Optimizing Brains: Understanding the Importance of Fuel

Back to AAPPN

This webinar discusses how to have more energy and mental clarity. Supporting the idea that the body needs food to fuel the Mind, Brain, and Relationships, we'll cover:

  • How food affects the brain, energy levels and mental clarity,
  • How to differentiate among trauma, anxiety and hypoglycemia, and
  • How to differentiate between depression and fatigue

Included in this is an overview of some key research, the physiology involved, and some tools that can be used to help people who need a little more bandwidth to lower anxiety and depression, decrease fatigue and end early morning waking insomnia.
