20 May Nutritional Psychiatry for a Healthy Mind & Body
1 in 5 people will experience a mental health condition in their life. That’s over 40 million Americans; more than the populations of New York and Florida combined.
When you or someone you love is dealing with a mental health issue, sometimes it’s a lot to handle. Symptoms of mental illnesses are different for everyone – some people engage in risky behaviors like compulsive sex, recreational drug use, obsessive internet use, excessive spending to avoid or cover up mental health problems.
That’s why we support Mental Health Month #4MIND4BODY
Here at Skylonda Lodge, we believe that there is no shame in mental illness. And we know that there are lifestyle changes that can ease symptoms and facilitate healing. It’s well known that things like exercise and environment can have some massive, positive effects on your life.
But did you know that a healthy mind starts with the fork?
The emerging field of nutritional psychiatry is finding that the food you eat directly affects the structure of your digestive tract, the function of your brain, and, ultimately, your mood. Mindful nutrition that considers your holistic health gives you the energy and zest for life needed to engage in other healthy activities like exercise and or stepping outside of your comfort zone.
These are some of the experts we trust to help us maintain a healthy mind:
