Nutrition and Mental Health: What is the Connection? Christina Veselak, LMFT, CN
< 1 day ago
Join our host Kristin Walker as she learns about focusing on Mental Health and Nutrition with Christina Veselak MA, LMFT, CN. Christina's experience and training as a Mental Health Nutritionist has led her to see how our personal biochemistry affects our mood and behavior. By practicing Mental Health Nutrition she is able to help her clients identify nutritionally based issues such as protein intake, blood sugar balance & hypoglycemia, food intolerance's and genetic issues in order to reduce depression, anxiety, insomnia, relapse, and even some psychotic symptoms. Most complex disorders have both emotional and biochemical components to them, therefore, we need to address both at the same time.
