Does food matter if we can just give meds?
What are Dr Zehring’s two pillars that we need for meds to work?
The starved brain becomes anxious/obsessive, team using the same language is important
The focus is to get nutritional rehabilitation first
Empowering clients to open up teaches us so much
The “Core Four” – primary care, therapy, dietitian, psychiatry
What about appetite and Adderall?
Medication compliance decreases the more often people have to take them
It’s a difficult field, this is going to take time – how do I walk alongside
Sit in the messiness of the powerlessness
Do no harm.
Dr Zehring’s Seasonings:
- Reach out to colleagues to fill in the gaps. Two who are instrumental are Dr. Jennifer Gaudiani and Dr. Margherita Mascalo
- Using common language – be persistent in collaboration
- CBT-I – Sleep is important
Brad Zehring, DO is a Board-Certified Psychiatrist and Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology who specializes in the treatment of eating disorders and co-occurring psychiatric disorders. He completed his psychiatry residency from the University of Arizona – Phoenix Campus.

More recently, he has begun the next chapter of his career as Chief Medical Officer for Montare Behavioral Health and Trellis Recovery Centers where he can continue his focus on leadership, mentoring, and expert psychiatric care to patients with psychiatric disorders and eating disorders.
