  • Course Description:


    This presentation is an introduction to the contemporary and empirical evidence for the application of integrative, culinary, and nutritional approaches to mental health.  I define the Brainbow Blueprint® as a roadmap to integrative medicine and nutrition for mental health. This workshop will explore the latest nutritional research to inform psychotherapeutic practice and how diet can affect mood, as well as the links between depression, inflammation, and cognitive function.  We explore nutrition as biology not ideology, and nutritional self -care as psychoeducation, the science of bio individuality and why there is no one diet for everyone—some people are carnivores and some are vegetarians—the use of amino acid therapies and specific protocols for complex trauma and PTSD, attention and focus, depression, OCD, bipolar, anxiety and panic. Finally, we explore methods for integrating nutrition and culinary therapies into psychotherapy, collaboration with nutrition professionals’ opportunities for a niche practice, and ethics and scope of practice. Identifying high quality resources and testing will be explored. This presentation is drawn from a 30 hour training.
