NUTRITIONAL TESTING AND EVALUATIONS

Nutritional deficiencies have been proven to have links to experiences of depression, anxiety, sleep disorders and fibromyalgia. Accurately understanding how your body reacts to different foods can be a frustrating process, but new scientific developments offer nutritional testing to help this process, therefore increasing the capacity to understand and nourish the body optimally.

Nutrition and Mental Health

Mind Body Psychiatry clinicians use nutritional testing to locate any nutritional deficiencies that may be contributing to unwanted symptoms. We then work with this information to determine nutrient status to guide personalized supplement and dietary recommendations.

Nutritional supplements are a tool to treat psychological and physical symptoms, often reducing or eliminating the need for other medications and therefore pose little risk for side effects. Dr. Lewis is board certified in Holistic and Integrative Medicine and will guide treatment to effectively determine any nutritional deficiencies or sensitivities to provide optimal nutritional suggestions. Our clinicians will collaborate with you to determine the most effective and realistic dietary plan, considering your individual needs, lifestyle and other symptoms.

Genetic Testing

Mind Body Psychiatry cherishes the individual, tailoring treatment to fit their personal needs of the body, mind and spirit. One method of learning about an individual’s path to optimal health is through genetic testing to guide and inform effective individualized treatment. Genetic testing contributes to understanding underlying biological tendencies in the body, including predispositions to specific symptoms or conditions. It can also inform which medications might interact most effectively with the individual’s body to decrease the risk of side effects and optimize effectiveness.

This type of test informs the treatment of many conditions, including:

  •  Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

  • Bipolar disorder

  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Autism

  • Schizophrenia

  • Chronic pain

  • Substance abuse
