Mental Health

 

What is Mental And Emotional Health?

Mental health encompasses your state of mind, diagnosed conditions such as depression or anxiety as well as a general sense of emotional wellbeing.  If you suffer from stress, anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, addiction or low mood, nutrition and naturopathy will be able to assist you to restore balance.

Mental or emotional health can affect us in many ways, we live fast paced lives and often endure stress on a daily basis.  You don’t necessarily need a diagnosis to address your mental and emotional health. Feeling burnt out, lacking motivation or having poor concentration can be a sign your nervous system requires a little support.

How We Can Help You Improve Your Mental Health Naturally

We will begin by getting to know a little about you, your unique situation and your medical history.  We also take the time to understand what you’re looking for from a consultation, be it nutritional advice, herbal support, working alongside your doctor or an alternative solution where you feel nothing else has helped.  We then review your diet, lifestyle and environment to make recommendations individual to you and your goals.  Working not only on what you’re eating but the way you’re living and the environment in which you’re doing it, can provide you with more lasting, sustainable results.

Often nutrient imbalances contribute to poor mental health and major improvements can be felt with making simple dietary changes.  We will talk you through which foods help and hinder the particular mental health concern you are experiencing.  This is the foundation to achieving sound mental and emotional health as providing the body with the correct building blocks to manufacture neurotransmitters and hormones correctly.

Herbal and nutritional medicine excels where mental health is concerned and can be a complementary or standalone therapy in treating mild to moderate anxiety and depression, as well as many other conditions of the nervous system.

Where applicable we also order and interpret testing to gain a greater understanding of your health.  This allows your prescription of the highest quality, practitioner only supplements and herbal medicines to be specifically suited just to you.  If your mental or emotional health is holding you back from living your life the way you’d like to then allow natural medicine to balance your nervous system and restore a sense of vitality to your life.
