Anxiety Through a Biopsychosocial Lens

Presenter: Emily Wolbers, ND
Original Date: February 10, 2024

Anxiety is one of the most common health conditions in the United States. Typically, only 25-30% of people experience relief in symptoms from pharmacologic & psychotherapy interventions alone. With this knowledge in mind, clinicians must look at anxiety through a biopsychosocial lens and address the physical, mental, and social factors that cause the prevalence of anxiety. In this lecture, we explore how inflammation, metabolism, microbiome, and nutrition play a role in the pathogenesis of anxiety. We discuss nutritional interventions clinicians can take to support mental health, including trialed ingredients to cut out and specific nutrients to add in. The inventions discussed are through the lens of supporting anti-inflammatory pathways and appropriate microbial balance, as well as how to view anxiety as a disorder of metabolism.
