Course Description:

Join Karen Lamb, ND, LCC, as she teaches you how to think more holistically about diagnosis, nutritional deficiencies, and hormonal imbalances that may contribute to mental health disorders. Nutritional psychology is an emerging field outlining how nutrients can affect mood and behavior. Many clients see a reduction in symptoms when integrating non-pharmaceutical interventions to treat depression, anxiety, bipolar and ADHD. You will learn the underlying causes and symptoms of these disorders, to more accurately diagnose and treat your clients.

Through case analysis, you will experience how addressing core physical and nutritional needs can greatly increase therapeutic results. You will discover the nutrients most essential to help treat your most depressed and anxious clients, and learn simple strategies that can be integrated with pharmaceutical interventions. Leave this seminar with the tools and understanding necessary to immediately incorporate these strategies into your clinical practice.
Objectives:

  1. Articulate how integrative interventions facilitate better treatment outcomes in depression, anxiety, bipolar and ADHD.
  2. Determine the nutrients shown to improve brain function for your clients.
  3. Evaluate how improved nutrition can improve therapeutic outcomes for clients with depression, anxiety, bipolar and ADHD.
  4. Analyze the differences between mental illness versus nutritional and hormonal imbalances.
  5. Assess the impact hormones can have on mental health assessment and treatment.
  6. Evaluate the impact of blood sugar and genetic variations on mental health disorders and effective treatment.

KAREN LAMB, ND, LPC

Dr. Karen Lamb, ND, LPC, is both a Naturopathic doctor and licensed counselor, and the principal of Pura Vida Natural Medicine. Located in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, her practice focuses primarily on natural treatments for psychiatric conditions. Dr. Lamb is most passionate about natural and mindfulness-based physical and cognitive interventions for mental health, with a goal of inspiring and motivating her patients to move towards their best health.

After completing her graduate education in Counseling Psychology at Arizona State University she began a two-year residency in Mindfulness and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. During her residency, Dr. Lamb treated high-risk patients whose diagnoses included Borderline Personality disorder, Bipolar disorder, and other serious mental health conditions. Although her counseling background allowed for great healing, Dr. Lamb continuously identified a link between mental and physical well-being, and recognized the need for physical interventions in order to achieve complete wellness. The four-year Doctoral Program at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine provided Dr. Lamb with the additional tools necessary to facilitate total mind-body health for her patients.

Dr. Lamb’s specialty as a Psychiatric Naturopathic Doctor and Counselor is finding and understanding the root cause of chronic physical and/or psychological diseases. She uses natural, safe and effective treatments to unlock the body’s immense potential for regeneration and healing. The underlying goal is always to seek the most empowering path towards wellness that supports autonomy and success for each individual.

In addition to clinical practice, Dr. Lamb has taught Medical Psychotherapy at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine as well as a Naturopathic Mindfulness-based course titled Stress Management Tools at Arizona State University. She serves as a member of the board of directors for the Psychiatric Association of Naturopathic Physicians and manages memberships and professional development.
