“The evidence now is pretty remarkable in terms of using vitamins and minerals of the treatment of mental illness” - Julia Rucklidge
Dr. Julia Rucklidge is nutrition researcher and Clinical Psychologist at the University of Canterbury.
For more than a decade, Dr. Rucklidge has been at the forefront of nutrition-mental health research, investigating the role of micronutrients in the expression of mental illnesses including ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, anxiety and more recently, stress and PTSD associated with the Canterbury earthquakes.
Her research provides compelling evidence for the critical role of nutrition in mental health and explains why this knowledge will revolutionise the way our society treats ‘mental illness’.
