Mental Illness and Mood
Optimal health includes not only the body, but mind and spirit as well. Mental health disorders are very common and can affect anyone, at any time. The body and mind are connected and in order to treat the mind, one needs to consider the health of the body as well. Stressful events, environmental changes, nutrient status and even food sensitivities can cause or contribute to mood disturbances.
Common mental health concerns treated by a Naturopathic Doctor include depression, anxiety, insomnia, stress, bipolar and obsessive compulsive disorder.
In order to treat mental health concerns, dietary changes, acupuncture, lifestyle counselling, herbal medicine or intravenous therapy may be recommended by your naturopathic doctor.
