Have a question about emotional health ask me now
Anxiety & Mood
The truth is, emotional health is key to over-all health. If you don’t feel well emotionally, are feeling anxious, experience low mood or have fluctuating moods (up one minute down the next) then feeling physically healthy and well can be really hard.
What can you do and what are the causes?
Your mood is dictated by chemical messengers in your brain called neurotransmitters. When we have the right balance of neurotransmitters we feel happy, relaxed and joyful but when these become imbalanced, then anxiety, mood and energy fluctuations can occur.
There are many reasons why neurotransmitters become unbalanced some common causes are:
Purely emotional (e.g. past traumas, stress, failing relationships)
Others are physical: diet induced, nutritional deficiencies, toxicities
Genetics often play a role
As do hormone imbalances, poor gut and liver function
So as you can see mood problems can be complex. This is why seeking professional help is always recommended. It's also important to recognise that depending on the severity naturopathic medicine alone may not be enough and you may need the assistance of conventional drugs and/or some sort of psychological therapy alongside herbs and supplements - over the years I've seen these three work very well together.
In your appointments I will teach you how to eat right for your body type and to balance mood with food + prescribe herbal and nutritional medicine to support and assist with healthy neurotransmitter production. Often significant detoxification is also required.
A big part of the emotional coaching work I do with my clients is to help them learn to process their emotions in a balanced manner, to connect and listen to their heart + teaching techniques to reduce the constant cycle of emotional suppression which is often the underlying cause to anxiety and mood problems.
