The Link Between Food and Mental Health, How We Are Changing the Mental Health Space at the Interface of Metabolism & Psychiatric Disorders with Harvard Psychiatrist Dr. Chris Palmer The Gabby Reece Show

    • Mental Health

My guest today is Harvard medical physician Dr. Chris Palmer. Dr. Palmer has extensive experience in psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. Paying close attention to the impact of the ketogenic diet on epileptic patients Dr. Palmer started exploring improving the lives of people suffering from mental illness with the same nutritional approach. The ketogenic diet is the most well-studied diet by neuroscientists for epileptic patients for 100 years. Dr. Palmer explains that it's not just the body that has a metabolic function but so does the brain. His latest book, Brain Energy, is an extensive science book for the general public. He treats patients with mild symptoms of depression, OCD, and eating disorders to patients who have severe conditions of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. He has renewed his energy and excitement about the possibilities of truly helping people in the field of mental health not just with medication but with lifestyle. Enjoy!
