Integrative Insider LIVE! Nutrition and Stress
Psychological stress has become a ubiquitous element in our lives, exerting many direct and indirect effects on our health. Poor eating habits are often a response to stress, contributing to inadequate nutritional status, metabolic disease, and a vicious cycle of comfort eating. On the other hand, certain dietary components may either increase or mitigate stress and feelings of psychological well-being. This presentation will cover the background science on the complex, bi-directional interplay between nutrition and stress, discuss tactics to improve dietary behavior through healthy approaches to stress management, and how we can use food to optimize our mental health.
Join the Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute for this month's FREE community lecture featuring Karen Lindsay, PhD, RDN. Dr. Lindsay will be discussing stress and nutrition.
