Fuel the Brain, Not Anxiety
Improving energy and mental clarity for better mental health
Dr. Kristen Allott, ND, MS will discuss the physiology of decision-making and how food, sleep, movement and nasal breathing can improve energy and mental clarity. Participants will be provided new understanding and tools for being trauma responsive, improving own energy and mental clarity and new tools to prevent secondary trauma and improve resilience. Each participant will receive handouts and access to videos to support immediate use in clinical practice for clients with fatigue, anxiety, irritation, and early morning waking.
This training is worth 8 CE credit hours if attended live. While we can only provide CE to those who are present – i.e. logged in – for all live sessions, Praxis webinars are recorded for later viewing. Registrants may access these recordings at any time for up to nine months from the conclusion of the training to which they pertain.
