Are you Experiencing Other Stress Symptoms?
The symptoms of excessive stress are wide ranging. You may not even link your symptoms to stress:
- Digestive issues
- Weight gain and belly fat
- Frequent illness
- High blood pressure
- Brain Fog
- Difficult periods or menopause
- Low libido
- Pain and inflammation
- … the list goes on!
If some of these ring true, then you are probably experiencing excessive stress. Stress can be useful to motivate us, however, high levels of stress long term can feel unpleasant and is detrimental to our health.
Stress can be difficult to regulate- I get it! I was a big stress head. I have now found ways to balance my stress and support my body. I found my peace with food, natural supplements and lifestyle techniques.
I am passionate about helping my clients to find their peace, so they can live life with a feeling of balance, calm and focus.
Naturopathy works beautifully to reduce your body’s stress response. Herbs and nutrients work to reduce symptoms in the short term. In the long term, nutrition and lifestyle techniques help you manage stress and become more resilient.
Good nutrition is required to module the stress response within your body.
Supplementation with specific nutrients is proven to reduce the stress response, and a deficiency in some nutrients can make your stress response much stronger. Genetic predispositions can also make you more of a ‘stress head’ and nutritional supplementation works well to keep stress at bay.
I cannot speak more highly of the power of herbal medicine to module stress. I have used herbs time and time again to help myself and my clients in times of stress.
I work with you to find lifestyle practices that fit with your life and reduce stress. This includes breathing exercises, mindful meditation, art therapy, yoga and exercise.
