Healing Your Sleep and Mood Disorders Naturally
Most sleep and mood disorders are treated with antidepressants and mood-stabilizing medications such as Zoloft and Benzodiazepines. While these methods can prove to be successful at giving you relief, they are not treating the underlying cause of your disorders. When left untreated, you are ultimately left reliant on taking medications for a prolonged period of time or worse, for the rest of your life.
Taking these types of medications doesn’t only come with a slew of additional symptoms, but they leave you feeling like anything but yourself. This doesn’t mean that you should stop taking your medication, as this is often necessary. Functional medicine is not against taking medicine. We believe that medication is sometimes necessary, but it shouldn’t be the only form of treatment.

These natural, efficient, and non-invasive techniques have helped people just like you in the Ashboro area eliminate the need for medication and begin living their life fully.
What Causes Sleep and Mood Disorders?
Most people are under the impression that these problems are the result of chemical imbalances. While in some instances this may be true, there are a number of things that cause sleep and mood disorders. Things such as poor gut health, hormones, inflammation, and environmental toxins are avoidable and a direct cause of many problems you’re experiencing. And by simply addressing these causes, you’re able to eliminate the need for medication and improve your symptoms.
Let’s take a closer look at how these things affect not only your mood but also your overall health. You’ve likely heard before that your overall health starts with your gut. When your gut isn’t healthy, it’s impossible for you to be healthy. That’s because when your gut isn’t healthy, your body isn’t able to function properly. This directly affects your mood, causing insomnia, depression, and anxiety. Not to mention many other health-related issues. By repairing your gut health, you will restore the connection between your gut and brain, ultimately improving your mood and overall health.
Inflammation is the leading cause of many health-related issues and can affect the way we feel and has a negative effect on the mind. This is often a result of toxins from the foods that we eat, as well as environmental.
Hormone imbalances can affect us in a variety of ways. Hormone signals regulate nearly every function within our body. And when it isn’t producing the correct amount of hormones, it throws our body functions out of whack.
Nearly every problem begins with a poor diet and chronic stress. And it’s why restoring balance in your body, whether it’s a lack of hormones, vitamins, or toxins it’s essential to getting relief naturally.
