Emotional Wellness and Counseling
Help in overcoming depression, anxiety, anger, and fear (phobias)
Truly addressing all the factors that contribute to our health is what sets our clinic apart from the average emotional assessment. Our Naturopathic Doctors believe that the body and mind are inseparable. When one part suffers they both suffer. Our aim is to help you discover these links and break any patterns that may be limiting your health and holding you in depression, anxiety, anger, or fear.
We often find people dealing with imbalances in their moods are better capable to address these once underlying biochemical imbalances are addressed. Examples of this are in people with blood sugar irregularities, unbalanced thyroid hormone, adrenal fatigue, etc… When we correct the underlying biochemical imbalance the mood often corrects itself but at bare minimum allows a person to be in a better place to deal with the emotional patterns.
Understand and support healing of the root cause
As with all health we believe that depression, anxiety, anger, and fear are there for a reason and the goal is to understand the root cause of why they are out of balance and debilitating you. What we do so well is help you understand and heal the root cause. The body wants to heal but needs very specific things to heal and we can help you find all the factors involved from the thoughts and emotions to the physical/biochemical factors.
The best treatments in mind-body medicine
Our Naturopathic Doctors use what they have found to be the most effective techniques in treating depression, anxiety, anger, and fear (phobias). Treatment may start with DNA testing to help understand underlying neurotransmitter defects in-order to direct best treatment for you. Treatments include; skilled counselling (to help you unravel hidden patterns that drive some of the emotions and behaviours), biochemical/nutritional/herbal support to help balance neurotransmitters, functional neurology to help reset the nervous system, vagus nerve stimulation to help get you out of fight or flight or freeze, various neuro-reset techniques like; electrical neuro-stimulation with eye movement technique to EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to psycho-kinesiology, and more.

Furthermore, we have found that permanent healing of chronic health issues requires healing on the emotional realm. We have seen mind-body medicine help restore numerous health conditions including; acne, allergies, autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, MS and many other issues.
Conversely, there may be physical reasons for mental health issues, including neurotransmitter deficits, nutritional deficiencies, sleep issues, hormonal deficiencies, electromagnetic pollution, fatigue, etc… Addressing all factors that can be affecting the body is what allows for deep and lasting shifts in the body. Our Naturopathic Doctors can assess if this is a problem and design a program to correct this. We may prescribe natural gentle remedies or supplements that will support the health of the emotional and hormonal centers of your body.
