We are What we Eat

MentalHealthExercisePersonal trainer, nutritionist, author, and health blogger Jenay Green often writes about the importance of good nutrition (www.tipsonlivinghealthy.com ) and the value of exercise. Here at Dawning Phoenix, we support our psychotherapy clients in the quest for better mental health, including improving the physical body. Exercise and physical activity are strongly supported by research for improved mental health. Substances (including food, sugar, alcohol, or both prescription and non-prescription or illegal drugs) affect the body. This article from Scientific American highlights an experiment that reinforces the concept that we truly “are what we eat.”
