Treatment of Emotions, Psychological & Mental Disorders

Did you know that many emotional, psychological, mental and neuro-psychiatric conditions can be misdiagnosed and are caused by any of the factors listed below? When the following are not assessed the results are treatment by medications with harmful side effects.

– Poor blood sugar management, undiagnosed pre-diabetes, insulin resistance
– Anemia
– Metabolic syndrome
– Uncommon infection – bacteria, viral, parasite
– Low blood pressure
Thyroid: hypo or hyper function, dysfunctional thyroid complex
– Deficiencies of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes)

– Neurological Excitotoxins
– Poor management of an existing autoimmune disease (RA, ALS, MS, Hashimoto’s, etc)
– Accumulation of medications in the body or their Side Effects
– Distorted perceptions or understandings

If you have not had a thorough assessment of the items listed above via diet, life style and unique lab tests you may have a dysfunctional physiological mechanism at the root of your disorder and could have been misdiagnosed or are vulnerable to being misdiagnosed with an emotional, psychological, neuro-psychological or mental disorder and be prescribed an unnecessary medication.

At Tahoe Neuro Healing we assess all of the physiological mechanisms through extensive evaluations and lab tests to identify the cause of your ‘inner pain and suffering’. Thereafter a specific therapy program is presented to heal the brain, mind and emotions.

Brain BBBcyrex labs logoCyrex Labs, Inc

Learn about the newly emerging   neurodegenerative conditions caused by  food and environment exposures of which many of today’s mental and emotional disorders are directly linked.  Patients who do not improve with conventional medicine and/or psychotherapy  may require  laboratory tests  to identify  necessary  lifelong dietary modifications and appropriate  neuroendocrine immunological support.


Did you know that prescription medications for depression and anxiety are the most numerous prescribed drug in the USA and that most are being issued without an appropriate diagnosis and patients are suffering the consequences of side effects and are not being helped?  See this report by CNN and Prevention Magazine from 2007. CDC: Anti-depressants most prescribed drug in USA

What disorders and diseases are commonly misdiagnosed?

Psychological Disorders: Anxiety, AADD, ADHD, Bi-Polar, Bi-Polar Personality Disorder, Depression, Eating Disorders, OCD, PBA or Phobias

Emotions: Anger-Rage, Fear, Excess Grief, Out-of-control Crying, Constant Worry, Mood Swings, Anxious – nervous

Neurological degenerative brain disorder/disease such as Memory difficulties, slowed speech, dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, White Matter Disease

Mental diseases/disorders such as Schizophrenia

Any of the above diseases or disorders can be misdiagnosed when based upon the use of standard conventional diagnosis and when identified can be corrected without medications. The necessary additional diagnostic evaluations and lab tests are not within standard training of MDs and Psychiatrists and therefore are not covered by insurance. And because the treatments are not the use of a prescription medication there is no insurance coverage for the detoxification, dietary, nutritional supplements or neurological development/training therapy.

Researchers looked at 34,000 patients records, fewer than half of whom took FDA-approved sleep meds as Ambien, Restoril, Lunesta, and Sonata. They found that those who took fewer than 18 sleeping pills a year were at greater risk of death and developing cancer than those who were not prescribed sleeping aids.

“My assessment services fill a void by doing the testing and assessments that are outside the scope of practice or expertise of a psychologist or psychiatrist. My unique and integrated therapy services provides treatments that maximize the potentials to restore correct physiological functioning of many body systems. The emotional-psychological-mental experience is interdependent with the body’s actions, the mind’s thoughts and the emotions and that allows for sometimes simple solutions to address complex “domino” interactions of psycho-neuro-endocrine-immune relationships which give us our life experience.”  – Van Harding L.Ac.
