The Mental Wellness Summit, online, August 10-17, 2015.
An online educational and empowering experience that explores better ways to approach and treat mental health from a root cause perspective.
Today’s powerful treatment options, including specialized diet and improved nutrition, targeted supplementation, integrative medicine, naturopathy and functional medicine, somatic therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, yoga and meditation, to name a few, are available but rarely considered for treating mental health. Let’s go beyond just psychiatry and drugs, and explore the best options for wellness in this evolving field.
Here are a few of the many interesting topics that will be covered at The Mental Wellness Summit:
- Kelly Brogan, MD: Holistic Medicine and Root-Cause Resolution
- Robert Whitaker, PhD: The Perils of Big Pharma
- David Perlmutter, MD: Microbiome: A New Frontier in Mental Health
- Chris Kresser, MS, LAC: About the Brain-Gut Connection
- Ross McKenzie Co-founder of Mental Wellness Summit, Filmmaker of Bipolarized : Journey Beyond Meds
- John Dempster, ND, Co-founder of Mental Wellness Summit: Heavy Metal Detoxification and Functional Medicine
- Trudy Scott, CN: Anxiety, Pyroluria and Amino Acid Therapy (my interview airs on August 15th if you haven’t yet heard me speak on this topic)
- Mansoor Mohammed, MD: Methylation, Genomics and Mood Disorders
Here are some snippets from the interview with Mansoor Mohammed, MD: Methylation, Genomics and Mood Disorders
- getting our genetic results “moves from being generic knowledge to knowledge that is personalized. And I think that’s where the power is at.”
- CNV: copy number variation i.e. we thought we had two copies of everything but some of us have no copies of some genes
- were we to know our individual [detox] capacity and capability, we can far better act upon it, far better adjust our diet accordingly, improve our environment
- the body uses methylation to reduce a very pro-inflammatory marker, something called homocysteine
- in the last several years, there’s been a far better appreciation of the intimate link between [cardio] vascular health and mental health
- if you have the version of COMT that is the overly fast version, when you produce dopamine, your dopamine is here one moment and gone the next
- the 5-HTTLPR variation…. affects how well serotonin is taken back up into the cells
- one of the most exciting genes and variations recently discovered is a gene called ADRA2b – a variation of this gene is intimately linked to how sensitive we stay to emotionally traumatic arousing events – so there are individuals that are way more likely to have that fearful personality, and that anxiety because of the strong mental links they have to certain traumatic events in their lives
