Professor Julia Rucklidge has been researching the link between diet, nutrients and mental health and in this interview we talk about that work.  We also discuss her childhood and background growing up in Canada, how she got into this field, what the research is actually showing and what it was like to give a TEDx talk that has almost a million views.

From the website: "The aim of our research group is to find nutritional interventions that are effective in treating psychiatric/psychological illness. At our lab, we independently test new, groundbreaking multinutrient formulae, probiotics and other natural, beneficial substances. We run studies on many different psychological disorders, including ADHD (in both adults and children), addictions, depression and stress. We use all kinds of different trial designs to test these products, including multiple baseline designs, open label, and the ‘gold standard’ of clinical testing, the randomised, placebo-controlled trial (RCT). We are not employed by the manufacturers of these products; we have no interest in getting a good result for them. All we’re interested in is finding real treatments that work, for the good of people affected by psychological illnesses."
