Many people believe that diet has little to do with mental or emotional health. Yet hundreds of research studies prove that nutrient deficiencies and imbalances adversely affect the way we think and feel. After all, the brain and the nervous system are integral parts of our physical bodies and need to be nourished, just like the other organs. With a healthy body and brain, we can produce the endorphins and other biochemical com- pounds needed to feel optimistic, happy, balanced and focused. These “feel-good” chemicals not only equip us to become high functioning individuals able to cope with the stresses of daily life, but also help those who’ve suffered psychological wounds and traumas.
