Schizophrenia is a multifactorial psychiatric disorder producing a spectrum of symptoms including psychosis. Schizophrenia is associated with significant disabilities and affects all areas of life. The current therapeutic model for schizophrenia relies exclusively on pharmaceutical agents for symptom suppression. The medications used to treat psychosis and schizophrenia have significant side effects and are associated not only with a diminished quality of life but also decreased life span.
The growing body of research has demonstrated that diet and nutrition can reduce or eliminate the symptoms of schizophrenia. Research has looked at the role of oxidative stress and metabolic abnormalities in the onset and progression of psychosis.
In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will discuss the scientific literature and 30 years of clinical experience looking at the role of nutrition as a modifiable risk factor in the development and progression of schizophrenia and psychosis. This webinar will focus on the role of ketogenic diets, antioxidants, and gluten.
