Format: Hardcover
Linking Nutrition to Mental Health is an essential book for anyone working in the mental health field. It will be best understood by dietitians, but is written so that everyone can understand the science. I recommend the book to all those living with mental illness and their families, as well as the professionals. The topic of nutrition and mental health is covered so thoroughly that I now have a great resource always at my fingertips.

Content Layout:

Linking Nutrition to Mental Health begins with a brief background on the mental and nutritional health in today's society. The mental health in today's society section offers several surprising facts. For example, mental illnesses are ranked highest among all illnesses that cause disability. The next section, nutrition in today's society, goes on to introduce the declining nutritional state of the United States population. These statistics of today's nutritional state are also intriguing. Overall, Dr. Ruth Leyses-Wallace provides a sufficient amount of statistical evidence for each category to support her claims.

The book continues with a brief history of the link between nutrition and mental health. This section begins with the history of orthomolecular medicine. This is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the prevention of diseases by maintaining an optimal nutrition intake. In this section, the author also introduces the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and their role in the metal health of today's society.

This is a summary of scientific studies linking nutrition to and various aspects of mental health--very factual, thoroughly refernced, though dry.
