Treat mental Illness with Integrative Medicine Approach

At Yang Institute, we view mental illness as a combination of brain dysfunction and maladaptive coping behavior. Our mind, body, and spirit model addresses factors that may contribute to mental dysfunctions at different levels, including:

  • The structural integrity (of the physical body)
  • The biochemical balance
  • The energetic equilibrium
  • The spiritual enlightenment

With the integration of different modalities and therapies, our doctors and specialists strive to help patients improve their function, reduce the dependence on medication, and regain productivity to live a meaningful life.

Yang Institute combines cutting-edge medical technologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, neurofeedback (or biofeedback) with the ancient healing art of acupuncture, psychotherapy, advanced nutrient therapy, and functional medicine.

Mental Conditions We Treat

Treat and Correct Biochemical Imbalance

Biochemical imbalances in the body and brain may cause mood dysregulation, cognitive deficits, and executive dysfunction.

By identifying and correcting the specific types of biochemical imbalances, individualized Advanced Nutrient Therapy helps improve brain functions and reduce symptoms naturally and safely.

Most mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, bipolar and schizophrenia, PTSD, autism, and ADHD have biochemical imbalances due to genetic and environmental factors. They have benefited from Yang Institute’s Advanced Nutrient Therapy Program.

Treat Depression Non-Med with rTMS

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is an innovative, FDA-approved, non-drug therapy that helps patients struggling with major depression when antidepressants have failed, or they’ve become intolerant.

rTMS uses a non-invasive, targeted, repetitive low magnetic pulse to modulate the brain’s natural neurotransmitter function. It is safe and has minimal side effects.

The FDA has approved rTMS therapy for patients with resistant depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Most insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid, cover rTMS for resistant depression.

Yang Institute’s TMS-PLUS program is designed to help those who suffer from depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorders, cognitive dysfunction, bipolar and schizophrenia, and seek a safer solution with minimal use of medications.

  • Advanced Nutrient Therapy
  • Neurofeedback treatment
  • Acupuncture treatment
  • Psychotherapy
  • Psychoenergetic therapy

Neuromodulation for Mental and Brain Dysfunctions

Yang Institute also offers Neurofeedback and Neuromodulation therapy that improve the brain’s ability to rewire itself as a result of repetitive training.

Neurofeedback and Neuromodulation therapy starts with qEEG (a quantitative electroencephalogram) brain mapping that records the brain’s electronic activities and provides incredibly detailed information on how the brain is performing electronically.

Neuro-Psycho-Energetic Therapy

Human beings register every life event physically, emotionally, and cognitively. One naturally suppresses or represses any unpleasant or traumatic life events to the unconscious and sometimes totally blocks out these events from memory in order to survive and move on with life.

However, the physical and emotional memories remain and then become reactivated every time another life event happens that even remotely reminds the body of past events.

One, therefore, reacts to both current and past life events in the form of panic attacks, anxiety, physical symptoms, and behavioral avoidance or aggression. These events retraumatize one in amplification each time they happen.

To change any behavior and emotional overreactions requires desensitizing the body’s emotional and physical memories and bringing the suppressed and repressed memories to the cognitive level with better understanding and coping skills.

Yang Institute’s Neuro-Psycho-Energetic Therapy integrates psychotherapy, neuro-emotional techniques (NET), biofeedback, and acupuncture to help reduce the body’s reaction from emotional and physical trauma.

Psychotherapy and Medication Management

Yang Institute’s provider’s team is composed of highly trained, board-certified psychiatrists, psychotherapists, psychopharmacologists, and neuroscience therapists.

They work together to help patients with psychological and behavioral issues.

Our psychiatrists and psychopharmacologists manage and monitor patients’ medication use to maintain maximum efficacy with minimum side effects by carefully selecting medication based on the patients’ genetic makeup, neurotransmitter imbalance, and lifestyle.

Dr. Mirro is compassionate and skilled. He does not give up on you. He gives you the hope that you need even when you feel that there is none. I will be forever grateful to Dr Mirro.” - Mary H

Individualized Treatment Plan

By focusing on the patients’ unique genetic, biochemical, and energetic makeups, lifestyles, cultural upbringing, and belief systems, Yang Institute’s experienced mental health professionals apply individualized treatment plans to help patients regain wellness of mind, body, and spirit.

To ensure the patients receive high-quality care at Yang Institute, a designated care manager will help them by verifying insurance coverage for rTMS and acupuncture, and out-of-network benefits for other therapies we offer, navigating and scheduling the treatments, communicating and advocating on patients behalf with the specialists of the care team.
