Stress and Nutritional Approches to Mental Health

"Let Food be thy Medicine" - Hippocrates. The foods we eat nourish both our bodies and our brains. The brain however has the first claim on the nutrients. Many ancient cultures understood that the foods we eat have an impact on our mental states of mind. Modern medicine is slowly catching up to this truth. In addition to exercise, meditation and other stress reduction methods, can we make nutritional changes to manage anxiety, depression, insomnia, stress etc?
