Feeling Stressed Out?

 

LAWC Product Selection of the Month!!

The Basics

The Basics are those products that help provide a solid nutritional foundation for everyone.  Over the years, in our experience, almost everyone needs some help getting to nutritional sufficiency.

 Whole Food Multi-Vitamin

Getting your nutrients through food has been shown to be the most effective way of meeting those daily needs. Whole food multivitamins can help to support a healthy diet. They’re derived naturally from whole food sources, and can help meet your body’s nutritional needs.

 Omega 3 Fatty Acids

 The human body can make most of the types of fats it needs from other fats or raw materials. This isn’t the case for omega-3 fatty acids. These are essential fats – the body can’t make them from scratch but must get them from food.

HealthTip  of the Week

Before we continue…

We’ve covered 7 cervical and 5 thoracic spinal levels and the resultant organic dis-function possibilities from subluxations at these levels BUT…Have you considered what causes these subluxations?  All subluxations result from the body experiencing more stress than it can handle.  Chiropractic increases your ability to handle the stress you are under!

Chronic Stress And Your Health

While it is common knowledge these days that stress, when chronic, is a precursor to many common health issues and problems.

First, it is important to realize that stress could and should be looked at from two different perspectives:

  1. How to widen one’s range of adaptability to the stress in one’s life.
  2. How to reduce the amount of stress one is experiencing.

First and foremost, the easiest and most effective way to widen one’s range of adaptability to stress is to make sure the nerve system is as free of stress and interference as is possible…this is where chiropractic shines.

Next, we can try to reduce stress because when we are under stress, the body pumps out the hormones of adrenaline, nor-adrenaline and cortisol.

So, beyond obvious lifestyle changes to minimize stress such as yoga, t’ai chi, meditation, prayer, massage and breathing exercises; there are several nutritional supplements that may help properly align the hormonal system:

  1. Vitamin D – Stress depletes this vitamin significantly. It helps maintains proper blood pressure and is an antioxidant.
  2. Vitamin B Complex – Calms the Nerve System and provides energy.
  3. Inositol – Helps decrease insulin resistance while soothing depression, mood swings and anxiety.

The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…

Both approaches to dealing with stress work and it just makes sense that they would.  Common sense would tell us that reducing the stress a person experiences would be good.  And, anything that would increase your ability to adapt to stress would also be good.  What we have found in the office is that doing BOTH gets GREAT results.  Imagine reducing the stress you are experiencing + increasing your ability to constructively adapt to stress = better health!
