In this presentation, Food Mood Expert Trudy Scott will delve into the current evidence surrounding the connection between food and mood and discuss recent studies that support this for anxiety disorders.
How to maintain a healthy and stable mood will be discussed, offering solutions for the food-mood connection such as which foods to eat, specific foods to avoid, the importance of food quality, individual nutrients to supplement, as well as considering the biochemical individuality of each individual. This presentation will provide the science behind the effects of foods on anxiety, social phobia and panic attacks. It will also address the benefits of foods and nutrients on health issues that often go hand-in-hand with anxiety disorders such as depression, addictions, emotional eating, digestive disorders and sleep disorders.
An editorial in the American Journal of Psychiatry offered a very powerful comment on three food-mood studies: "It is both compelling and daunting to consider that dietary intervention at an individual or population level could reduce rates of psychiatric disorders. There are exciting implications for clinical care, public health, and research".

An Insider’s Point of View on the Nutritional Supplement Industry – Part Two

Please join us on Tuesday January 21st, 2014 at 4 PM Pacific / 7 PM Eastern as we host Jeffrey Moss, DDS, CNS, DACBN for Part Two of the webinar entitled “An Insider’s Point of View on the Nutritional Supplement Industry.”

In this two part webinar Dr. Jeffrey Moss discusses many of the issues and controversies involving nutritional supplements. Having worked in the nutritional supplement industry since 1985 and the founder of Moss Nutrition Products, Inc. in 1992, Dr. Moss has the experience, qualifications and insider’s knowledge to present information that most of us never hear about and need to know.

The goal of this presentation is to provide information that is not readily accessible to healthcare providers or the general public about nutritional supplements.

Part one of this webinar focused on the introduction of ethical issues within the supplement industry and identified problems. In Part two Dr. Moss will delve into the solutions.

Part two will include a discussion on the difficulties finding researched information about the supplement industry, how supplements are formulated and manufactured, and the selling practices of supplement companies and healthcare professionals. A description of the manufacturing process, who is manufacturing our supplements, what type of facilities they are made in, and where the raw ingredients come from, will be presented. How the industry is regulated, what makes a product manufacturer or supplement company reputable, and product quality will be addressed. The ethics, legal regulations, and clinical issues surrounding the sale of nutritional products will be included. 

As health professionals and informed consumers we want to know about our food supply, where food comes from, and how it was grown or prepared. We need to know as much about our supplements. This presentation is a great opportunity to learn important information that will support our decisions about the use of, education about, and the selling of supplements.

Dr. Moss graduated from the University of Michigan Dental School in 1974 and practiced dentistry in Grand Rapids, Michigan up to 1985.  Having employed clinical nutrition in his practice for six years, he decided to use this experience and enter the professional supplement industry. In 1992 he founded Moss Nutrition Products, Inc., which provides nutritional supplements to health care professionals.  In addition, since 1987 he has written a monthly newsletter for professionals of review and commentary on many of the most controversial and cutting-edge issues that face clinical nutrition practitioners today.  He also co-authored the text, Textbook of Nutritional Medicine with Mel Werbach, M.D.  Finally, Dr. Moss has been a member of the faculty of the University of Bridgeport Masters program in nutrition since 1999.
