#77 Cases in Neurochemistry.

Case-based diagnosis, treatment, and case adjustment: What do these cases look like?


Neurochemistry is accessed daily in medicine by commonly used neuropsychiatric drug classes. In natural and integrative medicine, it is often confusing where to start with cases involving neurotransmitters and other factors due to overlap of signs and symptoms, concomitant medication use, and other issues. In this webinar Dr. Anderson will use his experience in thousands of neurochemical case interactions through case-based examples to discuss assessment and diagnosis of neurochemical imbalances, therapeutic trials to correct them and patient management strategies when those therapies do, and do not, work. The focus will be on assessment and natural therapeutics, but common drug classes used in such cases will be discussed as well.
