Wise Mind Nutrition

Welcome to our latest exploration into the transformative power of nutrition for mental health. At the heart of our journey is Dr. David Wiss, founder of Wise Mind Nutrition, who recently shared invaluable insights on The Out of the Cave Podcast, hosted by Lisa Schlosberg.

A Fusion of Passion and Knowledge

Dr. Wiss’s approach transcends traditional dietary advice, focusing on “wise mind energy” to foster a balanced relationship with food and body. This innovative method emphasizes adding nutrient-dense foods to our diets, enhancing mental health and well-being without restricting joy and satisfaction from eating.

  • Support for therapists and coaches: A platform for professionals to engage with clients, enhancing the therapeutic journey with nutritional insights.
  • Affordable access: Making mental health nutrition accessible to all, regardless of financial constraints.
