Learning Objectives:

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Describe the difference between Functional and Western Medicine.
  • Explain how macronutrients and micronutrients impact mental health.
  • Define “leaky gut” and its impact on mental health.
  • List the key nutrients that support the function of both the brain and the gut, the “second brain.”
  • Discuss the impact of toxins, inflammation, and poor nutrition on mental health.
  • Identify specific elimination diets that can support gut and mental health.
  • Describe the impact of sugar and ultra-processed food on mental health.
  • Demonstrate how to support clients with basic food planning.
  • Describe the impact that exercise and sleep have on mental health.

Workshop Description:

Have you ever wondered if what your clients eat might impact their behavior? Especially if you know they live on fast food and ultra-processed convenience foods? Did you know there is an entire field addressing this issue called Nutrition Psychiatry? Unfortunately, most of us weren’t taught this information in our graduate programs, so where do we start? What about exercise and sleep? Is this even in our scope of practice?

In this workshop, you will learn how various nutrients impact mental health. We will explore the connection between the gut and the brain and how your client’s physiology and individual biology affect their mental health. You will identify other factors that change your clients’ health through inflammation and exposure to toxins. You will come to understand the connection between the brain and the body and what you can do to educate your clients and, in doing so, improve their overall health and your clinical interventions.
