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.

  • My top oils when it comes to break outs! 
When your skin is red, hot, inflamed and sore. 🌷Lavender oil works to kill bacteria, and this can prevent and heal acne breakouts. It unclogs pores and reduces inflammation when you put it on your skin. 🌷 Frankincense known as the king of essential oils, in ancient times frankincense was considered to be one of the most valuable commodities. ... Frankincense will soothe and reduce inflammation and can also help prevent acne forming thanks to the boswellic acids it contains which are capable of killing bacteria associated with acne.

Wash your face in warm water, a drop of each oil in a plain moisturizer - like QV, massage gently into your face before bed.

At all costs do not pick! The last thing you want is scarring. .

  • Omega-7 fatty acids are unsaturated fatty acids found in certain fish, like salmon and anchovy, and oils such as olive oil, macadamia oil, and sea buckthorn oil.
Omega 7 is also vital for healthy hair, skin and nails. It works to control free-radicals and to reduce inflammation in the skin, thus helping to control and reduce acne breakouts. Consuming Omega 7, either through your regular diet, or by supplementation can have very positive effects on skin condition such as acne.

I like to use this topically. ⠀⠀
Use 20ml sea buckthorn with a drop of lavender and a drop of frankincense, massage over affected area after a shower, before bed. ⠀⠀ #fitlife #holisticliving #holistichealth #holisticwellness #wellness #healthmatters #nutrition #health #acne #acntreatment #skin #skinhealth #clearskin
  • Post pill acne.... 🏔🏔🌋🏔 generally erupts 2+ months after coming off the oral contraceptive pill. 
And at its worse from 3-6months, just when most women have had enough, they jump back on the pill - not addressing the root cause. ⠀⠀
Post pill acne is often made worse by certain types of pill... Diane, Yasmin; we find after suppressing the hormones, a surge will happen as the hormones bounce back into action. The androgen hormones in particular. A good way to help the phase pass with ease; a clean diet, water and sweating. But also zinc, to help reduce androgen hormones and heal the skin. Best taken for a few months at night, right before bed to maximize absorption. Lx .

  • When it comes to skin care.. there is a huge amount of fad products; often expensive and ineffective. ⠀⠀
There are some simple things you do at home to help improve your skin. One thing I love is a good green juice. When we want to improve our skin, think fiber, vitamin c and antioxidants. ⠀⠀
Try this;
Slice of ginger (anti inflammatory)
Apples (prebiotic)
Coconut water (hydrating)
Blueberries (antioxidants) 
Mint for taste ⠀⠀
I do like a dash of cinnamon for healthy blood sugar levels and also some protein powder. Try this for breakfast or as an afternoon snack. Taking the burden off digestion with something light and loaded with nutrients will help support healthy skin. 💁🏽‍♀️. #eatclean #eatwell #eattherainbow #eeeeeats #foodart #forkfeed #healthydiet #healthyeating #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthymeal #plantbased #cleanliving #greenlifestyle #healthmatters #healthyhappylife
  • 🥝Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of ALL body tissues.

🍓🥬🌶🥦🍒🥝 I’m seeing more women present with post pill acne. Escaping acne in your teens only to have outbreaks in your 20-30’s. 🥝First we look at balancing the hormones, getting healthy periods and reducing outbreaks. But also helping to heal the skin and reduce the chance of scaring. Vitamin C can help reduce scaring; the best place to start is the diet but with severe acne and a tendency of scarring, consider a supplement.
