Psychoneuro-nutritional medicine: an advancing paradigm

Altern Ther Health Med. 1995 May;1(2):22-7.


Recent research has led to the evolution of an important clinical relationship among psychology, neurobiochemistry, and nutrition. The result has been the development of the multidisciplinary field of psychoneuro-nutritional medicine. The successful application of this medical model to mental health problems ranging from behavior disorders in children to cognitive/emotional disorders in adults has opened the door to new lower-technology, cost-effective approaches to improving functional neurobiochemistry. This review describes the psychoneuro-nutritional medicine model and its application to a variety of biobehaviorally related health problems.
