Functional Medicine for Mood Disorders in Kansas


We can help with anxiety, depression, ADHD, chronic stress, insomnia, Alzheimer’s prevention, and more.

When we talk about mental health, we often describe depression, anxiety, or mood swings as conditions to be managed. But what if there was a deeper underlying factor causing your challenges? In most cases, improving all areas of health will directly impact your mental health.

With functional medicine, we look at all possible causes of mood disorders. Perhaps your hormones are out of balance. Poor sleep could be at play. Even nutritional deficiencies can cause us to feel less motivated and less likely to enjoy activities like we used to.

And at EvoHealth, we believe in natural approaches. Other doctors over-rely on pharmaceuticals, which may not address the underlying causes of these conditions. But we look to help your body heal on its own. Functional medicine can be an empowering and effective tool in addressing mood disorders and anxiety, and if you want to learn more, give our team a call today.

If you live in Kansas, you can find affordable and accessible care for your mood disorders.

Root Causes of Mood Disorders and Anxiety

Our emotions and mental health have complicated relationships with our bodies. Sometimes underlying biological factors can lead to depression or anxiety. But sometimes our mood disorders have negative effects on our physical health. Everyone is unique, which is why you need a functional medicine doctor to start from square one and determine the causes of your challenges.   While there is no single cause for mood disorders and anxiety, several factors can contribute to their development. These may include genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalances, chronic inflammation, gut dysbiosis, nutritional deficiencies, environmental toxins, and chronic stress. Functional medicine seeks to identify and address these root causes to provide long-term relief and support.




A Personalized Approach Tailored to Your Emotional and Physical Needs

One of the fundamental principles of functional medicine is individuality. Each person is unique, and your mental health concerns should be approached accordingly. Dr. Wilson will make sure to spend time with all patients, conducting comprehensive assessments that consider medical history, lifestyle factors, genetic predispositions, and environmental influences. While he is not a therapist, he aims to gain a deeper understanding of each patient’s unique circumstances.

All mood disorder wellness plans will be built upon the following foundations.

Nutrition and Gut Health

The gut-brain axis is a bidirectional communication network between the gut and the brain. Mounting evidence suggests that imbalances in the gut microbiome can impact mental health. Functional medicine recognizes the importance of nutrition and gut health in mental well-being. A personalized dietary approach, focusing on whole foods, can help reduce inflammation, stabilize blood sugar levels, and support neurotransmitter production.

Furthermore, Dr. Wilson may recommend targeted supplements to address specific nutrient deficiencies that can contribute to mood disorders and anxiety. For example, omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, magnesium, and vitamin D are essential nutrients for brain health and have been shown to play a role in mood regulation.

Lifestyle Modifications

Functional medicine recognizes the influence of lifestyle factors on mental health. Adequate sleep, regular exercise, stress management techniques, and healthy relationships are all crucial components of overall well-being. Functional medicine practitioners work with patients to develop strategies for incorporating these lifestyle modifications into their daily routines, enhancing the body’s ability to cope with stress and promoting emotional resilience.

Hormone Balance

Hormonal imbalances, such as those involving cortisol, thyroid hormones, or sex hormones, can significantly impact mood and anxiety levels. Functional medicine practitioners assess hormone levels through comprehensive testing and then create targeted interventions to restore balance. These interventions may include lifestyle modifications, nutritional support, and stress reduction techniques.
