Mental Wellness

Our mental health program combines the best of conventional and holistic modalities to offer patients better mental health care. We evaluate the whole person/child, body, mind, and spirit before determining the right course of treatment. We incorporate safe, effective treatments into our mental wellness program such as nutrition, acupuncture, herbs, mind-body approaches, meditation, supplements, spirituality and massage therapy. As a pioneer in this field, my team and I examine every medical and spiritual option available for the individual patient to maximize the benefit and safety. We are firm believers in family centered care and a collaborative model that puts you at the center of all treatment decisions.

What Triggers Mental Health Conditions?

Physical illness and psychological symptoms are often caused by imbalances in the body. A common contributor to mental health conditions such as irritability, depression, anxiety and ADHD, (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), is a poor diet. Years of consuming the wrong foods can create allergies and sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, Candida overgrowth, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and hormonal imbalances, all of which can impair healthy brain function. The brain requires a regular supply of adequate nutrients. Without these nutrients, one’s emotions, perception and behavior can be affected. One may develop symptoms – mild to severe—that range from simple melancholy to anxiety, autism, hyperactivity, obsessive compulsive conditions, learning problems, drug and alcohol addiction, and even schizophrenia.

Eight key factors that may cause or intensify mental health conditions are:

  1. Blood toxicity, resulting from heavy metals or environmental chemicals (especially lead and mercury)
  2. Improper diet, particularly poor quality or processed foods, or foods containing wheat, gluten, sugar, artificial sweeteners and dairy products (to which many people are highly sensitive)
  3. Lack of exercise
  4. Drug and alcohol use and abuse
  5. Hormonal or chemical imbalances in the body
  6. Psychological factors, including traumatic events, prolonged untreated stress, self-destructive beliefs, serious financial hardships, etc.
  7. Genetics as evidenced by a family history of mental health conditions or hormonal imbalances
  8. Lack of support from family, community or spiritual groups
