I met Sarah McKay (medical writer / neuroscientist / blogger) at last week’s trivia tournament – not only is she lovely, Sarah was also was a total boon for our team! I’ve read her blog on and off for a while now, so it was great to meet in person and chat about some of the fascinating work she does.

Sarah recently shared a great infographic on her site, which you can see below. Diet, digestion and lifestyle play an important role in so many body functions, including our mental and emotional health.
