Dr. Jay Lombard speaks with Joyce about the need for better ways to evaluate a person’s mental state and stability, and to determine what drugs or nutritional elements might be helpful for this particular individual. Good nutrition is essential to brain health. Individuals may have subtle deficiencies of essential minerals. There are thousands of drugs – which one is most likely to benefit this person?

Dr. Lombard, a board certified neurologist, has published several books on the role of nutrition and the brain and has lectured extensively on this topic.

The chief scientific officer of Genomind, Dr. Jay Lombard, says psychiatry needs objective biomarkers for diagnosis, and that solutions are on the way thanks to genetics, proteomics and epigenics.
