'A NATUROPATHIC APPROACH TO MENTAL HEALTH AND STRESS' - DR. SCOTT BUESING
EVENT ALREADY TOOK PLACE
Depression, anxiety, burnout, and stress are all extremely common in modern day society. Standard medical approaches, raising neurotransmitters like serotonin and norepinephrine with drugs have been shown to have limited benefits with concerning side effects. Yet, when you look at the research, it becomes clear that there are numerous contributing factors to how we feel and these factors are commonly overlooked by western medicine.
Naturopathic medicine as a core principle includes the concept of "Treat the Cause". Individuals struggling with stress may have nutritional deficiencies, poor dietary habits, hormonal dysregulation, increased inflammation, infections and even toxicity in some cases that can contribute negatively to how we feel.
A naturopathic approach can often help an individual significantly on their path back to wellbeing by identifying these problems and treating them directly.
