This three-module course introduces Dr. Greenblatt’s breakthrough Plus/Minus treatment plan for ADHD patients, while also providing a comprehensive overview of the biochemistry that contributes to this disorder. Treatment strategies such as specific nutrient deficiencies will be discussed in-depth as a supplement or alternative to medication.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, registrants will be able to:

  • Identify the key genetic, nutritional, metabolic, and environmental causes of ADHD

Modules

1. Finally Focused: Redefining the Treatment Model for ADHD

In the first module, we present 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.

2. The Role of Diet in ADHD: Macronutrients

Module 2 explains 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.

3. The Role of Diet in ADHD: Micronutrients

The last module in this course, we examine micronutrients and provide 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.
