Building resilience

Updated: Oct 26, 2023

What do we mean by resilience?

RESILIENCE is the ability to bounce back from the challenges of life - like a tree with deep roots, which bends in strong winds but doesn't break. Resilience can help us to thrive in the face of mental and physical challenges.

To cope with, or even prevent mental un-wellness, in addition to effective psycho-social care, we need to give the brain and the body the opportunity to heal itself. That means creating an environment to enable the thinking mind and physiological brain to become more resilient to stress (both physical and mental) and life's challenges.

An effective approach towards mental health and wellness would therefore focus on two aspects:

1) Resilience in the MIND

Psycho-social care - A good psychologist or psychiatrist should have the training and experience to help you get to the root of what is happening in the mind – to treat the situation and prevent future relapses.

2) Resilience in the BRAIN and BODY

Reducing the strain on the body's adaptive physiological systems, and opening windows of opportunity for the brain to repair, adapt and improve resiliency.

This is where nutritional therapy comes in. I can help you build resilience by nourishing the brain and body.
