Emotional Health

Emotional health and well-being involve more than a prescription pad.

While there is clearly a role for medication in treating conditions such as depression and anxiety, many conventional practitioners fail to recognize the many other factors involved in supporting emotional and mental health.

Dr. Nielsen’s “whole body” approach to emotional health digs deeper to determine root causes of emotional imbalance, such as:

  • Nutritional Deficiencies
  • Inflammation
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Gut Health
  • Interpersonal Relationships
  • Hormone Imbalances
  • Genetic Predisposition
  • Toxicity

When it comes to formulating a treatment plan, a variety of options are may be considered, including:

  • Dietary changes, including types of foods and timing of meals
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Herbal therapies
  • Exercise recommendations
  • Holistic therapies such as Acupuncture and/or Massage
  • Mindfulness Meditation Training and/or breathwork
  • Referral for counseling
  • Adjustment of Prescription Medication
