This presentation will present the scientific advances and case studies of treatment and relapse prevention of substance-use and co-occurring disorders . Neuromodulation interventions include Neurofeedback, Mindfulness Meditation and Targeted Nutrition to protect the Gut- Brain Axis.
The session will explore the overall advances in neurobiology and the gut-brain axis as well as clarify the mechanisms that are disrupted with chronic stress fundamental to addictive disorders. Bi-directional modulation of the Gut and Brain with Neurofeedback, Mindfulness Meditation and Nutritional approaches will be exemplified with real-world case studies.
