Take Charge of Your Mental Health with Carolina Brain Center

Patients who struggle with mood imbalance have been coming to Dr. Darcy Dane for treatment for years. With the latest technology and research, Dr. Dane has been treating mood imbalances with notable success.

Let’s take a look at what mood imbalances are and how Dr. Dane at the Carolina Brain Center helps patients who have them.

What Are Mood Imbalances?

Mood imbalances are also called mood disorders. They occur when your emotional state doesn’t fit with your current state of being. Usually, mood disorders affect functionality. For example, you can have bouts of depression or mania, even when circumstances don’t quite fit.

Often, people with mood disorders can also have anxiety disorders. Anxiety and depression often go hand-in-hand. People with mood disorders can have suicidal tendencies.

Like most brain disorders, mood imbalances have a wide range of symptoms and severity. These are some mood disorders Dr. Dane treats at the Carolina Brain Clinic:

  • Bipolar disorder: causes mood swings between depression and mania
  • Cyclothymic disorder: causes emotional swings like bipolar disorder, but without extremes
  • Depression related to illness, substance abuse, or medication: depression systems that develop because of an outside cause
  • Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder: chronic and severe irritability in children that doesn’t fit with their developmental age
  • Major depressive disorder: constant periods of extreme sadness
  • Persistent depressive disorder: chronic depression, also known as dysthymia
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder: mood changes that follow a woman’s menstrual cycle
  • Seasonal affective disorder: depression connected to less daylight during the fall and winter months

How Do I Know if I Have a Mood Imbalance?

The best time to seek treatment for a mood imbalance is if your emotions interfere with your daily life, especially the things you enjoy doing the most. If you are considering suicide, please seek emergency treatment, call 911, or the suicide prevention hotline.

Mood disorders rarely go away on their own. They often get worse without treatment. Some people will try to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol, which only worsens the problem.

Treating Mood Imbalances

Mood disorders vary between patients, so Dr. Dane will develop a personalized treatment program for you. With her board certification in chiropractic neurology, she understands how mood imbalance works in the brain and knows that there are other treatments besides medication and behavioral therapy.

Functional Healthcare

To help with mood imbalances, Dr. Dane uses a functional healthcare approach to identify the root cause and create long-lasting changes. Every patient deserves individualized care, especially since some mood disorders can have more serious symptoms than others.

The functional healthcare approach uses neurology, biochemistry, and nutrition to reduce the issues related to mood disorders. Each treatment connects to pathways in either hemisphere of the brain to reduce inflammation and improve the chemical environment in the brain.
