MUIH PCE Lecture Series: Case Study on Anxiety
Format: On-Demand, Self-Paced Lecture
Time to Complete: 1 hour
CEUs: 1 CEU (Nutritionists, NDs)
Credential: Certificate of Participation
In partnership with Maryland Naturopathic Doctors Association (MNDA), the MUIH Nutrition Department presented the 2018 Nutrition Symposium, Nutritional Genomics in Clinical Practice.
The field of nutrigenomics emphasizes the critical intersection of nutrition and genetic expression, and MUIH’s symposium centered specifically on translating nutrigenomics information for the clinician and clinical practice. The recorded presentation from the symposium by Dr. Erin Kinney will allow you to learn the science behind the field and gain practical skills to apply in practice to meet the growing patient and client demand for information.
Anxiety disorders are the most prevalent mental health condition in the U.S. affecting an estimated 44 million adults and children. With over 18% of the population suffering from anxiety, it’s no surprise that it’s a frequent complaint among patients (Anxiety and Depression Association of America 2017). Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, trauma, life events and can often co-exist with other chronic health issues.
This case study presentation will first focus on the importance of taking a thorough history as it pertains to previous diagnoses, emotional and physical traumas, and family history. It will then illustrate how to develop a treatment plan using nutrigenomics, homeopathy, diet, and lifestyle and how to present it to the patient in a way that the presentation itself helps to reduce their anxiety symptoms not worsen them as can often happen with patients suffering from chronic anxiety. There is an art to treating anxiety. In this presentation, you will learn to identify past events in a patient’s life that may be a contributing factor in their anxiety, how to utilize pertinent genetic and other test results to develop a treatment plan, and how to present results to the patient in a way that lessens their anxiety.
