Advanced nutrition for the brain series: stress, the HPA-axis and neuroinflammation


Date:
Time: 11:00 am

Advanced nutrition for the brain series: stress, the HPA-axis and neuroinflammation. Targeted nutritional interventions for successful treatment of mental health conditions.

Inflammation is a major contributing factor to chronic modern illness and is driven, in part, by chronic stress and HPA-axis over stimulation. Mental health conditions, in particular clinical depression, are increasingly linked with neuroinflammation. As such, anti-inflammatory interventions are known to result in significant clinical benefits.

During this webinar Dr Bailey will discuss the biological mechanisms linking stress, chronic inflammation and mood disorders, together with a review of the current evidence for a targeted, anti-inflammatory nutrition approach to treatment. Nina will also clarify why some of the recent trials have failed to report benefits and how to optimise your anti-inflammatory interventions to treat clients with anxiety, depression, schizophrenia and PTSD.
