Naturopathic Medicine Can Be A Part Of Your Mental Health
The end of summer can be a challenging time. The evening air has a chill
reminding you of the impending winter, the sunsets are getting earlier, and you
are reminded of the return to school.
You are not alone.
“Whether you are going into first year of undergrad, entering into a professional program or apprenticeship or are a parent concerned about your child entering Kindergarten, September jitters can lead to anxiety. ”
The most recent statistics indicate that about 25% of students experience significant anxiety and/or depression. Still, you want to feel relaxed and to enjoy your school experience. Isn’t this
supposed to be the most fun time of your life, after all?
Worries and stressors can
make getting through your daily life difficult, if not impossible. Having a plan that
includes naturopathic medicine will help to alleviate or even avoid the anxieties
related to school.
In addition to individual and group therapy, a naturopath can provide help with
supporting the body systems that are put under strain with anxiety, depression
and stress. Maybe you would feel better with cutting down on caffeine and sugar.
Maybe you would benefit from taking magnesium or B vitamins or fish oils.
Perhaps getting exercise or better sleep will be most useful.
Whatever the cause, naturopathic medicine can help you support your mood and
getting back to a more joyful place. If you’re curious about how naturopathic
doctors can help you specifically, make a free 10-minute consult with us. Many
college and university insurance plans as well as your parents’ plans cover the
fees for naturopathic treatments.
