    I t i s perfect ly normal for a l l human beings to exper ience anxiety and

    phobias at var ious t imes in their l i fe . A certa in amount of anxiety and

    phobias is heal thy and performs a va luable funct ion; enabl ing us to develop

    l i fe sk i l l s and learn how to stay safe , grow and bui ld res i l ience in l i fe . How

    we manage and ‘grow’ f rom anxiety is dependent upon our abi l i ty to

    ‘ recover ’ f rom what we perceive as a threat , chal lenge, loss , cr is is , change

    or fear in our l i fe . Our abi l i ty to manage and cope with anxious s i tuat ions

    is developed and ‘hot-wired ’ in the centra l nervous system, and is

    inf luenced by our ear ly chi ldhood exper ience and development .

    How we manage anxiety and phobias is predominant ly modeled (and learnt )

    through our pr imary care g ivers (most commonly our parents) . I f anxiety is

    not managed in a ‘good enough’ way or coping with anxiety is exper ienced

    in a harmful or damaging way, i t leaves us enter ing the wor ld with a

    d istorted vers ion of l i fe and we are lef t wi th inadequate emot ional and l i fe

    sk i l ls which are needed to be able to overcome l i fe ’s problems. I f we do not

    learn heal thy l i fe sk i l l s and learn how to ‘be comfortable wi th ’ and manage

    anxiety in a heal thy way, then eventual ly the anxiety compromises our

    immune system’s abi l i ty to funct ion, leav ing us vulnerable to i l lness and

    exhaust ion. As we encounter more anxiety we may exper ience bouts of

    depress ion, anger , and panic .

    Modern-day stress and anxiety are ref lect ive of the modern wor ld we l ive

    in and often are re lated to us not feel ing ‘good enough’ or not feel ing

    successful , fee l ing ‘a fa i lure ’ , a lways feel ing unsat is f ied, unable to mainta in

    re lat ionships. We str ive for perfect ion and the anxiety ‘merry go round’

    cont inues. Due to the uncomfortable feel ings associated with h igh levels of

    anxiety , we develop our own strategies and behaviour patterns to deal wi th

    (deny or numb out ) these feel ings , for example; se l f -medicat ing to dul l

    emot ional pain , dr ink ing a lcohol to re lax or shut out feel ing anxiety ,

    work ing excess ive ly to d istract f rom the pressures and anxiet ies of l i fe ,

    over or under eat ing for comfort or to f i l l the fr ightening feel ing of anxiety .

    A l l these maladapt ive behaviors are ef forts to feel in control or d iscard

    uncomfortable feel ings. Anxiety re lated i l lness k i l l more people on the

    planet than any other condit ion. I t is l inked to cancer , heart d isease,

    depress ion and addict ion. Anxiety can a lso resul t in h igh suic ide rates –

    especia l ly among men.

    At THE BALANCE we of fer c l ients a hol ist ic approach to phys ica l and mental

    heal th care. The term ́hol ist ic ́ means that our program incorporates a l l

    aspects of a person l i fe and recognizes that each part of us is int imately

    interconnected to a ́whole ́ so in terms of heal th care , i t recognizes that a l l

    areas of a person ’s l i fe need attent ion, in order to impact on the indiv idual .

    This incorporates our model of Mind, Body and L i fe .

    Hol ist ic medic ine (a lso known as phys io logica l regulat ing medic ine and

    Bio logica l Medic ine) treats the whole person. The pat ient ’s symptoms are

    a lways considered to be the outward express ion of an under ly ing

    dysfunct ion that can be remedied by st imulat ing the body ’s own regulatory

    forces. We search for the root causes of the pat ient ’s d isease in order to

    g ive the body a chance to heal i tse l f . This is why we g ive top pr ior i ty to

    improving the pat ient ’s general metabol ism, together wi th detoxi f icat ion,

    pur i f icat ion and the latest methods of immune - st imulat ion, as wel l as

    other st imulat ing therapies .

    THE BALANCE bio logica l medic ine a ims at strengthening the whole , so that

    d iseases and suscept ib i l i ty to d isease can be overcome by the pat ient ’s own

    immune system and heal ing process. For th is reason, our doctors ut i l i ze

    'suppress ive ' medic ines only dur ing t imes of emergency , and not for

    chronic care management , because th is type of medic ine is most ef fect ive

    in acute s i tuat ions. We are a lso s lower to recommend certa in operat ions ,

    preferr ing f i rst to apply our hol ist ic therapy concept .

    As our pat ient , you are making a commitment to your heal th . With your

    cooperat ion and the THE BALANCE staf f ’ s input of exper ience and know

    how, suscept ib i l i t ies can be detected, and the course of the disease

    reversed. I t i s important to note that our doctors have convent ional medical

    degrees and specia l ized tra in ing in Bio logica l Medic ine, and in certa in

    cases , convent ional and hol ist ic treatments wi l l be integrated.

    Adrenal fat igue is a col lect ion of s igns and symptoms, known as a syndrome,

    that resul ts when the adrenal g lands funct ion below the necessary level .

    infect ions such as inf luenza, bronchit is or pneumonia. . . you l ive wi th a

    general sense of un-wel lness , t i redness or “grey” feel ings . People

    exper iencing adrenal fat igue often have to use cof fee, colas and other

    st imulants to get going in the morning and to prop themselves up dur ing

    the day.

    “The adrenal g lands respond to a l l types of stress in the same way. . . I t i s

    important to know that a l l s tresses are addit ive and cumulat ive . The

    number of stresses , whether or not you recognize them as stresses , the

    intensi ty of each stress , and the frequency with which i t occurs p lus the

    length of t ime i t is present , a l l combine to form your tota l stress load. ”
