Natural Approaches to Mental Health: Nourish, Move, AwakenOver the past decades the rates of anxiety, depression and ADHD have increased steadily, especially among children and adolescents. What are the preventable causes of these conditions? What has eroded the natural ability to bounce back from adversity? And what can be done to regain resilience and sustain it throughout a lifetime?
As integrative and holistic physicians, Doctors Emmons, Culbert and Shannon will take a broad and refreshing look at these questions. Blending natural, integrative approaches and mind/body skills with Western medicine, we will describe the resilience model, natural therapies, a judicious role for medication and a systematic approach to using skills, not pills, as the foundation of good mental health. We will discuss the core factors in resilience, their scientific basis, and how they can help one achieve greater vitality, equanimity, openness and connection.
