Welcome to the podcast where we discuss groundbreaking theories and discoveries that change the way we view the world. Today, we're joined by Harvard Psychiatrist, Dr. Chris Palmer, who shares his groundbreaking Brain Energy Theory of Mental Illness.

In this episode, Dr. Palmer helps us understand the root cause of mental illness, the connection between mental and physical health, and how we can actually get better. He explains that mental illness is actually metabolic dysfunction in the brain and shines a light on the current state of mental illness and mental healthcare in America.

One of the biggest issues with the current mental healthcare system is that too many people are told they must sacrifice their physical health for mental stability. They're often prescribed medication with side effects and are left to hope that their mental health improves. Dr. Palmer believes that there's something wrong with this system and that the standard of care in the mental health field needs drastic improvement.

As an academic physician and psychiatric researcher at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Palmer has a focus on helping people suffering from treatment-resistant mental illnesses, including mood disorders, psychotic disorders, and personality disorders. He is the author of Brain Energy: A Revolutionary Breakthrough in Understanding Mental Health--and Improving Treatment for Anxiety, Depression, OCD, PTSD, and More.

Dr. Palmer's work is incredibly important, as far too many people do not get better with our current approaches to mental health treatment. If you or someone you know is struggling with mental illness, this episode is a must-listen. Join us as we dive into the Brain Energy Theory of Mental Illness and learn how we can improve our approach to mental healthcare.
