Food for Life: Food as Medicine

Do you believe that the food you eat can improve your body and your mind? Dr. Levitt does and encourages her patients to focus on quality proteins, fruits and vegetables that are the best natural sources of the vitamins and minerals we need to stay healthy and fend off disease later in life.

To help in that effort, here is a list of the best brain food as outlined by one of her go-to sources for the brain-food connection, Dr. David Perlmutter. (Of course organic and responsibly sourced versions are suggested.)

Learn more here about how each of these foods can protect and nurture our brains. (And stay tuned for more on this issue. Dr. Levitt will be attending a medical conference on gut health later this month.)
