Anxiety Treatment

Today being ‘stressed’ is seen as a natural part of life, and it is to a certain extent but when left unmanaged or long-standing it can have a negative impact on our health.

Naturopathy treats physical ailments but also addresses some of the more common conditions we suffer anxiety, depression, insomnia, stress, and fatigue. To feel truly healthy, it’s to balance the mind, body, and soul.



Anxiety is part of a biologically useful reaction to danger. Anxiety may be transient, persistent, episodic or limited to specific situations. The symptoms of anxiety are both psychological and physical, most commonly it is transient.

Anxiety disorders can be related to altered levels of neurotransmitters and hormonal levels. These can be affected by stress, diet or lifestyle.

Naturopathic treatment is aimed at decreasing and control aggravating factors diet, lifestyle and to regulate neurotransmitters to aid the body’s ability to cope with stress. We support the nervous system and while also offering symptomatic relief.


Disrupted communication between the brain and the body can have deleterious effects upon one’s physical and mental health. Depression, anxiety and other mood disorders are thought to be directly related to neurotransmitter imbalances. We can use functional pathology testing to gain an in-depth understanding as to what may be driving the mood disturbances.



Stress is normal and usually motivates us to sharpen our focus in situations where immediate action is required. The degree of the stress response is usually determined by the intensity of the situation. Stress (the fight or flight response) is triggered by surges of adrenaline, this hormone makes our heart beat faster increasing our breathing, increasing your energy, increase blood flow to muscles in the heart and the brain so you can deal with the source of stress. After the stressful event passes, your body takes the time to recover, with adequate recovery time your body restores its energy again. During the stress, your digestive and reproductive systems are neglected, once the stress has passed and you have recovered, these areas start functioning properly again. This whole stress response is short-lived if the stress state continues these delicate balances can become easily exhausted and can cause a disturbance to your energy and over health.

On going stress

If the stress continues your body switches to a different mechanism to deal with long-term chronic stress. Your body releases cortisol to allow you to stay active and attentive for extended periods of time to deal with the chronic stress at hand. This response can be quite damaging to the body if it continues for years and years and has a negative impact on your health.

  • Increased blood pressure

  • My heart goes out to all Australians facing devastating fires. If you can help, donate to the Red Cross, RFS or WIRES.
  • What a year, farewell 2019, looking forward to all good things in 2020 🥳 Happy New Year!
  • My poor lungs...! Ugh I’m still sick. 
So the next solution (I forgot all these magical remedies when I’m sick) is 3 or 4 garlic cloves, crushed and infused in oil. Olive or coconut oil will do. 
Rub the oil on the soles of the feet and wrap them up in socks. An oldie but a goodie 🧙🏼‍♀️

  • 🙋🏼‍♀️ my next few weeks. Today’s my last day in the clinic until the New Year. 
It’s been... different to return to work after having a little baby! It’s been stressful - does my brain still work?! Wonderful - being back in my element and helping people. Challenging - getting my work mojo back, sticking to times and pumping milk between clients.

But it’s been so good to be back and helping people get healthy!

I’ll be taking some time off, resting, playing and having family time to return January 13
Looking forward to 2020 ❣️ #holisticliving #holistichealth #holisticwellness #balance #naturopath #wellnessclinic #holisticlifestyle #healthmatters #wellnessjourney #mindbodyspirit
  • 🥦🥒🥬🍏🥝🥬🥒
Greens are a great for detoxing, reducing inflammation and supporting healthy digestion. 
Leafy green vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet. Leafy greens including kale, spinach, arugula, and chard are the undeniable superstars of the food world. Low in calories, yet high in fiber, vitamins, and phytonutrients, greens are incredible for your health in more ways than you would even suspect.

Whether in whole food form, smoothies, or organic greens powders, greens have the power to make you look and feel younger, and can even support healthy aging. 🥦Improve Inflammatory Response
Though this may be a no-brainer, I want to re-emphasize how important it is to support a healthy inflammatory response in order to protect yourself from a battery of chronic illnesses. Leafy greens contain antioxidants and polyphenols, the disease-fighting compounds found in plant foods. 🥬Greens are expert detoxifiers, thanks to chlorophyll–the pigment that makes greens…green! Chlorophyll-rich foods such as spirulina, chlorella, parsley, and alfalfa bind to heavy metals and toxins in your blood and carry them out of your body. Chlorophyll also helps cleanse your liver to support your body’s natural ability to detox.  #holisticwellness #holisticliving #holistichealth #healthmatters #acne #clearskin #skin #fitlife #wellness #nutrition #health #acntreatment #skinhealth #iamwellandgood #mindbodygreen #mindfulliving #holisticlifestyle #intuitiveliving #mindbodyspirit #holisticmedicine #naturalhealth #healthyhappylife #greenlifestyle #organiclifestyle #pimple #pimleprevention #skincare #breakouts #womenshealth #beauty
  • Clay the emergency fix 🚨 for angry breakouts 
Christmas time often equates to later nights, alcohol and diets that are a little off track. It only happens once a year so let’s not feel too guilty. 
But what to do when giant mountainous eruptions break through!?
1) relax
2) ensure you are hydrated 
3) keep up the fiber to get things moving 
4) topical green clay to draw out, reduce inflammation and speed up healing 
5) moisturize with lavender and frankincense in a carrier cream

White clay is all I has :/ Benefits of Green Clay💚
For oily, combination and acne-prone skin, Green Clay is ideal for restoring balance. Green Clay works overtime to soak up the excess oils that clog the pores and lead to acne and imperfections, plus it doubles as a powerful deep cleanser that helps to balance pH levels. One of my favourite qualities of Green Clay is that it stimulates cell regeneration to leave you with a seriously glowing complexion.  #cleanliving #greenlifestyle #healthmatters #healthyhappylife #holistichealth #holisticlifestyle #holisticliving #holisticmedicine #acne #clearskin #skin #pimple #pimleprevention #foodforhealth #skincare #breakouts #womenshealth #beauty
