From the book Gut and Psychology Syndrome:
"Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride set up The Cambridge Nutrition Clinic in 1998. As a parent of a child fully recovered from a severe learning disability, she was acutely aware of the difficulties facing other parents like her, and she has devoted much of her time to helping thses families. She realised that nutrition played a critical role in helping children and adults to overcome their disabilities, and has pioneered the use of probiotics in this field...
"She believes that the link between physical and mental health, the food and drink that we take, and the condition of our digestive system is absolute, and the results of her workhave supported her position on this subject."
