Drew Ramsey, MD on How to Eat to Beat Depression & Anxiety
In today's episode of the podcast, I chat with my good friend and colleague, Drew Ramsey, MD. We discuss the most important parts of his latest book, Eat to Beat Depression and Anxiety, and how we can use nutritional psychiatry to help combat our current mental health crisis. Drew Ramsey, MD, is a psychiatrist, author, and farmer. He is a clear voice in the mental health conversation and one of psychiatry’s leading proponents of using nutritional interventions. He is an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. We chat about mental well-being and in the context of the pandemic and overall life. “We’ve all had our mental health challenged in a way that really hasn’t happened to many of us before,” he says, “from losing employment to the profound grief so many families are experiencing to the loss of our social structures and our ability to maintain our connections.” But nutrition is an oft-forgotten medicine in our toolkits and we dive into the foods and nutrients that we can include in our diets to help us eat our way to better brain, and therefore better mental, health.
