Please join me for a full 1 day seminar to learn about the powerful connection between food and mood, and anxiety specifically.
“The Antianxiety Food Solution: Calm the Anxious Mind, Improve Mood & End Cravings”
I’ll be doing 3 talks on the east coast in these locations and on these dates:
Wednesday, December 6, 2012 at 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM in Portland, ME
Thursday, December 7, 2012 at 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM in Manchester, NH
Friday, December 8, 2012 at 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM in Burlington, VT
The fee of $89.99 includes course materials. You can register here:
These are PESI seminars and are geared towards mental health professionals and are also open to the public. They are delivered as a live event with Q & A at various times during the presentation. I’ll be covering all the latest research on food and mental health, as well as practical steps for implementing changes.
There is much recent research supporting the food mood connection and here is one recent study:
Dias GP, Cavegn N et al. 2012. The role of dietary polyphenols on adult hippocampal neurogenesis: molecular mechanisms and behavioural effects on depression and anxiety. 2012. Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity Epub 2012 Jun 28
“Studies on the effects of dietary polyphenols” (such as those found in green tea and turmeric), “on behaviour and AHN” (adult hippocampal neurogenesis), “may play an important role in the approach to use diet as part of the therapeutic interventions for mental-health-related conditions.”
If you can’t make the event in person, a great resource is my book The Antianxiety Food Solution: How the Foods You Eat Can Help You Calm Your Anxious Mind, Improve Your Mood and End Cravings, available in major books stores, at Amazon and via www.antianxietyfoodsolution.com. You can also purchase a DVD or CD set of the presentation (it’s a live recording from the Wisconsin presentation done earlier in 2012).
