Mental Health

When overwhelmed by life’s stresses and challenges, it’s easy to feel isolated. You are not alone!.

Optimal health and well-being encompasses not only physical health but mental and emotional health. Mental Health disorders are not limited to a special subset of the population; they can affect anyone, at any time.

In fact 45% of the population will suffer a mental health disorder at some point in their life. At Journey to Health we can help.

Traditionally, individuals suffering such imbalances have been treated through psychological and pharmaceutical methods, however, due to a growing awareness of biochemical individuality a better understanding of the role that nutrition plays in mental health has been developed. The program utilised by Patricia produces treatment priorities tailor made for individual patients by assessing a range of neurotransmitters and chemical messengers including serotonin, dopamine, acetycholine, opioids, GABA, histamine, adrenaline, phenylethylamine and melatonin as well as genetic factors such as kryptopyrolles and MTHFR.

The pressure on women today to be superhuman is enormous.
We are often expected to juggle home, work, kids and husbands. Often these expectations are put on us by ourselves. This more often than not leads to increased stress levels, insomnia, anxiety or sometimes even depression.
Natural therapies can help significantly with mental health issues such as anxiety, stress or depression, and the remedies are safe, gentle and non-addictive.

Patricia’s training includes pharmacology- so she understands what is contraindicated to prescribe with your medication as well as what will improve the efficacy and decrease the side effects of prescription drugs.
