Naturopathic and Natural Mood Stabilization
Alternatives to prescription psychiatric medications do exist. In many cases both can be used together.
Psychiatric conditions that respond well to neurotransmitter therapy include: anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADD and ADHD.
Neurotransmitters are recognized as the primary biochemical messengers of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Studies have demonstrated that urinary neurotransmitter measures are reflective of circulating levels as evidenced by renal neurotransmitter clearance mechanisms. Laboratory methodology for the accurate assessment of urinary neurotransmitter levels has been established. Urinary measures are not recognized as a direct reflection of central activity, however definite associations exist. The ability to measure neurotransmitters has led to the generation of scientific literature that demonstrates urinary neurotransmitter measurements have clinical value as representative biomarkers of various neurological, immunological, and endocrinological conditions. Urinary neurotransmitter assessment carries a long history as a means to assess nervous system activity.
What is Naturopathic Oncology?
Naturopathic oncology specialists work with each patient and his/her oncology team to create an individualized, evidence-based, integrative, natural medicine treatment plan that is designed to strengthen and support the immune system, provide therapies with known anti-cancer properties and reduce the side effects associated with conventional cancer treatments.
Naturopathic oncology recommendations are intended to:
Speed recovery from surgery
Reduce side effects of chemotherapy and radiation (specific to the therapies used)
Provide immune support, appropriate for your type of cancer
Support and stimulate detoxification process of the body (when appropriate)
Provide support and care for any other healthcare needs during your treatment
Provide diet, lifestyle and supplement recommendations to help prevent recurrence of your disease
It is important to note that an “evidence based” approach should be taken when prescribing any natural therapies with conventional oncology treatments. Careful review of research is done by naturopathic oncology specialists to ensure that no substances are given with your chemotherapy, radiation treatment or surgery that could be potentially harmful; or lessen the desired effects and outcome of your treatment.
Constant diligence is required in reviewing current oncology research to make certain that no undesirable effects or interactions occur with the combining of naturopathic and conventional oncology treatments.
