Description

The Mind-Body Connection: Functional Nutrition and Mental Health

Food is the fuel that our brains and bodies run on and unfortunately, many clients do not make the connection between skipping meals or eating poorly and their mood swings, brain fog, lack of energy, procrastination, or inability to focus. Additionally, many clients are looking for alternatives to medication or at least a way to modify how much medication they take.

 

Attend this seminar to explore how physical health impacts brain and behavior, and how integrative and functional medicine applies to psychotherapy and clinical practice. Learn simple steps to uncover nutritional deficiencies, evaluate the impact of medication, and how to implement lifestyle changes for the most powerful ways to leverage time with clients to improve clinical outcomes.
