The functional medicine approach to brain and mood conditions
Conditions that affect the brain and mood are vast, and at some point in everyone’s life they will experience at least one. Those suffering from their effects often feel frustration and isolation with their situation.
Brain and mood disorders are often associated with an imbalance somewhere else in the body, which has a downstream (or upstream) effect on the brain.
Understanding the inter-connectedness of our bodies invites us to investigate somewhere other than where it would seem obvious. Through hormonal pathways, circulatory and neurological pathways we recognise that an issue in one part of the body may well be fuelled by a fault in another part of the body.
Leaky gut, infections, chronic stress, hormone imbalances, nutrient depletion, and exposures to toxins can all produce symptoms that affect the delicate balance of brain chemistry.
The process of restoration of brain health and mood balance has been shown effective when using a functional medicine approach.
Finding and addressing the underlying causes often corrects the condition without other interventions. Optimising diet and nutrient levels, eliminating the sources of imbalance, and modifying key lifestyle factors are the key to brain health and happiness.
Get to the root of your anxiety
Looking for anxiety treatment in Melbourne? We may be able to help. Your practitioner will examine your symptoms, triggers, and the cause of your anxiety from a holistic viewpoint.
When it comes to anxiety treatment, many patients and practitioners fail to consider the impact of adrenal fatigue, caused by stress, in anxiety. Consequently, many of us live with anxiety where an effective anxiety treatment may be available.
The adrenalin associated with stress can be extremely useful to humans in the short term. As a survival response, adrenalin helped our ancestors to successfully navigate daily dangers, while today, many people enjoy the adrenalin rush that can come from riding a rollercoaster or watching a scary movie.
However, for individuals experiencing adrenal fatigue, this constant feeling of hyper vigilance can lead to chronic anxiety, depression, fatigue, and other related symptoms.
Our holistic treatment for anxiety will work to determine if your anxiety is connected to adrenal fatigue or something else. Then, we'll work with you to implement a holistic treatment for anxiety.
Some causes of adrenal fatigue and subsequent anxiety include:
- Dietary and nutritional imbalances
- Insufficient oxygen
- Infections, and the presence of toxins in your system
- Stresses in your everyday life
As well as research-based advice and treatments, you'll have the support and guidance of one of our health coaches so you can achieve the best health possible and return to living a full, satisfying life.
Let's get you feeling healthy (and happier) again.
