Emotional Health is considered one of the three vital pillars of Naturopathy. Without emotional health can we really describe ourselves as healthy? Unresolved emotional stress from the past is like having background programs running on your computer; they take a lot of energy to keep running and interfere with your day to day functioning! Although you may be completely unaware you have them running in the background at all. Naturopaths believe that our natural state is one of health and peace, however unresolved emotional stress can act as an obstacle to this natural state of being. When we clear these unhelpful programs our natural state of emotional, physical and biochemical health can shine through. All Naturopaths take account of your emotional health, some practitioners specialise in this area, and may have additional skills in counselling or psychotherapy.
