We are living in some very stressful times to say the least. With the Internet at the tip of our fingers all the bad things in the world are just a click away. We are constantly bombarded with the news which just stresses us out more which in turn causes sleep issues which makes us more stressed and it turns into a vicious cycle. So what is one to do?
Well here are some tips one can use to reduce stress and get your health back where it belongs
- Reducing your time on the Internet including social media will help immensely. Here is a video series on reducing smartphone use.
- Stress increases histamine in the brain which can cause anxiety, depression, insomnia and panic attacks. A great book on histamine is “Nutrient Power” by William Walsh. Visit our Mental Health page for more information.
- Pyrrole Disorder is a chemical imbalance involving an abnormality in hemoglobin synthesis and metabolism. Sufferers of this condition produce too much of a byproduct called hydroxyhemopyrrolin-2-one (HPL). The HPL binds to zinc, B6 and magnesium preventing their absorption by the body and causing excretion in the urine, eventually the condition manifests as a serious deficiency which causes the individual to not handle stress well at all. You can test for it here
- Exercise. Just going for daily walks WITHOUT your cellphone can help you unwind from daily stresses. Try it once and see
- Listen to Alpha Wave brainwave entrainment before bed. Alpha waves calms the mind.
- Check your hormone levels. Your hormones decline with age and keeping them at optimal levels help greatly to overall health.
- Drink more water. At least 4 glasses a day. We are around 60% water so keeping hydrated is extremely important.
