Optimal Protein Podcast (Fast Keto) with Vanessa Spina

Nov 21, 2022

Hi friends! Today's episode is Part 2 of 2 with Dr. Chris Palmer. A Harvard psychiatrist conducting neuroscience for 25 years, Dr. Palmer outlines a revolutionary new understanding that for the first time unites our existing knowledge about mental illness within a single framework: Mental disorders are metabolic disorders of the brain
He explains this new understanding of mental illness in detail, from symptoms and risk factors to what is happening in brain cells. We discuss ketogenic diets, and cutting edge new science regarding the mitochondria. We also discuss the link between metabolism and every factor known to play a role in mental health, including genetics, inflammation, hormones, neurotransmitters, sleep, stress, and trauma.
In his new book, Brain Energy, Dr. Palmer sheds light on the new treatment pathways this theory opens up—which apply to all mental disorders, including anxiety, depression, ADHD, alcoholism, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, autism, and even schizophrenia. Brain Energy pairs cutting-edge science with practical advice and strategies to help people reclaim their mental health.
