Are you, or is someone you know, struggling with depression, anxiety, or chronic stress? More than likely - mental health disorders are currently at epidemic levels in our society.
While there’s a lot of debate around the underlying causes of these disorders, one thing is certain - diet plays a huge factor. In Nutrition Medicine, we see that patients who have concerns about their mental health are generally suffering from some kind of neurotransmitter imbalance, underlying inflammation, or oxidative stress.
Modern medicine focuses exclusively on neurotransmitter balance. However, there is strong evidence that mental stress is just as important. That stress can come from your diet or from your environment. The good news is that we can use Nutrition Medicine to boost the micro-nutrients, macro-nutrients and enzymes that your body needs to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, while at the same time optimising your neurotransmitter levels. This gives your neural pathways a great chance to rebalance and start working properly.
The right Nutrition Medicine plan can assist in so many areas. Not just depression and anxiety, but also ADHD, Autism, and even neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
In addition to using diet and supplementation to support optimal neurotransmitter activity, a Nutrition Medicine practitioner can also help you adopt some healthy lifestyle changes to get you back on track. These include meditation, exercise, other specific therapies and social support. So please, give us a call, or pop into your local Nutrition Medicine Certified pharmacy and talk to one of the team. Or even better, make an appointment to see Martin and his team at the Nutrition Medicine Clinic. There is so much we can do to help you feel your best.
