  • Mental Health
    A balanced state of mental health is more than the absence of symptoms associated with mental illness. It includes the ability to regulate one’s psychological challenges.

    Our naturopathic doctors help patients with mental health challenges by identifying underlying triggers and factors that may be influencing or exacerbating psychological distress.

    Some common underlying factors include insufficient micronutrient intake, suboptimal lifestyle habits, use or abuse of substances, side effects from prescription drugs, and other medical conditions and diseases.

    We identify treatments and supports that may improve a patient’s capacity to handle stress. Naturopathic treatment options include nutritional supplementation, dietary and lifestyle modifications, and botanical medicines, among others.
