Mental Health Update - Dr. Peter Speaks at the CAND in Palm Springs, CA

03-01-2020 - Palm Springs, California

Mental Health Update - What is New in Natural Medicine for Mental Health?

Anxiety and depression are major reasons patients visit their medical doctors. Way too often, patients are given drugs which not only do not address the underlying concerns, but also contribute to further worsening of these conditions. While some remedies are well known for these conditions, a few supplements are relatively unheard of, yet quite effective. In this talk, Dr. Bongiorno will review the overall naturopathic view and treatment for these mental health conditions. In this context, he will focus on the newer supplemental choices: lithium, CBD oil, apocynum venetum, rosmarinic acid, carnosine, and also give research evidence and clinical experience for use of saffron, curcumin, and berberines. These are supplements that are not as well-known for mental health, but still excellent to help a patient move back to center when properly used. This is Dr. Bongiorno’s yearly update of what every naturopathic doctor needs to know to treat mental health disorders.

After the presentation, participants will be able to confidently:
1. Review naturopathic principles on how to treat anxiety and depression with sleep, exercise, foods, digestion, inflammation, mitochondrial work, adrenal stress, and basic supplementation.
2. Review the newest and most relevant supplements for anxiety and depression.
3. Learn the history, usage, and evidence based research of lithium, CBD oil, saffron, and many other herbs.
