We are a national online Sydney & Glen Innes based clinic offering natural treatments for mental health. Our service is confidential, flexible and affordable.
We focus on stress, fatigue, anxiety, depression and thyroid health. Our approach is integrative meaning we work alongside your doctor and psychologist/psychiatrist and specialists to integrate your care for better outcomes.
Evidence based natural treatments for depression and anxiety
Did you know that scientific evidence supports the use of herbal and nutritional medicines in the treatment of anxiety and depression?
Clinical trials have found multiple herbal medicines to be as effective as SSRI’s (antidepressant medications) with less side effects! It’s important to have the guidance of a degree qualified naturopath to understand how to use natural medicines. Natural medicines may be used either along side your prescribed medications or as an alternative to conventional medicines.
We work with your doctor
If you are currently taking medication you must continue as prescribed by your doctor/s and manage the medication with your medical team. We can work alongside your medication to ensure optimal production of neurotransmitters using nutritional cofactors. Evidence supports the use of adjuvant nutritional medicines to enhance the effect of your medications.
If you are not on medication and are suffering with anxiety or depression there are many natural options available to you. Allow us to guide you through this time with a holistic health assessment to ensure underlying causes that affect mood
We also offer genetic testing to help identify which medications may be best suited to your individual metabolism and provide a report for your medical team to consider.
Your holistic treatment plan will offer diet and lifestyle advice and consider environmental factors as part of your prescription.
“nutrition and nutraceuticals should now be considered as mainstream elements of psychiatric practice, with research, education, policy, and health promotion reflecting this new paradigm.” (International Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research consensus position statement: nutritional medicine in modern psychiatry, 2015)
