Event description
Join us to learn the importance of enhanced nutrition which can improve resilience and reduce mental health problems.

About this event

The pandemic has highlighted the importance of mental resilience. Although many social variables and self-help practices can protect people from the stress of this current situation (networks of family and friends, online social events, exercise, meditation), there is also definitive research showing that enhanced nutrient intake in times of crisis can improve resilience and reduce mental health problems. We can make sense of this fact by gaining familiarity with fight-flight demands, the Triage Theory, and the role of nutrients in brain metabolism.

This talk will review the important role of enhanced nutrition for improving resilience in populations under stress. Dr. Bonnie Kaplan is a professor emerita in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary and a co-author of a recently published book The Better Brain: Overcome Anxiety, Combat Depression, and Reduce ADHD and Stress with Nutrition (April, 2021). Dr. Kaplan, along with her co-author Dr. Julia Rucklidge, have published widely in the medical and scientific literature about a paradigm-shifting approach to preventing and treating mental disorders with food and nutrients.
