During the month of May, mental health awareness is on the page of every newsfeed on the Internet and in the newspapers, but it’s a topic that really needs to be discussed year-round. And the connection between diet and mental health is an important part of this conversation. Read on to learn how you can improve your gut and your brain with plant-based nutrition.
Bill and I have worked with clients and students for decades who have suffered from many aspects of mental health. Their suffering could have been the result of losing a loved one; a diagnosis of some terminal illness; the loss of their home, job; or any other multitude of things that humans are challenged with daily. Of course, I am not suggesting that when a tragedy happens in your life plants can wave a magic wand and heal your pain, but connecting the gut/brain to clinical depression/mental health is something that we are both hugely passionate about teaching.
