Zoom registration required. REGISTER

SPEAKER: Jodie Skillicorn, DO, ABIHM

TOPIC: Managing Depression Without Medications

Description: Antidepressants have become the first-line strategy for treating depressive symptoms, yet more and more data suggest that not only do these medications not work for most people but, for some, they actually cause more harm than good. This talk will address two of the primary root causes of depression, trauma and stress, and focus on the research behind other effective ways to manage depressive symptoms, including breathwork, mindfulness, exercise, nutrition, supplements, nature, avoiding toxins, and developing meaningful connections.

Bio: Dr. Jodie Skillicorn is board-certified in Psychiatry and Neurology, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine. She is the author of the book, Healing Depression Without Medications: A Psychiatrist’s Guide to Balancing Mind, Body, and Soul. At her private practice in Stow, Ohio, she integrates conventional medical training with evidence-based holistic methods that include breathwork, meditation, yoga, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Mind-Body Medicine, nutrition, supplements, and exercise. She believes strongly in the body’s ability to heal itself if given resources and support, and in the importance of empowering patients to take back their health through simple, but effective lifestyle changes.
