Functional Medicine for Anxiety & Depression
Finding Help For Anxiety & Depression
Over 40 million adults experience anxiety and depression daily. These mental illnesses can be disabling to one’s overall quality of life. Standard treatments like medications are not always effective and at least 70 percent of patients currently on medication continue experiencing depression symptoms weekly. Current treatments are not enough. We take a functional medicine approach to depression and anxieties to focus on finding out the root cause of your symptoms and focusing on natural treatments that work!

Understanding Depression and Your Health
Feelings of anxiety or panic can cause anyone to shut down. If life feels too heavy or just too much, call us! There is help for feelings of hopelessness and despair, and our treatments are not just going to mask the problem like other treatments! Functional medicine provides a new approach to treating depression and anxiety. At Regeneration Health, we focus on treating the body as a whole, not just treating the symptoms.

As we identify the real problems causing depression symptoms to occur, we can help you reclaim your life. Our experts typically begin by recommending dietary changes, nutritional supplements, hormone replacement therapy, exercise modifications, and lifestyle changes. As the body ages, our hormone levels will change, which can increase problems with anxiety and depression in men. By performing a series of hormone tests and meeting with you to discuss your symptoms and your overall health, we can identify why you are experiencing these issues and start treating them correctly.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for Anxiety and Depression
When hormonal fluctuations occur, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can provide relief for men. Hormone replacement therapy can improve symptoms of depression and anxiety in addition to addressing problems with sexual dysfunction, stress management, and weight control. We start HRT by having an open discussion about what is happening with your health. WE talk about all of the symptoms you have been experiencing over the last few years and hormonal changes, lifestyle changes, and other influences that could impact your mental health. We will do hormone testing and find out what hormone you may be lacking. In men, it is common to see problems with low testosterone, especially as we age. Keeping your testosterone levels balanced is vital to treating depression and anxiety, along with treating other issues like sexual dysfunction and hair loss.
When you visit our Ogden health clinic, our experts will perform hormone testing to identify testosterone levels and other hormones that impact your mental health. Contact our office to schedule a consultation and begin living your life without feeling daily symptoms of depression and anxiety.
