About the Event

Looking to both protect your clients' brains, improve their cognitive function and memory? Join this practitioner focused webinar to learn how medicinal mushrooms can be useful in all areas of brain health.

Medical Herbalist and Naturopath, Sophie Barrett will look at the key medicinal mushrooms which can be used safely in clinical practice to effectively support adults and children with cognitive health challenges due to their neuroregenerative and neuroprotective effects.

Learn how different strains of medicinal mushrooms are powerful naturopathic tools in supporting  stress, focus and concentration and how they can also play a vital role in supporting brain and cognitive function.

With cases of anxiety, depression and ADHD on the rise, modulating the gut-brain axis as well as the hormonal and nervous systems is crucial for the prevention and therapeutic management of mental health challenges.

Medicinal mushrooms have been valued as food and health supplements for millennia and now there is much scientific evidence and clinical studies to support their use as both prebiotics and as adaptogens which can modulate the nervous and endocrine systems. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Learn what medicinal mushrooms have been well established candidates for brain and nerve health
  • Understand how mushrooms can support those experiencing brain fog, lack of focus and concentration
  • Learn which particular mushroom extracts can help with stress management
  • Understand how different strains can support and improve gut health
  • Learn more about the immunological benefits of mushrooms
  • Understand how to incorporate these mushrooms safely into clinical practice
