More than Meets the Eye: Linking Nutrition & Behavioral Health

Today is Saturday March 28, 2020. The world is in quarantine due to COVID-19 and many are in a behavioral health crisis. I am not depressed about it although certainly concerned for the welfare of my fellows, particularly those in recovery. I have been conducting Zoom and FaceTime sessions with people all over the world and doing what I can to be helpful. I do have more time to work on manuscripts and other academic projects. Tonight I will be coding up some variables for a data analysis.

Last night I had the idea to share my latest presentation with my newsletter followers. So I spent an hour recording my latest presentation “More than Meets the Eye: Linking Nutrition & Behavioral Health.” I hope you enjoy!

The presentation discusses: Traumaadversitynutritioneating disorders, substance use disorders, opioid crisis, food addiction, neurosciencegut-brain axismicrobiome, recovery, treatment and so much more! Nutrition for behavioral health is the future!
