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 in northern California in these locations and on these dates:

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM in Oakland, CA
Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM in Sacramento, CA
The fee of $89.99 includes course materials. You can register here http://www.pesi.com/search/detail/index.asp?eventid=14682
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:
Davison KM, Kaplan BJ. 2012. Nutrient Intakes Are Correlated With Overall Psychiatric Functioning in Adults With Mood Disorders. Canadian Journal of Psychiatry. 57:85-92
This study looked at Canadian adults with mood disorders. Intake of carbs, fiber, total fat, linoleic acid, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin B6, B12, pantothenic acid, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, magnesium and zinc were measured and “higher levels of nutrients equated to better mental health.” (This study was included on my poster presentation at the 2012 Anxiety Disorders Association of America conference)
One of the study authors, Dr Kaplan, PhD was quoted as saying: “Doctors should consider counseling their patients to eat unprocessed, natural, healthy foods and refer them to a nutrition professional if specialized dietary consultation is needed.”
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
