Nutritional Psychiatry for Anorexia Nervosa

With a relapse rate of upwards of 50% and the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder, anorexia nervosa presents today’s mental health clinicians with a significant and daunting challenge.
Traditional treatments for anorexia prioritize psychology and BMI restoration and tend to omit considerations of biology, as well as the connections between malnutrition and brain function. As 100% of anorexia patients are malnourished, these mainstream treatment models are fundamentally incomplete.
In this seminar, Dr. James Greenblatt will present an evidence-based, integrated biological model of anorexia treatment that prioritizes nutritional repletion. He will review research linking essential nutrient deficiencies, brain function, and anorexia symptoms with a focus on zinc, B vitamins, and essential fatty acids. He will also explore etiologic contributions of Celiac disease and gut dysbiosis, and how digestion optimization may improve therapeutic outcomes.
