7 Ways To Deal With Stress In A Healthy Way
Continuing on with the education about stress and how it relates to autoimmune disease, I want to offer these suggestions.
Learn to react to stress in a healthy way
Stressful events are facts of life. You may not be able to change your current situation, but you can take steps to manage the impact these events have on you.
You can learn to identify what stresses you and how to take care of yourself physically and emotionally in the face of stressful situations.
Stress management strategies include:
Eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise and plenty of sleep
Practicing relaxation techniques such as trying yoga, practicing deep breathing, getting a massage or learning to meditate
Taking time for hobbies, such as reading a book or listening to music
Fostering healthy friendships
Having a sense of humor
Volunteering in your community
Professional testing and evaluation of adrenals and other hormones
Get your adrenals tested through Integrative Medicine lab testing.
I recommend you work with Hester Morrissey, at www.bodynew.solutions, to perform Integrative Medicine lab testing to see how your adrenal system and related hormones are responding to stress and create an
individualized plan to get your adrenals back on track.
Integrative Medicine lab testing measures your cortisol levels throughout a normal day and identifies whether your cortisol level is a healthy or unhealthy curve. Healthy cortisol production helps you wake
up in the morning, sustain energy during the day and should drop naturally in the evening so you can sleep well. This testing can also identify hormone imbalances triggered by overproduction of cortisol. She uses specialized lab testing to measure how your body responds to stress with cortisol throughout the day.
Armed with this information and your unique health story, Hester will put together an individualized wellness plan for you that, if followed, results in improved energy and vitality. Your wellness plan will include recommendations for nutrition, exercise, stress mastery, mental re-boots and spiritual growth practices.
