Anxiety in Teens and Adolescents
Anxiety is a common experience during adolescence. It can manifest as excessive worry, fear, or unease about various aspects of life, such as school, social relationships, or the future.
Symptoms: Signs of anxiety in teenagers may include restlessness, muscle tension, rapid heartbeat, difficulty sleeping, and avoidance of certain situations.
Support: Holistic help for anxious teens can include herbal medicines to calm the stress response, amino acid therapy, nutritional supplementation to support the production of calm hormones, and gut-brain connection support.
Depression in Teens and Adolescents
Recognising Depression: Depression is a serious mood disorder that can affect teenagers, leading to persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest in activities they once enjoyed.
Symptoms of teenage depression: Symptoms of depression may include changes in sleep patterns, appetite, energy levels, concentration difficulties, and thoughts of self harm or suicide.
Support: We offer natural support alongside medical care for teenage depression. Treatment may include herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, identifying and addressing nutritional deficiencies, and gut-brain connection support. Our goal is to help teenagers regain their emotional wellbeing and build resilience.
Academic Challenges: Difficulty concentrating in school can hinder academic success and contribute to stress. We provide academic support services tailored to the unique needs of each teenager, including natural options for supporting concentration and memory, study skills development, and guidance on time management.
Support: We work closely with teenagers and their families to identify the underlying causes of concentration difficulties and develop strategies to improve focus and academic performance.
Importance of Sleep: Healthy sleep patterns are essential for physical and emotional wellbeing. Sleep disturbances, such as insomnia or irregular sleep schedules, can impact a teenager’s mental health.
Support: We offer herbal medicines to promote better sleep alongside guidance on sleep hygiene and relaxation techniques. We also address underlying issues that may contribute to sleep disturbances such as changes to the circadian rhythm, nutritional deficiencies, and stress.
Teenager Mood Swings
Behavioral Challenges: Adolescents may exhibit behavioral issues that can affect their relationships and overall wellbeing. These behaviours may include defiance, aggression, or withdrawal.
Support: Our aim is to work with teenagers and their families to understand the underlying causes of behavioural issues and develop effective strategies for managing and improving behaviour.
Support for Academic Success
Academic Support: We recognise the importance of academic success in a teenager’s life. Academic achievements play a vital role in shaping a teenager’s future, self esteem, and overall wellbeing. Our goal is to empower teenagers with the skills and resources they need to excel academically and prepare for a successful future.
Support: Treatment options may include supplements to support cognition, guidance on lifestyle balance, stress management, sleep hygiene, and nutrition for brain health.
