Food Versus Mood: Eating for Your Physical and Mental Health with Uma Naidoo, MD
In stressful times when we’re anxious or depressed we often look to “comfort foods”. But do they really help improve our mood or just make things worse? Join Dr. Naidoo, Director of Nutritional and Lifestyle Psychiatry at MGH, for a fascinating discussion of cutting-edge research that demonstrates the many ways foods contribute to our mental health and how a sound diet can help treat and prevent a wide-range of psychological and cognitive issues. She will also provide practical tips for how to eat better in order to feel better.
Dr. Naidoo has been described as a “triple threat” in the food and medicine space – a board-certified psychiatrist, nutritional specialist and professionally trained chef. Her latest book, This is Your Brain on Food
, is the go-to guide for optimizing your mental health with food.
