In Bastyr Center’s Brain and Emotions Wellness appointments, clinicians can help patients of all ages explore natural treatment options for neurological and mental disorders, which are an important part of whole-person health.
Neurological disorders include such diagnoses as mild cognitive impairment or memory loss, Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, peripheral neuropathy, traumatic brain injury, migraines and chronic headaches, and more. Common mental disorders can include attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety disorders including panic attacks and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and insomnia.
In Brain and Emotions Wellness, patients will work with student clinicians and a supervising physician to develop a customized natural treatment approach. Treatment plans may include suggestions for nutrition, lifestyle modifications, herbal medicine, homeopathy or other natural products.
