Having a good diet and regular exercise regimen has plenty of physical health benefits. But what do they do to our mental health? Is it possible to optimize our dietary and workout habits to achieve better mental health?
In a presentation on Friday, August 21, Dr. Chris Palmer talked about the connections between mind, body, and plate—and he answered questions about how what we eat and how we work out can change our state of health.
