I'm excited to pass along to all my patients and colleagues. The explanations are so helpful and understandable.


Lots of great science and actionable insights.



I loved it! So often these books are written so far above the mainstream's head and without personality. This is the first time anyone has described why meditation is almost impossible for someone like me.

Justin Bethoney NP

In practicing psychiatry for the past 10 years, I have learned a few important lessons. First, it's complicated. Healing can take many different paths. What works for one person, may not help the next. Second, taking care of our body and mind is essential, yet often missed or ignored. We are resilient, often much more than we know. But, we also tend get in our own way. We take on too much. We don't sleep enough. Relaxation is optional. Food needs to be quick and easy. And, we even forget to breathe sometimes. In our modern-day lives, all of this is happening, all of the time. Since it's happening all the time, we don't even realize we are pushing so hard, nor do we identify it as a problem.

Depression, anxiety, scattered thinking, and other mental health symptoms can be the consequences of failing to fix what's broken in our daily lives. These difficult mental illness symptoms can also stem from things outside of our control as well. All the more reason to protect our bodies, brains, and minds from the daily onslaught of stress and toxicity in modern-day life. This is why I wrote The Mental Wellness Diet. It is a prescription for living in a way that follows our genetic and evolutionary instruction manual.
