Anxiety or Depression

 

 

Anxiety is a mental health disorder characterized by feelings of worry, anxiety, or fears that are strong enough to interfere with one's daily activities.

Examples of anxiety disorders include panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Or, daily stress that has become unmanageable.

Symptoms include stress that's out of proportion to the impact of the event, inability to set aside a worry, and restlessness. Sometimes breathing is difficult, or you have chest tightness. You might consider yourself a worry-wart. Maybe you are always thinking the worst-case scenario, thinking of all the "what ifs", so it blocks you from achieving your goals. 

Having a traumatic experience - mental, emotional, physical or sexual abuse, can create heightened anxiety that makes you feel out of control. Sometimes, being in a car accident can trigger post-traumatic stress. Jobs in the military and first responders can experience chronic anxiety and hyper-vigilence.

I take a holistic approach and educate about the natural remedies that can help you with anxiety and depression.

And, I teach practical skills that you can use to help reduce and manage your symptoms. 

Treatment can include counseling or medications, including antidepressants if the symptoms are severe.

 

Depression is a mental health disorder characterized by persistently depressed mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily life.

The persistent feeling of sadness or loss of interest that characterizes major depression can lead to a range of behavioral and physical symptoms. These may include changes in sleep, appetite, energy level, concentration, daily behavior, or self-esteem. Major Depression can also be associated with thoughts of suicide.

Someone can experience depression because of a life event, such as a divorce, a death in the family, job loss, or even moving. These symptoms can resolve in time and with support. This type of depression is typically not considered Major Depression.
