Stress, depression, anxiety or fatigue – a debilitating mental health problem can strike anyone at any time. Here’s how to treat yours naturally and live free of symptoms.

It’s hard to understate the impact of a mental health problem. It can make the simple act of getting through your day very, very difficult.

It can hurt the most important things in life, like your relationships with loved ones and your ability to work. And it can rob you of the simple enjoyment of the little things which comprise so much of our everyday lives.

Overcoming mental health problems can be hard work. When you are in the thick of it, thinking that you could once again be happy, relaxed or able to control your emotions can seem like an impossible dream.

But at Healthful we not only believe it is possible, we know it is. For some patients it means correcting one imbalance. For others it can require a multi-pronged approach. The treatment of the biochemical causes of your mood disturbances can deliver huge benefits. We’ll probe what is happening internally that is causing your discomfort, while also factoring in outside factors.

We also recognise the importance of ongoing psychological support with a qualified therapist and advocate the benefits of a regular mindfulness practice and exercise, which can deliver a swift improvement in mental wellbeing.

Like a sleuth, we look for the clues

Correcting your biochemistry could be the major piece of the puzzle required for balance, or it could be the first piece of the puzzle. Identifying biochemical imbalances helps us find the answer that may have been missing for years.

At Healthful we focus on treating the person not the condition. Through it all, we’ll stand by your side, explain every step in plain English and devise a treatment plan which reflects your unique circumstances.

We can help if you experience any of the following signs and symptoms:

  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Low mood
  • Poor self esteem
  • Anger outbursts
  • Feeling despondent
  • Inability to see the positive in life
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Poor stress tolerance
  • Feeling de-motivated
  • Obsessive compulsive tendencies
  • Difficulty dealing with conflict or being challenged
  • Reduced ability to control emotions such as guilt, pessimism, anger and sadness

Looking deeper

The causes of mood disorders can be many. What drives one person’s depression, for example, will be different for another person. But often, treatments are limited to a focus on a neurotransmitter imbalance when the causes are multi-factorial. An approach which considers your condition from all angles is more likely to get results you need.

We look for:

  • Deficiencies of nutritional cofactors for neurotransmitter production
  • The role hormones play in mental health, including insulin resistance for blood sugar regulation, cortisol for stress tolerance and reproductive hormone imbalances
  • The possibility that inflammation is playing a role
  • Imbalances of the methylation cycle
  • Histamine intolerance
  • Pyrrole disorder
  • Genetic mutations

With the use of nutritional and herbal medicine we can help correct the underlying causes of mood disturbances and the great thing is these treatment options are side-effect free.
