Stress, Anxiety, Depression

Nervous system disturbances such as stress, anxiety and depression are multi factorial and can be caused by, but not limited to, the following

  • Nutrient deficiencies: Certain nutrients such as B Vitamins, zinc, vitamin C and magnesium are vital for proper nervous system function. Being depleted of some of these nutrients can affect our biochemical pathways and can result in insufficient neurotransmitter (brain hormones) production and/or metabolism altering our sense of happiness and well being.

  • Ongoing stress can lead to nutrient deficiencies and affect the way we cope with life and its challenges. Herbs, nutrients and lifestyle modifications can support us and allow us to cope better during these times.

  • Heavy metal accumulation in tissues can lead to symptoms such as depression, brain fog, lack of energy and anxiety. A hair elements tests can determine levels of particular heavy metals. By supporting your detoxification and elimination pathways with herbs and specific nutrients, I can offer safe and professional chelation therapy.

  • Hormonal imbalances. Our nervous and hormonal systems are intrinsically linked so imbalance in one area can easily affect the other. 

  • Inflammation. Unregulated and ongoing inflammation in the body is a causative factor of many ailments. Reducing our inflammatory markers can greatly increase our sense of well being and reduce pain and fatigue.
