Anxiety & Depression
Anxiety and depression often present a seemingly hopeless array of complex emotional and functional challenges that vary widely from person to person. However, positive change is possible when the true underlying causes of these symptoms can be identified and corrected to restore balance to the body and mind.
Dr. Powell specializes in treating both anxiety and depression, and uses gentle therapies to address underlying dysfunctions in the brain and other body systems. She gives each individual the tools to regain control of his or her physical and emotional wellness.
There are many facets of your health that should be explored to determine what dysfunctions or imbalances may be at the root of your symptoms. These include:
Neurotransmitter testing: Specialized testing reveals imbalances in the chemicals of your nervous system. Using gentle herbal remedies and nutritional therapies to restore equilibrium can provide rapid symptom relief that lasts.
Genetic testing and assessment: Our genes often predispose us to certain medical conditions or imbalances in our body chemistry. By assessing gene function, we can identify specific errors in your unique genes that make you more susceptible to experiencing anxiety, depression, or other mood changes. Gene testing can clue us in as to why you experience these symptoms and provide a highly specific, individualized approach to treating them.
Digestive healing: Over 80% of the hormones and chemicals involved in how you think and feel mentally are actually produced in your gut. By optimizing digestive function and reducing inflammation we can make profound changes in your mood, energy, motivation, and well-being.
