Chronic, low-level stress is common in today’s society. Over time, stress exhausts your body, contributing to gland imbalances, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, cancer, immune suppression, colds/flu, anxiety/depression, digestive disorders, PMS, skin problems and fatigue.
Symptoms of stress include:
|Heart pounding||Sleep problems||Moodiness||Mental fogginess|
|Sweaty palms||Nausea||Forgetfulness||Negative self-talk|
|Skin rashes/acne||Tight stomach||Obsessive thought patterns||Diminished social interest/libido|
|Holding breath||Jaw grinding||Nervousness||Feelings of hopelessness|
|Cold hands||Muscle tension||Emotional instability||Restless mind|
To support healthy glands, your naturopathic doctor may recommend nutritional supplements such as vitamin C and B6, magnesium, pantothenic acid, and herbs like Siberian ginseng. Other treatments include acupuncture, hydrotherapy, IV therapy and nutritional and lifestyle counselling.
