Suppressing your emotions can lead to physical disease. A classic example of this is when people are diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Your thyroid is in your throat area, which exemplifies your voice. Many of these individuals often have difficulty in saying no, or hold back what they truly want to say to avoid confrontation. This lack of voice manifests disease in their throat and therefore; hypothyroidism develops. Many symptoms of anxiety, depression, fears, lack of self esteem can be treated by optimizing your nutrition, correcting any hormonal imbalance or by peeling layers of an onion until we can get to the core root of the emotion contributing to your mental state.
This can be addressed using nutrition, botanical therapies/supplements, furthermore; with energetic therapies such as acupuncture, lifestyle counselling, homeopathy and/or Bach flower remedies.
Lifestyle counselling involves helping you identify and adjust the habits that contribute to ill health, and help you maintain wellness over the long term. Mental attitudes and emotions are important elements in overall health and should be considered when treating illness and disease. We provide additional support with our registered social worker and registered psychotherapist. If you would like a non-verbal approach, Reiki therapy would be perfect for you.
Homeopathy is a natural, nontoxic therapeutic system of healing that assists in the inherent ability of the body to heal itself. Homeopathic medicines or “remedies” use minute amounts of plant, mineral or animal substances to stimulate a person’s innate healing ability and to strengthen the entire system.
