Dr Fred van der Riet writes:
A common diagnosis for mood and stress is depression. This condition does not just need an antidepressant prescription, but can be effectively relieved by careful exploration and correction. Factors we explore include Vitamin B deficiencies, Omega 3 & 6 imbalances, folate disturbances, blood sugar correction, digestive function restoration, sleep hygiene and food intolerances. Other factors that are investigated to get a complete picture of the patient's causes include the relationship between exercise, sleep and stress management, as well your genetic make-up.
The centre point of being human is our mental, emotional and spiritual awareness. This represents our core uniqueness and the beginning of any decision or action. Buddha said: "To keep the body in good health is a duty. Otherwise, we shall not be able to keep our minds sharp and clear." This works both ways. If your body is healthy, your mind is likely to be clear and sound. A sound mind leads to a healthy body.
At Health Renewal we assist each patient through suitable dietary guidance, lifestyle advice and supplementation.
