Antidepressants or Natural Solutions for Low Mood, Anxiety, Mental Health


My client told me this.... She was feeling Low with anxiety but didn't have mental-health issues.  She was post Menopausal. Her GP wrote a prescription, when she asked what it was for she was told "Antidepressants, we're giving these instead of HRT due to a shortage".

This is NOT acceptable!

Under the NICE guidelines (National Institute for Health & Care Excellence) - "Ensure that menopausal women and healthcare professionals involved in their care understand that there is no clear evidence for SSRIs or SNRIs to ease low mood in menopausal women who have not been diagnosed with depression"

There are so many natural ways to help your mood and your Hormone Balance especially during the Peri and Post Menopause years.

Often women don't link their moods, their anxiety or lack of confidence to their Hormones or Peri Menopause. Many women don't even understand how their hormones work on a normal 28 day cycle let alone during the Menopausal phase - why they're horny, energetic and confident on some days then moody, tearful, angry or short other days.

Plus the 40's and 50's for women (and men) is a time of reflection, to think about where your life is going, are you truly happy living your purpose or are you comfortable.. stuck in a job, relationship and a joyless existence.

It's not just Women . . . . Men too!

This happens to Men too, offered anti-depressants without diagnosis. Told to have time off work or provided with a Psychologist by their company.

I've treated a host of Men with anxiety and depression, some suicidal, and a few who have been provided the psychologist. Often for men it's the lack of having someone to talk to who they completely trust. They don't trust the employers Psychologist, afraid it will get back to their boss or partner. They can't talk to their Partner or Wife, sometimes that's the issue, they're unhappy, they had children and now they're stuck feeling they can't leave. Some are having affairs and just want to talk about it without being judged. Others have Work stress, anxiety over finances, some are grieving the loss of their Parents, dealing with the Estate....

Whilst anti-depressants have their place, they don't get to the underlying issue whether that's hormones, gut related or unhappiness.

Drop me a message if you can relate and would like natural solutions.
