    Root Cause Psychiatry and the Treatment-Resistant Patient

    Learn how Root Cause Psychiatry helped two of our patients achieve a full recovery, following years of being resistant to standard psychiatric treatments. For each of them, we first identified the unique underlying causes of their chronic emotional distress, including their genetic makeup, gut microbiome, cellular health, and immune system functioning, to blueprint their treatment plan. We then implemented that plan using prescription medication, epigenetic modulation of their genes, gut healing, and nutritional biochemistry.

    Do Infections Cause Depression, Anxiety, And Other Psychiatric Diseases?

    Dr. Miles Nichols speaks to Potomac Psychiatry's Founder, Dr. Bruce Kehr to explore the link between infections and psychiatric diseases like depression and anxiety. Gut health, brain inflammation, and microglia activation may contribute to mental health disorders. Autoimmunity against brain structures post-infection can also cause mental health issues. Testing and treatment options are available to reduce infectious load and regulate the immune system. Treatment may improve brain function and mental health by changing brain autoimmunity. The podcast also looks at the future of cutting-edge treatments and where psychiatry is heading.
