One in five American adults suffer from a diagnosable mental illness and sadly, more than 120 American lives are lost each day by suicide. Naturopathic physicians are trained in the assessment and diagnosis of mental health concerns including Anxiety, Depression, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Bipolar Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD), Trauma Disorders (including PTSD), ADHD and Addiction. We understand that the mind-body connection is complex and take a holistic approach to restore the nervous system and rebalance the hormonal effects of stress. Specific mind-body treatments offered may include mindfulness, relaxation, breathing exercises, tapping, guided imagery, biofeedback, hypnosis or counseling. But the mind and body also respond very well to optimal diet and exercise, homeopathy, acupuncture, and targeted herbs or nutritional supplements. In cases where pharmaceuticals are recommended, naturopathic medicine can work synergistically to enhance efficacy and reduce unwanted effects of those medications.
