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.

If you've started making diet changes, taking your herbs, a good thing to remember is that it will take a little time, knowing this helps us understand the process and that positive changes will take time 🌱Lx .
