Have you forgotten about your SOUL? - Your Best Friend?
We as a whole have entered a "Spiritual Crisis" if you will. We have become educated in the Body and the Mind, but forgotten about the most important part of ourselves, which is the Soul, the Spirit. The Soul plays a huge part in our mental and physical wellbeing, but we have become to scared to address this in a regular "Doctors" visit. Scared of he unknown, scared of starting a war, scared of insulting, scared of being sued, scared of being called a quack or a hippy.....when innately most of us know there is more to us than beyond the Flesh.
This is something Sabrina takes seriously and incorporates in her care with Depression, Pain, Fertility, etc.
Get reacquainted with your SOUL, Your Best Friend.
Natural Remedies for Depression and Natural Anxiety Treatments are a common request for clients seeking care from Fertile Way. Most often they will accompany other ailments and prescriptions. To guarantee we are providing care safely, disclosing all prescriptions is a must and in turn we ask that you converse with your Western MD about any treatments you seek in addition to their care.
While Depression and Anxiety are commonly diagnosed through, emotional symptoms you will often experience physical symptoms as well. These may include:
- Low Libido
- Joint Pain
- Restless Sleep
- Digestive Disturbances
- Chronic Pain Between the Shoulder Blades
In Chinese Medicine a common diagnostic tool is to look for the Shen or Spirit in a patients eyes. We all know intuitively that the sparkle or blank stare in an individuals eyes, is an indication of the balance or imbalance of the inner self. Each and everyone of us have experienced "Depression" or "Anxiety" at a time during our lives, but here at Fertile Way we look at this as being a gift. When an imbalance arrises, this is the way our body communicates with us whether it is on a physical, mental, or spiritual basis. There is no judgement, we use your symptoms as a guidance tool.
What are common symptoms individuals experience with Depression and Anxiety?
- Heart Palpatations
- No Motivation
- Crying Spells
- Pressure in Chest
- Avoiding Social Settings
- Panick Attacks
- Suicidal Thoughts
- Lack Of Emotion
How Can We Help?
Chinese Herbs: Most prescription drugs are derived from plants, tree, and fungus but can carry a long list of side effects because they are not naturally metabolized in the body. All our herbal products go through a rigorous testing process insuring the highest quality for our clients. We are well versed in pharmagology for any drug-herbal interactions.
EFT ( Emotional Freedom Techniques): This is an Alternative Intervention Technique utilizing the tapping of Acupuncture points while a client focuses on specific issues. This helps connect the right and left hemispheres of the brain, creating new neuro-pathways to help address belief systems that contribute to physical, mental and emotional imbalances. Over the years Fertile Way has found this technique to be one of the quickest natural anxiety treatments with lasting results.
Flower Essences: Developed by the English Physician Dr. Edward Bach, Flower Essences along with Homeopathics enjoy a reputation of being highly beneficial and safe to use. They can be presented in liquid or sugar pill form. This modality helps to nourish the spirit, just as food sustains the human body. Natural remedies for depression are an effective addition for those taking prescription drugs without any side effects.
Custom Formulas: After an initial consultation our pracitioners will continue to research your specific needs and formulate a capulated or tea formula.
Visualization & Affirmations: There is a large body of scientific evidence showing that the mind and body are closing linked. A fact that has been known for thousands of years in Traditional Medicine. These are crucial techniques where patients can be actively involved in their care.
Acupuncture: Gaining ground in North America, Acupuncture can raise Serotonin Levels, balance the Immune and Endocrine System and provide mental and emotional support while calming the mind. Scientific evidence has shown it to be effective for Depression and Anxiety.
Holistic Nutrition: Focuses on Natural Whole Food consumption addressing deficiencies through dietary sources. We recommend you follow one primary rule when choosing foods; consume foods as close to it’s original source as possible.
Acutonics: Much like Physiotherapists use Ultrasound to relieve pain we use the "original" version; tuning forks. Sound vibration in treament draws more blood and oxygen to the area, supporting healing and calming the mind. Intuitively we know sound heals through singing and listening. A unique treatment protocol that once experienced even the cynic won’t rival.
