Functional psychiatry investigates the root causes of illness. Conventional psychiatry is dependant upon the use of medications to reduce the symptoms of mental illness. It assumes there is a neurotransmitter imbalance, and that medication will alleviate symptoms. Conversely, functional psychiatry, identifies and treats the underlying imbalances that are causing the symptoms in the first place.
This webinar will cover:
- The nutritional, digestive, metabolic, and inflammatory abnormalities shown to contribute to the pathogenesis of depression and anxiety.
- The biologic pathways and mechanisms through which these factors influence brain function.
- Evidence-based functional medicine approaches for testing to inform personalised medicine treatment.
