    Review of Study: Naturopathic Medicine for Anxiety and Depression

    May 2017: Dr. Peter reviews an observational study, which corroborates two other past studies which suggests efficacy for naturopathic support with anxiety and depression.

    Overall, this study sends a signal to the clinical world of psychiatry to look beyond neurotransmitters and embrace a naturopathic and holistic approach.

    This study did not merely look at a single monotherapy (eg, St. John’s wort). Instead it involved a naturopathic-based paradigm, an important and welcome seminal step towards clinical acceptance of a systems-based and more functional approach to management of anxiety and depression.

    Telomere Length and Depression

    Telomeres are basically little caps at the end of your genetic material – sort of like the little covers (called aglets) on your sneaker laces. When the aglet breaks, your shoe string will fray into broken strands. Similarly, when a telomere breaks, your genetic material can start to fray and be subject to getting damaged, which can lead to mental conditions like depression and anxiety....

    Simple Steps for Back-To-School Preparation: Routine

    August 20, 2014

    Anne Williams, ND, LAc


    Studies show that one of the best ways to support your children's academic performance and personal growth is with reliable structure. Especially by providing a consistent bedtime and mealtime. Poor grades in school and depression are strongly correlated with irregular patterns.

    Children respond well to a routine that they can depend on in the face of the many changing factors in their school environment. All change results in stress on the body and the home environment is one place that can provide a sense of rest and repose. Restorative home time allows kids to have the energy to be more flexible in other situations.

    Though complaints are frequent with bed and mealtime routines, remember that hindsight is usually 20/20 and your kids will most likely thank you, even if that thanks only comes years from now.

    An added bonus for mom comes with bedtime routine. It appears that not only children benefit through improved sleep quality but mom’s mood improves as well.
