m”Food is medicine,” says neurologist Christof Kessler.
Time and time again we set ourselves the goal of living healthier – and eating better. The neurologist Christof Kessler explains how this works and why nutrition even has an effect on the psyche.
Can you be healthy – and enjoy at the same time?
I believe enjoyment is also a part of physical and mental well-being and happiness. Happiness is closely related to our lifestyle. What we do, what social contacts we have, whether we do sports and what we eat.
Is the effect of food really that big?
Many factors are required to be satisfied: a genetic factor, social contacts, a meaningful task. But almost the most important thing is the diet. In the brain, the cells communicate with each other as a network and use messenger substances to do so. These are proteins that are constantly being reproduced. We determine the concentration and amount of these messenger substances by what we eat. That is why we can also determine our mental state through our diet. As a neurologist, I have investigated how neurological diseases such as dementia, depression and headaches can be influenced through targeted nutrition. Not prevent or cure, but influence. The result was a book about food as medicine.
