It is important to first consider lifestyle factors, like taking time to relax, getting proper nutrition, doing gentle exercise, and ensuring plenty of sleep when working on decreasing stress and anxiety. However, supplements can help bring a greater state of calm while you heal the root cause of this issue. Your practitioner can evaluate the unique factors at play for you and provide advice on an ideal supplement protocol. In the meantime, you can learn more about the nutrients and herbs that prove to be particularly beneficial in helping the body recover from stress.
Hormone fluctuations during certain stages of life can often result in symptoms such as acne on the chin and jawline, irregular cycles, heavy or painful periods, mood swings, foggy thinking, hot flashes, anxiety and more. This is typically due to an imbalance of estrogen and progesterone. Supplementation with certain natural products can help gently restore balance while you work to resolve the root cause.
Many key nutrients are critical for optimizing the biochemical processes responsible for maintaining overall health and ensuring that we feel our best every day. These include the B vitamins, vitamin C, and the fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E, and K, as well as a variety of minerals, such as zinc and magnesium. We can obtain most of these nutrients by eating a diet with plenty of variety and whole foods; however, many people can benefit from an extra boost. Be sure to consult with a practitioner before adding to or changing your supplement regimen.
Now more than ever, it is important to stay on top of immune system health to ensure you're in tip-top shape for taking on the body's foreign invaders! Several nutrients are key players in maintaining a strong immune system: vitamins A, C, and D, as well as zinc and magnesium. While we can obtain these nutrients through our diet (or via sunshine, in the case of vitamin D), many people are still deficient. In this case, it may be appropriate to supplement in order to achieve optimal levels. I've linked to my recommendations below, but always consult with your healthcare provider before adding to or changing your supplement and medication regimen. In some cases, like with vitamin D, it is advisable to have a blood level drawn to know the best dose for supplementation.
