Depression & Anxiety

Natural Solutions for Depression and Anxiety

Most people experience depression and anxiety at some point in their lives. Coping with loss of a loved one, unemployment, divorce, or general dissatisfaction with one’s life can cause periods of stress and low mood.

However, for those who experience these feelings every day, without an apparent cause, symptoms can be overwhelming and even debilitating. People who struggle with anxiety and/ or depression often have a difficult time with everyday functioning. In addition, because nearly one-half of individuals diagnosed with depression also have an anxiety disorder, symptoms can compound, leaving a person emotionally and even physically worn out and unable to handle even mild stressors.

Long-term, untreated depression and anxiety have been linked to many health conditions, including heart attacks, stroke, and coronary artery disease. By treating these conditions early with natural techniques, patients can avoid negative side effects.

Safety note: If you are experiencing suicidal feelings or ideation, contact the suicide hotline immediately. Naturopathic medicine is effective in the long-term treatment of emotional conditions, but is no substitute for life-saving intervention in a moment of crisis.
