Medication can be a powerful means of restoring balance when emotional or mental symptoms are causing distress. A careful diagnostic assessment helps to determine if medication may be helpful, and what type would be best tailored to a given person’s needs. In subsequent follow-up visits, the prescribing clinician will monitor the individual’s condition and adjust medication as needed.
A multifaceted approach to symptoms can be powerful, working at the psychological level through psychotherapy, at the physical level through diet, exercise, and medication, and at both levels through mind-body balancing practices such as meditation or yoga.
