Whole Patient Care

In 2022 nearly 2.2 million Australians were diagnosed with anxiety, depression or worse – both. After a long few years the feelings of depression, isolation, and apathy have become an alarmingly normal occurrence in our everyday lives.

And we think it’s time to shed a new light onto the darkness of depression.

At Ananda Clinics, we want 2023 to be the year that we help more patients than ever before find their spark again. The Ananda Way focuses on whole-patient care, creating personalised treatment plans that rely on support, education, and precise medicine to find long-term, long-lasting results.

By treating the body’s own Endocannabinoid System (ECS), we help patients to truly rediscover their spark again – safely, naturally, and without the side effect profile of many commonly prescribed medications.

The Endocannabinoid System

Patients with mild, chronic, or major depressive orders may find little relief from conventional pharmaceuticals facing insomnia, flatness, and other ongoing side-effects.

With the body’s own Endocannabinoid System (ECS), known as the master regulator, playing a crucial role in the optimal function of the neurotransmission, neuroendocrine, and inflammatory processes in the body, imbalances wreak havoc on things like mood, sleep, and pain.

The endocannabinoid system is involved in eliciting potent effects on neurotransmission, neuroendocrine, and inflammatory processes, which are known to be associated with depression and chronic pain, leading to symptoms like:

  • Sadness, apathy, and feelings of emptiness
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • General fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Lack of focus
  • Pain


Ananda Clinics’ treatment plans target the ECS to help relieve some symptoms associated with chronic illness.
