share a wealth of research studies that support these approaches and help you to understand why they work. If you, or someone you know is affected by depression, I'd love for you to join us for an evening of education.
