Pre webinar announcements segment: 00:00:00 – 00:02:49
Presentation with Dr. Kelly Brogan: 00:02:49 – 01:31:49

How can we best understand our depression and anxiety from a holistic standpoint? What are nutritional factors and non-medication interventions for the treatment of depressive and anxiety symptoms?

We look to answer these questions and more when Hawthorn University welcomes Dr. Kelly Brogan for her presentation Ancestral Psychiatry.

In this webinar participants will explore literature undermining safety and efficacy claims surrounding antidepressants with a focus on long-term outcomes and relapse risk. They will gain familiarity with physiologic imbalances, modifiable through diet and lifestyle interventions that can manifest as depression and anxiety such as thyroid imbalance, dysglycemia, or food intolerance. The theory and application of cytokine models of depression, and the relevance of the gut/brain axis will be discussed. Participants will also learn about the evidence to support considerations of nutritional factors and non-medication interventions for the treatment of depressive and anxiety symptoms.

    Thank you Dr Brogan for your work and for talking about it! Have a question. What or how can those of us harmed by psychotrophic drugs get help? Where can we find legal help? Many if us are now in the justice system because of rhe effects of medicarions we were prescribed. The justice system seems to be blind about what is happening and we cannot defend ourselves for what was done to us, for what the drugs caused us to do. Please let us know where we can find help, validation and justice .
