In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Dr. Linda Plowright about the impact of nutrition on mental health. Dr. Plowright has made the strong correlation between eating a plant-based diet and your overall mental health and mental illness. She helps us understand all the differences between specific mood disorders. In today’s busy life it seems like everyone spirals out of control every now and then, so being able to recognize the signs of needing help is imperative. You’ll be shocked to hear what she has to say about the microbiome. This is an important episode to share with anyone who is affected by poor mental health or mental illness and their support systems. We do hope you share on Facebook, Instagram or any other form of social media to show your support for those suffering and thriving with mental illness.
