Toxins produced by microbial species have a direct effect on the brain but can also produce indirect effects on neurotransmitter synthesis and cause neuro-inflammation. This webinar will focus on the mechanism of action that Candida and Clostridia have on the brain as well as the treatment options that are most likely to succeed.
Methylation is a topic of great interest in autism, mental health disorders and other chronic health problems. Most of the attention is focused on MTHFR C667T polymorphisms, but there are other biochemical imbalances linked to methylation, such as that with serotonin, that can adversely affect neurochemistry. This lecture will explore these areas as they relate to various health conditions.
The use of herbs in healing traditions was prevalent during ancient times across several cultures. Scientists are now revisiting the use of plant-based herbs in the treatment of illnesses such as depression, where it has been shown to exhibit positive effects on neurochemistry. Some research has demonstrated the ability of botanicals to effectively augment treatment responses in depressed patients with unresolved symptoms. In this webinar, Dr. James Greenblatt will review the indications and side effect profile of commonly used botanicals in the treatment of depression including St. John’s wort, Rhodiola rosea, and curcumin. Following this presentation, participants will gain a better understanding of how to incorporate botanicals as part of an integrative approach.
