About the Author
Leslie Korn, PhD, is a clinician specializing in mental health nutrition and integrative medicine. A core faculty member of Capella University's Mental Health Counseling Program, she served as a Fulbright scholar on traditional medicine, a Clinical Fellow at Harvard Medical School, and a National
Institutes of Health-funded research scientist in mind/body medicine. In 1975, she founded the Center for Traditional Medicine, a public health clinic in rural indigenous Mexico that she directed for over 25 years. Author of six books, she teaches and consults internationally for mental health professionals and tribal communities.
Leslie Korn's book is a wealth of information for 'at home' strategies to implement cleaner, healthier food choices. Food can be either medicine or toxin. Her approach aids in creating a family-friendly cooking environment with simple, clear lists to reduce toxic foods and retool the pantry. These changes support reduction of symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, and cognitive impairment. The key is her personalized approach: finding the 'right fuel for you!' Sharing her wisdom in nutrition, spices, and foods, recipes are included throughout to strengthen the use of home cooking.--Judith E. Pentz, MD, Integrative and Holistic Psychiatrist
An easy-to-follow guide through the maze of modern day food options. . . . A helpful resource for learning how to make sensible lifestyle changes that include a nutritious diet and healthful eating habits to enhance wellness.-- "The Milton H. Erickson Newsletter"
If food is medicine, what do we eat to heal? Beyond conventional nutrition dogma, Leslie Korn's sophisticated, researched, and truly holistic perspective is urgently needed. There are few resources that I can confidently point to for life-changing support when it comes to healing mood and cognition. I couldn't be more thrilled to add The Good Mood Kitchen to the top of my list.--Kelley Brogan, MD, Holistic Women's Health Psychiatrist, author of A Mind of Your Own
Dr. Korn's new book combines current nutrition science with practical wisdom about food choices that address depressed mood and anxiety at their root causes. There is no more urgent need in mental healthcare than sound nutritional advice. The Good Mood Kitchen will change the way mental health providers recommend food for health and healing, and is destined to become a classic.--James Lake, MD, author of Textbook of Integrative Mental Health Care. Founding Chair, American Psychiatric Association Caucus on Complementary & Alternative Medicine
