Are you feeling overwhelmed?

Are you 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? Do you feel like you catch every cold or virus that passes by?

Nutrition for stress relief

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, many people also deal with insurmountable grief over the loss of a loved one or pet, the emotional and physical demands of caring for an ailing family member, divorce, and unthinkable tragedies.

Stress can also be physical in the form of injuries, illnesses, inflammation, toxin exposure, and certain foods and eating habits.

Stress will make you sick by exacerbating your current symptoms or creating new ones. Thankfully, nutrition can help relieve mental and physical stress.

The following conditions can be related to stress:

  • Fatigue during the day, trouble waking in the morning, or lack of motivation
  • Feeling dizzy when you stand up from sitting or lying down
  • Hormonal imbalances and reproductive issues
  • Muscle loss or brittle bones
  • Low thyroid symptoms
  • Allergies
  • Susceptibility to frequent colds and infections, including respiratory and digestive problems
  • Insomnia or difficulty falling asleep
  • Memory loss, brain fog and cognitive issues
