Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider (CMHIMP) Training Course: Nutritional and Integrative Medicine for Mental Health Professionals – Leslie Korn
Clients who are eager to reduce frustrating symptoms caused by anxiety, depression, ADHD, and other mental health disorders often turn to holistic approaches like diet and nutrition to help ease their symptoms.
Many clients self-prescribing based on information obtained on the Internet or their friends. And while many of these clinical methods have few negative side effects, some herbal supplements, juice fasts, and other apparently healthy activities can have significant adverse outcomes if not tailored to the individual’s psychobiology.
As a clinician, it can be intimidating when clients start asking you for guidance on how to use nutrition to improve their well-being. Suddenly you find yourself thinking “I’m not a nutritional therapist, I’m not trained for that!” And, “What am I allowed to do, ethically?”
…but it doesn’t have to be hard or complicated.
That’s why I created this exclusive, online certificate training designed to be your practical guide through the complex relationship between what we eat and the way we think, feel, and interact with the world.
Join me today and I’ll provide you safe, effective and affordable evidence-based holistic approaches that will help your clients achieve optimal health and wellness while preventing and treating common mental health problems.
From anxiety and depression to schizophrenia and PTSD, you’ll discover how nutritional and integrative medicine can work alongside and even replace medications to alleviate symptoms and support mental health.
You’ll end this course with your Certificate in Nutritional and Integrative Medicine for Mental Health and be fully prepared to start providing your clients personalized care from an array of scientific disciplines proven to improve their mood and mental health.
