FOOD=MOOD is a documentary project with a mission to shift the mental health paradigm in our country through functional medicine.
With millions of people suffering from depression and anxiety, our mission is to spread awareness about the importance of identifying the root cause before resorting to medications. Research continues to show that the right diet and lifestyle choices can restore balance, and heal the body and the mind with life-changing results.
The catalyst for this project is the story of Diane’s son, Alex, who suffered debilitating depression and suicidal thoughts for eight years before being introduced to a functional neurologist. His is a story of perseverance and healing, fortified by the love of his parents, whose discovery of his diary first revealed the secret he had been hiding like so many people stricken with mental health issues do.
This documentary will feature Alex’s story, as well as the real-time story of three people who are in the throes of mental health issues and looking to functional medicine and lifestyle change as their only way out.
We still have a lot to do to develop the full film and we need your help.
