Are you tossing and turning all night, waking up drained and anxious? Does the weight of daily life feel overwhelming, leaving you wondering how you’ll manage one more thing? For every visible task you accomplish, there are at least five invisible tasks you are responsible for that go unacknowledged. So many of us are approaching burnout, trying to keep all the parts of our daily lives moving. If any of this resonates with you, please know you are not alone.

At Colorado Natural Medicine & Acupuncture, we see countless patients struggling, and here’s what’s keeping them up at night:

  • Insomnia: You yearn for a deep, restful sleep, but your mind won’t shut down. You wake up exhausted, unable to face the day.
  • Anxiety: The constant feeling of worry and unease is relentless. You feel like you’re on edge, and even the smallest task feels overwhelming.
  • Exhaustion: When you are drained of energy, it can be hard to find the motivation to do anything, let alone be present for your loved ones.
  • Frustration with Traditional Medicine: You’ve tried medication, but the side effects are concerning, and you crave a more holistic solution.

We hear patients say they think they should be able to handle these struggles on their own. They feel weak or “needy” when they ask for help. Here’s the truth: the longer you wait, the more complex struggles become to manage. They can negatively impact every aspect of your life, including:

  • Relationships: Your anxiety and exhaustion can cause sudden bursts of emotion (crying, shouting, shutting down) that may strain your dynamics with family and friends.
  • Work Performance: Your inability to focus and low energy can affect your ability to perform daily tasks at your job and home. Feeling scattered and disorganized can further hinder your productivity and effectiveness.
  • Overall Well-Being: Your physical and mental health can become a constant battle, leaving you feeling isolated and desperate.

We offer a functional approach to mental health. Using integrative tools, we treat the root cause of your symptoms rather than just masking them with quick fixes like medications alone.

Let us help you find calm and a sense of mental peace. Here’s how our integrative approach is different from what you might have experienced before:

  • Functional Medicine: We look at your whole well-being, taking into consideration your diet, lifestyle, and underlying health conditions, to ensure your body is functioning at optimal levels.
  • Empowering You: We provide the tools and knowledge you need to take charge of your mental health and create lasting change.
  • Natural Solutions for Anxiety and Sleep: We offer a variety of natural options that support functional mental health. Here are just a few ways we can help you manage your anxiety and achieve restful restorative sleep:
  1. Functional Testing goes beyond the basic blood work you might receive from a Western medical doctor. We can look more deeply at the imbalances in your physical health that might contribute to lack of sleep and further exacerbate your symptoms.
  2. Acupuncture is known to rebalance the flow of energy and naturally heal the body. We have found it effective in treating anxiety and depression as well as other possible underlying causes that might lead to imbalances in mental health.
  3. Nutrition Therapy helps restore harmony in your gut microbiome. Scientifically, there is a direct correlation between gut and mental health. We use your specific biochemistry to create balance within your internal systems.
  4. Holistic Counseling integrates mind, body, and spiritual techniques to create a sense of wholeness from the inside out.
  5. Art Therapy uses non-verbal techniques to develop self-awareness, increase verbal and listening skills, better cope with stress, improve self-esteem, and gain social skills.
  6. Naturopathic Medicine uses low-risk procedures and natural substances – like dietary supplements, herbal medicine, and homeopathy – to complement all other treatment options.

Imagine waking up feeling refreshed and energized. Imagine easily coping with stress, feeling calm and connected to your loved ones. It’s not just a dream! This life is all within your reach.
