Probiotics for the mind: A crossroads of the microbiome and mental health

Free!

Free On Demand Webinar
Presented by: James Greenblatt, MD

Recorded: October 3, 2013

The gut-brain connection is a familiar concept that underscores the mind’s capacity to affect digestive health. However, new research shows that this relationship also functions in reverse. Specifically, microbial residents of the intestinal tract can influence emotional state, mood, cognition, stress responses and social behavior. Accordingly, as single agents or as adjuncts to traditional approaches, probiotics have many emerging applications in clinical psychiatry. In this webinar, Dr. James Greenblatt will provide an overview of how digestive health contributes to mental health, with a focus on research supporting the use of probiotics in integrative psychiatry. A review of indications, proper use, dosage and assessment methods will translate the latest discoveries into simple clinical approaches.*
