Thoroughly enjoyed the interview with Rocco around oxytocin use in psychosis, maintaining hope and patience in patient care, and the exhortation to never give up. The conversation was informative and meaningful. Planning to listen to more as I train in psychiatry and addiction med and also to share this podcast with friends pursuing psych. Thank you, from a resilient, hopeful medical student.

Refreshing to hear Dr Ede’s thoughts on nutrition and mental health! Others in the psychiatric field are exploring nutritional impacts as well and this is refreshing. To hear.
The shift needs to include these important conversations in light of the rising instances of mental illness; specifically for those who are not finding optimum results with just conventional schools of thought within conventional treatment options.
To the many who suffer with these debilitating illness, pleased to hear guests sharing these important perspectives! Thank you!
The recent podcast regarding nutrition and mental illness played to the agenda of the guest speaker Dr. Ede, and was not an evidence based representation of the current state of research. Stephanie please do a little homework ahead of time so that you can do more than agree with everything said!
