This week, a look at three audiobooks that talk about using food or nutrition as a way to deal with an mental health or anxiety condition.
There are a lot of resources when it comes to finding materials about treating the various forms of anxiety. Finding authoritative and viable resources is a lot more difficult.
Then there are books with ok content but with poor or non-engaged readers. I can't recommend those books.
So, the books that appear in this episode had to pass through the following process:
- There is both a physical book and audiobook available.
- The author has the required training or qualification in order to write the book.
- And just like if I was standing in a library or bookstore, there is an opportunity to read or get a sense of the content or philosophy regarding the materials.
In housekeeping news, last time I mentioned that the podcast has been picked up by Amazon Music & Podcast. I went to check it out, there are problems. There is no show description.
There are only about 10 episodes listed. I have over 200 and they are in an unfathomable random order. At the time of this recording other podcasting folks are having issues as well. It is a new service and I hope that get it fixed quickly.
