None of our testing subjects was suffering from a classic psychiatric disorder, but all six hundred of them were interested in assessing their future mental health. Long before a mental breakdown takes place, there is a period of time during which minor emotional problems appear. If the underlying causes are not found and corrected, difficulties accumulate and intensify.
Each subject in our study received an annual examination, including an electrocardiogram, biochemical tests, and a detailed dietary analysis. Each participant also filled out questionnaires designed to evaluate his or her psychological status. The quizzes (the Cornell Medical Index Health Questionnaire and the Cornell Word Form 2) provided us with detailed information on each subject’s attitudes, moods and feelings, emotional and physical reactions.
At every visit, each subject gave us a complete record of everything eaten during the previous seven day period and filled out a food frequency questionnaire that revealed their eating patterns and habits.
We submitted all of the data to computer analysis, and received in return specific information concerning each subject’s daily intake of various foods, plus the amounts of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other known essential nutrients. By analyzing the data, we established relationships between eating habits and mental health.
From these relationships, we were able to determine the likelihood of future emotional problems developing.
We divided the subject population into two groups: Group A subjects were those with no emotional com plaints; Group B subjects reported one or more. On the surface these two groups were not particularly dissimilar; nutritionally, there were significant differences. Group A’s consumed distinctly higher amount of most
essential brain cell nutrients: 12 percent more iron, 21 percent more iodine, 14 percent more niacin, and so on down the list.
