Counseling and Coaching in Appleton, WI
Tina Wankey, LCSW, MSW, MSHN
We all struggle at some point in our life with such things as anxiety, depression, life changes, trauma, PTSD, relationship issues, marriage/couples issues, and the list could go on. These issues can be debilitating just like a physical health issue. In many of these situations, there is something that is not firing correctly in the brain that is leading to an imbalance in neurotransmitters. This impacts our moods leading to such symptoms as depression, anxiety, anger, frustration, irritability, worry, sadness, etc. This truly is no different than having a physical health issue as something is out of balance in the body and leads to health issues as diabetes, hypothyroidism, arthritis, pain, fibromyalgia, lupus, allergies, etc. Ultimately people over think mental health issues instead of looking at the biological function behind it. For me, struggles in the mental health arena are no different than a physical health issue. In this same breathe, that is why I work at getting to the root of what is really going on in the body and work to help rebalance the imbalance.
Why treat mental health any different than you would physical health when all of these issues are an imbalance in the body that is creating flare ups? There shouldn’t be a difference as to whether the flare up is inflammation leading to arthritis or inflammation that is leading to depression, anxiety, anger, sadness. The real concern should be in getting the body rebalanced so the depression, sadness, anxiety, worry, anger, irritability, lack of focus and concentration are alleviated. We can help with this at Roots of Healing. This is where my true passion lies. Getting to the ROOT OF THE ISSUE.
