Metabolic Health is Mental Health | Dr. Chris Palmer

Metabolic Health is Mental Health | Dr. Chris Palmer

This episode’s guest is Chris Palmer, M.D., a board-certified psychiatrist and assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He explains the important connection between nutrition, metabolism, and mental health and his pioneering work using the ketogenic diet to successfully treat patients with various mental illnesses, including depression and schizophrenia. I was absolutely blown away by this episode.

In this episode Dr Palmer and I discuss:

  • How mental illnesses aren't genetic disorders.
  • Serotonin levels aren't the cause of depression.
  • The link between Mitochondria dysfunction and mental disorders.
  • How to get rid of old defective mitochondria.
  • The importance of sleep on mental health.
