Scientific evidence confirms ADHD to be a neurologic, brain-based disorder represented by numerous biological abnormalities. What is observable as atypical behavior is merely the tip of an iceberg that extends down to an individual’s unique biochemical makeup. Certain nutritional imbalances, which can profoundly impact cognition and behavior, are significantly correlated with this common disorder. Health-care practitioners, however, often overlook diet, micronutrient status, and individual biochemistry in ADHD treatment and assessment.
Fortunately, addressing nutritional imbalances with an integrative treatment plan has proven effective in treating ADHD. This three-module course will introduce Dr. Greenblatt’s breakthrough Plus/Minus plan for ADHD and provide a comprehensive overview of the biochemistry ‘beneath’ the disorder. Dietary interventions and augmentation strategies for the mitigation of specific nutrient deficiencies will be reviewed, as well as recommendations for going “beyond biochemistry” to enhance treatment outcomes.
