A mental health presentation by Rachel Arthur Nutrition
Rachel has been delivering education regarding the role of nutrition in the management of depression for over eight years. From her first to her most recent presentations, there has been a wealth of new research and information incorporated which further supports these strategies. The material is delivered in bite size chunks with the first section a brief rundown of the epidemiology of major depression, the efficacy and issues associated with pharmaceutical anti-depressants and some statistics on the use of complementary medicines amongst depressed patients suffering.
This is followed by detailed information regarding three nutritional explanations for depression: inflammation, methylation and the monoamine theory, including corrective strategies and prescriptions. The last section details a ‘back to basics approach’ placing nutritional supplementation in the broader context of tailored augmentative dietary and lifestyle improvements.
