Nutritional Supplements

Sequoia Mind Health produces and sells nutritional supplemenents, all formulated by Dr. Goodwin, that support mind health.  We only sell and recommend supplements that have evidence for their efficacy in peer-reviewed literature.  You can purchase our supplements from our office on 1506 4th St in Santa Rosa, or order them on Amazon.
 
Current supplements:
Multivitamin and mineral blend: vitamins and minerals are required for the synthesis of neurotransmitters, and a significant body of literature over the past decades has supported a link between nutrients and mood (Kaplan et al, 2007)
Omega-3 Fatty Acid Blend: omega-3 fatty acid supplementation has an extensive evidence base as an adjunctive treatment for mood disorders, including bipolar depression, as well as anxiety and psychosis.  The literature supports the use of omega-3 blends that have a higher proportion of EPA compared to DHA (Sublette et al, 2011).

Finally, a defining feature of a concierge practice is that payment is directly to the physician. There is an hourly fee for sessions in addition to a small annual fee, which allows us to block off unscheduled time for same-day and next-day appointment, should urgent needs arise. Sequoia Mind Health is not a member of any insurance panels, and does not accept insurance payments. That said, many insurance companies provide what are called “out-of-network benefits,” which allow you to be reimbursed directly for services rendered by us. If you have insurance, please contact your insurance company directly to see if these benefits are part of your plan.
