This week on Wellbeing is the last episode in our six part series on depression. We are joined by Dr. Drew Ramsey and we are discussing depression recovery through diet. Drew Ramsey, M.D. is a psychiatrist and is a leader in Nutritional Psychiatry having authored Eat To Beat Depression and Anxiety in 2021. He is also an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.  He is pioneer in the Nutritional Psychiatry field having, along with his team, offered the first Nutritional Psychiatry Clinician Training program to mental health clinicians whereby they learn evidence and clinical methods to effectively use nutrition in their work. Other books he has authored concerning food and mental health include the award-winning cookbook Eat Complete: The 21 Nutrients that Fuel Brain Power and the bestseller 50 Shades of KaleHe has done TedTalks on the subject and been featured in CBS, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and now The Wellbeing Podcast.

In this episode, Dr Ramsey talks about his book, how the food we eat impacts our mental health, how the western diet doesn't promote good mental health, the similar impact better diet has to that of antidepressants, steps in how to change your diet over time, how gut health and the brain interact, the types of foods that promote good mental health and the impact processed foods have on mental health.

"What happens with foods is that over time, if you're missing certain nutrients you're going to have a lot more inflammation, but you're also just not going to be able to make some of these basic building blocks you need for mental health." - Dr Drew Ramsey on this episode of Wellbeing
