On this episode of Health Gig, we welcome celebrated Nutritional Psychiatrist Dr. Uma Naidoo. As both a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and professional chef, she serves as the Director of Nutritional and Lifestyle Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital. In her research on the relationship between mental health and the gut microbiome, Dr. Naidoo was inspired to write This Is Your Brain on Food, a guide to the mind-body relationship of food consumption that is celebrated in both the academic and culinary communities. In addition to writing about the effects of good eating, she also develops delicious recipes, leads successful cooking seminars, and teaches healthy cooking techniques at the Massachusetts General Hospital Academy.
