Existing research demonstrates that obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a multifactorial condition that is influenced by genetics and environmental risk factors. First-line treatment of OCD is typically a combination of an antidepressant medication and cognitive behavioral therapy. However, SSRI treatments for OCD yields benefit to approximately only 40-60% of patients and has been found to cause adverse side effects. There has been an emerging interest in the use of nutritional and plant-based interventions to treat OCD, including N-acetylcysteine, inositol, and probiotics. This webinar will discuss the research evaluating its clinical utility, and how to incorporate adjuvant therapies to minimize medication side effects while enhancing treatment outcomes.
Mycotoxins from mold are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. They are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, homes, vehicles, and foodstuffs. A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure. Fungi are able to grow on almost any surface, especially if the environment is warm and wet. These fungi then release mycotoxins into the environment causing symptoms of many different chronic diseases. Diseases and symptoms linked to mycotoxin exposure include fever, pneumonia-like symptoms, heart disease, rheumatic disease, asthma, sinusitis, cancer, memory loss, vision loss, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, anxiety, and liver damage.
