Today’s Theme: Mental Health
Read about today’s theme and then answer the question to enter the daily contest.
Anxiety is the most common mental disorder in Canada, but did you know that there are many possible causes for anxiety? Some less commonly known causes can include vitamin and mineral deficiencies (which can be induced by stress, lifestyle and certain medications), hormonal imbalance, food intolerances, poor digestive function, imbalanced intestinal bacteria, blood sugar fluctuations, as well as the expression of certain genes.
When you see a Naturopathic Doctor, we assess all the mental, emotional, physical and lifestyle factors that can affect your health. We make sure blood work and lab tests reflect optimal levels of nutrients and physiological function based on the latest research and our clinical expertise. We look to correct these causative factors so that you can gain control of your life and be free of anxiety.
