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.

WELLBEING – IS ALL ABOUT BALANCE! MIND BODY AND SOUL.

ANXIETY

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.

Testing NEUROTRANSMITTER IMBALANCES AND MENTAL HEALTH SYMPTOMS

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

WHAT IS STRESS?

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.

SYMPTOMS OF STRESS INCLUDE

  • Increased cholesterol and fatty acid in the blood
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Local inflammation, swelling heat and pain
  • Increased production of sugar for energy
  • Immune and allergy response
  • Increased metabolism, faster heartbeat, respiration, faster blood clotting
  • Digestive discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, increased stomach acid

As stress strongly affects every system in your body, long-term, and poorly managed stress can have serious health consequences especially for the:

Therefore, we need to manage stress and our response to a stressful situation to ensure balance and health.

  • (Sensible) sun buddies. Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin 🌞

When your skin is exposed to sunlight, it makes vitamin D from cholesterol. The sun's ultraviolet B (UVB) rays hit cholesterol in the skin cells, providing the energy for vitamin D synthesis to occur.

The best time to get the good rays is before 10am or after 3pm for 10-15mins. 
An experiment with 3 groups each had either sunshine, Vit D supplement and oily fish, found all groups had their vitamin D increase around the same amount. 
Vitamin D is crucial to a healthy immune system with majority of us deficient to a certain degree. 
The sun is free, just be careful you don’t over do it!

  • The Acne Face Map👩. The acne face map originates from Chinese/Ayurvedic medicine theory. 👉So often your skin will break out in certain areas on your face and those areas are sometimes related to certain organ systems in your body. 
Sometimes your acne is actually telling you that there are certain imbalances from within that you need to address.

  • You know what’s better than a bucket load of supplements...? eating a rainbow 
You may have read how important vitamin C is for a healthy immune. With most suppliers sold out... orange trees are still producing fruit 🍋🍊🍒🥝 and although toilet paper is fairly scarce you can still get your hands on a heap of fresh produce.

Vitamin C is found in citrus, capsicum, kale, kiwi’s and cherries to name a few. 
Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system.

  • A good time to focus on some positives and things you can do to improve your overall all health. The healthier you can be, the better your body deals with any illness.
1) eat a rainbow. Loads of dark greens, fresh fruit and vegetables. In particular look to increase garlic, onion, ginger, turmeric, slow cooked meals and vegetables, think nourishing food like chicken soup. 
Foods to avoid, refined sugar and processed food. ..
