Studies indicate that half of all Americans will experience one or more mental illnesses at some point in their lifetime.  If you suffer from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, anger, eating problems, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-partum depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, PMS, schizophrenia, seasonal affective disorder, addiction, sleep problems, or just stress, you are not alone.  Mental health disorders are at epidemic levels today.  And the impact they have on people, relationships, businesses, and society as a whole is staggering.

 

Mental health challenges have never been more commonplace.  It's not merely the result of increased awareness and social acceptance.  It's not just a matter of better diagnosis.  It's not just more stress, although we have plenty of that. 

Americans have been through economic depression, world wars, political upheavals, and ever-accelerating societal changes.  Our forefathers lost many children in infancy, mothers in childbirth, fathers in wars and farm accidents, and many family members from pneumonia, cholera, and other infectious diseases.  They lost their livelihoods to fires, floods, and droughts.  They had plenty of reasons to become depressed, anxious, or to develop PTSD.  But few did.

By contrast, such problems are so common today that people talk to friends and coworkers about taking antidepressants as if they were vitamins.  Weekly visits to therapists have become as much a part of life as going grocery shopping.

Why the Epidemic?

You may be tempted to think your mental health challenges are simply a fact of life.  If you have been dealing with them since childhood, you may believe they are your lot in life, or even that everyone feels this way.

But you don't have to live this way.  Simply recognizing that the incidence of mental disorders has skyrocketed sheds some light on the problem.  One thing that has changed over the last several decades is an explosion of toxicity.  This has affected our food supply, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the airwaves that surround us, the places we sleep, the places we work, etc.  Between chemicals of every kind (all of them untested for human safety), heavy metals (we all have them in some degree), electromagnetic pollution (you can't go anywhere without being bombarded with wi fi EMFs), and biotoxins like mold, it's a miracle that anyone's brain still works at all.

Another common factor is deficiences of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, and hormones.  According to U.S. Government reports, the nutrient content of today's food supply is a shadow of its former self as we have prioritized quantity over quality of food produced.

There are many other factors involved in this problem.

Current Thinking

If you have been to a regular doctor for this problem, you were likely asked a few questions before being sent on your way with a prescription for an antidepressant.  Alternatively, you may have been advised to see a therapist.  The latter approach would certainly be appropriate if you experienced trauma or had unhealthy thought patterns.  But it may not be enough because you likely have other contributing factors that enabled a traumatic or stressful experience to push you over the edge.

A Different Approach

People who come to Prestige Wellness Institute aren't looking for the magic pill that their own doctor didn't know about.  They are looking for a comprehensive solution that identifies and treats all the factors that contribute to mental health challenges.  If they are already in therapy, they are looking for tools to accelerate the progress of therapy.  They are also looking for treatments that improve their physical health so that, as they get their mental health back, they can go back to the activities they used to enjoy.

At Prestige Wellness Institute, your treatment program begins with a comprehensive evaluation aimed at identifying the imbalances, deficiencies, toxicities, infections, and unhealthy thought patterns that are keeping you from functioning well and enjoying life as you deserve to.

Second, you begin to address the identified underlying problems, removing toxins and restoring critical nutrients and hormones.

Third, you take advantage of brain health-enhancing tools specific to your needs, such as revolutionary microcurrent neurofeedback, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, perception-reframing therapy, and treatment with signalling molecules.

If you are tired of functioning below your capacity  and recognize you have a right to peace and joy (which you do), call Prestige Wellness Institute to get started on a path to healing.
