The Link Between Diet and Mental Disorders | Dr. Chris Palmer

The Darin Olien Show

There’s no doubt that a healthy diet and exercise help you feel better mentally. But is there a deeper link than that? What if most mental health disorders were metabolic problems in the brain? Could certain diets improve or even eliminate mental disorders? Dr. Chris Palmer, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School certainly thinks so– in fact, he’s seen it firsthand with his patients. Dr. Palmer’s work has led to The Brain Energy Theory of Mental Illness and his understanding that most mental disorders are a direct result of a metabolic breakdown in the brain. Listen to him explain his fascinating findings. || LINKS || www.brainenergy.com  | www.vivobarefoot.com | http://www.calderalab.com/darin | https://nootopia.com/darin | Full Show Notes - https://darinolien.com/the-link-between-diet-and-mental-disorders-dr-chris-palmer/
