ABOUT DR. GEORGIA EDE, MD
Dr. Ede first became interested in nutrition five years ago, after discovering a new way of eating that completely reversed a number of perplexing health problems, including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and IBS. This experience led her on a quest to understand why the unorthodox diet that restored her own health is so different from the diet we are taught is healthy.
Dr. Ede grew up in Massachusetts and received her B.A. in Biology from Carleton College in Minnesota. She then spent seven years as a research assistant in the fields of biochemistry, diabetes, and wound healing in the U.S. and in Germany before earning her M.D. from The University of Vermont College of Medicine.
After completing her residency in adult psychiatry at Harvard University’s Cambridge Hospital, she established a large, community-based general adult psychiatry practice on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where she also provided consultation-liaison services to Falmouth Hospital.
In 2007, Dr. Ede returned to Cambridge to accept a position as staff psychiatrist at Harvard University Health Services. In addition to practicing psychopharmacology, she is the first and only physician at the service to offer nutrition consultations to those interested in an alternative to psychiatric medications. From 2008 to 2010 she also served as a staff psychiatrist and nutrition consultant to The Hallowell Center, which has a reputation for excellence in the care of people with attention disorders and related conditions.
In recent years, Dr. Ede has presented a variety of novel lectures about nutrition and health to medical conferences at Harvard and elsewhere around the country. She also maintains a nutrition-based private practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
At 48 years old, despite a strong family history of obesity, type II diabetes, high cholesterol, migraine headaches, anxiety disorders and ADHD, she has no health problems and takes no medications. She is the founder of DiagnosisDiet.com, a website dedicated to exploring the connection between food chemistry and health.
