Mental Wellness Books by Dr. Christina BjorndalTo say this book is a complete guide is an understatement… Dr. Korn manages to offer every imaginable support one needs from peer-reviewed data validating her assertions to sample dialogues, case vignettes, goal setting procedures and essential outcomes… The Appendices are a treasure trove in themselves with comprehensive resources, guidelines, recipes, a sample client intake form, food-mood diary, and lists of foods containing gluten, lactose, casein, dairy, corn and oh so much more. Chapter three is particularly helpful for therapists, as it includes a clinician checklist, food journals, and sample dialogue with a client for those new to addressing nutrition in a clinical counseling session. This easy-to-read guide is an invaluable resource for mental health professionals and is highly recommended. I highly recommend this book to any professional or clinician working in the mental health field, as it will provide an invaluable resource for their patients.
Nutrition and Mental Health - The Scientific Evidence - Professor Lorraine Brennan
Nutrition and Mental Illness
Our philosophy is rooted in combining the science of nutrition and the art of healthy living, which is about honoring different ways we nourish ourselves. As human beings, to reach our optimal wholeness and wellness, health and wellbeing truly require us to combine many pillars of our life from nutrition, sleep , stress management, to finding our purpose and joy. We all have our own stories, experiences, challenges, and successes in finding what works for us to support our unique mental health and wellbeing. Because of that, I wanted to create an answer to the many questions I get as a wellness coach and from our community about books and resources that can support your journey. These experiences and challenges with my mental health were some of the most beautiful experiences in my life — which may sound contradictory — but these experiences with mental health challenged me to explore my own wellbeing, seek help when needed, and do the internal daily work that requires continual practice, love, and patience.
Chris is a unique and motivational author with a captivating story of hope, recovery, success and desire to seek the truth in all things. She will inspire you to take charge of your life and health as she guides you through her personal journey of recovery from many challenges in the realm of mental health including depression, adoption, abandonment, anxiety both general and social , panic attacks, bulimia, stress, disordered eating, addiction and more. What she has endured and overcome will shock and surprise you — you will journey with Dr. Chris on an emotional roller coaster ride with her as she takes you through her personal experiences. The act of writing — putting pen to paper — is a dying art, a dwindling practice displaced by technology. My hope is that the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of yourself will receive the best medicine as you fill the pages of this journal. I wish you relaxation, comfort, solace, compassion and wisdom.
MIAW l MENTAL ILLNESS BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS.
The author emphasizes the link between digestive disorders and mental distress, both of which can be positively impacted by the nutritional therapy recommended in later chapters and the appendices. This component is further strengthened by a chapter dedicated to how to actively listen to patients and assess them with accuracy and sensitivity. Perhaps the most beneficial component that sets the book apart and makes it accessible to the student, clinician, and lay reader alike is the breakdown of individual nutritional essentials and the role they play in the day-by-day treatment plan for mental health. Korn goes into detail from the macro-nutrient approach down to the consistent benefits of supplemental therapy on vitamin and mineral levels. While I cannot comment on the validity of the book from the perspective of a psychiatric or counseling professional, I can say that as a patient who suffered from the nutritional deficiencies and medical issues as well as the mental health concerns described, I would have greatly benefited from this book during my illness. Korn breaks the nutritional foundation down in such a way that I can see the contributing factors to my own illness, as well as the prescribed nutritional therapy and supplements that would have helped alleviate my illness.
