Functional Medicine for Suicide Prevention in a Primary Care Setting

February 26, 2021

Suicide is a public health issue of critical importance, one which merits our best, most focused efforts towards treatment and prevention. This webinar will introduce a biologic framework for suicide prevention, one in which the concept of suicidality as the result of underlying nutritional, genetic, and psychosocial risk factors is explored. Scientific research supporting significant associations between malnutrition, essential fatty acid deficiencies, lithium deficiency, low cholesterol, and suicidality will be reviewed. Studies illustrating the benefits of targeted nutritional augmentation to mitigate risk factors will be presented; evidence-based interventions will be described; and a prevention model centered upon objective biologic measurement and a concept of biochemical individuality will be elucidated.

This session is accredited for 1.0 CNE credit.
