When a patient is fatigued, their quality of life suffers. Morning routines may turn into energy-draining chores, work can become unbearable, and personal relationships might decline. Fatigue ranks as one of the most frustrating symptoms for people. One of the key recommendations for patients with fatigue has been exercise, yet for some patients, that may worsen symptoms. One underlying cause of fatigue is mitochondrial dysfunction, and we now know fatigue is a frequent symptom in mitochondrial disease. 

Low levels of the cellular energy currency adenosine triphosphate (ATP) lead to having weak metabolism and feeling “slow”; more ATP allows us to experience life with more energy and vitality. Improving mitochondrial function, or correcting dysfunction, can increase the amount of ATP energy available for use by cells and improve fatigue symptoms. 

Finding the underlying cause of fatigue and designing an individualized treatment plan that addresses the root cause of it is the first step to improving quality of life. 

Mental health disorders, including depression and anxiety, continue to skyrocket worldwide. Depression and anxiety are multifactorial conditions that may have many different triggers. We offer a multi-pronged approach to brain health, engaging in a therapeutic partnership with our patients which allows us to address their needs. 

There are many factors that affect brain health, and we will look at all the factors involved including vitamin status, amino acids, minerals, adrenal issues, hormone imbalances and the gut microbiome. 

For patients who have tried several different antidepressants to no avail, other therapeutic interventions such as diet may yield better results. Evidence suggests that if appropriate for an individual patient, the dietary or supplemented intake of certain nutrients, may be protective against depression development risk or reduce depressive and anxiety symptoms. 

We look for the root cause of symptoms to navigate a path to recovery. Our comprehensive programs address: 

  • Food sensitivities 
  • Gut imbalances 
  • Nutrient deficiencies 
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Adrenal issues
