Learn About our Holistic Approach to Treating Anxiety and Depression

It is totally normal to have ups and downs in life. However, if you’ve noticed that your low moods are lasting more than a couple of days, or if your anxiety keeps recurring and interfering with your daily life, it may be time to consider seeking medical treatment.

Depression affects approximately 16 million adults in the United States every year, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, research has shown that around 50% of individuals who are diagnosed with depression are also diagnosed with anxiety disorder.

Fortunately, many treatments can address your symptoms and keep you thriving. Led by Naima Cheema, MD, the compassionate providers at Nexclin Medicine are skilled in delivering a holistic approach to your treatment.

Effective mental health treatment is dynamic

Because no two people are alike, the appropriate treatment will require a tailored approach based on the patient. Broadly, Nexclin Medicine promotes a dynamic clinical approach to depression and anxiety, which includes:

Keep in mind that not all of these treatments likely will apply to you! Depending on your specific lifestyle, including your medical history, symptomatology, and personal preferences, we will develop an individualized treatment plan to support you in meeting your wellness objectives.

Psychotherapy is a speaking-based, one-on-one treatment

Psychotherapy sounds like a complicated word, but really it refers to behavior-based mental health treatment. For anxiety and depression, this usually means scheduling you for a regular appointment with one of our providers who are skilled in therapeutic techniques.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the techniques we recommend for our patients. In this method, we speak with you candidly over multiple sessions to identify patterns of thinking, and seek to work together to dismantle the structures and beliefs behind negative thought patterns. If you have specific therapy preferences, we also take this into account.

Many medications are available for anxiety and depression

Along with psychotherapy, we may recommend that you begin a course of anti-depression or anti-anxiety medications. Thanks to medical research, there are a plethora of options, and the specific prescription depends on your personal circumstances to determine your treatment plan.

Lifestyle changes can improve your symptoms

In addition to therapy, and perhaps medications, you may also find it useful to consult our providers for specific lifestyle change consultations. For example, we may use sessions to discuss stress management techniques, conduct an analysis of your lifestyle and potential pressure points, or work on ways to solidify what you have learned in therapy, and find a way to translate it into your everyday life.

Nutritional and hormonal care is an additional option

During our initial consultations, we conduct advanced testing to determine whether nutritional, genetic, or hormonal factors could be contributing to your anxiety or depression symptoms. If so, we have multiple treatments to promote balance in your life, whether it’s designing a comprehensive nutritional plan or integrating hormonal supplements.

With the right treatment, you can combat the symptoms of anxiety and depression and reintroduce a sense of balanced wellness into your life. Call or book online to schedule a consultation with Nexclin Medicine today.
