About the event
Anxiety is one of the most common health conditions in the United States. Typically, only 25-30% of people experience relief in symptoms from medication and therapy alone. Anxiety can be caused by physical, mental, and social factors, so taking a multi-prong approach to soothe anxiety is incredibly important.
In this lecture, we explore how inflammation, metabolism, and nutrition play a role in the cause of anxiety. We discuss nutritional approaches that support mental health, including ingredients to cut out and specific nutrients to add in. These nutrition interventions help support anti-inflammatory pathways and balance in the microbiome.
