Psychiatry & Psychotherapy Podcast


Mar 23, 2018

Western society faces is the most unhealthy we’ve ever been. It’s reached epidemic proportions: depression, anxiety, poor focus and sensorium issues, chronic stress, and diseases of chronic stress (like diabetes). The solution is simple—exercise and healthy eating.

In this episode, I will be going through 17 studies on how exercise influences and improves these factors. I will cover how it works, and how to develop an exercise program from the perspective of a doctor, not just for body sculpting.  

Some things I am covering:

Strength training decreases depression

Strength training increases cognitive function

Fitness decreases risk of dementia

Exercise increases BDNF

Strength training and exercise in treatment for diabetes
