Physical and mental health are closely inter-related. Here are some key areas that often go unaddressed by psychotherapists and doctors. These factors can play a very important role in resolving both physical and mental health issues, including anxiety, blushing, depression, insomnia, PTSD, stress, mood and fatigue issues, and much more.
Nutritional Holistic Health Solutions for Anxiety, Blushing, Depression and Insomnia:
Here are some of the most helpful nutritional and holistic solutions to improve both your physical and mental health:
Diet and Nutritional Solutions for Anxiety: There is not one diet for all, needs also change during different periods of a person’s life. Very important for everyone is to avoid chemicals and additives that are often found in processed foods, beauty products and household cleaners. These can disrupt your endocrine system and hormones. Choose natural and organic foods. Choose natural products. When supplementing your diet, choose the highest quality, well-researched professional supplements. Long Natural Health is one such place to find such supplements. LNH also carries valuable health tests you can do at home. (I founded this company over 20 years ago to make it easy to find high quality, natural and holistic health solutions.)
Food Sensitivities and High Histamine Foods: I suggest getting familiar with high histamine foods. Eating too much of these foods played a part in my anxiety and blushing. Avoiding them helps a lot. Also, be aware of excess sugar, caffeine, alcohol and gluten.
Adrenal and Thyroid Health: Adrenal stress, thyroid disorders and endocrine imbalances can play a key role in mental and emotional health issues. It is wise to support these glands with a healthy diet and natural nutritional supplements. Adaptogenic herbs can be very helpful, as can amino acids, B vitamins and other targeted nutrition. One suggestion: try drinking Holy Basil (Tulsi) tea throughout the day to lower stress and anxiety.
Neurotransmitters and Hormones: An imbalance in neurotransmitters or hormones are often involved in issues such as anxiety, blushing, depression, OCD, PTSD and insomnia. Pharmaceutical medications attempt to resolve these issues, though often with side-affects and not very successfully. There are scientific natural solutions, such as Sanesco. I have personally used the Sanesco program successfully, as have clients of mine. The Sanesco HPA-G test can be sent to you at home. This extensive lab test will evaluate your neurotransmitters, adrenal function, cortisol and hormone levels. Read more about Sanesco testing and supplements here.

Exercise: Daily exercise and some strenuous exercise 2-3x a week is key to keeping your body and mind healthy. There is a wealth of research and information already existing on this. Gyms and exercise classes are great, so are sports, hiking, yoga and dance. There are so many ways to exercise. Be sure to spend plenty of time outdoors in nature and sunlight. Time outdoors in nature is one of the greatest healers for anxiety and stress.
Environment: The environments of our homes, bedrooms, offices, and anywhere we spend a lot of time has a strong affect on our health and well-being. You want your environment to not only be safe and comfortable, but to have a feeling of beauty and connection to nature. Colors are important. You want to have natural things such as plants, animals or pets, stones and minerals. They bring good energy into your home and help keep you connected to nature. The use of natural fibers is important too. Get rid of clutter. A clean organized home brings peace.
Electromagnetic and WiFi Pollution: Be sure where you sleep and wherever you spend a lot of time is away from large electrical devices and electric wires. The bedroom should be free of all electronics. Do not sleep with electric blankets. At night you want to turn off your WiFi. I have mine on a timer so I can set it and forget it. Place your cell phone on airplane mode if near your bed. And do not have clock radios or electric wires within five feet of your head and body.
Grounding and Earthing: Find a way daily to connect to the earth. Walking with bare feet directly on the earth, grass or even cement will help ground you. When moist or wet is best. If your basement or garage floor is unpainted cement, it will work. Our bodies need to be cleared of the positive ions we build up by connecting some part of our body with the earth, even our hands. Other factors that exacerbate this issue are the use of synthetic fibers, close proximity to electrical devices and wires, flying in airplanes and driving in cars. When you ground to the electron-enriched earth, it improves the balance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
Inspirational Media and Reading: We are highly affected by what we see, hear and read. We are literally programming and brainwashing ourselves and our children all the time through the media and internet. If you are interested in good health and reaching your highest potential, you’ll want to be careful with what you expose yourself and your children to. Experiment, see what happens when you choose to read, watch and listen to positive, uplifting, inspiring, life-enhancing media.
