The Surprisingly Dramatic Role of Nutrition on Mental Illness

This is amazing. I literally stumbled upon this while looking for videos on S Corps (exciting right?).  Clinical physiologist Julia Rucklidge has being studying the impact of micronutrients on mental illness and the results are stunning.  To be clear: micronutrients are vitamin pills and supplements like fish oil. Nothing fancy.  Her focus is mental illness the ramifications of her work are far greater.

This made me choke up.  Really I can’t emphasize enough how world shaking and important this talk is.  Certainly worth the 17 minutes.  Must watch.

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com

    Makes sense! Our bodies can’t function properly without macronutrients AND micronutrients. Our nervous system is highly affected by proper nutrition! Great TEDtalk thanks for sharing!
