Friday, April 20 | 3:45 - 5:15 p.m. | Breakout Session #2
A Flow-Chart Approach to Addressing Complex Mental Health Challenges
In this presentation you will be taken through a step-by-step process of identifying the primary and secondary drivers of complex emotional and behavioral disorders and addressing them using nutraceuticals and dietary approaches. Symptom questionnaires and labs which your clients can order directly without a medical doctor, will be demonstrated, and complex cases will be presented. The tenets of Functional Medicine will provide the underlying theoretical approach to these issues, and you will be given a flow-chart which you can start using immediately with your clients.
