Are you feeling overwhelmed?
Waking up at night worrying about your next day? Relying on caffeine and sugar to make it through the day because you’re too tired to think or function? Feel like you catch every cold or virus that passes by?
Stress comes in many forms. Endless to-do lists, financial worries, family demands, and constant multi-tasking are common American habits that add up to mental stress. Unfortunately some also deal with insurmountable grief over the loss of a loved one or pet, the emotional and physical demands of caretaking an ailing family member, divorce, and unthinkable tragedies.
Stress can be physical in the form of injuries, illnesses, inflammation, toxin exposure, and certain foods and eating habits.
