Functional medicine practices are geared towards identifying root causes, rather than merely band-aiding symptoms. While prescription medications can improve those symptoms (at times at the cost of unwanted side effects), there are many underlying factors that greatly contribute to our mental health.
These can include various imbalances, hormones, nutritional deficiencies, toxins, infections, gut health, inflammation, genetic mutations, environmental factors, and more.
Advanced blood work testing may be done to discover and correct these issues that can wreak havoc on our mental well-being.
Utilizing diet, supplements/herbs when appropriate, clearing out infections/toxins, breath work, vasovagal exercises, grounding, circadian rhythm setting, ancestral tenants, and mind/body medicine can produce profound results with the guidance of a trained provider.
