Addressing Mental Health at the Roots with Christina Bjorndal

Mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and eating disorders impact people all around us. Whether it’s you that is struggling or someone you know, today’s podcast is about addressing the root cause of mental health issues.

My guest is Dr. Christina Bjorndal. She completed her Doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2005. She is one of the only licensed NDs in Canada who is considered an authority in the treatment of mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, eating disorders and ADD/ADHD.

Dr. Chris has helped many patients navigate through labels and stigma towards mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. Having overcome her own challenges in the area of mental health, Dr. Chris helps show others how to overcome barriers in life and to achieve their full potential.She has completed three books on mental health as well as a 10 week course and in-person retreat.

In this interview we talk about identifying the root causes behind mental health challenges and how to address them. We also discuss when medications may or may not be necessary and specific nutrients and dietary changes that will help, whether you’re on medications or not. We even talk about how skin is connected and can be an early warning sign of root causes that need to be addressed.
