The Food-Mood Connection : Nutritional and Environmental Approaches to Mental Health and Physical Wellbeing
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.
The host of the syndicated daily health radio program Natural Living with Gary Null here takes on the current epidemic of mental-health problems in the U.S. and shows that many of these disorders can be remedied more effectively, faster and much less expensively with natural means than with traditional approaches. Null (Gary Null's Ultimate Anti-Aging Program), a longtime champion of alternative health care, makes a good case for looking at the nutritional and environmental factors that may be causing such chronic conditions as depression, alcoholism, Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia and eating disorders. Tapping more than 50 physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists and holistic doctors, Null presents research, case studies and opinions that support his claim that most mental and emotional conditions can be helped, and often cured, by treating biochemical imbalances. For those who have had lifelong battles with depression, eating disorders and schizophrenia and been given little hope for recovery, the news that, for example, administration of liquid zinc has cured people of anorexia within a few months will be most welcome. Null reports that more than 500,000 children are on antidepressants and that rates of schizophrenia are rising; his book is sure to find a big audience among those (including families) affected by these conditions.
