Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a common disorder characterized by mood instability, dissociation, and emotional dysregulation. While often dismissed as benign compared to other diagnoses and often misdiagnosed, BPD can cause significant functional impairments, often in tandem with one or more psychiatric comorbidities. More seriously, BPD is robustly associated with suicidality. To make matter worse, no medication is approved for the treatment of BPD, yet nearly 50% of BPD patients take multiple psychotropics simultaneously, bringing the added burden of potential medication side effects.

In this seminar you’ll learn how to incorporate evidence-based strategies for testing and nutritional therapeutics into practice to help improve outcomes for your patients with BPD.

He examines how omega-3 fatty acids, low dose lithium, L-theanine, and B vitamins impact presentation of this disorder, along with nutritional interventions to stabilize mood, reduce agitation and irritability, mitigate suicidality, and optimize brain and neurotransmitter production.

Integrative Innovations in the Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder
