AbstractNutrition is considered a vital tool in the overall health and wellness of any population but especially in populations that experience high amounts of physical stress- such as in the military. Additionally, it has been long suspected that physical health and wellness has significant impacts on mental health. Therefore it stands to be seen that by improving one’s overall health and wellness through nutrition, significant improvements could be made when looking at mental health disorders such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that so commonly plagues our military members. The goal of this research project was to look into not only how the concepts of nutrition and PTSD overlap but also what can be done with that information to improve quality of life for individuals who have served our nation.
