Mental Health has become a major epidemic, with 1 in 4 people having a mental health condition and 1 in 100 having a severe mental illness. The use of mental health medication has doubled in recent years, with over 60 million prescriptions issued for anti-depressants a year. More concerning is the increase in the use of anti - depressants in young children. With 1 in 8 children having an identified mental disorder and the rising rates of depression and self -harm in children and young people.
A more positive outlook in more recent years is that people are more willing to talk about it and that the use of mind and body approaches in mental health have increased. More holistic and natural ways to combat mental health problems are being used to change how we treat mental health with studies supporting the links between exercise, sleep, mindfulness and mental health. The time has come for an integrated approach that recognises the interplay of biological, psychological, social and environmental factors. There is a call for more alternative holistic and nutritional treatments.
The causes of mental health issues like anxiety and depression are often multifactorial and you may need to work on several areas of your life to improve your mental health. Making changes to what you eat, reducing stress and having more control of your life and health can all help. Mental health can play a big part in your overall health and your healing journey. Naturally Nice Nutrition can help you to look into the causation's of your mental discomfort and work with you to build new thought patterns, change beliefs and provide you with the confidence and motivation needed. If you can change your mind you can change your life.
A negative frame of mind does not just appear it can be built up from childhood and continue into adulthood being confirmed continuously by negative experiences. Self-esteem and self-worth are two major players in how we look at ourselves and how we create our life around us. We are in the driving seat of our lives and can make changes to how we think, creating new neuro-pathways that lead to new ways of thinking and new healthier behaviours. This at first can seem impossible as the brain and old negative thought patterns try to continue to hold on to the habit of negative self -talk. Change does not happen overnight, and you will need support and determination.
Naturally Nice will set up regular sessions and provide you with a toolbox of skills to help you retrain your brain to think healthier and happier thoughts. Negative self- talk can become out of control and a fear of failure can also raise its head but together we will keep moving forward creating new positive thoughts and belief systems. Through this process things may come up for you from the past that can help you to identify why you have behaved in certain ways that have hindered your path to happiness and health. At times this may feel uncomfortable and you may want to back out, but this is the brain chemistry that will try and convince you not to change. We will help you to keep going at the same time other areas will be assessed and worked on to bring you into a new positive phase in your life.
There are often deep-rooted reasons as to why you suffer mentally, and we will help you dig deep to identify what in your life is making you feel low in mood. You may have been diagnosed with depression or another mentally debilitating mental health label, this can often make you feel that there is no happy ever after for you. This is just habitual thinking patterns and can be worked on together to bring about a new way of thinking. There may also be other areas of your life that need change which can lead to changes in your mental health status. Often it is a puzzle that we need to find the missing pieces to and sometimes we need someone to help us find that missing piece.
