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 visited Dr. Andy for depression and after a thorough interview and muscle resistence testing I was prescribed a remedy and given a Bowen treatment.

I was literally a new person the morning after the treatment and felt ready to tackle the world again.

Dr. Andy is sympathetic and intuitive as well as knowledgeable.

His intense desire to help his patients and deep compassion brought about these quality results.

I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Andy to my friends and family.

Pam Johnson, Vancouver (Kerrisdale), B.C.

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

My tongue doesn't have that white, fuzzy coating anymore since your homeopathic treatment.

And it doesn't look so swollen, feel so sore, or seem to bleed as much.

Also, I'm not sure if it's the bowen technique or that neuroemotional work, but something you've done has made me feel so normal, that I almost forget I used to have such terrible burping, nausea, and heartburn.

Brittany, Port Coquitlam, 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

I don't get the tingling, throbbing, or burning herpes nerve pain in my back and pelvic area since your homeopathy treatment!

The blood pressure is getting lower, especially the diastolic, and my blood sugar has gone down with the neuroemotional releases.

Jackie, Port Moody (Anmore / Belcarra), BC

My meniere’s disease, including the vertigo and nausea, went away after I was treated by Dr. Andy’s remedy, and the recurrences have become increasingly less frequent and intense. I've been doing so well that I haven't needed treatment for months!

F.L., Richmond, BC

Andy helped me overcome my battles with alcohol addiction, and I don't get anymore liver pain.

The warts on my feet are gone, and I don't get the tonsillitis every winter like I used too either.

K.S., West Vancouver (Dundarave), BC

My only reason for trying Dr. Andy's treatment was to help me quit smoking.

If that had been all that he did, I would have already been satisfied.

Needless to say, I was pretty blown away when the homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional releases not only helped me quit smoking (going on 1 year now) but also made my stools better (less painful, blood and frequent).

The Bowen therapy also seemed to make made me less depressed in winter, and helped straighten the curvature in my spine.

I also get hardly any pain during my flow now, and the flow isn't as crazy heavy as it was.

A.P., Victoria (Saanich), BC

Back & sleep both are very good now - I don't feel pain or tight muscles any more! Mind is less anxious and worried too, and eyes don't blink without control as before.

Christine R., North Vancouver (Pemberton Heights), B.C.

My jaw had been frozen shut by a bony fusion, and nerve damage from many destructive surgeries.

I had such severe and destructive scar tissue in my mouth.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, neuro-emotional work, and especially the Bowen therapy helped to unlock my jaw and break up this scar tissue.

My nerve pain is also less intense than it's been in years, and is still getting better with every treatment.

Brent G, Burnaby (Whalley, North Surrey), BC
