Description: Multiple converging lines of evidence have shown that the primary cause of inflammation may be the dysfunction of the gut-brain axis. This presentation reviews the links between dysbiosis, metaflammation, and psychiatric conditions. Dr. Scheiderer discusses the impact of medications, alcohol, diet, and lifestyle as well as the therapeutic potential of targeted probiotics and specialized nutrients to support gut-brain health and mental wellbeing.*

Learning Objectives:

  • Clarification of gastrointestinal contributions to common psychiatric conditions with a special emphasis on systemic and neuroinflammation
  • Detailed recommendations, including intestinal permeability and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth assessments, as an integral component of evaluating psychiatric complaints
