Dr. Christina Bjorndal joins Dr. Michelle Perison the podcast to shed light about how her early childhood trauma plunged her into a life of mental health problems such as eating disorders and a bipolar diagnosis and how it changed her career trajectory from a high paying, stressful corporate position to a fulfilling journey as a Doctor of Naturopathy. 

Michelle and Christina discuss Christina’s 10 pillars to healing and moving beyond the mental health label, 3 macro-systems that address the physical level of health, how we need to talk about diet, lifestyle, neurotransmitters,  and hormones with respect to stress and the risk to develop a mental health crisis.  

Christina is a naturopathic doctor and is considered an authority on the treatment of mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, and eating disorders using physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual approaches. Her book “Beyond The Label” is a comprehensive guide to naturopathic mental health.

Have you ever heard of IV Vitamin Therapy? This is one of the treatments that are offered at the Poppy Clinic, you can receive it as a stand-alone treatment or as part of your holistic health care. IV stands for Intravenous. It is a 40-minute session during which you are administered a customized blend of vitamins intravenously, right into your bloodstream. The advantage of getting your vitamins this way is that the digestive tract is bypassed in order for you to absorb 100% of what you are getting, you are receiving the vitamins directly, and are able to get much higher doses of the vitamins than you would ever be able to get otherwise.

Did you know that 1 of 3 people have a digestive compromise? This means that even if you are eating a great diet or taking all of your vitamins, you might not actually be digesting and absorbing everything. IV Vitamin Therapy is the treatment that helps you absorb 100% of vitamins into your system.

Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy:

- Boost your immune system

- Heal from chronic disease

- Fight off infections

- Boost your mood

- Improve sleep quality

- Calm your nervous system

- Health optimization

- Prevention of disease

- Anti-aging and collagen production boost
