Optimizing Mental Health With Michelle Loy, MD

Anxiety and depressive disorders account for the majority of cases of mental/emotional illness in our population, affecting people of all ages.

Integrative Medicine employs the best of conventional and traditional medicine in the treatment of symptoms and offers many non-pharmacological options besides or in addition to prescription anxiolytic and antidepressant medications.

In this series, you will learn the latest evidence-based medicine regarding the role of nutrition, sleep, vitamins, supplements, botanicals, mind-body skills, mindful movement, behavioral therapy, purpose inquiry, nature therapy, and community connection in the management and optimization of mental health. Research, resources, and practical tips will be discussed by Dr. Loy and a team of specialists including a mind-body specialist, yoga/somatic education therapist, acupuncturist/qi-gong instructor, registered dietician, pastoral care physician.

These tools will expand your internal resources including self-awareness, reflection, and emotion regulation and increase access and utilization of external resources in the community.

 

Information in this series will encourage an informed, thoughtful, and balanced approach to common mental health problems, identifying the approach blend of conventional and complementary approaches to safely and effectively address the your symptoms while taking into account personal preferences - an approach endorsed by the board of trustees of the American Psychiatric Association and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

 

As is standard practice, we advise that all patients continue to collaborate with a mental health specialist (psychiatrist, psychologist, or licensed counselor).
