Anxiety and depression

 Anxiety and Depression

This is a topic that can affect you either directly or many other ways. You may have a friend, a close family member, and or you may be going through the toughest time in your life and are suffering from anxiety and depression. In my area of work I’m working with people of all ages, sizes, race, cultural back ground, any occupation, and I have made a conclusion that when illness or symptoms arise, anxiety and or depression has already set in and has rooted itself.

It is something I take seriously, I also have many friends and family members that suffer from depression. Something must be really missing with society in terms of our emotions, self esteem, self image, and spiritual aspects that lead to fear and cause us anxiety. I’m very interested in the data from recent studies and the increasing numbers worldwide, and more so to understand individuals that have been down this path and have over come this disease.


If you’ve fortunate enough not to know what anxiety or depression is, here’s some brief description. Anxiety attack can be described as intensely frightening and demoralizing. You may believe that you will need to end up in the hospital and or feel like your going to die, you have no sense of control, you may feel like your going crazy, you may of had only one panic attack or several of them. According to Dr. Reid Wilson panic attacks and anxiety disorders is accompanied by fear, which proceed by your thoughts. Depression comes from emotional turbulence and build up of emotional toxicity, like stress, anger, guilt, resentment, which starts to become your identity and can lead to chronic illness and additions.

New study by researchers at Australia’s University of Queensland, suffers world’s highest depression rates in the Middle East and North Africa. This determines the social and public health burden of the disorder of the world, it is the second-leading cause of disability using preexisting data.

What about North America? In fact in North America more individuals are suffering from mental disorders, especially in the United States. There are mood disorders like, anxiety, attention deficit/hyperactivity, and substance abuse. The average American has 47.4 percent chance of having any kind of mental health disorder over one’s entire lifetime, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Depression is becoming a huge concern, the World Health Organization ranks depression as one of the most disabling disease, estimating from population studies shown approximately twenty percent of people will experience clinical depression during the course of their lifetime. Afflicting approximately 121 million people worldwide.


Eckhart Tolle, is German-born resident of Canada who wrote a number of books on spirituality including The Power of Now and A New Earth.  He is someone who’s endured anxiety and depression for much of his life and was in deep thoughts of ending his own life until age 29. He underwent an “inner transformation” that changed his life completely, as he explains in detail in his books about his transformation, he is a spiritual teacher and a public speaker. His books and teaching practices quieting the mind and changing the past negative pattern of your thoughts, he elaborates about self talk and the ego. He is an advocate for many people who are suffering, and inspires individuals who have hit rock bottom by giving them hope and ways ease in their mind.

Weather you want to stop suffering from the clutter in your mind, be a better athlete, slow down your chronic pain/fatigue, improving your your quality of life, lose weight, or just simply want to get up in the morning and feel happy just because you deserve it.

Cutting the weed off the surface will not stop the weeds from growing, understanding there are endless possibilities, support, patience and natural solutions to getting to the ROOT CAUSE will start the changing process to improvements. Make the change NOW!


The healing starts from you, I look forward to hearing from you you’re not alone.

Frightening diagnosis

The Diagnosis

Waiting for the appointment date with the doctor was never so nerve racking until now. Every thought, every moment were thoughts of my life and everything I have to do, what’s going to happen to me, options for treatment aren’t pleasant or maybe there won’t be many options. Why me?  I was so scared and my mind was going crazy with so many thoughts, my mind was racing constantly.  As my doctor spoke and then I heard the result that I didn’t want to hear, all I heard after that was muffled buzzing sounds, walls spinning like in the movies and just saw her mouth moving. I felt my energy leave my body and I was in disbelief this was happening.

Whether your symptoms manifest physically by creeping up slowly over the years or like a lightning bolt on a sunny day.  Fear will try to become your best friend, as normal as it may seems accepting the friendship will not help you gain sight to what your course of action and options is to heal and improve your state of health and balance again.

Stop for a moment and think, really catch your self for a moment of what your thoughts are, if it is true that your biography becomes your biology, would you want that thought to come true? If the thoughts are hurt, revenge, anger, guilt, resentment, blame, pity and FEAR. How do you think this is going to help your body’s recover?

Changing your life long thought patterns is not easy, acknowledging them is the first step and may be the root cause of issues and illness. What do thoughts have any thing to do with my diagnosis? Everything, and practicing your mind and attitude at this stage is a good time to change and work with a health practitioner with knowledge and experience that can coach you and direct your new patterns of thoughts that shape your mind, body back into balance and wellness. Do it for the most important person, you!

How does this sound to you?

“There is no reason for me to struggle in any of this, I can beat this, I’m not going to let this get the better of me, I’m not ready yet, I will triumph over this.” When you feel relief, you have lessened you resistance, when this happens physical manifestations will no longer matter. The art of allowing and enjoying the moment as though well being has already happened and you have detached from fear and focus off the diagnosis. Fear and doubt will try to be friends with you time and time again but you always have total control over your thoughts and how it makes you feel. Changes in recovery will not happen over night, practicing how you are feeling, slight improvements, taking it day by day, patience of the transition period. Obvious evidence in your physical body of improvements stems from your thoughts that improved emotions, and the will to prioritize nutrition to feed your cells, life style and your life will change in a different direction.


Facts and reason why you should feel hopeful that your body changes and can heal, so can you.

What is energy? (Chi, Prana, Orgone, etc.)

It gives us strength and vitality required for sustained physical, mental activity and life. It’s excitement, vitality, spirit, zest, vibrancy, spark, liveliness, enthusiasm, exuberant, buoyancy, animation and much more.

                                                                                                                                                                                  “Energy that flows through every living being and is absolutely essential to life itself. Delight and happy feelings are bound up with the increased and unimpeded flow of energy, while energy vacuity and congestion lead to pain and feeling of emptiness, rigidity and depression. ” Dr.Reimar Bansis

When energy is lost, fatigue is one of the first signs our amazing body gives us when it’s not at it’s optimal function.    Something we don’t pay attention, since we have easy excess to stimulants high in caffeine like and it’s just routine, we grab energy drinks, chocolate, and our all time favorite “coffee!” This can also contribute to eating fast foods, processed foods, and foods high in sugar that deplete our precious energy from our body due to the body’s focus on digesting these foods and therefore leaving you powerless. Over consumption of stimulants and foods that rob your energy, then makes it challenging for the body to relax to fall asleep and interrupted sleep becomes an issue especially over time.

Our bodies were made to function best at its optimal level with energy through out the day and good quality sleep for the body’s ability to heal and repair, deprivation of sleep makes this impossible which can lead to insomnia, chronic stress, weight gain, depression, impaired cognitive function, and many other issues with the body.

Why am I losing my power? Something else you can think about and how important it is to practice developing habits of positive thoughts and that your biography becomes your biology.

To recover and heal your energy imbalance it always involves your will, and trust that changes need to be implemented in order for improvements to occur. Change your thoughts, mind, your environment, your clothes, change is good, change is life and what nature intended!

The first way to feeling energetic again is to start with what you do every day…EAT! Why not eat REAL and RIGHT foods that give you energy and power.

Power house to your cells, the mighty mitochondria-ATP-energy.

  • Increase deeply coloured vegetables and fruits .
  • Increase cabbage, onion, mushroom family.
  • Increase dark leafy greens.
  • Ensure adequate complete protein.
  • Drink plenty of filtered pure water.
  • Good quality sleep.


Life can be simple just like the real foods we can choose to eat, energy can once again flow freely when you can get your power from your food.
