“Nutritional Psychiatry: Rethinking the Role of Food, Nutrients, & Microbes in Mental Health” is an important update, primer and call to action for health professionals with presentations from world-leading clinicians and research scientists in the areas of integrative psychiatry, nutritional medicine, the gut-microbiome-brain axis, and polyphenols and brain function.
The role of nutrition in the prevention and management of mental illness has only very recently become widely appreciated with evidence quickly accumulating to support a crucial role of nutritional medicine in mental health care. This represents an important paradigm shift beyond the modest success of traditional pharmacological treatments.
Research suggests that diet is an important modifiable risk factor for mental health and the first clinical trials of dietary interventions for mood, cognitive and behavioural disorders have recently been published. Food supplement-based interventions that address deficiencies or are used as monotherapies or pharmacological augmentation therapies are also becoming established.
Mechanisms that underlie the nutrition-related pathophysiology of mental illness, including inflammation, oxidative stress, neuroplasticity, and the gut microbiome, are under investigation with translational science beginning to realize functional medicine-based assessments and personalised nutritional and lifestyle medicine interventions into clinical practice.
