Everyone Should Know
Date: Tuesday December 29, 2020
Time: 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm MST
Location: Online (Zoom)
Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, insomnia, substance cravings? Poor focus, ADD, OCD, etc? Your symptoms may be emotional in origin – but they may also be physiological. And if they are, our conventional medical system doesn’t generally have much to offer aside from a pill or two. Enter mental health nutrition: a powerful and highly effective approach that has been gaining traction in recent decades. Mental health nutrition is the art and science of using nutrition and supplements to balance and stabilize biochemistry and reduce or eliminate mental health symptoms. Join this 90 minute webinar to explore the connection between the Standard American Diet, gut function and mental health—and to learn some simple, highly effective interventions that you can implement in your life immediately.

You love to help others and care deeply about your family, friends, community, clients. But sometimes, despite your best attempts, the people in your world remain mired in depression or anxiety, or continue to struggle with insomnia or substance cravings. At that point you suspect a biochemical rather than emotional cause, and refer them to a great psychiatrist who you trust, but you’d really like to have other options. You may not even resonate with the idea of “band-aiding” symptoms with a pill rather than identifying and treating the root cause, but you don’t know what else to do. You’re curious about natural / holistic methods of healing, but your knowledge of these is limited to articles you’ve read here and there on St. John’s Wort or how inflammation is connected to mood. You’re busy and not necessarily a “science person”, so the thought of seeking out and studying this information may never have even crossed your mind.
Mental Health Nutrition is the art and science of using supplements and nutrition to stabilize biochemistry and reduce or eliminate mental health symptoms, including depression, anxiety, insomnia, ADD, ADHD, OCD, bipolar, substance cravings, and more. My upcoming online five week course, Mental Health Nutrition: Foundations, is a simple, non-intimidating, and highly effective approach to stabilizing biochemistry using nutrition and supplements (and no, it’s not about eating more salads!). While mental health nutrition can be an infinitely complex topic, this course will cover the ground-level basics – perfect for the busy individual who wants to learn the basic interventions that also provide massive bang for your buck. Having provided mental health nutrition for nearly 300 clients over the years, I can say that this process is highly rewarding both to facilitate and observe – while change in therapy can take months or years, someone’s biochemistry can shift dramatically in a matter of minutes. Whether you’ll put your new knowledge to use creating information-rich and user-friendly handouts for your community, helping to heal your daughter’s anxiety and your partner’s insomnia via supplements and blood sugar stabilization, or teaching clients how to stabilize their biochemistry and achieve rapid symptom relief, this brief course will give you potent tools for helping those in your world to feel better quickly and naturally.
The first hour of each class is dedicated to lecture, while the final 30 minutes will allow for discussion, Q&A, and mini case studies.
