Anxiety & Depression

Are you one of the millions of Americans suffering from a mental illness that affects your ability to function well in your everyday life? Anxiety and depression can be signs of an underlying imbalance or even an autoimmune disease.

 

What if you could…

How Can Dr. Autoimmune Help?

There is hope for happiness. It takes courage and commitment as well as powerful knowledge, support, and tools from an expert. Dr. Autoimmune and his team incorporate functional medicine, functional neurology, functional nutrition, brain mapping, neurofeedback and customized chiropractic care to help people with both depression and anxiety.

Our featured service for depression and anxiety is neurofeedback. Neurofeedback training works on the root of the problem, altering the brain patterns that may be causing depression and anxiety. This program can restore healthy brain wave patterns and bring lasting brain changes. It is non-invasive and does not have negative side effects, making it a very powerful tool in the battle against depression.

Those with depression and/or anxiety usually notice improvement after only a few sessions, but for the brain to fully learn how to make healthier patterns consistently, a number of brain training sessions are required. We usually recommend 20-40. With practice, the brain learns to make these healthy patterns on its own and regulate mood independently. Neurofeedback can help depression and anxiety sufferers get their lives back and gain control.

Finding the Root Cause

We know that autoimmunity requires 3 things to develop:
1. Genetic predisposition
2. Leaky gut (a.k.a intestinal permeability)
3. An environmental trigger

It All Starts in the Gut!

gut microbes

Did you know we have a second brain? The second one, called our enteric nervous system, consists of some 100 million neurons that are in the walls of our gut. There are incredibly intricate interconnections between the brain and the gut and the vagus nerve (the nerve responsible for a lot of your thinking and brain function) connected from the top of your stomach, all the way up to your brain.

When your gut is unhappy, stressed, inflamed…your brain is unhappy or stressed. Inflammation in your gut sends signals to your brain, causing similar responses such as inflammation, stress, anxiety, depression and a host of other mental health issues.

By restoring healthy gut function, we can make a huge impact on mental function. This gut-brain connection may be the key to restoring your mental health!
