Emotional Well Being Q & A

Why is Emotional and Mental Well Being Important?

Mental and emotional well-being is crucial to our health. Positive mental health makes it possible for people to realize their full potential, cope with stresses, work effectively, and make important contributions to their communities. Early childhood experiences have long-term, quantifiable consequences. Emotional well-being during each stage of life assists to build the groundwork for optimal health and well-being. Anxiety, mood, and behavioral issues such as impulse control are related to a higher probability of being involved in risky behaviors including drug use, unsafe sexual behavior, partner and family violence, and several other chronic or acute conditions including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and sexually transmitted diseases.

What Causes Problems with Mental and Emotional Well Being?

Many times, changes in or problems with the person’s neurological health can affect their mind and emotions. At the practice, our doctors provide advanced testing to look in detail at a person’s neurocognitive status and how it is affecting his or her behavior. Tests used include:

  • CNS Vital Signs Neurocognitive Testing: an assessment procedure which uses scientifically validated and objective computerized neuropsychological tests to evaluate the neurocognitive status of patients including a wide range of mental processes from simple motor performance, attention, and memory to higher functions.
  • Genova Diagnostics Amino Acid Analysis: This test helps to identify metabolic imbalances underlying many chronic disorders including neurotransmitter function issues which can affect a person’s emotional health.
  • Genova Diagnostics Adrenocortex Stress Profile: This test evaluates levels of the body's important stress hormones like cortisol and DHEA. The test serves as an important tool for identifying biochemical imbalances which can cause anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, dysglycemia, and many other clinical conditions.
  • Genova Diagnostics Toxic Effects CORE: This tests for the buildup of toxins or chemicals which can create unwanted side effects and can contribute to neurodegenerative diseases.
