(Including: Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder)

Mood and psychological illnesses are often conventionally viewed as either exclusively psychologically mediated (if mild), or influenced as well by neurochemistry, sometimes understood to derive from deficiencies or excesses of neurotransmitters. From an integrative perspective, we understand such illnesses as being profoundly dependent on both mind and body, in much the same way that we understand cognitive/neurological illnesses (see Cognitive/Neurological).

As practitioners, our role in support of healing is to promote reduction in inflammation and increase in capacity for neurogenesis and neuroplasticity through gut healing, promotion of health metabolism and obesity reduction, promotion of physical and cognitive exercise, support for healthy patterns of psycho/spiritual experience, and use of nutrients and supplements (oral and intravenous) to clear toxicity and promote healthy neuronal functioning.
