Natural Solutions for Anxiety

Treat Anxiety NaturallyLife seems like it is getting more and more overwhelming these days.  We often hear  how stressed out people are on a daily basis, frequently using terms like “anxious,” “irritable” and “depressed.”

Because these  conditions are more prevalent nowadays, we see a lot more use of  meds like Xanax and Klonopin, while  antidepressants, such as Paxil and Zoloft have become the most prescribed class of drugs for 18-44 year-olds.

Yes, because of all the stress and overwhelm, the drug companies saw a need to serve us some more pills for the proverbial “quick fix”.

If you’re reading about this because you don’t want to have to depend on popping a pill to feel better when those stressful days get you down,  you’re in luck.

Natural treatments for anxiety and depression can take on a few different forms, as our mood is comprised of a number of different contributing factors, starting with what we eat.

Just like we need food for energy, we also need it for a calm, stable, and clear state of mind.

If we don’t give our body what it needs, we can become deprived of the nutrients required to help us stay alert, rational, and healthy (both mentally and physically).

For instance, we often see patients that,  after testing, we discover are deficient in iron or vitamin B12, which  can have many negative mental and physical symptoms.

Magnesium is another crucial nutrient that many of us are deprived of.  Mg can help us stay calm and clear-headed, relieve tension,  even helping us sleep better.

Food sensitivities and /or allergies  are also  a known contributor to anxiety and depression.

Even though other parts of your body may not be giving you symptoms of a sensitivity or intolerance to food, these “toxins” can get into your blood stream and interfere with brain function.

This can  cause brain fog, fatigue, and higher levels of stress.

Having an intolerance to gluten in particular can have enormous adverse affects on your body and mind,  including depression, anxiety, irritability, attention deficit, headaches, and exhaustion.

We have tested many patients, both young and old,  for gluten intolerance and they have made dramatic improvements in their health with the proper diet.

Sleep also plays a a big part in our mental state.  Without enough rest, we’re susceptible to distraction, exhaustion, depression and anxiety.

Getting enough sleep makes it  easier to focus on the  positives and the tasks at hand, rather than the negative things going on around us.

Getting out for some fresh air and exercise can be vital for our emotional health.  Exercise is know as the “great anti depressant.”

Think you don’t have time, just get outside and take a walk for starters. Come on, we live in beautiful, sunny Florida!

From the structural side, people with higher levels of anxiety, stress and depression typically have more muscle tension, especially in their head and neck, shoulders and back.

Getting a proper chiropractic adjustment along with  muscle treatment can relieve the tension and stress, improve sleep, and help to balance the body.

So, before resorting to a pill  to temporarily fix the overwhelming day, think about approaching it with the simple things our bodies need:  proper nutrition, rest, exercise, and structural health.

 

Yours for optimal health,

Dr. Tom Rofrano

    I was in a very sickly state with very high blood pressure, Epstein Barr Virus, severe digestive issues, IBS, and constant UTI ‘s that were always back to back. My cholesterol was 244 and my inflammation was off the... charts / extremely high!!!! I decided to read “free diet” book written by Dr Rofrano. It made total sense, so I decided to proceed with the blood tests. This is when I discovered all my lab work was in a very poor state. He uncovered a lot of information and made me aware of why my health was poor and why I was feeling badly!!! I started to follow the diet and take the suggested supplements. Within 5 to 6 weeks everything turned around for me. My labs were nearly perfect in all the previously scary areas where the numbers were completely out of range. I am feeling much better and I am raving about the free diet / supplements that Dr Rofrano can offer you for your specific issues. he is gifted to know exactly how to help each person deal with their health issues. I am grateful to God I found him and had the initiative to move forward!!!! PTL !!!!read more

    My health had been declining over the last 5 years. I have consulted with no less than 6 naturopaths. Non of which was able to help me regain my health. After more recent lab tests my Feritin level had skyrocketed at... which point now I was worried. Every one I spoke to said the only option was to do leeching (where they draw out your blood periodically). That did not sound like an option. Then I found Dr Rofrano. To be honest I was extremely skeptical as I have spend lots of money and time with other naturopaths only to end up right back at the beginning. However I had nothing to loose (other than $$$) I decided to give him one try before I competely gave up. I can say I am 100% happy!!!... After an in-depth consultation, and extensive testing. Many deficiencies were uncovered not to mention, sensitivities, thyroid, hormones, high cholesterol the list goes on and on. We began a supplement regiment to get things back on track. Its now 6 weeks later. My labs have significantly improved, my cholesterol is now in normal range, my feritin level has significantly dropped and I am feeling a lot better. Its still early and my body has more healing to do. I am ecstatic to say we are on the right track. My labs have never looked better. If you are just not feeling well and really need to find a solution would highly recommend you contact the Natural Medicine Clinic and speak to Dr Tom Rofrano.. you will NOT be dissapointed.read more

    Stay away. Extremely expensive for results. All they want to do is throw pills at you for thousands of dollars.. Not worth the money.Find someone who takes an interest in your health not your wallet.
