The Mind Gut Connection
Every time you eat, you have an opportunity to nourish your body and mind.
Let me help you explore the connection between food and mood and how you can utilize nutrition to mitigate symptoms associated with mental health and mood disorders.
Your Mood on Food
Symptoms associated with mental health and mood disorders such as anxiety, depression, brain fog, fatigue, irritability, poor memory, difficulty concentrating, loss of appetite or overeating, loss of interest, insomnia, and low mood or difficulty regulating mood are often presentations of other underlying causes.
Things like inconsistent meal patterns, imbalanced blood sugar, dysregulated nervous system, adrenal fatigue, nutrient deficiencies, chronic inflammation, exposure to heavy metals, improper gut health, hormonal imbalances, and dysregulated neural pathways can all contribute to poor and dysregulated mood.
I will help you explore how proper diet, lifestyle, self-regulation & mindset strategies and personalized herbs and supplements can help you gain better control over your mental health symptoms and restore your relationship with food.
Let's Change the Standard
Mental health and mood disorders are increasingly on the rise. And there’s good reason for that.
In today’s society, we are constantly living in a state of burnout. We are disconnected from nature, we are disconnected from community, we are disconnected from real, nutrient-dense foods, and many of us find ourselves perpetuating toxic jobs and relationships.
Keeping it all together is an uphill battle. And while conventional medicine continues to treat the body as compartmentalized fragments, traditional medical systems are failing so many of us.
In a perfect world, coordination of care would be ubiquitous. Primary care would collaborate with psychiatry, psychiatry would collaborate with dietetics, and so on. It is crucial that we start to normalize seeking out the help of a registered dietitian when navigating the space of mental health.
