Functional medicine has shown great success in treating various mood disorders in both children and adults. Mood disorders of all types can disrupt your normal way of life, affecting both your physical and emotional wellbeing in addition to your mental health. By using alternative and holistic approaches to treatment, Dr. Washatka can treat mood disorders, enabling you to live a happy and whole life once again.
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 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 by restoring balance to the various body systems, Dr. Washatka seeks to educate her patients about healthy lifestyle habits. Practicing these essential habits such as healthy eating, appropriate physical exercise, and proper stress response can reduce mental and physical ailments.
By combining alternative and holistic approaches to medical treatment, Dr. 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 various medications to mask the symptoms. Although these medications may be necessary in some cases, many individuals experience side effects more significant than the relief that the medicine 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. 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.
Balancing Your Body & Mind
Functional medicine is becoming increasingly popular in treating mood disorders in children, teens, and adults.

Whether it requires balancing crucial chemical and hormonal levels of the body and brain or instilling healthy lifestyle habits, functional medicine can provide relief to people of all ages suffering from the effects of a mood disorder in their life.
