Learn how functional medicine can revolutionize childhood development, cognition and overall wellness. Functional medicine is an inclusive approach to caring for an individual that takes into account their nutrition, environment, genetics, physiology and more. When caring for the whole child, through this holistic and science-based approach, you can often lessen or reverse chronic conditions, and reach new levels of health never conceived before. This one-hour virtual adult education session features Dr. Emily Gutierrez of Neuronutrition Associates, as she addresses best practices, myths and truths about diet and neurodevelopment.
