The part of the brain most heavily associated with mental health, memory, emotion, and mood is called the hippocampus - the biological name for the seahorse. It is the unusual seahorse-like shape of the hippocampus that has led to its evocative name. Just as the seahorse charms the depths of oceans, our own hippocampus, when supported and nurtured, can help enchant our own lives. Worryingly, there are an increasing number of scientific papers linking problems with the hippocampus to depression, in particular, the shrinking or failure to regrow this part of the brain after prolonged stress. Depression, anxiety, and mood disorders are often seen as entirely psychological in cause. However, more and more research is highlighting that chronic health issues, poor diet, and lifestyle choices can, and will, negatively impact our vulnerable hippocampus, and consequently, our mental health.Personalized nutritionist Ray Griffiths examines how we can modify our dietary and lifestyle choices to nourish our brain and hippocampus. These choices can help to cushion us from the harm we may encounter as we navigate the challenges of modern everyday life. This nourishment is absolutely vital, as every day, our hippocampus can potentially regrow 700 brand new neurons, but it needs a huge amount of assistance to do so. Nourishment for the hippocampus can come from not just diet but also from balanced gut bacteria, social connection, exercise, an outdoors environment, music, and dance. Learning how to support your brain health begins with what you eat. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marston York. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/166841/bk_acx0_166841_sample.mp3.

A stark and lyrical account of the psyche in crisis from the author of KithTristimania tells the story of a devastating year-long episode of manic depression, culminating in a long solo pilgrimage across Spain. Recording the experience of mania as has rarely been done before, Jay Griffiths shows how the condition is at once terrifying and also profoundly creative, both tricking and treating the psyche. An intimate and raw journey, Tristimania illuminates something of the universal human spirit.
As featured in The Sunday Times, The Daily Telegraph, the Evening Standard, Daily Mail (online), BBC Five Live, Metro, TES Our body's clocks make the difference between happiness and depression, health and illness, and even life and death. The brilliant scientist Paul Kelley, along with renowned journalist Sian Griffiths, makes a compelling case for all organisations to allow people to work and study the hours that suit their personal circadian rhythms. That way, they argue, we would all be more productive and a great deal of ill health would be avoided.
