The surprisingly dramatic role of nutrition in mental health | Julia Rucklidge | TEDxChristchurch
NOTE FROM TED: Please consult with a mental health professional and do not look to this talk for medical advice as the intersection of mental health and nutrition is still an emerging field of study. We've flagged this talk for falling outside TEDx's curatorial guidelines because it oversimplifies interpretations of legitimate studies. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In this critically important talk, clinical psychologist Julia Rucklidge explores a range of scientific research, including her own, showing the significant role played by nutrition in mental health or illness. Julia J Rucklidge, PhD is a Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. Originally from Toronto, she did her training in neurobiology (McGill) and Clinical Psychology (University of Calgary). Her interests in nutrition and mental illness grew out of her own research showing poor outcomes for children with significant psychiatric illness despite receiving conventional treatments for their conditions. For the last 6 years, she has been investigating the role of micronutrients in the expression of mental illness, specifically ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, anxiety and more recently, stress and PTSD associated with the Canterbury earthquakes. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
Biochemical Approach to Schizophrenia - Dr Abram Hoffer
Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD (1917-2009), Orthomolecular Medicine, (with Double Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Linus Pauling) was a world-renowned Canadian doctor and biochemist that treated over five thousands of patients with mental disorders (including schizophrenia, drug/alcohol addiction, psychosis) through better nutrition , micronutrients, and megavitamin therapy. Dr. Abram Hoffer, a pioneer of holistic nutritional/vitamin therapy, died in May 2009 at the age of 91. For over 50 years, Dr. Abram Hoffer personally took 4,500 mg (4.5 grams) of Niacin (Vitamin B-3) along with other supplements. Dr Abram Hoffer was a prolific researcher and writer, wrote over 30 books and 600 peer-reviewed medical journal articles (most of which were ignored by mainstream medicine) and was productive until 2 weeks prior to his death (age 91). Mary MacIsaac (1893-2006): Oldest Person in Canada , friend of Dr. Abram Hoffer Oldest human in Canada, Canadian Supercentenarian, Mary MacIsaac (27 December 1893 - 10 March 2006) was a friend of Dr. Abram Hoffer . Ms. Mary MacIsaac, Canadian's oldest person, age 112, died on March 10, 2006. Mary MacIsaac was Canada's oldest person and 19th-oldest in the world. But Mary MacIsaac differed significantly from the others, for Ms. MacIsaac had been taking niacin for forty years before she died. Ms. Mary MacIsaac had cross-country skied until 110 and was photographed playing a piano duet with her great-grandson just before she died. Ms. MacIsaac was weaker, but her mind was clear when she died after a brief illness. Mary MacIsaac credited the Niacin and perhaps she was correct, because Niacin (vitamin B-3) does have remarkable anti-aging and life-extending properties, according to Dr. Abram Hoffer. Dr. Abram Hoffer with AA Founder of AA (Alcoholics Anonymous), "Bill W" (Bill Wilson) was a friend of Dr. Abram Hoffer, and followed Abram Hoffer's program for many years . "Bill W" (Bill Wilson) took 3000 mg of Vitamin B3 (Niacin) and 3000 mg of Vitamin C daily.

It might take 3 to 4 weeks to see results. Abram Hoffer's FOOD RECOMMENDATION: Eat whole foods. No sugar, white flours, junk foods. Dr. Abram Hoffer advocated no-sugar, no-flour, a low carbohydrate “junk food-free” or “paleolithic” diet, and later became convinced that certain foods and artificial food additives (artificial food coloring, artificial food preservative) could have important adverse cognitive effects in specific psychotic patients.

Micronutrient Deficiencies (Why Nutrition Matters, Part A)
In this video, we will discuss common micronutrient deficiencies to illustrate why nutrient-rich foods should be a key component of a healthy diet. Subscribe for more content like this: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAUvJ3V-lOqWvgU6mYJe7Fw?sub_confirmation=1 Content about nutrition and health in books, magazines, or on the internet often emphasizes all of the foods that we should not eat because they have some kind of negative health impact. And sure, some foods or food components can have negative health effects. Less often emphasized is the foundation of healthy eating: that we should choose to eat nourishing, nutrient-rich foods in order to prevent a deficiency in any of the essential vitamins, minerals, and trace elements our bodies need. Micronutrient deficiencies can have devastating consequences, and in this video, we will discuss four examples that affect billions of people around the world. - TIP JAR: SUPPORT MY EFFORTS TO CREATE THIS FREE CONTENT - https://nourishedbyscience.ck.page/products/tip-jar - TIMESTAMPS - 00:00 Introduction 00:17 The importance of micronutrient-rich foods 02:49 Calcium deficiency and osteoporosis 12:33 Vitamin A deficiency and vision loss 14:21 Iodine deficiency and thyroid disease 16:21 Iron deficiency and anemia 18:37 Conclusion: eat nutrient-rich foods! - LINKS - Nourished by Science Online: Homepage: https://www.nourishedbyscience.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/NourishedbySci Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Nourished-by-Science-590314798319620 - Blog post associated with this video - https://wp.me/p9mwih-1bm International Osteoporosis Foundation: https://www.osteoporosis.foundation National Institutes of Health fact sheet about calcium: https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Calcium-HealthProfessional/ - REFERENCES - https://www.nap.edu/catalog/10872/dietary-reference-intakes-guiding-principles-for-nutrition-labeling-and-fortification https://www.nap.edu/catalog/25981/harmonizing-the-process-for-establishing-nutrient-reference-values-a-tool https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Calcium-HealthProfessional/ https://www.nap.edu/catalog/24828/guiding-principles-for-developing-dietary-reference-intakes-based-on-chronic-disease https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29026938/ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24771492/ https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2783043#:~:text=We%20found%20a%20high%20prevalence,similar%20among%20men%20and%20women. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34657598/ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/28399168/ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33775269/ https://www.aao.org/topic-detail/vitamin-deficiency--subsaharan-africa https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/14654340/ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30595864/ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34736513/ - DISCLOSURES AND CONFLICT OF INTEREST POLICY - https://nourishedbyscience.com/disclosures/ - DISCLAIMER - The content of this video, this YouTube channel in general, and our blog at www.nourishedbyscience.com is for informational purposes only.
