Prominent Psychiatrist Offers Free Conference Call on Obesity, Diabetes and Mental Health

Whole Psychiatry founder, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Georgetown University Medical School, Master Clinician in functional medicine by the Institute for Functional Medicine, Dr. Robert Hedaya, has created a monthly series of free to the public workshops by phone conference calls to provide the information and support to health-seeking individuals who want to be have more energy, more vitality, and take fewer medications.

Chevy Chase, MD, May 27, 2010 --( Obesity is an epidemic, so much so that Michelle Obama has made combating childhood obesity her priority. Weight gain, insulin resistance, and Type 2 diabetes are clearly linked to worsening mental health.

This growing (no pun intended) problem of epidemic proportions, now affects all segments of the American population, however it is particularly relevant for those with depression, anxiety and many other mental health problems. Diabetes often goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless (increased urination, feeling thirsty often, gaining weight, increased hunger, slow healing of cuts and bruises).

Education is power and Dr. Hedaya is on a mission to empower as many people as possible to enjoy better health during his 30-minute Lunch & Learn workshops by phone.

Understanding the nature of insulin resistance, the precursor to Type 2 diabetes, how to diagnose it, and how to cure (yes, cure) it is life-changing information. Dr. Hedaya’s workshops by phone re-energize people’s desire to get back on track. He links the mind-body connection in a way everyone can understand.

The focus of the next call on June 2nd, 2010 will be 12:00 -12:30 PM Eastern time and will address the following:

- How obesity, insulin and diabetes are related to mental health
- Non-medicinal ways to CURE type two diabetes, while reducing the risk of other chronic illnesses (such as osteoporosis)
- The best lab tests to see how far along the road to diabetes you are
