Having as healthy a brain as possible can't help but be good for psychotherapy.
Nutritionist Barbara Mendez, who has guest posted here, wrote a post a while back on her own blog Roots and Seeds titled Six Foods Your Brain Will Thank You For.
Here are the six foods - to read more about how each is good for your brain, click on the link above.
- Wild Alaskan salmon
- Nuts and seeds
Hmmm, cacao... chocolate... None of those foods sound hard to take, do they? I get a daily dose of flax by sprinkling ground flax seeds on my cereal (get the vacuum packed kind for freshness). This kind of good nutrition will help your brain make the most of the good work you're doing in therapy.
