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

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

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

Penetrative sex had always been painful and almost impossible for me, and I had started to think I just wasn't meant to have a pleasurable sex life! The homeopathic remedy and naturopathic recommendations have allowed me to enjoy sex with my current partner for the first time ever, and we are both very happy!

Stephanie, Richmond, BC

It's like a miracle! All my muscle pain adn spasms have disappeared since your treatment, and I don't constantly feel tired or worn down anymore either.

L.S., New Westminster, BC

The candida didn't go away right away after your homeopathic drops - but, by the next day, it seemed like it wasn't bothering me so much.

The emotional releases seemed to help me not have such smelly, gross armpit sweat, especially during or after sleep.

The perpetual weakness I'd had since mono now only affects me rarely, and isn't as debilitating as before.

And I've lost 31 lbs since the treatment began about 6 months ago.

I guess I've changed my diet, but it happened so gradually and naturally since your treatment that I didn't even realize anything had changed until my friends told me I was eating differently.

Deb L., Los Angeles (Huntington Beach), California

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

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

Physically, I wasn’t sick in the sense of major disease or sickness. But if I was to keep going the way I was. I would have been for sure soon!

Being troubled with stomach issues for sometime, and having emotion issues I wasn’t even aware of.  

Before I met Dr. Andy Somody, my journey first started at a walk in clinic, where I was put through some blood and stool test after a quick intake. 

My test came back and I was told I have a parasite. I was put on antibiotics and it completely wiped me out. It wasn’t a pleasant experiences at all! 

After all that, I still had painfully stomach issues. I guess it wasn’t the parasite. That upset me a lot to think I poisoned my body for no reason with drugs. I was then told that I had IBS.

After doing some research about IBS I thought it was time to get a second opinion. Why do western doctors just treat the “what” and not want to figure out the “why” so it wont happen again? The reason I went to the walk in clinic in the first place was because my family doctor was a drug pusher who really didn’t listen to me and made me stupid for not wanting to put drugs into my system. 

I chose then to see Dr. Andy Somody.

I called him up made an appointment for the next Saturday. 

I was very pleased that I didn’t need to take anymore time off work and that he was available on Saturday.

My first appointment reassured me that this was the right choice for me.

Andy listened to everything I said.

He asked me question, that I never I been asked before.

He provoked thoughts in me that I never even new existed in me.

My cure was a simple but profound one.

I was stressed out from work and I was going down the wrong path in life. The balance in my life was way off.

I am pleased to say that the pieces of my life are coming together and I’ve never been happier!

(which I never thought could happen, because I thought I was already happy.)

The pieces were always there in front of me - I just didn’t know what to do with them.

I owe Andy for helping me figuring it out, by opening my mind and spirit.

By listening and showing me love and compassion.

Andy has a true calling for naturopathic medicine.

Which has inspired me do what I love.

I am free of all pains and have learnt the ability to listen to my body for what needs it has at the time.

Thank you, Dr. Andy!

Jennie Robinson, Richmond, 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

My blood sugar was crazy - going up and down, and really all over the map.

My eyes and kidneys were really getting destroyed by the diabetes, and I already had had problems with both of them before!

Andy's homeopathy, naturopathic and neuroemotional techniques helped my blood sugar stabilize when nothing else was helping.

I notice the swelling and urination problems are much less now. I even got new glasses because my vision's so much better!

Anna L, Pitt Meadows, BC
