I’m a firm believer in a holistic approach to treating anxiety and stress. There’s most likely more than one reason why you feel anxious and there’s more than one way to fix it!
There’s so many things that can cause anxiety to crop up in your body. It could be partly hereditary, there could be a physiological imbalance in your body, it could be something stemming from childhood, or cumulative effects of stress over time, which for most people is the culprit.
All of these things mentioned above can bring about panic attacks and anxiety disorders. Once we develop a problem with anxiety there are many factors that can perpetuate the problem. This could include some things as simple as shallow breathing, poor nutrition or muscle tension, suppressed emotions, avoiding behaviors, anxious self talk, low self-esteem and lack of self care habits.
Because anxiety can be brought on and perpetuated by so many things, it’s so important to take a comprehensive approach in treating anxiety.
I’m a firm believer in taking a whole approach to achieving whole health. I spent years putting all my energy on the fact that my food choices were going to take my anxiety away. Nutrition definitely helps and it’s something you can easily control, but it’s not everything. I found it got me about 50% better but there was still room to improve.
If you want to heal your anxiety you need to look into healing on a physical level, an emotional (or I would call this an energetic) level, behavioral, mental, relationship, and spiritual level.
Honestly, there’s probably not 1 reason why you’re feeling anxious and there’s not going to be one magic solution that takes it all away.
You can put together your own recovery program or work with a health coach to help you develop a program that takes into consideration all of these areas. If you need some ideas on how to do this feel free to schedule a call with me at the link below and I’d love to help you out!
To YOUR Health!
