Mental Health with Integrative Psychiatry

Mental Health – Approaching through Integrative Psychiatry

Mental health is an integral part of health. Without mental health, there is no health.

Mental Health NutritionAlong those lines, we all know we should be eating right, exercising, making lifestyle choices that are responsible for good health. However, those are choices usually associated with physical health, not mental health.

Dr. Greenblatt discusses with us stress, depression, schizophrenia, and yes, the what seems to be, a recent epidemic of suicides. Did you know that most people who commit suicide had sought  health treatment in the last 30 days before the suicide?

Flu Prevention Bryce Wylde: No Flu For You!

Flu Prevention with the “No Flu For You” Formula

Flu PreventionTis the season…..Flu prevention should be at the top of our minds.

Flu costs the U.S. approximately $10.4 billion  in direct costs for hospitalizations and outpatient visits for adults.


2016: In the US,  the flu accounted for $5.8 billion in other healthcare and lost productivity costs. It is key for companies to promote flu prevention in the workplace.

2011:  Canadian workers took an average of 9.3 sick days. Although nine days may not seem like a lot, when you do the math based on salary cost for lost time, those absences equal approximately $16.6 Billion, not including the price of replacement workers.

The flu can be deadly. Flu prevention should be a priority. Australia gives us a warning of what to expect from flu season. This year, Australia had a very tough flu season. Flu prevention needs to be a priority. The good news is…..flu prevention is very consistent with general good health principles, and the prevention of chronic disease.

From Bryce to you……the No Flu for You Soup…

Eating or drinking too much sugar or refined foods curbs immune system cells that attack viruses and bacteria. This effect lasts for many hours after downing a couple of sugary drinks. One powerful solution is to eat soup! Research shows that astragalus root (a Chinese herb used to ward off flu), has powerful immune-enhancing properties. The sliced, dried root is available in specialty health food stores, Chinese grocery, and herb stores. It adds a pleasant, sweet taste when simmered in soups. Shiitake mushrooms, onions, and turmeric spice also naturally boost immunity. Garlic and onions have natural and powerful anti-viral and antibiotic effects; ginger and turmeric, a natural anti-inflammatory agent. Replace traditional pasta noodles which are immune suppressing with black bean or shirataki noodles which are carb free!

No Flu For You Soup (Serves 8-10)

1 tblsp extra virgin olive oil

2 lg spanish onions, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced

1/4 tsp tumeric powder

2 cups shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced

2 lg carrots, thinly sliced

2 pieces astragalus root, either dried or freshly choped into large cubes (roughly 1×1 inch)

8 cups organic mushroom or chicken stock

2 tbsp tamari

2 cups broccoli florets

1/2 cups scallions, diced

1/2 cup chives, diced

1 pack Black bean or Shiritake noodles

Instructions: Place oil in a soup pot on medium heat and add onions, garlic, ginger, and tumeric powder and sauté for about 5 mins or until translucent. Add mushrooms, carrots, broccoli, astragalus root, choice of stock and an additional 3 cups water. Bring to a full boil then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the tamari and adjust salt to taste. Let cool for 30mins. Remove the astragalus root pieces. Garnish with scallions and chives and serve while hot.
