Nutritional psychiatry is a growing discipline that focuses on the use of food and supplements to provide
these essential nutrients as part of an integrated or alternative treatment for mental health disorders.The link
between poor mental health has long been recognized by dietitians working in the field of psychiatry.
Recently, psychiatrists are now becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of using nutritional approaches
to mental health, calling for research into this new field of treatment.

It is now known that many mental health conditions are caused by inflammation in the brain which ultimatelycauses our brain cells to die. This inflammatory response starts in our gut and is associated with a lack of nutrients from our food such as magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, probiotics, vitamins and minerals that are all essential for the optimal function of our bodies.

This course explores the current research regarding nutritional psychiatry focusing on mood disorders,
depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism, microbiome-gut-brain axis, obesity, food addition and binge-eating disorder. Intermediate level.
This course can be attended either live onsite, live online or on-demand.
