10 Year Old with Anxiety

  My 10 year old daughter has a history of anxiety that started when she was very young. What started as "separation anxiety" as a toddler became more severe as she got older. She was anxious around large groups of people, strangers, and did not like to be away from home. She cried most days during school for 5 years. She struggled in school, as her anxiety left her unable to ask for help when needed or to complete difficult work on time. At home she was unmotivated to participate in family activities, and preferred to be alone.

 

My husband and I tried everything to help our child. We met with her teachers and principal, we took her to counseling, tried relaxation techniques, and took her to a psychiatrist who prescribed anti anxiety medication. We even moved her to a private school which provided a smaller class size. Nothing we tried made much of a difference. 

We took her to see Dr. Nelson who began treating her for anxiety. Within 2 days of taking her supplements she has been like a completely different child. She is talking more, interacting with the family, and having fun! She is getting her homework done on time, has chosen to participate in a school art contest, and is looking forward to an overnight class trip in the spring. It's so nice to see our daughter laughing, smiling, and enjoying her life. She notices a difference too and has told us that she's glad she's feeling better.

 

During her initial visit, Dr. Nelson spent the time to create an appropriate plan of treatment. She and her assistant went over the plan with my daughter, and showed her how and when to take her supplements. My daughter fondly refers to Dr. Nelson as the "nice doctor" and we are so thankful for her care and her expertise. I would definitely recommend Abundant Life Wellness to anyone. I am so thankful for the thoughtfulness that Dr. Nelson and her staff has shown. *
