Medication Management

Psychiatric medication has revolutionized mental illness treatment by better control of the symptoms.

However, the medicine is not a normal part of the body’s biochemistry, the body naturally resists it, and the side effects occur inevitably.

Most drugs manipulate and interfere with the normal body functions to generate an impact; the long term use of the medicines cause increased side effects and loss of efficacy.

We believe medication should be used conservatively as a short term solution and as a supplementation while the underlying causes are discovered and corrected.

At the Yang Institute of Integrative Medicine, we manage and monitor medication uses to maintain maximum efficacy with minimum side effects. We carefully select medication based on your genetic makeup, neurotransmitter imbalance, and lifestyle.

I was on five different medications and felt like an empty shell walking around numb. I know I can not live like this, and besides, I have gained 150 lb since I added the last two medications, one helps sleep and the other for anxiety. Dr. Yang help me make a plan to reduce my medication slowly and used more nutrients and herbs. Three months later, I am on only two medications in half of the dosage I used to take. My goal is to eliminate them all!”

I felt suicide when the doctor gave me Prozac and other types of similar antidepressants. It angers me that these medications help ve other and hurt me. It confirmed my belief that I was doomed and would never get better. Dr. Yang discovered that I had a biochemical imbalance caused by my genetic makeup. I need supplementation of Folate and B12. I should stay away from any SSRI. I am grateful that I need only nutrients instead of medications.”
