-Free Educational Webinar Series Hosted by Terry Talks Nutrition-
Research over the past decade has highlighted the importance of inflammation in depression and other mental health disorders. In this webinar, Dr. Lopresti will cover the current research on the relationship between inflammation and mental health, how inflammation affects mood and general brain function, and where the epidemic of excess inflammation may be coming from. Natural solutions to reduce inflammation and therefore improve mood and mental health will also be covered. This includes a discussion on lifestyle, psychological, dietary and nutraceutical treatments that have ‘anti-inflammatory’ and mood-lifting effects.
