This course is intended for clinicians of all specialties who seek to redefine the model by which they characterize, assess, and treat depressive illness. Through four separate modules, an integrative functional medicine model of depression will be introduced, one in which depression is understood to arise from underlying biologic abnormalities associated with nutritional, metabolic, genetic, and environmental factors. Recommendations for the implementation of testing and augmentation strategies will provided alongside research elucidating the roles that key nutrients play in maintaining neurologic health, providing registrants with evidence-based, integrative strategies that can be incorporated into existing therapeutic protocols.
