Common conditions we treat at TrueCARE Integrative Medicine, Glenview IL

Anxiety & Depression

Your mental health is a combination of your emotional, social, and physical well-being. Conditions affecting your mental health, such as anxiety and depression, tend to interfere with how you think, feel, and interact with others. At TrueCARE Integrative Medicine in Glenview, Illinois, we try to get to the root causes of these conditions and treat the cause instead of treating just the symptoms.

What is mental health?

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. The state of our mental health can affect how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:

  • Biological factors, such as genes or brain chemistry
  • Life experiences, such as trauma or abuse
  • Poor lifestyle habits, such as eating processed & junk food, nutritional deficiency, lack of exercise, smoking, hormonal imbalances
  • Family history of mental health problems

What are common mental health conditions?


Anxiety is an emotional response that causes fear and worry when dealing with stressful situations. Anxiety is normal and goes away once the stress is gone.

However, you might have an anxiety disorder when you continue to feel nervous, scared, or worried about everyday things. Ms. Patel specializes in helping patients struggling with anxiety disorders.


Depression is a mood disorder that causes persistent feelings of sadness and despair that affect your day-to-day life. When feeling so low, it’s hard to imagine that anything can help. But with the right treatment, you can get relief from your depression symptoms.

What can I expect during an evaluation for anxiety and depression?

Before your initial visit at TrueCARE Integrative Medicine, Ms. Patel conducts a 15-minute phone evaluation to discuss your needs and her approach to care.

Ms. Patel takes an integrative approach, focusing on your whole health and not only your anxiety or depression symptoms. When you come in for help, she asks detailed questions about how you feel and how it affects your daily life.

She also reviews your usual diet, daily routine, exercise habits, and medical and mental health history. Ms. Patel performs a physical exam and runs comprehensive lab tests to help identify the underlying cause of your mental health symptoms.
