Welcome to A Healthy State of Mind (AHSOM) Blog

In this blog, we will be regularly posting material to inform our readers about mental health issues and naturopathic approaches to treating mental illness. While our focus is mental health care, it has been our experience that a number of physical health conditions can cause, contribute to, or result from, mental health complaints. Thus you will see postings covering a range of physical and mental health topics along with information on naturopathic modalities. I hope that you find the blog informative. If you know of others who could benefit from it, please let them know.
