Orthomolecular Applications in Integrative Psychiatry: Schizophrenia and Psychosis - Presented by Dr. James Greenblatt Comments
Online Course for Healthcare Professionals - Presented via Live Webinar
Schizophrenia is a highly variable, multifactorial mental disorder producing a spectrum of symptoms ranging from odd but harmless behavioral abnormalities to full psychosis. The concept of biochemical individuality is therefore of particular importance within integrative approaches to treatment of this unique illness. This six-module course incorporates the theories of orthomolecular medicine into nutritional psychiatry, presenting decades of supportive research evidence. In addition to vitamin deficiencies, multiple contributors to inflammation are implicated in the etiology of schizophrenia and addressed in a comprehensive, integrative treatment plan for use in clinical practice. This 6 module course qualifies participants to recieve 9 category C CE credits in BC.
Module 1 will be presented at 5 pm PST on May 3rd, 2018. Subsequent modules will be present on Thursday evenings at 5 pm PST.
