Of all the possible disruptions to our health, disturbances to psychological and emotional wellbeing are among the most challenging to endure. After all, in a sense, our mind is “who we are”. Conditions such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD and bipolar disorder affect every aspect of our lives, including our mood and emotions, our relationships, our sense of hope or pessimism, our productivity and level of success in life, even the thoughts that dominate our mental landscape.
While conventional psychiatric treatment can be helpful, many people do not find the relief and restoration of wellbeing that they are looking for, and often experience substantial side effects from medications.
We take a different approach. One that supports the body’s resiliency and innate healing capacity and seeks to address the complex underlying factors that are often at the root of psychological and emotional symptoms.
Our approach is founded on these principles:
- Psychological and emotional wellbeing occurs naturally when the brain and body are in balance and functioning optimally.
- Many stresses of modern life disrupt the balance and function of our brains and bodies and lead to the development of psychological symptoms.
- Common factors contributing to psychological symptoms include neuro-chemical, hormonal, and nutritional imbalances, infections and inflammation, exposure to environmental toxins and the persistent effects of overwhelming stress or adverse life experiences.
- Correctly identifying underlying factors and giving the body the support it needs to restore balance and function can lead to dramatic improvement or complete resolution of psychological and emotional symptoms.
