Are You Who You Think You Are?: Nutrition, the Brain and the Self

I recently did some Functional Medicine tests on myself and ended up learning a few things which caused me to completely re-conceptualise my understanding of myself.  This wasn't about understanding my body in a different way, but rather about seeing my actions, behaviours and choices in an entirely different light once I...

However, sometimes there’s an entirely healthy and necessary reason behind...
