To truly live well-to feel good, engage

in productive activities, enjoy fulfilling

relationships with other people, and be

able to adapt to change and cope with

adversity-Americans must start addressing

mental health with the same urgency as

physical health. With that in mind, registered

dietitian Dr. Ruth Leyse-Wallace gathers

breakthrough scientific research from around

the world to demonstrate how powerfully

nutrition can affect our mental well-being

as much as our physical well-being.

Dr. Leyse-Wallace reports on the latest

and most compelling findings about the

ways in which diet, supplements, genetics,

and health conditions can make a difference

in mental health. She explores how the

short-term and long-term intake of vitamins,

minerals, essential fatty acids, proteins,

carbohydrates, medications, alcohol, and

caffeine can potentially influence mental

functioning, and she explains her emerging

Theory of PsychoNutriologic Person.

Far greater than an evidentiary summary,

Linking Nutrition to Mental Health gives

tailored recommendations to individuals,

healthcare providers, and scientists for

putting these groundbreaking research

discoveries into practice to achieve a

vastly improved quality of life.
