The Nutritank Podcast

20-11-2020 • 1 hr 40 mins

**DISCLAIMER: Please note that the views of our podcast guests may not always align with the views of Nutritank** This week, we bring you the second instalment of our Food and Mood series, zooming in on how the relationship between food and mood is utilised within clinical practice in the UK. This week we have two esteemed psychiatrists: Dr Pratima Singh, community and adult psychiatrist who strongly advocates for a holistic approach and intensive lifestyle interventions to address the burden of mental health morbidity and Dr Kirsty Alderton, practising psychiatrist with a wide range of experience including perinatal mental health, eating disorders and liason psychiatry. Kirsty also promotes the importance of mind-body medicine and is keen to implement a more integrated approach into mainstream mental health services We discuss how Kirsty and Pratima became interested in nutrition and lifestyle interventions in psychiatry and how this can be implemented through adaptation of the environment. For example, we discuss how a psychiatric inpatient ward could be altered to promote a more healing environment by having gym equipment or running food demonstration workshops. Pratima tells us about a food demonstration workshop at an intensive care psychiatric ward she worked on, teaching patients how to make an omelette or a smoothie and then sitting down to eat it altogether. How cool is that?! We also discuss how to approach conversations with patients regarding nutrition and lifestyle, and the importance of taking sociocultural factors into consideration, when making recommendations. These two wonderful guests shed light on how they implement nutrition and lifestyle interventions into their clinical practice and what the future may hold, regarding the field of nutritional psychiatry research. We hope that you learn and enjoy!
