Functional & Integrative Medicine for ADHD Course Breakdown

This three-module accredited course introduces Dr. Greenblatt’s breakthrough Plus/Minus treatment plan for ADHD patients, as outlined in his bestselling book, Finally Focused. This Plus/Minus plan serves as the cornerstone for this training, and teaches you how to identify imbalances in the brain, assess and treat via lab testing, and correct deficiencies and excesses through nutritional supplementation and augmentation. You’ll gain specific treatment strategies and a solid roadmap for restoring patient attention, minimizing hyperactivity, and eliminating medication side effects. Course accredited for 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Module 1: Redefining the Treatment Model for ADHD

In the first module, you’ll learn a neurobiological model of ADHD that relies on discovering and treating nutritional deficiencies, genetics, and environmental factors, primarily as they relate to lead or copper exposure. You’ll gain an extensive biological understanding of why the ADHD child needs individualized treatment to correct the unique nutritional imbalances that contribute to ADHD symptoms.

Module 2: The Role of Diet in ADHD – Macronutrients

In module 2, you’ll learn about the role of macronutrients—lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates—in the presentation of ADHD symptoms, along with the factors contributing to altered glucose metabolism that are commonly observed in ADHD populations. Dr. Greenblatt will also examine the roles of amino acids and vitamin D, therapeutic applications of oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), and a patient’s genetic profile in the absorption of particular lipids.

Module 3: The Role of Diet in ADHD – Micronutrients

Module 3 examines micronutrients and provides orthomolecular strategies for treating ADHD—copper/zinc balance, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, and lithium. Guidelines for testing, recommendations for supplementation and augmentation, and specific clinical pearls will be provided, with an emphasis on the practical ramifications of biochemical individuality in the treatment of this complex disorder. We conclude our course with “Beyond Biochemistry,” a discussion on the importance of patient collaboration, and listening more attentively to our patients, rather than merely directing them.

Each discussion is led with practical application in mind, focusing on one clinical concept and ensuring that the knowledge you gain can be immediately implemented with your patients. To help you apply the lessons in practice, the final three supervision sessions are opportunities for you to bring complex cases to Dr. Greenblatt and faculty, and discuss specific patient treatment.

Supervisions typically take place at 8pm EST via Zoom. Attendance is encouraged but not required, and all supervisions are recorded for later viewing.

“What’s amazing about the ADHD Intensive is that in a few short months, I got to learn from over 30 years of Dr. Greenblatt’s research, experience, and passion. It was a privilege to take this course, as Dr. Greenblatt is one of the foremost pioneers of integrative psychiatry in the world, who has trained scores of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurse practitioners, and even nutritionists like myself. The ADHD Intensive is jam-packed with science, information, protocols, and references to back it all up. The live group Q&A sessions brought it all down to a practical and clinical level, giving me the confidence I needed to implement the strategies. This training is a “no brainer” (pun intended!) for anyone looking to further their understanding of ADHD from an integrative standpoint. You won’t be disappointed!”
