Over four modules, clinicians of all specialties will become adept in identifying and assessing the biologic abnormalities—nutritional, genetic, metabolic, and environmental factors—that underlie the diagnosis of depression in numerous patients. Employing a model of functional medicine, you will learn the diagnostic tests you should be running on patients, the role key nutrients play in maintaining neurologic health, and biologic treatment protocols that can be easily incorporated into your practice.
- Identify the genetic, nutritional, metabolic, and environmental causes of depression
- Describe the role of inflammation in the “depressogenic” process, along with dietary factors in the presentation of depression symptoms
- Substantiate the physiologic associations between diet and depression
