3 Tips to Improve Your Mental Health

Dr. Cutler will explore the root causes of your mental health concerns and develop a comprehensive plan to help you feel better physically and mentally. Improving your mental health goes hand in hand with balancing your physical and emotional health.

How Does Naturopathic Medicine View Mental Health?

Traditional medicine tends to view mental health as a disease, and they treat it with medications to manage the symptoms. Naturopathic medicine sees mental health issues as a symptom of a larger systemic imbalance. Instead of masking your symptoms, they work to restore the balance between mind and body,

What Causes Mental Health Concerns?

We experience many stressors throughout our everyday lives. The constant stress leads to a cascade of hormones that keep our bodies and minds in a permanent state of high alert. This affects sleep, metabolism, and physical health. It can also lead to depression and anxiety. Many types of physical imbalances can lead to symptoms of depression or anxiety. These conditions respond well to lifestyle adjustments and natural supplement support.

3 Tips to Improve Your Mental Health

Naturopathic medicine does not offer a pill to numb all your anxiety or depression within a week. It utilizes methods that you can maintain for life, so your mental health symptoms remain under control while your physical health improves. These tips can help improve your mental health and restore your natural balance

1. Detoxify

Our bodies experience a barrage of potentially harmful environmental stressors each day. Toxic materials can accumulate in the body and cause physical and mental health issues. Most of us have regular exposure to neurotoxic chemicals that can cause mental health problems. Detoxification rids the body of these toxins and their effects. 

2. Manage Your Physical Health

While not as easy as a pill, nutritional management and physical activity have a much more positive effect on your mental health. With a nutritional plan tailored to meet your needs and any possible deficiencies, your brain will have the fuel it needs to function better. Physical activity produces hormones that boost mental health and feelings of well-being. 

3. Reduce Stress

The hormones triggered by chronic stress can wreak havoc throughout your body. They also contribute to anxiety and depression. The effects of stress hormones keep your body constantly prepared to fight or flee, a state that leaves you exhausted and feeling even more stressed. By identifying and removing stressors in your life, you can significantly improve your mental health

How are Mental Health Concerns Treated?

Dr. Cutler will begin with a thorough consultation and a series of tests. One type of test can see how your brain chemical levels are impacting your mental health. Dr. Cutler can then supplement those chemicals so you start feeling better naturally. Other tests will determine whether you have dietary imbalances, a burden of toxins, or other issues. Dr. Cutler creates an individualized nutrition plan for each patient. He also acts as a guide in helping people discover physical activities they enjoy and ways to reduce stress from their lives.
