Modern science recognizes that the gut is an anchor for emotional and mental health

We help creative people – especially women, transform anxiety, depression and trauma, so they can make empowering changes and live a life of purpose. The starting point for this transformation is healing the gut.

So, what on earth does the gut have to do with mental and emotional issues or finding purpose? Well, Modern evidence-based science recognizes that the gut is an anchor stone not just for physical health, but also for emotional and mental issues. This is because there is a direct link between the gut microbiome (the universe of billions of healthy and unhealthy microorganisms living in your gut) and the brain. This is known as the gut-brain connection. An unhealthy gut can easily cause feelings of anxiety and depression or mental fog.

Your gut is also the place where more than 90% of the neurotransmitter Serotonin is manufactured. And Serotonin is responsible for regulating mood and social behavior, appetite and digestion, sleep, memory, and sexual desire and function. So, healing gut dysfunction can bring powerful changes in mood and mental clarity, as well as dealing with physical problems like skin rashes and premature aging.

Our patients find that that healing the gut is a big milestone in being able to think clearly, feel more resilient and able to cope with life’s challenges, and open to the creativity and purpose that makes life fun!

How can Alchemy Radiant Health help me?

Now maybe you’re wondering, what’s different about Alchemy Radiant Health compared with other practitioners you’ve worked with in the past? Well, the system of medicine practiced by most physicians is based on acute care – the treatment of trauma or illness that needs urgent care. That might be something like appendicitis or a heart attack, or a broken limb. Acute care is very important, but it lacks the proper methodology and tools for preventing and treating complex, multifactorial conditions like Autoimmunity or Diabetes or Anxiety. Acute care is simply not designed to treat these problems effectively. This is where functional medicine and Chinese medicine really shine!

At Alchemy radiant health, our approach treats you and your body as a whole functioning ecosystem, with multiple systems combining physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual layers.  The solution to your condition is much more complex than relieving symptoms – so we get to the root of your health challenge by combining the very latest science from Functional Medicine with the ageless wisdom of Chinese Medicine.

Our Functional lab tests are the perfect starting point for diagnosing gut-health challenges, providing a complete picture of your gut microbiome. And once diagnosed, we treat you with botanicals, acupuncture, supplements, diet, and Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM). This delivers great results – without drugs or their unpleasant side-effects.

Our patients really enjoy the process of getting well!
