Anxiety and Depression Diagnosis and Treatment
Anxiety and depression are the most common disorders and leading causes of disability worldwide. While many factors affect our mental health, research has proven that up to 90% of serotonin, our “happy hormone”, is produced by our intestinal cells. This tells us that positive mental health starts in the digestive system. Even more, the majority of patients diagnosed with major illnesses like autoimmune disease or cancer can recall a stressful event that triggered a decline in their health status. This is why managing our anxiety and depression can be critical in preventing further chronic diseases. It is important to look at mental health from a holistic perspective. Nutritional deficiencies, imbalances of bacteria in the digestive tract, and even mold exposure are common themes we see in patients with mental health struggles. Furthermore, Biosound Therapy is another service we offer at our clinic to help manage stress, addictions, anxiety, and depression. The BioSound System is a vibrational platform that utilizes choreographed music that is synchronized with low frequency sine tones and binaural beats. This induces a theta level meditative state that synchronizes the nervous system and enhances the parasympathetic system (our relaxation system). The vibrational tones can also help relieve pain while the low harmonic frequencies induce a natural relaxation response.
