Stress Reduction

Congratulations on your decision to take positive steps towards managing the stress in your life.

 

With the support of Natural Health and Nutrition you will be able to develop strategies to help you feel calmer, more positive and more in control of your situation.
Stress affects everyone differently. What might be stressful for one person may not be for another, and everybody reacts to stress in different ways. As a qualified healthcare practitioner, I understand these differences and can identify and provide treatment for your specific needs in order to reduce the impact of stress in your life.
Managing stress is all about taking charge: taking charge of your thoughts, your emotions, your schedule, your environment, and the way you deal with problems. The ultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for work, exercise, relationships, relaxation, and fun – plus the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on.

 

What drives stress?

Stress acts to motivate and sharpen your focus in situations where immediate action is required. The intensity or urgency of the situation determines the intensity of that stress response.
To deal with chronic stress your body releases cortisol – a chemical that allows you to stay in an active, attentive state for long periods of time to deal with the stress at hand. Chronic stress strongly affects every system in your body and long-term or poorly managed stress can have serious health consequences.
If left untreated, chronic stress can cause symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, sleep disturbances, irritability, poor memory and reduced concentration. Stress can also be a contributing factor in cardiovascular disease and hormonal imbalances, and conditions such as peptic ulcers, depression, headaches/migraines, dermatitis, asthma, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other digestive disorders.
Therefore, we need to manage stress and our response to stressful situations to ensure balance and health in our lives.

 

The Stress Reduction Program will help:

  1. Address your symptoms of stress.
  2. Provide you with key nutrients required during periods of stress and recovery.
  3. Provide neurotransmitter support to assist healthy mood, memory and brain function.
  4. Provide healthy eating tips to support stress.
  5. Develop stress management techniques.
You may not be able to escape the stresses of modern-day life, but you can better manage and respond to the stress you do experience with the support of tailored dietary and lifestyle changes and key natural medicines. The Stress Reduction Program will allow you to face life head-on with more energy and resiliency.
