Mental Health Q & A
What is mental health?
Mental health is an essential aspect of your total wellness. Your mental health affects your physical and spiritual health, and vice versa. When striving to achieve optimal wellness, you must protect and treat your mental health just as you do your body when you have pain or other symptoms.
An integrative approach to mental health appreciates how nutrition, lifestyle choices, health habits, genetics, behavior patterns, and physical conditions impact how you think and feel. A functional medicine approach uncovers the root causes of mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, and mood disorders.
Dr. Kapoor and the ARA Integrative and Functional Medicine team prevent and treat mental health conditions by combining conventional and alternative methods using a highly personalized plan of care that fits your needs.
What impacts my mental health?
Many factors can impact your mental health and cause unhealthy thoughts and emotional patterns, including medications, food, drugs and alcohol, toxic exposure, traumatic events, stress, and poor sleep.

- Adrenal fatigue and imbalance
- Metabolic disorders
- Chronic fatigue
- Autoimmune disease
- Sleep disorders
- Hormone imbalances

A vital part of assessing and treating your mental health is uncovering the factors that cause or exacerbate your symptoms. Dr. Kapoor commits to equipping and empowering you to find what negatively affects your mental health and overcome those factors.
