This week on the show Mikki speaks to Dr Chris Palmer, psychiatrist, all about nutritional psychology and the intersect between metabolic health and brain health. They discuss how these two concepts are linked, the problem with current therapies for mental health and the use of the ketogenic diet as a tool to help improve patient outcomes.
For the past 25 years, he has been an academic physician with administrative, research, educational, and clinical roles.
Dr. Palmer’s clinical practice has focused on helping people suffering from treatment-resistant mental illnesses, including mood disorders, psychotic disorders, and personality disorders. His treatment approach has been comprehensive and has included psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and complementary and alternative treatments. However, he has always been looking for better treatments and outcomes because far too many people do not get better with our current approaches.

What is Mikkipedia?
Mikkipedia is an exploration in all things health, well being, fitness, food and nutrition. I sit down with scientists, doctors, professors, practitioners and people who have a wealth of experience and have a conversation that takes a deep dive into their area of expertise. I love translating science into a language that people understand, so while some of the conversations will be pretty in-depth, you will come away with some practical tips that can be instigated into your everyday life. I hope you enjoy the show!
