Integrative Therapies for the Treatment of ADHD

William Shaw, Ph.D. and The Great Plains Laboratory, Inc. sponsor "Integrative Therapies for the Treatment of ADHD", presented by Dr. James Greenblatt on July 20. 

The increasing global prevalence of ADHD diagnoses has been found to be directly correlated with an increased consumption of ADHD medication. In light of the worldwide rise of ADHD rates, recent reports also illustrate how conventional treatment approaches fail at correcting a poorly understood disorder. In this webinar, Dr. James Greenblatt will review how nutritional deficiencies, metabolic errors, and environmental exposures may exacerbate ADHD symptoms and impede treatment. Vitamin and mineral co-factors that are critical for the synthesis of serotonin and dopamine and receptor function will also be discussed. Following this presentation, participants will be able implement a comprehensive treatment plan with nutritional augmentation strategies to minimize side effects and enhance outcomes.
