“Thanks for a great seminar… It was truly the best professional development seminar I’ve been to in a few years. It was strong because you not only presented a ton of information quickly and thoroughly, you are also interesting speakers…”


“You brought the science through a wide-angle lens while also zooming in on what’s most important to take back to our clinical work.”

“I’ve immediately incorporated some of the material into my practice. I spoke with a long term client of mine (chronic anxiety, depression, personality disorder) who seems to always be dieting. I made a few suggestions for types of foods she might add to her diet and it really helped her to think about what she COULD eat rather than what she “shouldn’t.” I also spoke to a newer client (panic disorder, trauma survivor) who is a vegetarian about the choline findings you shared. She was glad to have some good news coming from tofu!”

Why Nutritional Psychiatry?

In this module we’ll cover the history and growth of nutritional psychiatry, as well as the various ways professionals all over the world are integrating nutritional psychiatry into their practices.

The History of Food Change

In this module, we’ll explore neuroplasticity, epigenetics, BDNF and the latest scientific research on food and brain health. The science of brain nutrition has rapidly evolved and the evidence is very clear. What we eat directly impacts our brain, and our mental health, and diet remains the most powerful modifiable risk factor for depression. This module walks you through the latest science and the proof that your food choices really do matter for brain health and depression.

The Nutrients That Beat Depression: Natural Anti-Depression Foods

Certain nutrients are more clearly involved in depression. If your brain cells are missing zinc or vitamin B12, they are missing key ingredients needed to beat depression. Lower intakes of these nutrients are highly correlated with depression, and a deficiency simply causes low energy, irritability, brain fog, and a lower mood. This module covers the core nutrients people are most commonly lacking, reviews why they are key for brain health, AND identifies the foods that are the best brain supplements. Something about FOOC CATEGORIES

The Therapuetic Relationship

Some would aruge that the most importnat part of any clinicians job is creating a strong therapuetic relationship. In this module we’ll cover the basics of alliance building, motivational interviewing, harm reduction, goal setting and other components of creating a successful therapuetic relationship.




Plus 4 bonus videos!
These videos cover special topics like brain nutrition and pregnancy and review some essential skills like mindfulness that are useful for making behavioral changes. We hope you enjoy!

What Patients are saying:

“I’ve stopped looking at food as something to deprive myself of (to reduce calories) and instead see it as something that fuels not just my body, but also can rebuild my brain.”

Eat Complete

Winner of a 2017 IACP Cookbook Award  •  Finalist for a Books for a Better Life Award

Named one of the top health and wellness books for 2016 by Well + Good and MindBodyGreen


From leading psychiatrist and author of Fifty Shades of Kale comes a collection of 100 simple, delicious, and affordable recipes to help you get the core nutrients your brain and body need to stay happy and healthy.

What does food have to do with brain health? Everything.

Your brain burns more of the food you eat than any other organ. It determines if you gain or lose weight, if you’re feeling energetic or fatigued, if you’re upbeat or depressed. In this essential guide and cookbook, Drew Ramsey, MD, explores the role the human brain plays in every part of your life, including mood, health, focus, memory, and appetite, and reveals what foods you need to eat to keep your brain—and by extension your body—properly fueled.

Drawing upon cutting-edge scientific research, Dr. Ramsey identifies the twenty-one nutrients most important to brain health and overall well-being—the very nutrients that are often lacking in most people’s diets. Without these nutrients, he emphasizes, our brains and bodies don’t run the way they should.

Eat Complete includes 100 appetizing, easy, gluten-free recipes engineered for optimal nourishment. It also teaches readers how to use food to correct the nutrient deficiencies causing brain drain and poor health for millions. For example:

• Start the day with an Orange Pecan Waffle or a Turmeric Raspberry Almond Smoothie, and the Vitamin E found in the nuts will work to protect vulnerable brain fat (plus the fiber keeps you satisfied until lunch).

• Enjoy Garlic Butter Shrimp over Zucchini Noodles and Mussels with Garlicky Kale Ribbons and Artichokes, and the zinc and magnesium from the seafood will help stimulate the growth of new brain cells.

• Want to slow down your brain’s aging process? Indulge with a cup of Turmeric Cinnamon Hot Chocolate, and the flavanols found in chocolate both increase blood flow to the brain and help fight age-related memory decline.

Featuring fifty stunning, full-color photographs, Eat Complete helps you pinpoint the nutrients missing from your diet and gives you tasty recipes to transform your health—and ultimately your life.

The Happiness Diet

For the first time in history, too much food is making us sick. It's all too apparent that the Modern American Diet (MAD) is expanding our waistlines; what's less obvious is that it's starving and shrinking our brains. Rates of obesity and depression have recently doubled, and while these epidemics are closely linked, few experts are connecting the dots for the average American.

Using the latest data from the rapidly changing fields of neuroscience and nutrition, The Happiness Dietshows that over the past several generations small, seemingly insignificant changes to our diet have stripped it of nutrients--like magnesium, vitamin B12, iron, and vitamin D, as well as some very special fats--that are essential for happy, well-balanced brains. These shifts also explain the overabundance of mood-destroying foods in the average American's diet and why they predispose most of us to excessive weight gain.

After a clear explanation of how we've all been led so far astray, The Happiness Diet empowers the reader with simple, straightforward solutions. Graham and Ramsey show you how to steer clear of this MAD way of life with foods to swear off, shopping tips, brain-building recipes, and other practical advice, and then remake your diet by doubling down on feel-good foods--even the all-American burger.
