There is so much to be anxious about these days, including what to eat. But did you know that there is a way of eating that can actually help reduce the level of anxiety you experience on a day-to-day basis? In this week’s podcast, I discuss the anti-anxiety diet with RD Alie Miller, how you can balance your hormones and reset your adrenals, and how to heal the brain and body by changing what you eat! We also discuss the best way for women to do keto, and how probiotics are nature's prozac!


Allie is an integrative functional medicine practitioner and bestselling author. She focuses on functional medicine, that is looking at the body from a holistic standpoint and helping people achieve and maintain optimal mental and physical health.
