It’s hard to understate the impact of a mental health problem. It can make the simple act of getting through your day very, very difficult.
Conditions like clinical depression, anxiety and constant irritability hurt the most important things in life, like your relationships with loved ones, your ability to work and most importantly, you. Battling depression and anxiety can rob you of the simple enjoyment of the little things which comprise so much of our everyday lives.
Our practitioners understand this. We will work with you to find the underlying causes and provide treatment that is tailored for your circumstances.
Conditions we treat
Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD)
Post partum depression
Uncontrollable anger episodes
Poor stress tolerance
Overcoming mental health problems can be hard work. When you are in the thick of it, thinking that you could once again be happy, relaxed or able to control your emotions can seem like an impossible dream. This is true of kids as much as it is adults.
At Radius Health we not only believe it is possible to get better, we know it is. For some patients it means psychological support with a psychologist or counsellor and/or antidepressants. For others it can require a multi-faceted approach. Looking into the role your biochemistry plays in your mood disturbances can deliver huge benefits. Our practitioners explore what is happening internally to cause your anxiety, depression or other mental health problems.
Correcting your biochemistry could be the major piece of the puzzle required for balance, or it could be the first piece of the puzzle. Identifying biochemical imbalances helps us find the answer that may have been missing for years. At Radius we focus on treating the person not the condition.
With the use of nutritional and herbal medicine we can help correct the underlying causes of mood disturbances and the great thing is these treatment options are side-effect free. Through it all, we’ll stand by your side, explain every step in plain English and devise a treatment plan which reflects your unique circumstances.
About Your Appointment
We love the phrase ‘knowledge is power’. It illustrates our entire approach to healthcare. When you have a detailed understanding of your situation, you are empowered to make the decisions necessary to resolve your health issues. The more knowledge we have as your practitioner, the better we are at uncovering the root causes of your illness and devising the right treatment for it.
We obtain that information from various sources. We compile it during our consultations by assessing your case and family history, and by analysing your signs and symptoms. We also use scientifically-rigorous testing and will consult the medical literature relevant to your case.
While every client has individual needs, we have a list of guiding principles that underpin our practice. These are:
