You know that feeling when you order food that looks great but makes you feel like crap? Maybe it’s deep fried or sugar-ladden. It tastes great, but an hour later, you regret it. Now what if that happens once a week, once a day, or multiple times a day for years? 

Obviously, your physical health can suffer, but your mental health can too. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a nutritional psychiatrist who is a thought leader on the mental health and nutrition connection. 

Listen and learn:

  • How turmeric plus black pepper makes the curcumin 20x more bioavailable
  • Only 10% of the USA population eats enough fresh produce daily
  • Prebiotic vs. probiotics
  • Psycho-social aspect of foods and how that impacts your mental health

Most people get an average of six-and-a-half hours of sleep each night while needing seven to nine hours. This chronic, endemic sleep deprivation contributes to hormonal imbalances, car accidents, and increased susceptibility to chronic illnesses. Even knowing this, we watch one more episode of our favorite series, stay up to empty our email inboxes, or toss and turn with anxiety until 2:00 am. Is there any way out of this trap? Our guest on this week’s podcast is a sleep expert and shares his best ideas.

  • Three hour gap between dinner and bed
  • Two hour gap between work and bed
  • One hour work between screens and sleep
  • Sleep debt: truth or fiction?
  • How to combat lifestyle jetlag
