This podcast is part of our October 2023 Cognition and Mental Health special issue. Download the full issue here.
On behalf of the Natural Medicine Journal, I am thrilled to present this special issue on cognition and mental health. Millions of Americans experience mental illness or struggle with cognitive impairment. This issue offers perspectives in brain, mind, and mood research, and I hope the findings offer new ideas and insights that you can take back to your practice.
This issue of the journal highlights the effects of egg yolk choline intake on cognitive functions and plasma choline levels; the role of β-Alanine supplementation on cognitive function and mood in older adults; and how extra-virgin olive oil enhances the blood-brain barrier function in mild cognitive impairment. We’ve also included two fascinating podcast discussions: One on psilocybin with Emily Whinkin, ND, and the other on addressing mental health issues from a naturopathic perspective with Tara Peyman, ND.
As I reflect on this edition the journal and the year we’ve had at the Natural Medicine Journal, I want to take a moment to thank first and foremost our dedicated authors, editorial board, and staff members, without whom these publications would not be possible. I would also like to recognize our sponsors, advertisers, and industry partners, for their continued support of the journal.
Lastly, I cannot close without thanking you, our readers and community members. Your engagement is the reason we publish this journal, and we are grateful for your support. With that in mind, we invite you to share your feedback with us at Natural Medicine Journal, along with our digital online resource Integrative Practitioner and annual in-person conference the Integrative Healthcare Symposium. Our virtual door is always open should you have questions or feedback on how we can better support you and your practice. Please email [email protected] with your comments.
