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

Before coming to see you, if I ate anything but raw food, I'd feel like my abdomen was so bloated, painful and swollen.

I would get tired and fuzzy in the head from eating almost anything!

Another naturopath diagnosed me with leaky gut, but the supplements she prescribed didn't really help that much.

Your homeopathic remedy and Bowen therapy made a huge difference though.

And I was happy to not have to take so many vitamins!

The mental-emotional technique also made me aware of the past events that had probably contributed to my health problems.

I also appreciated that you could tell me what foods were good for my body, and which foods I was allergic to.

Although, as you told me would happen, it seems these allergies have become less with time, I can now eat almost anything without having any gas, pain, confusion or tiredness.

Bernadette, Vancouver (West Point Grey), BC

I didn't think alternative medicine, naturopathy or homeopathy could make my eyes better, but they are!

Not perfect yet, but getting better with every treatment.

My back pain is also much less with the Bowen Therapy.

And the homeopathy, neuroemotional releases and biofeedback have also helped me lose 35 pounds and keep it off.

Dave Smith, Maple Ridge, BC

Andy used homeopathy and bowen technique to treat the itching, burning pimples I used to have around my mouth.

My skin was already feeling better after the treatment, and my face cleared up after a couple of weeks.

I've had the occasional pimple since then, but the homeopathy treatment always seems to make my skin clear up really quickly.

Adam B, Surrey (White Rock / South Surrey), BC

I had a constrictive sensation in throat – like someone was pushing on it with a nail – and stabbing pain where the jaw meets the ear.

The left side of my head went numb and I had a really really loud & tinny sound in my ear.

Then I started having bursts of vertigo. Andy's homeopathic and naturopathic treatments, and all the neuro-emotional work we did, made my throat pain,  much less, and after a couple of months, they went away totally.

A.P., Richmond, BC

Hannah is doing REALLY well - straighter then I have seen her in a while - NO spasms - and even her arm is better!!

She has been using ONLY homeopathy and Bowen to battle a crippling disease, Torsion Dystonia.

Her response has been baffling to neurologists and traditional doctors who are amazed and astounded at her ability to walk, run and carry on normally in life.

Andy's assessment and ability to relate to my teenage daughter were wonderful and her reaction to the remedies and treatment has been so positive.

Hannah Schell, Ottawa, Ontario

A root canal I had done a long time ago was done improperly.

My cheek was swollen on one side from a painful abscess in my gum and tooth.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, neuroemotional clearings, and Bowen therapy helped this drain within hours.

I couldn't believe how much better it looked the next day!

I barely ever feel the pain anymore; and if I do, Andy's remedy seems to have made it go away everytime.

A.F., Maple Ridge, BC

I can sleep so much better with the homeopathic remedy!

Andy's neuroemotional therapy helped my headaches and blood pressure to decrease in intensity.

And the neck pain is gradually getting better with his Bowen technique.

Jenny W, Mission (Hatzic), BC

I have been so fortunate to be one of Dr. Somody's patients and have to say that he is one of the most competent people I know.

I had painful stiffness, swelling, and arthritic pain in my hand joints.

And then it changed, and went to my tendons.

I would get throbbing pain in my fingers at night, I couldn't bend my fingers or work properly.

I also would get these little knobs or growths on the joints.

The joints would get really inflammed and red.

Some doctors once told me it was gout or a type of arthritis related to psoriasis.

I also had psoriasis that caused painful cracking and flaking skin on my hands.

Dr. Somody's homeopathic remedy and other naturopathic approaches made all these much better.

For instance after the first few days I could already notice the joints were less swollen and painful.

After a couple of months the joints, skin and tendons were at least 50% better.

They just kept getting better over the next few months and other than a rare flare-up I don't have these things any more.

I haven't had to see Dr. Somody or any other doctor again in years and I consider myself cured.

If it wasn't for him I would probably still be suffering from these problems or even unable to work.
