If you suffer from mental health issues such as stress, depression or anxiety, you are definitely not alone. Mental health conditions are escalating in our society, with around 10 percent of Australians now suffering from depression. Studies show that eating disorders, insomnia, alcoholism, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease are also on the rise.
Depression and mental illness can often interfere with how you function on a day-to-day basis. Like any disease progression, mental health issues can be caused by a combination of nutritional, hormonal, environmental and hereditary factors. However, there is hope and there is help with natural medications and psychological therapies. Both modalities are proving to be very successful in treating mental illness and mood disorders.
At Darling Health, our practitioners can explore the underlying causes of your condition. A treatment plan is formulated that goes beyond the management of symptoms to promote long-term healing and improved overall outcomes.
