Summary

Cheng Ruan, MD

You know, so many people have put mental health in a bucket by itself away from brain health. And that’s just not right. So there’s a metabolic theory of mental illness that we really need to talk about on the basis of brain energy. Dr. Christopher Palmer is a Harvard psychiatrist and researcher working at the interface of metabolism and mental health is the director of the department of post graduate and continue education at the McLean Hospital, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard medical school. So over 25 years, he’s held administrative, educational research and clinical roles in the psychiatry at Harvard and he’s coming out with this amazing book actually, it’s already out. 

The book is already out with this amazing book about how the brain actually works around mental illness and mental health is truly brain health and how food can really affect what we think of our existing mental illnesses. But what we don’t want to do is to categorize each mental illness as its own thing and not look at the bigger picture. So, I’m super happy to welcome Dr. Christopher Palmer onto the forum. I’m super excited to have a chat with you. We met on twitter of all places. And you put out a tweet for one of the chapters of your book, Really just talking about the metabolic force of the brain and I’m like, you know what really got to talk to this guy. So thanks for coming on. I appreciate you.
