The Food-Mood Connection: Nutritional and Environmental Approaches to Mental Health and Physical Wellbeing
Revised and Expanded Edition
Now, at a time when the effects of nutrition on mental health are becoming increasingly recognized and accepted by the general public, comes a completely revised tome from an early advocate of the subject: The Food-Mood Connection, by bestselling health and nutrition expert Gary Null, who was affectionately dubbed "the new Mister Natural" by Time magazine. Drawing from up-to-the-minute research and patient testimonials, Null reveals how alternative, nutrition-based approaches can effectively treat many mental disorders, chronic conditions, and a variety of commonly misdiagnosed organic conditions. With participation from more than sixty-five alternative practitioners, this edition includes new chapters, protocols for health, updates on topics ranging from alcoholism and depression to food allergies and PMS, plus revised supplementary sections on Prozac and autism.
"Null, a longtime champion of alternative health care, makes a good case. . . . His book is sure to find a big audience among those (including families) affected by these conditions." —Publishers Weekly
"In an increasingly Balkanized medical community, fractured by all manner of alternative therapies, Null, a Ph.D. in human nutrition and public-health science, is leading one of the biggest breakaway republics of all." —Jeffrey Kluger, Time
