Unveiling the Unseen: 5 Surprising Detriments To Your Mental Health

Even as our understanding of mental health and brain function advances through research, it’s remarkable how much insight we have gained into the complexities and interconnectedness of the human mind and body. Yet, despite these strides, a pressing question remains: Why do countless individuals find themselves grappling with the challenge of managing their declining mental health? Mental health awareness has made significant progress. Yet most people and experts agree that the state of mental health in young people and not-as-young people is not in a good place.

You don’t have to look far to find someone with anxiety or depression and personality disorders, complex trauma, schizophrenia, or suicidal ideation at its more extreme. Why do we continue to see mental health issue statistics rising in light of the research?

While this is a big question, with many angles and tangents, one of the major reasons is the compartmentalization that occurs within the professional world. A specialist only considers one small part of a complex individual’s concerns. It can be beneficial for healthcare professionals to have specialized knowledge in a specific area, it loses its efficacy if it sacrifices the totality of the person it is attempting to treat.

To treat the whole person many turn to holistic medicine for complete and lasting healing. Holistic medicine is defined as “an attitudinal approach to health care rather than a particular set of techniques. It addresses the psychological, familial, societal, ethical and spiritual as well as biological dimensions of health and illness,” by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). We have this attitudinal approach to thank for new insights into mental health and the discovery of 5 unexpected ways you may be affecting your mental health.

1. Vitamin Deficiency

A person cannot function at an optimal state if it isn’t given the resources to do so. We wouldn’t expect our houseplants to thrive if we never watered them. If we don’t give our bodies the vitamins it needs to fire on all cylinders, it may try its best for a period of time, but ultimately the deficiency will cause problems. For example, a Vitamin B12 deficiency has been linked to depression, psychosis, and irritability. If a person’s diet lacks the necessary vitamins and minerals, their mental health can be “starved”. If they also consume foods that are toxic or are dehydrated mental health issues may arise.

2. Presence of Parasites

Did you know parasites can cause depression? Studies have shown they also can cause anxiety, impulsivity, bipolar, schizophrenia, epilepsy, and autism. But how would this apply to you? You don’t eat sushi. You are fortunate to live in America and drink clean water. So parasites can’t be a problem, right? Wrong! Depending on the source, it is estimated between 60-80% of people currently have parasites! Scary, isn’t it? So, if we know that parasites can cause psychological symptoms, isn’t it short-sighted to prescribe counseling alone to rid people of the anxiety, depression, and other symptoms? To explain it briefly, parasites leech off of you, and suck out your precious, needed nutrients. They wreak havoc on your bodily systems. These microorganisms could causing mental health decline.

3. Failure To Treat The Whole Person

Another unexpected detriment to your mental health happens when a professional doesn’t treat the entire person. The truth is, human beings are complex creatures. We are composed of body, mind, spirit, and soul. If all four components are not addressed and taken into account, the healing offered is at best a short-term fix. Holistic Medicine strives to address all facets of each individual person. Natural Medicine and BioEnergetic Medicine protocols can be implemented that cover much more ground than one specialized field can cover.

4. Life Choices Affect Mental Health

Little choices over time begin to shape our lives. For some, the mental health challenge is rooted in personal life choices, relationships that are harmful, less than ideal living situations, or self-harming habits.

If someone begins a regimen to heal someone’s mental health without addressing any harmful life choices is like putting lipstick on a pig. It’s still a pig. And no amount of medication or outside stimuli will heal the problem if certain choices and relationships aren’t addressed.

5. Organ Degeneration

Another unseen issue for a person’s mental health is organ degeneration. For some it is an organ that is in degeneration that is not doing its job well enough to sustain the organism as a whole. If your car’s engine is broken, changing one of the tires won’t make it go. You must first address the significant engine failure. It is often that way with mental health. A complete understanding of an individual’s health is necessary. Don’t lose hope. There are solutions for these unseen issues affecting your mental health. For the majority of people, it’s a combination of multiple components. But a pathway forward is possible. Natural Medicine and BioEnergetic Medicine provide many different tools to assist the body to come into balance.
