Over the thousands of years that it has been used as a medicine, the natural mineral lithium has undergone several dramatic transformations in terms of popular opinion – revered by the Greeks and Romans as a health tonic; then celebrated in the early 20th century as a mood-stabilizing pharmaceutical; then shrouded in negative stigma as misperceptions about the lithium dose-response curve arose in the late 20th century. Today, the lithium pendulum is swinging fast in the other direction as an explosion of new research illuminates the true nature of this primordial element. Not only is lithium an essential micronutrient, found in the tissues and body fluids of all vertebrate organisms, but it is also a powerful promoter of physical and mental health when introduced into the body at trace levels that satisfy intrinsic requirements. Research increasingly supports lithium as being one of the more powerful tools in the modern neuropsychiatric arsenal, with applications ranging from bipolar disorder and ADHD to addiction, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and suicide prevention.
Lithium has been a cornerstone of my functional psychiatry practice for decades. Join me on a journey to discover lithium’s true identity and therapeutic potential in modern clinical contexts. In this webinar, we will explore the body of research evidence corroborating lithium’s nutritional essentiality and utility as a functional intervention for neurologic and psychiatric illness. I will discuss the lithium dose-response curve, defining dose parameters for low-dose lithium that are safe, accessible, and powerfully effective across a range of diagnoses. Finally, I will provide evidence-based recommendations for the use of low-dose lithium, providing you with clinical pearls that may be incorporated into existing therapeutic protocols to maximize patient outcomes.
