The Anxiety Nutrition Institute offers online training for health professionals who are looking for nutritional solutions for anxiety for their patients and clients.

The first course, Balancing Neurotransmitters: the Fundamentals, is a high-level overview on the use of targeted individual amino acids for anxiety. You can learn more here.

The material is research-based with an emphasis on practical applications. Case studies are used to facilitate learning and I share specific products and resources that I use in my practice.

In the near future, there will be courses on the following: an in-depth training on GABA for physical anxiety; an in-depth training on tryptophan for worry-type anxiety; food and anxiety; the microbiome / gut and anxiety; pyroluria/social anxiety; methylation and anxiety; medication dependence, tolerance, withdrawal and safe tapering (taught with an integrative psychiatrist) and much more.
