Chronic stress can lead to many diseases some with very serious consequences such as depression, addiction, anger, insomnia, and other stress related disorders such as allergies, irritable bowel, ulcers, arthritis, anxiety, acne, eczema, heartburn, infertility, impotence, migraine, neck and back pain, night terrors, and psoriasis, to name a few.
Stress can be good for us, but sustained and chronic stress can ruin our health. Dr Bhatti in his new Holistic Health and Stress Clinic uses a new approach to break the cycle of chronic stress on the body and help prevent and regain and recover from the consequences of stress. Restoration of gut health, nutrition, use of herbals in gut healing, targeted mindfulness, needle free acupuncture, and other natural therapies are on offer. Gut health restoration is the hallmark of the holistic health clinic. Old and new research has confirmed the link between the gut flora and mental and physical illness such as addiction, allergies, blood pressure, back and neck pain, constipation, depression, diarrhoea, diabetes, frequent colds and flu, fungal infections such as candida, heart disease, irritable bowel, immunity, infertility, impotence, liver disease, migraines, respiratory infections, rheumatism, inflammation, skin problems, weight reduction and many others.
According to a paper in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association more than 70 per cent of visits to primary care doctors are for stress related medical issues. Many of those treated for stress have money issues at the root of it and most commonly these patients complain of headaches, high blood pressure, ulcers, depression, and moderate to severe anxiety.
