She’s an Integrative Dietitian, High-Performance Coach, and the best-selling author of Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous. She has helped thousands of women feel and look their best, balance their hormones, eliminate their need for medication, and reverse chronic illness.

 

We discuss everything from nutritional changes throughout a woman's cycle, advocating for ourselves and loved ones in our medical system, and the need for more diversity, food sovereignty, regional appropriateness, and empathy in our food system and dietary recommendations.

 

Esther and I got fired up in this chat and you'll hear our passions throughout this entire show.

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.

Be sure to check out this episode and his latest book right away.

To get to know him and his practice, follow Drew on Instagram, Facebook, and his website where you can read his articles and take his courses.
