Stress Clinic


The Stress Clinic runs all year round. Stress seems to affect most people at some stage or another in today’s world. This is often due to time restraints, financial pressure, relationship or work stress. Often old coping strategies are not working, or in other cases coping mechanisms are fine but the stress is taking its toll physically ~ resulting in insomnia, anxiety, mood changes, irritability, fatigue, low motivation or lack of sexual desire and hormonal issues.

Stress often creeps up on us and we may not notice the signs. Stress can not only affect our nervous system but also our digestive system, our hormonal system and our immune systems. If we do not address stress at the time it can slide into depression or chronic anxiety. In these cases medications are useful and herbal remedies can work alongside medications or to treat mild depression. It is important to make sure you see a qualified practitioner in this case so we can assess the herbs we use especially if taking medications. Herbal medicines and nutraceuticals can be very effective at treating not only the symptoms of stress such as low energy but also addressing the nervous system helping to relieve anxiety and sleeplessness. By working in clinic together you start exploring natural remedies for stress and you will find they become part of your treatment arsenal. We can help you start to treat you and the way your body reacts to stress which is always individual and unique.

Our Stress Clinic aims to help you identify your triggers and warning signs well as teach you how to include ways to reduce the stress in your life. These simple techniques can be included in your daily life to help you keep your stress hormones under control. We then determine what herbs work for you in what situations so that you can utilise the herbal remedies that we have available. As we see you in follow ups, we determine what works for you and we are able to paint you a picture of how to look after yourself better.

If we don’t address stress in our life we can easily become run down or exhausted from the constantly high stress hormones. This puts extra pressure on our immune system and inflammation can raise as we aren’t able to keep up with the demand. We can experience insomnia which adds to fatigue and compounds our issues. This also means our body gets depleted from valuable nutrients. Left untreated, stress can manifest into other disorders. To get onto stress early {or late!} book into our Stress Clinic:

  • 1 hour and 15 minute initial appointment ~ We go over your symptoms and talk about what you may need to embark on your journey. We start with herbs and supplements that can help alleviate your symptoms and we assess your underlying triggers.
  • 45 minute follow up ~ You then go away and start the treatments and lifestyle changes and come back to assess what has changed. We then either carry on unchanged or add and change the treatments to get a deeper kind of relief. We also start to address the underlying factors be it stress, digestion or  immunity.
  • 30 minute follow up ~ Further changes to your diet and lifestyle take longer to implement and if things are going well a maintenance plan can be made. For others, time and patience may require that you work on it for longer to get the desired results.
  • 15 minute follow up ~ From here we make a long term plan and decide what will help keep your stress levels down.

Follow up appointments can be made in order to further track your progress.

All appointments involve a referral to a medical practitioner if necessary.
