Key learning outcomes:
- Biological underpinnings of mental health disorders with a focus on GIT mucosa
- Understanding how epithelial cells and GIT gets disrupted
- The role of dietary lectins in damaging GIT mucosal membranes and the epithelium
- The role of nutrient deficiencies in promoting epithelial disruptions
- Combining dietary changes with “specific nutrient supplements” in the treatments of IBS, health and mental health disorders
- Case studies will be presented to illustrate the principles discussed
In the last 20 years, there has been an explosion of interest in GUT-brain interaction and consequences of intestinal dysbiosis in general health and mental health in particular. We then started investigating the complex relationship between diet, nutritional status, intestinal dysbiosis, IBS and mental health disorders. Our focus has always been in attempting to treat the causes of these disorders.

Dr Duff is the founder and Clinical Director of the Behavioural Neurotherapy Clinic. From 1997 to 2010 he was involved in Clinical Neuroscience research at the Brain Sciences Institute, investigating "The Brain Electrical Activity of Boys with ADHD and its treatment using Neurotherapy". Dr Duff has analysed thousands of Quantitative EEG (QEEG) assessments to aid in the differential diagnosis of children with ADHD, ASD and Learning Difficulties and for adults with Traumatic Brain Injuries, PTSD, Psychiatric disorders, Depression and Anxiety.
In addition to his Psychological and Neuroscience practice, Dr Duff is passionate about nutrition. Dr Duff designed and implemented Smart-Ehealth, a cloud-based Clinic Management System software and research tool that collects clinical data in a database. In addition to running a clinic, it allows for easy “one-click” prescribing, treatment outcome monitoring and mining of data for research into effectiveness studies of interventions.
