Episode details

It took me a long time of struggling myself before I realized that a large part of our mental health & wellness hinges on how well we understood our nutritional status and lifestyle habits. I sat down with Dr. Kate Henry of Rupa Health to untangle this intriguing question and discovered a multitude of insights that may be the key to unlocking a healthier, more balanced, mental state. We explored the pivotal roles of overall health, nutrient status, hormonal status, and fitness on mental health, and how they can be leveraged to both prevent and treat mental health issues.
