In the last couple of decades, more people are looking for natural medication remedies for depression or anxiety. Natural or “holistic” psychiatry is a form of mental health treatment that considers the whole person: body, mind, spirit, and psychology. Holistic psychiatric medication typically uses a combination of conventional, nutritional, and alternative medicine practices to help you restore and prolong your mental and physical health.
Holistic psychiatric medication management seeks to identify the root causes of mental health diagnoses or symptoms. Traditional psychiatric medication management often works to alleviate and treat symptoms. Natural remedies for depression or anxiety through holistic psychiatric med management seek to find the root cause and resolve symptoms from their core.
Typically, holistic psychiatric treatment is highly individualized. This means that each person as a unique individual with unique life experiences, needs, context, biochemical needs, and genetics. Medications or supplements may be prescribed in combination with other modalities to treat your unique mental health needs.
