Almost one in five Australians over 55 has suffered an anxiety disorder or depression at some stage. It’s the third most common serious illness in this age group, more common than heart disease, cancer and even type 2 diabetes. However, mental health issues are not inevitable and should not be ignored.

Enter Dr Georgia Ede, a global revolutionary in nutritional psychiatry with an approach grounded in science, simplicity, and practicality. Her new book, Change Your Diet, Change Your Mind, is a guided tour of the brain and the impact that what we eat has on our mental health. Dr Ede explains how our food choices directly influence brain function, mood, and overall well-being. By prioritising nutrition, she provides a simple solution to tackle mental health and the underlying cause of all metabolic diseases - insulin resistance, which now affects 1 in 3 Australians.

Our live webinar with Dr Georgia Ede and Dr Peter Brukner, Defeat Diabetes founder, was a fascinating exploration of common dietary misconceptions that affect mental health and filled with practical insights into adopting a brain-boosting diet. Get ready to change your diet, change your mind, and change your life!
