What is mental health?

Your mental health refers to your emotional and psychological state affecting your physical body, or vice versa. While everyone’s emotions fluctuate on a daily or even hourly basis, you might become concerned if you start to experience negative feelings all the time. 

At Las Vegas Integrative Medicine, Dr. Lee-Sedera can evaluate your mental health and explore many factors contributing to your emotions and behaviors. She discusses your lifestyle and identifies how it influences your mental wellbeing. 

Based on a comprehensive assessment, Dr. Lee-Sedera develops an individualized integrative care plan to improve your mood and help you get back to your normal daily life with a better state of mind. 

What are common mental health conditions?

 

The team at Las Vegas Integrative Medicine understands that mental health is complex, and conditions usually don’t arise because of a single component of your life by itself. By taking everything that affects your health into consideration, they can help you find ways to manage:

Depression

Depression is more than just a bad day here and there. It’s a mental health diagnosis that involves persistent feelings of hopelessness, sadness, emptiness, and a loss of interest in the things you usually enjoy. 

Anxiety 

Anxiety is a natural response to stress or anticipation that everyone feels from time to time. However, if you feel worried, apprehensive, or downright fearful all the time, you might have an anxiety disorder. 

Stress

Stress is not a mental health diagnosis, but it is a major contributing factor to anxiety, depression, loss of motivation, and generally poor mental health. While a little stress isn’t bad for you, too much stress can be detrimental to your health and thus, is known as a “silent killer.”

How can I manage my mental health?

Dr. Lee-Sedera at Las Vegas Integrative Medicine helps you manage your mental health without relying on pharmaceutical prescription medications unless it is necessary. She and her team provide individualized care using an integrative and holistic approach with consideration to your individual needs and circumstances.

Typically, mental health responds well to natural approaches when addressed comprehensively along with other possible contributing factors, such as physical health status. At times, it may be necessary to continue working with other physicians or therapists for the best and safe outcome.

The goal of holistic mental health care is to help you function and feel your best without the need for prescriptions. In order to achieve the goal, Dr. Lee-Sedera and her team may also recommend lifestyle changes like nutrition and exercise, or offer pharmaceutical-grade herbal supplements.

Certain naturopathic techniques and acupuncture can help reduce stress as well as symptoms of anxiety and depression.
