EP153: How To Eat Your Way To Mental Health with Dr. Nicole LaPera


Did you know that bipolar disorder can sometimes be improved by stabilizing blood sugar? 

Or that eliminating gluten has been shown to improve schizophrenia? 

Or that anxiety and depression can be effectively managed via dietary intervention?


It’s actually possible to eat your way to mental health.

In fact, it’s how I was finally able to free myself from the anxiety I suffered from for over 15 years, despite conventional interventions like talk therapy and antidepressants. 

The link between food and mood is truly one of my favorite topics in the whole wide world, which is why I had to share one of my favorite experts on the topic, Dr. Nicole LaPera, in this week’s podcast!

Dr. Nicole LePera trained in Psychology at Cornell University and The New School for Social Research in New York City. She practices as a holistic psychologist and is founder of the Mindful Healing Center in Philadelphia.  

Her work addresses the connection between the mind and body and incorporates nutrition, lifestyle, and psychological wellness practices. 


A true pioneer bridging the gap between psychology and nutrition with incredible results!

After following her on Instagram for just 7 days, I felt educated, empowered, inspired, and more emotionally intelligent. And after you listen to this podcast I know you’ll feel the same!

Tune in now and don’t forget to share this important message and EMPOWER everyone you know and love!
