Gut Instincts: Navigating Complicated GI Symptoms amongst Eating Disorders
April 20, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
Often when working with complicated eating disorder patients, clinicians are faced with navigating digestive issues that are impacting the client’s symptoms and motivation for behavior change. This clinical presentation is focused on the intersection of GI issues and eating disorders, how to utilize nutrition and evidence-based interventions to provide effective recommendations to clients, and how the gut-brain axis can be optimized to promote recovery.
After attending this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the anatomy of the GI tract.
- Understand the communication pathways that connect the gut-brain.
- Identify causes of gut-brain axis dysfunction and the impact on mood.
- Identify nutrients and deficiencies that are key players in depression and anxiety.
