Functional Medicine for Mood Disorders | Dr. Sarah Washatka

The primary goal of functional medicine is to investigate the root cause of both physical and mental health concerns. By doing so, a doctor can treat the underlying cause of an issue rather than just treating the symptoms. Functional medicine has proven itself to be highly beneficial in treating mood disorders in children, adolescents, and adults. In many cases, mood disorders are caused by chemical and hormonal imbalances. These imbalances can be tricky to uncover. However, once the chemical and hormonal levels reach a healthy state through treatment, mood disorders often disappear.

In addition to treating various mood disorders through restoring balance to the various systems of the body, Dr. Sarah Washatka seeks to educate her patients about healthy lifestyle habits. Practicing these important habits such as healthy eating, appropriate physical exercise, and having a proper response to stress can reduce both mental and physical ailments.
By combining alternative and holistic approaches to medical treatment, Dr. Sarah Washatka creates an individualized treatment plan for each patient. This treatment plan intentionally focuses on healing the body as a whole and restoring complete mental and physical wellness.

Treating Mood Disorders

The conventional approach to treating mood disorders in children, adolescents, and adults is typically to prescribe an assortment of medications to mask the symptoms. Although these medications may be necessary in some cases, there are many individuals who experience side-effects that are greater than the relief that the medication provides. In addition to the numerous side-effects of the medication that treats mood disorders, the cost of prescription medication is high. By working with a functional medicine specialist such as Dr. Sarah Washatka, you can save yourself years of taking artificial substances that are only meant to treat the symptoms rather than addressing the cause of your mood disorder.
