Use the Rainbow Program in support groups, health food stores, hospital programs or counseling. It works well with both children and adults, and is designed to cross language and cultural barriers.

Healing Mental Illness

The analogy of mental health is like a puzzle which needs to be put together, whereupon sometimes pieces are missing and we cannot always see the big picture. 

Because some illnesses, including mental illness, use up larger than normal amounts of nutrients, it is a good idea to have a nutritionist assess your nutrient needs to see if supplementation is necessary. This can also apply to relieving side effects from prescribed medication.

Often a person's metabolism is only as effective as their weakest link. Whatever nutrient you are most deficient in will slow down the entire body until the imbalance is corrected. A nutritionist who specializes in mental health issues can help, particularly in overcoming obstacles such as metabolic syndrome, a common effect of prescribed psychiatric medication.

We have to learn to trust our bodies, even when it seems they are giving us symptoms and messages that contribute to our problems. Patients with metabolic syndrome will find feeling well and having enough energy to exercise quite a challenge. They also may eat the wrong foods, resulting in obesity. Anti-psychotic drugs can be furthered not hindered by good nutrition, and nutrition-rich foods with the right supplements will get you back on track.

How do we learn to build a bond of trust with our bodies so we can restore their balance?

The same way a counselor works to build a bond of trust with an anorexic person, for them to begin to heal.

The same way we have to work to build a bond of trust with children in order to educate them, and teach them to have healthy boundaries.
