Managing and maintaining emotional wellness
Emotional wellness doesn’t mean we don’t feel difficult emotions; rather, we understand our emotions as they arise, and feel able to manage and attend to them.
Impossible to disconnect, the health of our mind and body are intertwined. At Integrative, we aim to discover the imbalances with mind, body, and spirit that are affecting your emotional wellness. From there, we can create a unique treatment plan to improve and enhance your mental health.
Signs and Symptoms
When we think of health, our physical body may be the first thing that comes to mind. But our emotional health is a crucial component to our health. At times, we feel the effects of our emotions within our physical body; additionally, imbalances with our physical body can deeply affect our emotions.
If you are experiencing any of these signs and symptoms, you may benefit from a plan aimed at improving your emotional wellness:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Other mood disorders
- Insomnia (onset or offset)
- Nervousness, heart palpitations, teeth grinding
- Tension headaches
- Emotional outbursts, unstable moods
- Intense irritability or rage
An Integrative Approach To Mental Health
At Integrative, our treatment protocols vary with each patient based on their symptoms, history, and lifestyle. We aim to identify the root cause - the core imbalances that are interfering with emotional wellness.
Your doctor will recommend testing methods to identify the root cause. These methods may include:
What does your first visit look like?
Your first visit is the opportunity for you to share your health goals, and for your doctor to gather vital health information that will help them to determine the root cause of your health concerns and the best treatment plan for you.
Complete Medical & Lifestyle History
Your doctor will take a complete history, gathering details regarding your current and past health concerns, lifestyle, as well as current supplements and medications.
If needed, your doctor will recommend additional tests, either at Integrative or with your medical doctor. They may requisition results from tests you’ve completed in the past.
For example, your doctor may recommend a neurotransmitter panel to investigate your brain and nervous system chemistry, or they may request a Nerve Express test to evaluate your nervous system activity.
Your Treatment Plan
Every patient is unique. Your doctor will develop a treatment plan that addresses the root cause of your health concerns.
Your treatment plan may include a variety of tools, including:
We may recommend a plan to eliminate foods you are sensitive to, balance your blood sugar, or emphasize certain macro and micronutrients.
Your doctor may recommend specific herbal, nutritional, or energetic remedies, found in our Integrative Dispensary.
