Anxiety and Natural Treatment Approaches

What is Anxiety?

Mental illness affects all persons in some capacity either via personal experience, a loved one, or friend/colleague. Causes for anxiety may be organic or due or exacerbated by underlying conditions.

Potential causes/factors contributing to anxiety symptoms:

  • Presence of chronic stress (health-related, work/school-related, social causes),
  • Hormonal imbalance, hyperthyroidism, Cushing’s disease, hypoglycemia, menopause
  • Drug abuse, caffeine or supplement abuse, medication withdrawal,
  • Anxiety secondary to cardiac disorders
  • Sleep apnea
  • Asthma
  • Other

Symptoms of anxiety may include:

  • Palpitations, feeling like your heart is racing without reason
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Sweating
  • Heartburn
  • Abdominal pain or discomfort
  • Frequent urination
  • Dizziness or headaches

The Naturopathic approach:

To treat and manage the symptoms of anxiety and discomfort, our naturopaths work with you to first identify the root cause of duress.  After screening for other conditions that may be present, our naturopaths provide individualized treatment recommendations and plans for each person based on their unique needs, and strategies to develop healthy habits for coping. Dealing with anxiety is uncomfortable and sometimes debilitating. By combining compassion with evidence-based care, The Wellness Suite offers a calm and safe environment for healing.

*Note: our naturopaths provide care to support the body’s ability to cope and manage anxiety. We do this by implementing dietary and lifestyle changes in order to remove aggravating factors, as well as support the individual with botanicals and acupuncture. Though the naturopaths create an empathetic environment, they do not provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or any other therapy outside of our scope.
