Mental Health and Overall Wellness

April 6, 2020

Naturopathic doctors understand that mental health is critical to our overall wellness.  This is especially true during this COVID 19 pandemic.  We're all concerned for our health and the health of our loved ones.  While we cannot avoid the stress that these concerns bring, I know how important it is to keep our stress and mood in check to help us get through these tough times.   

When we are struggling with depression, anxiety or other psychological concerns, our health can suffer. Often when we are stressed we don't always make good choices for our health.  If ...
