How can we help you gain back your self-esteem
Self-esteem is unfortunately one of the first things that is lost in people experiencing stresses that alter mood. Even in a mild mood disorder, negative thought rumination plays a major role. Motivation is a major factor here as well. Disinterest or poor motivation and apathy are intimately part of a variety of mental health conditions.
Treat the Cause
The cause of these conditions can often be tracked back to biochemical changes that are caused by nutrient imbalances or environmental toxicity. The clinical protocol that we adhere is a classic orthomolecular assessment and treatment paradigm which aims to determine the problem and correct it. Our assessment determination is called targeted orthomolecular assessment as we employ specific lab tests to determine the biochemical imbalance specific to you the individual.
The primary imbalances are low thyroid, undermethylation, protein breakdown, and heavy metal toxicity.
Orthomolecular treatment avails the use of nutrients and dietary intervention. Please read our targeted treatment approach laid out in our clinic services web page.
Orthomolecular self-esteem is seen in patients that achieve a state of improved functioning which has so many benefits: improved productivity, increased physical vitality, getting along better with friends, family and society, and reduced dependence on psychiatric medication.
Ultimately we see clients that start to improve when they gain back lost energy and feel motivated to return to their previous higher level of functioning. “If you have energy you can’t be depressed.”
Gain some self-esteem by reading up on people who have had a good response to orthomolecular treatment.
The following lifestyle changes are helpful to improve your self-esteem:
1) Make plans to improve rather than focusing on negatives. Focus on your accomplishments, compliment your successes.
2) Do the opposite: if you sleep too much, wake earlier and vice versa; if you are too active, take time to ‘smell the roses’. Taking time to relax will clear your mind. Take some time for yourself.
3) Have a plan for the day to set the tone, even simple healthy routines are empowering — walking, experiencing nature or culture, meeting new friends, getting work out of the way early in the day, etc.
4) Set goals so you have something to strive for and look forward to.
5) Do something you are good at: sports, hobbies, music, gardening, playing games, cleaning, drawing, singing, etc.
