What mental health services are available?

Healing Family Functional Medicine provides comprehensive, holistic mental health services for adults and children. Dr. Patel uses a range of functional medicine strategies to identify the root cause of mental health issues like:

  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Mood disorders
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Without proper management, mental health disorders can become progressively worse and increase your risk for self-harm, and suicidal thoughts or actions.

Dr. Patel takes a holistic approach to manage mental health issues. She incorporates lifestyle changes, diet improvements, and other functional medicine strategies that benefit your brain health and function.

What are the benefits of functional medicine for mental health?

The functional medicine services available at Healing Family Functional Medicine consider all factors that contribute to poor mental health, such as:

  • Epigenetics
  • Poor nutrition
  • Inactive lifestyle
  • Existing health conditions
  • Environmental toxin exposure

Rather than just masking the symptoms of a mental health condition, Dr. Patel offers functional medicine services to uncover and treat the underlying causes of anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.

She personalizes a care plan to protect your long-term mental health and prevent the return of symptoms, focusing on holistic lifestyle changes and better nutrition.

What can I expect during a mental health evaluation?

During your initial mental health evaluation at Healing Family Functional Medicine, Dr. Patel spends time reviewing your personal and family medical histories, lifestyle, diet, relationships, and other factors that play a role in your mental health.

She also completes a physical exam and may order:

  • Hormone panel
  • Epigenetics testing
  • Gut health assessment
  • Environmental toxin testing

Based on your exam and testing, Dr. Patel customizes a care plan to address your symptoms and improve your overall quality of life. Strategies she uses include nutritional counseling, lifestyle changes, and psychological counseling.

Additionally, Dr. Patel offers group visits for your whole family to assess the mental and behavioral health of you, your partner, and your children at the same time. She can help you strengthen your family dynamic and better manage stress to prevent further mental health distress.
