Drug Free Solutions to Mental Health Disorders: Nutrition, Mindfulness & Detoxification

By Dr. Charles Gant

Program outline includes substance abuse and dependence, ADHD, anxiety disorders, and a roadmap to brain healing.


1- Understand the true meaning of the DSM IV definition of mental disorders as heterogeneous (many causalities).

2- Contrast drug treatments (disease suppression) and drug free nutritional treatments (life enhancement) goals and objectives, and define appropriate roles for both in the treatment of mental disorders.

3- Compare the four main kinds of interventions utilized by both Conventional and Non-conventional and distinguish subspecialties in each area and their roles.

4- Differentiate the four kinds of molecular interventions (nutritional/detoxification, bio-identical hormones, herbal and pharmaceutical) and critique these based on safety, efficacy, cost and difficulty of administration for various acute and chronic disorders.

5- Contrast Orthomolecular approach (nutritional restoration, detoxification, bio-identical hormone replacement approach) with pharmacological approach and discuss how both approaches can be combined to provide the best care.
