Module 1
ADHD Overview
Upcoming session: On Demand (MP4 Recording) 01:25:40 hours

ADHD is one of the most commonly diagnosed mental disorders among children. Nutritional factors are often excluded from diagnostic evaluation when determining the etiologies of behavioral abnormalities and poor academic performance. This module introduces the genetic, biochemical, and nutritional factors that disrupt neurotransmitter homeostasis and contribute to the symptoms of ADHD. We will also discuss how metaphysical concepts and practices apply to ADHD treatment.

Module 2
Macronutrients
Upcoming session: On Demand (MP4 Recording) 01:26:35 hours

Numerous population studies demonstrate a clear and consistent link between poor diet and an increased risk for ADHD. Dietary modification has been established as an effective component of patient care, with evidence indicating a direct dose-sensitive response to certain foods in many individuals. This module highlights the roles of dietary constituents from carbohydrates, protein, and fats that influence the regulation and metabolism of neurotransmitters in the brain.

Module 3
Micronutrients
Upcoming session: On Demand (MP4 Recording) 01:11:49 hours

The micronutrients module focuses on the critical functions of essential vitamins and minerals acting as enzyme co-factors in metabolic reactions with wide-ranging effects on hormones and neurotransmitters. Zinc, magnesium, lithium, iron, copper, phosphorus and lead will all be discussed in relation to their positive or negative impacts on ADHD symptoms. Finally, the profound benefits from exercise will be considered in the management of mood and behavior.
