Thank you for sending me 'Japanese Mind Guide'. I think my food life can be one of a barometer of my condition and 'Food and Mood' is very helpful for me to keep it in my mind.
Can food really affect my mental health?
How does food affect mood?
What's the psychological relationship?
How do I find out if food is affecting my mental health?
What should I look for in my diet?
Which foods affect which moods?
Which foods do I need to eat in order to feel well?
How can I go about changing my diet?
Can I get help?
Are nutritional supplements a good idea?
Can foods interact with medication?
What about allergies and allergy tests?
Why not buy the Guide as part of the Food and Mood self-help pack?
"This little booklet is an absolutely invaluable resource for survivors. I'm really impressed with how much you’ve managed to pack into the 16 pages. The Q&A format works really well and your measured approach and the way you’ve succinctly explained many complex things, such as caffeine addiction and food sensitivity, is so helpful. Experimenting just with varying what I eat and drink (while continuing with my medication) has led to a significant improvement in my health. Thank you so much!"

"An excellent resource for DIY Food and Mood workshop participants to take home as a summary of the session."
