A Functional Medicine Approach to Binge Eating and Food Addiction
James M. Greenblatt, MD
In this webinar, James M. Greenblatt, MD, explores the clinical challenges of treating Binge Eating Disorder and illuminates an evidence-based functional medicine model for treatment. The New Hope Model integrates lab testing, nutritional supplementation, dietary modifications, and medication. It targets biochemical pathways that regulate appetite, allowing clinicians to address imbalances, including poor digestion, that perpetuate hunger and cravings and bring patients back into balance.
