Brain and Emotional Health

What can be more important than the health of one’s brain? Sadly, safe-guarding this precious organ has not been a priority. At times we feed ourselves and our children junk foods and gain too much weight. We often do not get enough exercise and spend too much time watching television. We get exposed to toxic chemicals in our homes and environments. Sadly, all of these are factors in the development of cognitive decline and mood disorders. And the solution is much more complex than simply prescribing a pill.

Brain health is something cultivated from the time of conception onward, but since we cannot turn back the clock, we work with each person to identify the problematic lifestyle issues, hormonal and chemical imbalances now present, and the level of motivation possessed by each individual.

Each person receives a thorough evaluation. Then we design an individualized plan of treatment. It may include prescription pharmaceuticals, but it will certainly go far beyond such treatments and the goal is to use prescription meds for the shortest time necessary to accomplish our therapeutic goals. The therapeutic plan may include any of the following: pharmaceuticals, hormonal treatments, nutritional supplements and herbs, Chinese Medicine, Reiki, cognitive behavioral therapy and hypnosis, biofeedback, massage, GI detoxification, and homeopathy.
