Food can affect our mood - we’ve all experienced it. In the past, psychiatry has been concerned with what happens in the brain. Today, we know that what’s going on in the gut can impact our mental health. Professor Felice Jacka is a pioneer of nutritional psychiatry. She discusses her groundbreaking research on how food can affect our mood.

In this episode you’ll learn about the link between anxiety, depression and diet. Felice shares her own mental health issues growing up, and offers simple lifestyle tweaks to that will make your gut and feel better.
