For Depression and Anxiety at COHA
Depression and/or anxiety is a common problem with multiple causes. Medications can be helpful, but sometimes cause disturbing side effects. Sometimes herbal preparations and nutritional supplements can be substituted for medications. We also can measure neurotransmitters and prescribe combinations of amino acids to improve depression. The Alpha-Stim machine can be very helpful.
Depression can be caused by toxins and allergies. We do testing for these problems and for yeast or bacterial imbalance. Thyroid and/or adrenal deficiencies can cause depression.
All of these problems can be treated with natural substances. Bipolar depression is more difficult to treat, and normally requires at least some medication. Our goal is to get a great result without side effects, and most of the time we can achieve that goal.
