Can anti-depressants heal a broken heart?

21 October 2008

We all know the answer to this is NO! So what can we do to heal the real cause of our suffering? Natural approaches include Counselling, Kinesiology, Naturopathy and Hypnotherapy. All these modalities aim at treating the underlying cause of depression and anxiety. We don’t manifest symptoms out of no where, there is always a cause and more often than not the cause lies in our emotional health and wellbeing. Kinesiology looks at underlying belief patterns that prevent us from moving forward in life. We often hold self limiting beliefs that hold us back from experiencing true joy and happiness. By addressing these and letting go of the past, the pain and suffering of depression and anxiety can begin to be released. Naturopathy looks at supporting the body physically and emotionally through anxiety and depression. Nutrition, Herbal medicine and even Flower essences are fantastic in supporting us while we look deeper into emotional causes. Nutritional deficiencies like Zinc, Magnesium and Essential Fatty Acids have all been linked to increased incidences of depression and anxiety. Hypnotherapy is an excellent way to move through mental blockages that stop us from having the life we desire. Hypnotherapy is the therapy of choice when we really don’t know the cause of our emotional suffering.
