Hear directly from world-leading experts in the fields of nutritional psychiatry and explore the latest research in the field of psycho-neuro-immunology. Find out how to holistically support patients with mood disorders and behavioural issues.

INTEGRATED TREATMENT PLANS

We now know that diet, nutrition, and gut health are critical determinants of mental health. It is becoming increasingly evident that dietary intervention and nutritional supplementation, as part of an integrated treatment plan, provide us with powerful tools for the prevention and management of mood and behavioural disorders. This represents an important paradigm shift in patient care, and one that natural healthcare practitioners are perfectly positioned to be a part of.

SYSTEMS BIOLOGY APPROACH

Science is rapidly uncovering key mechanisms that underlie the nutrition-related pathophysiology of mental illness, including inflammation, oxidative stress, toxicity, metabolic acidosis, nutrient deficiencies, and gut dysbiosis. All of these pathophysiological processes affect the gut-brain-immune axis, detrimentally altering patient mental and behavioural health. Using a holistic, systems biology approach ensures you can positively influence your patients psycho-neuro-immunological health.
