Description

You may be missing something; and the research proves it!

A new way of looking at mental illness is emerging. Instead of thinking of emotional disorders as a brain disorder, we now know they are body-and-brain. The rising rates of mental illness may be partly explained by society’s shift to fast and convenience foods, and research is showing how much nutrition, and ultimately inflammation, affects our emotional health. The effect is so strong that many researchers now look at depression primarily as an inflammatory illness. Anxiety, ADHD, and autism all show clear evidence that food plays a key role.

This course explains the research behind nutrition and mental health and equips you with the practical tools and interventions to apply immediately to improve the overall health of your client.
