Brain Food & Nutritional Psychiatry with Dr. Drew Ramsey – Episode 151

May 17, 2022

When we consider our health, we typically think first of the foods that we tend to eat. Our third largest body organ is the brain. And when we consider nutrition as an aspect of our mental wellbeing, we have control over the healthy food choices that positively impact our brain and our mental health. In today’s episode, Dr. Graham Taylor speaks with Dr. Drew Ramsey. Drew is a diplomat of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He has a psychiatric practice and the founder of the brain food clinic in New York City. Drew co-hosts Friday Sessions an IGTV series on male mental health for Men’s Health Magazine. He’s delivered three TED Talks and appeared on the BBC documentary Food and the Brain. Drew has authored four books, including his newest book , Eat To Beat Depression and Anxiety, and his writings have been featured on the Today’s Show, CBS Sunday Morning, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. Together Graham and Drew discuss nutritional psychiatry and the importance of food on mental health, the reasons behind why we eat, using foods as a primary preventative option for our mental health, teaching ways for clinicians to incorporate nutrition into their practice, nutrient density, and the eight favorite foods for optimal impact on the brain. Evolve as a eater and be open to these things that actually have some real positive impact on the things that we can control and contribute to our wellbeing.
