Nervousness, Worry & Fear: Nutritional Interventions that Address Underlying Neurological & Endocrine Factors

Presented by: James Greenblatt, MD+
Monday, December 5, 2016

Nervousness, worry and fear are familiar emotions that all individuals encounter from time to time. However, for 40 million American adults, these feelings occur on a frequent basis, even in the absence of threatening situations. Accumulating research-based evidence indicates that nutritional factors have a significant effect on neurological and endocrine factors that contribute to generalized apprehension, persistent tension and worried thoughts. In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will provide a clinical overview of the most effective integrative psychiatric modalities, with a focus on nutritional supplements that support relaxation, mood and healthy stress responses. Major findings from clinical trials and case studies will be presented.
