Functional Medicine for Binge Eating Disorder and Food Addiction
Every year, millions of Americans toil to lose weight, and spend on aggregate 55 billion dollars on products and services. Despite their efforts, two-thirds of U.S. adults remain obese or overweight. The research shows: diets do not work, and failed attempts to lose weight only make a bad situation worse by encouraging disordered eating behaviors.
For many people struggling with binge eating disorder (BED) and food addiction, the physical realities of “food dependency” are accompanied by profound psychological and emotional distress, locking sufferers into endless cycles of bingeing, guilt, and shame.
James Greenblatt, MD and founder of Psychiatry Redefined, joins Patricia Madrigal, MD and Psychiatry Redefined Fellow, to explore the “biology behind the binge” and present evidence-based strategies for identifying biological factors that may be contributing to BED and food addiction. Dr. Greenblatt will also explain how correcting underlying nutritional imbalances, optimizing neurotransmitter activity, and enhancing digestion are keystones of the Functional Medicine model for BED.
In this program you will learn:
- The role nutrition plays in regulating appetite and digestion
- How to navigate simple laboratory tests to reveal underlying nutritional imbalances, and illuminate personalized treatment regimens to rebalance appetite
- What key nutrients support healthy appetite and digestion
