“This seminar has been an incredible and eye opening opportunity for me to understand the biology behind eating disorders. Unfortunately this information is not standard in typical training programs for eating disorder ‘specialists’ — but absolutely NEEDS TO BE! Hopefully we can be the ones to change mental health CARE thanks to Dr. Greenblatt!”

~ Danielle S.

100% of anorexia patients are malnourished, and mainstream treatment models are fundamentally incomplete.


Traditional treatments for anorexia prioritize psychology and BMI restoration, and tend to omit considerations of biology, as well as the connections between malnutrition and brain function. In this seminar, Dr. James Greenblatt, world-renowned expert on nutritional psychiatry and bestselling author of Answers to Anorexia, will discuss proactive approaches to nutrition repletion and proven, evidence-based strategies to help patients find lasting relief.

Nutritional Psychiatry for Anorexia Nervosa

with Dr. James Greenblatt

Why aren’t we treating a disorder that robs the body of nutrients… with nutrients?

With a relapse rate of upwards of 50% and the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder, anorexia nervosa presents today’s mental health clinicians and patients with a significant and daunting challenge.

In this 2.5 hour seminar, Dr. James Greenblatt will present an evidence-based, integrative, biological model of anorexia treatment that addresses malnutrition and prioritizes nutritional repletion. He will review research linking essential nutrient deficiencies, brain function, and anorexia symptoms with a focus on zinc, B vitamins, and essential fatty acids, and how digestion optimization may improve therapeutic outcomes.

This seminar will help mental health professionals of all types learn how to apply nutritional repletion protocols and utilize a toolbox to tackle anorexia, providing real hope for recovery.

DURATION OF ACTIVITY: March 25, 2023 through March 24, 2025

This course, presented by Dr. James Greenblatt, introduces a functional medicine model for anorexia nervosa (AN) treatment and recovery. Research supporting associations between metabolic abnormalities and micronutrient imbalances will be objectively reviewed, illuminating critical treatment targets for today’s functional psychiatry practice and providing an empirically validated blueprint for personalized interventions. Upon completion, students will be able to substantiate the clinical utility of a functional medicine approach for AN, and safely incorporate evidence-based treatment strategies into existing therapeutic models to maximize patient outcomes.


  • Analyze the biological functions of zinc, essential fatty acids and magnesium and their relevance to AN symptoms or pathogenesis.
  • Evaluate the relationships between veganism/vegetarianism, celiac disease, digestive enzymes and anorexia nervosa.
