Holistic treatment of depression, sudden or chronic
10% off Your First Appointment with a Licensed Naturopathic Doctor…Where Health is About YOU!
At Bukovina, we believe that having depression and the numerous symptoms associated with it is not something you have to live with. While medications may help, they do not offer a cure, and they certainly are not without their side-effects. Perhaps it is time for you to find some real answers. Depression is often a result of an imbalance in your stress hormones. We all have stress in our lives and sometimes you've had so much that your body gets to a point where it just can't take any more. It doesn't have to be one big stress that caused these feelings for you. It is often just that one day you reach that proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back". While depression may be the most pressing issue, it is commonly not the only symptom you are experiencing. One example is that depression symptoms often accompany anxiety and what many people don't realize is that they are two ends of the same hormonal spectrum. The great news is that those imbalances are completely fixable! And, because we are basically health detectives, we can help you find the stressor that caused that imbalance and eliminate it too.
not your average medical appointment. Welcome to naturopathic medicine! You will spend 90 minutes with the doctor. During this time she will discuss your concerns, obtain a complete history and ask you all kinds of questions that you may not even think are relevant. She may order some lab-work and do any exams that seem necessary. All of this is because our goal, as naturopathic doctors, is to get to the cause of the problem, not simply treat the symptoms. If you think about it, it’s pretty logical. If you fix the cause of the problem, the symptoms go away. And, that is what we specialize in.
Another thing we do is a lot of explaining. You didn’t go to medical school, so you shouldn’t be expected to understand the crazy intricacies of how your body works. You will leave your appointment with an understanding of
why you have the symptoms you are experiencing and how, by treating the underlying cause, you can watch your symptoms and your overall health improve.
In case you are wondering, we, as naturopathic doctors, are actual doctors. We went to specialized medical schools, passed board exams and are licensed by the State. This is very different from those who just call themselves “naturopaths”. And, again as naturopathic doctors, we treat people, not diseases or illnesses or conditions. What that means is that while you may have ADD, it is only one thing about you. Your treatment plan will be aimed at your overall health.
