7 Naturopathic & Homeopathic Treatments for Anxiety

1. Transform Anxiety Into Action

Anxious?

Take action.

After all, what is the feeling of anxiety?

Common descriptors include:

  • Restlessness
  • Nervousness
  • Tension
  • Worry
  • Apprehension
  • Agitation
  • Angst
  • Urgency
  • Panic
  • Movement
  • Activity

In its unqualified state, anxiety is simply an emotion.

Anxiety is not uniformly "good" or "bad"".

It is not necessarily dysfunctional.

Nor, in fact, does it always require treatment.

Anxiety - like every emotion - has its positive side.

It propels action.

But what action needs to be taken?

2. Act to Address Anxiety's Core

Anxious, nervous energy can be wasted on furtive, superficial tasks.

This is the essence of procrastination.

Expending energy on trifling, superficial activities.

While avoiding its deeper source.

3. Avoidance Amplifies Anxiety

Attempting to avoid anxiety is ultimately futile.

Avoidance simply amplifies the sensation of anxiety.

Dark spaces - mental, emotional, and physical alike - may appear innocuous on the surface.

But - just as seemingly functional, old and neglected basement walls permit mold to thrive unchecked beneath the surface - such a superficially healthy veneer may conceal a hidden underbelly of dysfunction.

If not frank, festering disease.

When neglect has permitted such advanced mold encroachment, no simple remedy will suffice.

The old walls must be torn down.

Regardless of how sturdy, functional, or healthy they may appear on the surface.

The mold must be exposed.

And its source eradicated.

Attempting to ignore or delay facing anxiety is no different.

Avoidance amplifies anxiety.

Urging you, with ever-increasing insistence, to take action.

At this point, you have two choices.

Address the source of the anxiety.

Or suppress it.

4. Symptomatic Suppression Breeds Deeper Disease

Shun symptomatic suppression.

Avoid anxiety avoidance.

Suppression permits symptoms such as anxiety to be ignored.

At first.

Providing relief.

At first.

But ultimately breeding deeper, chronic, and more severe dysfunction and disease.

After all, anxiety - like any symptom - represents an important physiological feedback system.

Suppressing, numbing, or shutting down such a feedback system is dangerous.

Like Congential Insensitivity to Pain, what superficially appears as beneficial can, in fact, produce great harm.

This is why eczema drugs such as tacrolimus (Protopic) and pimecrolimus (Elidel) include cancer among their side effects.

Or why antidepressants are similarly required to carry a FDA black-box warning that they may trigger suicide.

Yet such associations - and the FDA black-box warnings they have propagated - merely scratch the surface of the problem.

Anything - when applied symptomatically, superficially, and suppressively - can and, given enough time, will instigate deeper disease.

In the specific case of anxiety, suppression can occur via anything that masks, numbs, relieves, or superficially treats anxiety - without addressing its underlying cause.

Including superficially-prescribed:

The source of anxiety must be addressed - not suppressed.

5. Act to Address Anxiety at its Core

But how can one address this source?

Particularly as it is typically obscure and hidden?

Break down old walls.

Old, forgotten, neglected, and/or subconscious mental constructs represent a suppressive force rivalling, if not exceeding, that of any exogenous substance.

Like the anxiety itself, such constructs were once perfectly functional and healthy.

Indeed, they still often appear so - on the surface.

However, they have now long outlived their usefulness.

And - regardless of how functional and robust their superficial appearance may be - they conceal an old, dysfunctional core.

Such walls must be cleared.

Permitting new, functional, healthy structures to be constructed in their stead.

But, as mentioned above, such structures often superficially appear perfectly functional and healthy.

How can one identify, and ultimately clear, those at the core of anxiety?

6. Naturopathic Treatments to Clear Anxiety's Core

Several naturopathic treatments exist which permit the underlying cause of anxiety to be identified and treated.

Gently.

Non-invasively.

Naturally.

And very effectively.

Such treatment techniques include:

The deepest, most effective treatment for anxiety incorporates elements of each of these techniques.

And much more.

Producing a whole which is greater than the sum of its parts.

I have coined the term the Samadhi Technique to describe the system I have developed (or perhaps energetically downloaded?) over my years of practice.

Fusing the common principles of nature underlying all the above techniques with many innovations (downloads?) of my own.

Generating a single, simple, and elegantly effective method of treatment and healing.

Allowing anxiety to be resolved at its core.

Thereby permitting safe, natural, and lasting treatment.

7. Answer The Call

I am passionate about using everything I have learned, developed, and/or energetically downloaded.

To heal my patients.

And to teach others.

Thereby ultimately assisting in healing on the global scale.

This is the action to which I am called.

The action that fulfils my highest purpose.

And that which eliminates anxiety and restores health.

For patients, practitioners, and myself alike.

But that's me.

What about you?

What action will you take?

What action fulfils your highest purpose?

And what if you don't know what your highest purpose is?

What action will you take to help you discover it?

Will you, ultimately, answer the call?

The call of healing.

The call of life.

Or will you ignore it?

Avoid it?

Even suppress it?

Whatever you may choose - and whatever your highest purpose may be - I am here to help you.

In overcoming anxiety.

In healing at a deep, natural, and lasting level.

And in discovering and fulfilling your highest purpose.

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

I felt 90% better after the first Bowen therapy session with Dr. Andy.

I can't even remember now the last time I had arthritic symptoms, joint or muscle pains.

Donald W, Surrey (South Surrey / White Rock), BC

My moods aren't nearly so volatile now and I don't get the sudden spinning attacks of vertigo since Dr. Andy's homeopathic treatment.

The biofeedback has helped cure my hormonal problems, which has allowed me to conceive finally after years of trying!

The pain in my temples and big toe also went away after the Bowen therapy sessions.

G.M., Abbotsford, BC

I was suicidally depressed, and had really bad sinus, head and joint pain when I came to see Andy. His homeopathic remedy and naturopathic treatment turned my life around within weeks and - more than 5 years later - I'm doing better than ever!

M.C., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

I passed the stone with much less pain this time thanks to your homeopathic and neuroemotional treatment.

And I haven't had any stones since.

My muscles and sciatic nerve are not so inflammed since your Bowen technique therapy.

W.B., Maple Ridge (Haney), BC

My MS had gotten almost uncontrollable before I saw Andy. I was losing control of my body - my muscles, balance, and even my bladder.

And when my body wasn't failing me, I was in excruciating pain from the muscle spasms.

Dr. Somody's homeopathic remedy and biofeedback have helped me regain a huge amount of control over my body.

And the Bowen Technique that he uses helped my muscle spasticity and paralysis.

All my symptoms have decreased by more than 80%.

If everything keeps getting better at this rate, I'll be totally cured in a few weeks!

Gail, Chilliwack, BC

I've always had an addictive personality, which can be great when I put it towards something productive, like work.

Last year, before your homeopathic prescription and the neuro-emotional treatment, I was a full-blown alcoholic, and smoked four packs a day.

I'd lose myself in destructive things like gambling and food.

Now I only drink or smoke socially and irregularly ... once or twice a month maximum.

And I'm in control the whole time.

The doctor tells me my liver is doing much better too.

I'm also not coughing or hacking up stuff like I had.

C.P., Parksville, BC

I want to take the time to say how much I appreciate your excellent work in improving my health.

There was something unsettled in my gastrointestinal system that my family doctor wasn't able to fix and I was suffering daily.

In less then 6 months of being in your care I was feeling better than ever.

Not only were my specific problems taken care of but I've also noticed that my overall physical and mental health are greatly improved.

I recommend your services to any of my friends, family or co-workers who have health complaints.

Colin Aspinall, Port Coquitlam, BC

My son is much better able to open and adapt to the world since your homeopathic remedy.

He is also absorbing his food better, and is gaining weight and even meeting most of his milestones!

John D, Pitt Meadows, BC

Multiple car accidents caused me to have less mobility and huge pain and stiffness in my neck, face and jaw.

I'd get super dizzy every couple of days, and have to go throw up.

My lymph nodes were always swollen too, and I got throat infections much more often.

I felt so tightly wound at work and in my marriage too.

The homeopathy, bowen therapy and neuroemotional releases all made my neck relax, and the pain started to go away too.

I've been pain-free for months, and have finally been able to drive without fear again.

Amanda R, Maple Ridge / Pitt Meadows, BC

When I was first introduced to homeopathy by Dr Andy Somody, I was skeptical about treatment, thinking it may be something superstitious or spiritual. Nonetheless my curiosity prompted me to give it a try.

I was impressed when Dr. Andy was able to first improve and then cure my spitting of blood and aches in my neck and arms areas. These issues had been bothering me for several months (or even years) and had not responded to Western medicine, but were cured under Dr. Andy's treatment.

I've since realized homeopathy involves not just physical healing, but mental and emotional forms of healing as well. Unlike the regular doctor who usually sees one only through a physical model, visits to Dr Andy also helped me be in touch with my inner self, a part which I've left behind for years in this high-paced society. 

I've become more at peace with myself, more calm, more patient and understanding as a human being.

I believe some sicknesses and diseases are emotional and not purely organic in nature. Homeopathy seems to address conditions where regular Western medicine cannot. It is drug-free and it treats the person as a whole being and not just a body part.

This is for those who are looking for a trust-worthy and responsible healthcare provider who sees people as individuals and not one of the masses, who gives customized good service irregardless of one’s financial status, beliefs or creed, a doctor who dedicates his life and stays committed to his calling even at the expense of his time and energy.

I do not give testimonies freely but I give credit when credit is due.

I was glad I took my first step towards homeopathy with Dr Andy Somody. Not only have I benefitted from it, on the lighter side, I’ve also found a new friend here in Vancouver.

Dr. Edison Teo, Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC
