Lifting Our Spirit with Nutrition

September 17, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm


Lifting Our Spirit with Nutrition will explore the world of nutrition and mental health and its many and sometimes surprising connections. This class will cover some basic anatomy and physiology of the gut and the brain to help you understand the connection between what we eat, what we don’t eat, and how it affects our emotions. In addition, we will delve into some of the hottest research topics and clinical applications in nutrition and mental health including the following:

Food Allergies and Brain Allergies

Fatty Acid Deficiency and Cholesterol

Gut Health and Microflora Imbalance (Good Bugs and Bad Bugs!)

The Second Brain also known as the Enteric Nervous System

Amino Acid Therapy and Neurotransmitters

Blood Sugar Imbalance and Carbohydrate Addiction

Vitamins, Minerals and Antioxidants for Mood

The Physiology of Mindful Eating

Plus two bonus topics: Pyroluria

MTHFr Gene Mutations

We hope you can join us for this 8-hour intensive designed for the nutritional or holistic practitioner of all kinds. Holistic Nutrition students are also welcome! You will walk away with a deeper knowledge of the food/mood connection and real protocols that you can put into use in your own practice today. This class may be eligible for 7 CE hours.
