Nutritional psychiatry is an emerging field that explores the connection between nutrition science and mental and emotional well-being. Dr. Uma Naidoo, our guest on this week’s podcast episode, is a trailblazer in the field and who calls food “one of the most potent mental health medicines available.” We speak with Dr. Naidoo about how nutrients in everyday foods can benefit and hinder our mental health, the connection between gut health and the brain, and the potential of nutrition as a supportive tool for conditions like depression, anxiety, and more.
