Learn to heal depression, anxiety, brain fog, and other mental disorders without drugs.
Every part of your body affects every other part of your body, and if any one area is not functioning properly, other systems will feel it, too. There is a fundamental connection between the brain, the gut, the microbiome, and the thyroid — which Dr Raphael Kellman calls ‘the whole brain’. In this lively, accessible book, he reveals how this system works in tandem to keep us healthy, and how, by making small changes, we can use it to heal mood and mental disorders without drugs.
With a practical guide featuring meal plans, an exercise program, and a program of daily meditations and affirmations, The Whole Brain Diet will benefit people diagnosed with depression or anxiety, and those who just want to feel better in themselves.
‘With depression affecting more than 300 million people worldwide, a path to healing that takes into account multiple factors is long overdue. In The Whole Brain Diet, Dr. Raphael Kellman shares his groundbreaking research, showing the intimate connections between the gut, microbriome, thyroid, and brain, and then offers a proven, holistic plan that doesn’t rely on prescription medication.’
Mark Hyman, MD, Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Functional Medicine, the Founder of The UltraWellness Center
