Nourishing the Brain: Protocols for the Prevention of Cognitive Decline & Dementia
Led by James Greenblatt, MD

Coming Soon

Webinar sponsored by LumaTC

Coming Soon!
Webinar Recording Date: August 3, 2021

Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia represent the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S., and the only cause amongst the top ten that cannot be cured or curtailed through pharmaceutical intervention. Despite decades’ worth of research, viable treatment solutions for Alzheimer’s, dementia, and cognitive decline continue to elude modern medicine.

In this webinar, Dr. James Greenblatt will explore the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s from a systems neurobiology framework, highlighting biochemical abnormalities that research has robustly associated with symptomatic presentations. He will focus on homocysteine and low-dose lithium – the former an internationally-acknowledged risk factor for Alzheimer’s that can be mitigated with B-vitamins, and the latter a natural, essential mineral that happens also to be a neuroprotective powerhouse.

He will review studies supporting the use of homocysteine mitigation and low-dose lithium supplementation, as well as mechanisms underlying lithium’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects. Finally, he will provide evidence-based recommendations for the use of B-vitamins and low-dose lithium, providing attendees with clinical pearls that they may incorporate into existing protocols to maximize therapeutic outcomes.

Functional & Integrative Medicine for Mental Illness: Fundamentals for Therapists
Led by James Greenblatt, MD

Webinar Recording Date: July 20, 2021

Over the last decades, incidence rates of psychiatric disorders have skyrocketed, reflecting an unprecedented surge of medical burden that psychiatry seems increasingly ill-equipped to address. In this webinar Dr. James Greenblatt will explore how a Functional and Integrative Medicine approach offers a solution to these challenges. Along with lifestyle, dietary, and/or psychotherapeutic modalities, Functional and Integrative Medicine interventions prioritizing the correction of nutritional deficiencies are more likely to address the root causes of mental illness successfully than are traditional symptom → drug models.

Join Dr. Greenblatt as he explores how functional and integrative medicine can offer psychologists, therapists, counselors, and social workers new treatment avenues for mental illness by addressing biochemical imbalances that contribute to pathology. He will introduce the key tenets of Functional and Integrative Medicine as they apply to mental illness, and examine the risks, potential side-effects, and benefits of nutritional supplementation aligned with a systems biology model. Finally, he will discuss how this approach presents today’s therapists with a path to the standard of care we all deserve, a path illuminated by science and upheld by the mandates of conscientious, personalized medicine.

An Integrative Approach to PANS/PANDAS
Led by Elisa Song, MD

Webinar Recording Date: July 15, 2021

We are facing an epidemic of childhood anxiety and autoimmune encephalitis in the form of PANS/PANDAS. As integrative practitioners it’s not a matter of IF, it’s a matter of WHEN you will see a child with PANS/PANDAS. Most children will not have access to more aggressive hospital-based interventions such as IVIG, plasmapheresis, corticosteroid infusions or immunosuppressant medications. However, even these interventions are focused on suppression and not reversal of the underlying disease process. An integrative functional medicine approach offers the possibility to heal and reverse what otherwise can be a devastating neuropsychiatric illness. During this session, we will explore the underlying pathophysiology and biomedical imbalances that underlie PANS/PANDAS, and how to use a functional and integrative pediatric approach to address root causes and heal from the inside out.

Three Simple Steps to Healthier Sleep
Led by Stasha Gominak, MD

Webinar Recording Date: July 6, 2021

New brain science discoveries show that the vitamin D we produce on our skin entrains our sleep to the planet’s annual winter/summer cycle. Avoiding the sun has left us with a global epidemic of sleep disorders, a failed microbiome, and an abnormal immune system that each play a role in our failing health. In this webinar, Dr. Gominak will discuss how these factors have led to a series of common disorders that are now recognized to be Acetylcholine deficiency states. Webinar attendees will be able to use this new information to help their patients sleep better and return their microbiome to normal, producing a stronger immune system, and bringing their autonomic nervous system function back to normal.

A Functional Medicine Approach to Bipolar Disorder: A New Way Forward
Led by James Greenblatt, MD

Webinar Recording Date: June 22, 2021

Known to the ancient Greeks and Romans as a distinct psychiatric ailment characterized by cyclic extremes of mood and behavior, bipolar disorder remains today one of the most challenging mental illnesses for clinicians to address – challenging to identify, challenging to treat. Mainstream interventions adhering solely to psychopharmaceutical approaches are incomplete, and do not account for biologic factors that so often influence the trajectory of this complex disorder. Through a functional and integrative approach, it becomes possible to address etiologic factors that contribute to BD, and formulate targeted, personalized interventions for patient health.

PCOS: How Reproductive, Metabolic, and Mental Health Issues Can Intersect
Led by Felice Gersh, MD

Webinar Recording Date: June 16, 2021

PCOS is the most common endocrine disorder of reproductive aged women, affecting as many as 10-20%. Despite its prevalence, its complex manifestations spanning female fertility, metabolic health, and mental functions, remain poorly understood by most professionals and patients. The development of PCOS connects the powerful roles played by genetics, hormones, the gut microbiome, and the immune system with alterations in cardiometabolic and brain health. This webinar will review the latest research and theories involving the PCOS epidemic and provide efficacious therapeutic approaches to help all women with PCOS achieve better quality lives.

Enhancing Dopaminergic Neurotransmission with Natural Phenolic Compounds
Led by Kelly Heim, PhD

Webinar Recording Date: May 11, 2021

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter with profound etiological and therapeutic importance in emotional, behavioral and neurocognitive health. A variety of plant-derived phenolic compounds enhance dopaminergic transmission by augmenting biosynthesis, reducing degradation, or improving synaptic function through metabolic, endocrine or immunological mechanisms. This lecture will assess the current arsenal of dopamine-modulating phenolic compounds in dietary and medicinal plants, with a special emphasis on relative potency and bioavailability.

The Neuropsychiatric Effects of Mold
Led by Mary Ackerley, MD

Webinar Recording Date: April 28, 2021

The brain is a major target of damage in inhalational toxicity from exposure to mold. There are at least 37 different symptoms associated with exposure to mold, and nearly half are related to the brain or autonomic nervous system. In this webinar, Dr. Ackerley will review common neuropsychiatric symptoms associated with mold exposure, including anxiety, depression, brain fog, and more. She will also discuss possible neurological, pathological mechanisms related to mold toxicity, and offer some practical means for recognition and effective treatment.

Treating OCD Using Kundalini Yoga Meditation Techniques: A Review of Three Clinical Trials
Led by David Shannahoff-Khalsa

Webinar Recording Date: April 6, 2021

David Shannahoff-Khalsa’s scientific publications include three clinical trials showing the efficacy of Kundalini Yoga meditation techniques for treating those with OCD. His basic science also provides a new perspective for the rhythmic nature of psychophysiological states and how to self-regulate these states. In this webinar, David will provide insight into how the two cerebral hemispheres alternate in dominance with an “hourly-like” rhythm that is tightly coupled to the nasal cycle, during both waking and sleep. This rhythm plays a critical role in our behavior, attitudes, cognitive skill performances, desires, metabolism, emotions, drives, sexual functions, eating habits, ability to fall asleep, neuroendocrine activity, immune functions, cardiovascular functions, and the temporal nature and variance of the severity of psychiatric disorders. He will also review his three clinical trials demonstrating how Kundalini Yoga can be used to effectively treat OCD.

An Introduction to Low-Dose Lithium for Psychiatric & Neurological Disorders
Led by James Greenblatt, MD

Webinar Recording Date: March 30, 2021

Whenever the word “lithium” is mentioned in medical or psychiatric circles, it tends to inspire more questions than answers. Is it safe or toxic? Is it a medicine, a nutrient, or both? At certain concentrations, lithium is toxic to us; at others, it is a medicinal mineral celebrated since the early 20th century for its ability to stabilize mood. A growing body of research literature and clinical evidence suggests that lithium may in fact be one of the most promising treatments available. In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will present low-dose nutritional lithium as an effective and safe solution for a range of psychiatric and neurologic disorders, including Alzheimer’s and suicide prevention and addressing symptoms of anger, irritability, and rage.

A Functional Medicine Approach to Binge-Eating Disorder
Led by James Greenblatt, MD

Webinar Recording Date: March 16, 2021

Scientific research shows that the majority of current treatment models Binge-Eating Disorder often fail to comprehensively address etiologic factors. Therapeutic paradigms that focus solely on psychological contributors exclude potentially significant biologic factors. Studies have revealed that Binge-Eating Disorder is often correlated with metabolic abnormalities, dyslipidemia, micronutrient imbalances, satiety signaling, neurotransmission, affective regulation, and systemic inflammation, all of which can influence mood and behavior.

In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will discuss simple, practical interventions as part of a functional medicine approach to Binge-Eating Disorder. The New Hope model integrates lab testing, nutritional supplementation, dietary modifications, and medication, and targets biochemical pathways that regulate appetite, allowing clinicians to address imbalances that perpetuate hunger and cravings.

Functional Medicine for Alcoholism: The Founder of Alcoholics Anonymous’ Biggest Regret
Led by James Greenblatt, MD

Webinar Recording Date: January 2021

Current models for the treatment of alcohol use disorders often focus on behavioral or psychopharmacologic interventions to the exclusion of biologic factors. In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will first present an empirically supported rationale for the implementation of functional medicine assessment and treatment strategies in tandem with traditional approaches. Next, he will examine the lesser-known legacy of the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, Bill W., and how his work with orthomolecular pioneer Abram Hoffer first revealed B vitamin deficiency as a key factor in alcohol use disorder. He will discuss the biological mechanisms of how B vitamins augment and optimize brain health, with a special focus on the brain’s reward pathways. This webinar will provide a fascinating glimpse into Dr. Greenblatt’s functional medicine model for the treatment of addiction and provide a roadmap for navigating alcohol use disorders and bringing patients back into balance.
