Mental Health Professionals THINK Nutrition Is YOUR Responsibility

I presume sales in the impacted region have fallen over 20 percent in August and there has been no improvement in the trend, Cox said. He estimates that countries affected by the recall account for about 45 percent of Danones baby-nutrition sales, or about 10 percent of total revenue . Danone shares fell 1.6 percent to 56.34 euros at 10:41 a.m. in Paris trading. The stock has gained 13 percent this year, valuing the company at 35.6 billion euros ($47.2 billion).

Nutrition |nutrition| n(y)otriSHn noun: the process of providing or obtaining the food necessary for health and growth.* Responsibility |responsibility| rispansbilte noun: the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone.* In Richard Zwolinski very well researched and thought-provoking post Why A New Study About Diet And Mental Health Is Important he said something that struck me sideways; but honestly true: Mental health professionals do not have to be experts in nutrition or exercise or other therapies. But we do have to know when to refer our clients to experts in other fields for evaluation and/or treatment. We must take the whole person into account. Thinking about this from the receiving side of services I am a bit worried. While I do not expect all mental health professionals to be nutrition experts, I would think, no I would hope that professionals had a good handle on nutrition. Especially if they are prescribing me medications that are known for huge weight gain. I know Richard encourages therapy patients to stay emotionally, physically, and spiritually healthy and he understands the balance between the mind and body and not wasting time. SEE: Therapy Revolution: Find Help, Get Better, and Move On Without Wasting Time or Money In the end, our nutrition is our own responsibility even though when I am depressed or in the grasp of a mood swing the last thing Im thinking about is my nutrition. In fact, the food Im eating is most likely feeding and fueling the mood or depression. When I go to my behavioral health care provider, the first things they do is take my vitals, my weight, plus oxygen, blood pressure then type a few things and ask a few more questions. Then I have 15 minutes with my manager who takes up most of the time brow beating me about my weight-gain and I need to lose weight. I even had one doctor pressure me into getting information for by-pass surgery. Then Im maybe given a prescription for selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), ricyclics, tetracyclics, or monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) all with side-effect some weight gain or triggering an insatiable appetite. What I think needs to be done, is the mixing of mental health and nutrition taking the whole person into account as Richard Zwolinski says. Im sure that is available for many with good to moderate insurance, but Im talking about focusing on us financially poor and clinically diagnosed consumers that, like me really have a hard time eating right or lack the knowledge to know how to make a nutritious meal Three Hotdogs with chili cheese and 1/2 Pizza with 2 fries and 4 sodas and box of Nabiscos Nutter Buttersmay not make the list of nutritious meal.
