Guiding You Towards Balance

In the fast-paced modern world, stress often finds its way into our lives, affecting us mentally, emotionally, and physically. For Dr. Rasha El Naggar and our providers at Etara Wellness, our journey towards stress recovery and mental well-being serves as a bridge between the wisdom of natural harmony and evidence-based care. Let’s explore the nuances of chronic stress and our approach to gently guiding you back to balance.

Understanding the Impact of Chronic Stress

In the midst of our bustling lives, chronic stress can quietly disrupt our sense of well-being. It can influence hormone balance and impact the structure of our brains. This disruption can give rise to various challenges, causing everyday stressors to feel overwhelming.

Chronic stress has far-reaching effects on the body. It’s associated with blood sugar fluctuations, a weakened immune system, unwanted weight gain, high blood pressure, and oxidative stress. This hidden contributor is often referred to as the “silent killer” due to its potential to contribute to chronic diseases and overall poor health. The impact of chronic stress can go unnoticed, leading to mental, emotional, and physiological struggles.

Revealing the Effects of Chronic Stress

Chronic stress can cast its shadow over various aspects of well-being. It can lead to decreased concentration, memory lapses, and mental fatigue. Sleep disruptions, intensified feelings of depression and anxiety, and even physical symptoms like muscle tension or back pain can result from chronic stress. Moreover, it can impact blood sugar regulation, increasing the risk of type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

The spectrum of potential outcomes is wide — from frequent headaches and migraines to imbalances in hormones and unwanted weight gain. Even issues such as addictions, gastrointestinal troubles, and accelerated aging can be linked to underlying stress. Conditions like anxiety, depression, ADHD, migraines, insomnia, PTSD, and IBS often have complex origins, intertwining with factors like diet, lifestyle, genetics, and past experiences.

Our Process

Dr. Rasha, a naturopathic doctor, employs a variety of treatments in her functional approach to naturopathic medicine for mental health in order to maximize mental health and raise the overall quality of life. Here is how the entire process works:

Step 1: Initial consultation and lab testing 

The estimated duration of the initial consultation is 60-80 minutes. During the initial appointment, patients discuss their health goals with Dr. Rasha. At the end of the initial consultation, we will order basic and functional lab tests and provide a treatment plan according to medical standards of care. The treatment plan includes diet and lifestyle modification, herbal medicine, homeopathy, supplements, and craniosacral sessions to provide comprehensive mental health care and support.

Step 3: Consecutive follow-up visits

We will manage the patient’s progress, modify the treatment plan, and address other conditions when needed. Our treatment plans also involve IV therapy for mental health support and craniosacral therapy sessions to promote mental health awareness.


Multi-Step Transformative Mental Health Program – How It Works

Individuals with mental and emotional disorders frequently take pharmaceuticals to change how their brains operate. The conventional way of treating mental disease has been utilizing drugs to affect the actions of neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin and dopamine. Unfortunately, even though some patients may respond well to medications, not all do.

Fortunately, as our knowledge of the brain’s complex functions has grown, we can now provide adjuvant treatments or alternatives to psychiatric medications when the former fails to deliver the results intended. For example, Micronutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, are the primary building blocks for many neurotransmitters. Therefore, micronutrient choices and dosage can be individualized to modify how neurotransmitters and the brain work.

Additionally, unbalanced microbiota, pollution, high toxin levels in the body, weakened detoxification systems, buried emotional trauma, and higher inflammation levels all contribute to the development mental and emotional illnesses.


The steps in our multi-step Transformative Mental Health Program are given below. The required actions are determined using a thorough history timeline, basic lab tests, and advanced functional lab tests. The outcomes of the initial comprehensive assessment are used to personalize the program and develop a care plan for a step-by-step intervention.

  1. Comprehensive evaluation and determining the root cause of the condition.
  2. Addressing neurotransmitter imbalance.
  3. Correcting micronutrient deficiencies using multiple modalities, including IV therapy.
  4. Optimizing hormonal imbalance.
  5. Addressing gut inflammation, microbiome, and leaky gut.
  6. Diminishing the body’s total toxic burden.
  7. Managing deep-seated stealth infections.
  8. Optimizing mitochondrial function and energy production.
  9. Detoxification of the Liver, adrenal, and kidney.
  10. Utilizing mind-body medicine such as in-office Craniosacral therapy sessions.


So, consult with Dr. Rasha. Based on knowledge, experience, and your condition, she will make unique tailored recommendations to optimize your mental health and provide the best mental health services.
