🎧 Listen to the interview:
I’m truly honored to bring you my interview with Dr. Uma Naidoo. She’s one of the most prominent people bringing nutritional psychiatry into the mainstream.
Michelin starred chef David Boulay described her as the world’s first “triple threat” in the food and medicine space. She’s a Harvard trained psychiatrist, a professional chef graduating with her culinary school’s most coveted award, and a trained nutrition specialist.
She’s the Director of Nutritional and Lifestyle Psychiatry at Massachusetts General and Director of Nutritional Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital Academy while also serving on the faculty at Harvard Medical School. She was considered Harvard’s “mood-food expert” and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and so many other places, too many to name.
Dr. Naidoo is also the national best selling author of This is Your Brain on Food: An Indispensable Guide to the Surprising Foods that Fight Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, and More. In it, she shows the cutting edge science and explains the ways in which food contributes to our mental health and how a diet can help treat and prevent a wide range of psychological and cognitive health issues.
Her new book is Calm Your Mind With Food: A Revolutionary Guide to Controlling Your Anxiety—a revolutionary full body approach to relieving anxiety in particular, including anti anxiety recipes and meal plan guidelines.
We talk about that and so much more, primarily how nutritional psychiatry and mental health recovery can work together.
So please enjoy my interview. With Dr. Naidoo—also known as Dr. Uma.
