A naturopathic approach to stress, anxiety and depression

A well-balanced emotional state is vital to good health and wellbeing, but symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression are all too common, often featuring in other health problems or illness.

With a three-pronged therapeutic approach, the Asyra screening equipment guides the therapist to offer the right bio-energetic treatment, combined with herbal medicine and naturopathic advice.

Using an integrated natural healthcare system helps improve mental wellbeing in a quick, non-invasive, painless way. Every person is different, so treatment and herbs are unique to each individual, but they typically address one or more of the following:

Chemical or hormonal imbalances

Women especially are affected by hormonal imbalances. Depression and mood swings can be helped with certain herbs that help bodies better regulate these hormones.

Poor energy levels

Often patients don’t have enough energy to cope – snapping at others and feeling low – and things always seem worse when they are tired and fatigued. When correctly prescribed, a group of herbs known as adaptogens, or energy tonics, can work quickly to lift moods.


Difficulty in relaxing

On the other end of the spectrum, relaxing herbs can calm without necessarily sedating. Strong chamomile tea can be effective, but more powerful blends can help deal with anxiety and stress.

Underlying emotional issues

Unresolved emotional problems require changing ways of thinking or behaviour patterns. Specialist bio-energetic Asyra equipment tests for appropriate emotional energies, mostly from flower remedies, which can start a process of emotional healing.

Brain function

People with stress, anxiety or depression often suffer a foggy or muzzy mind, as both memory and concentration are affected. This can also be caused by toxins or pathogens, so liver and other detox support is crucial, as are foods promoting better gut stability. There are a number of specific herbs that can have a positive effect on cognition and memory.

Finally, nutritional deficiencies can also affect the nerves and brain function, so testing and dietary advice can be beneficial.
