The Mind-Body Connection: Food, Mood – and Sleep

Sleep and sound nutrition are widely recognised to be essential to mental health – this day gives you an opportunity to learn about these two areas in depth, including the role of the Microbiome.

A greater understanding of these two areas can be vital in freeing ourselves from the ‘mind-only mindset’ to help us quickly and effectively resolve many of our difficulties in life.

This course provides you with an opportunity to focus on the science of Sleep – which has always been integral to the human givens approach – and to catch up on recent advances in understanding and evidence as to which approaches best help with poor sleep with our expert tutor. Sleep is a complex set of processes and understanding how these relate to key the areas of restoration, learning and emotional regulation in different types of mental health disturbances can help us in many situations.

The role of food and the microbiome in mental health is seldom part of managing the immediate challenges we face, yet is so important in preventing difficulties, or maintaining recovery, that it is an area in which we can benefit from feeling greater confidence when guiding and advising our clients (or ourselves!).

Throughout the day, tutor and GP Andrew Morrice draws on the latest research and his decades of experience managing the complex combination of mental and physical health problems in General Practice (20 of those years, using the Human Givens model), to take us on a deep dive into two of the key interfaces between mind and body: sleep and food, and their effects on our health.
