Statistics show that 70-80% or more of Americans are experiencing new or worsening symptoms of Anxiety, Depression and Insomnia right now.
These symptoms can effectively be helped with Naturopathic Medicine. Most often I will have a patient perform a urine Neurotransmitter to test to treat anxiety, depression, insomnia , fatigue, among other health concerns. Neurotransmitters are your brain chemicals, such as Serotonin, Dopamine, GABA, epinephrine, among others, and they can be tested easily at home. This information will then tell me exactly what an individual needs to balance their brain chemistry and ease their symptoms. A test kit can be obtained from my office or shipped directly from the lab to your house.
Naturopathic Physicians in Oregon are also able to prescribe traditional medications to treat depression, anxiety and insomnia. These medications may be needed in the short term to give you immediate relief but the real healing arises when we can test those brain chemicals and individually balance them out with more permanent solutions usually with amino acid therapy. This treats the cause of your symptoms for a long term solution.
If you are suffering or know someone who is, please call for a consultation as we are in the office daily to answer questions, to schedule new or existing patient phone or telemedicine consultations. Take good care!
