By Dr. Michelle Hagel ND 

Right now we are in a time of tremendous uncertainty, this causes increased worry and stress as we try to plan and anticipate the future. Unfortunately, I do not have a magic solution to make all the stresses go away affecting our daily lives. However, what I can do is suggest support to change the way you react to situations. For example, when we are stressed, we deplete various nutrients in our system, by ensuring these nutrients like vitamin b are topped up we are able to respond in a much easier and calmer manner. There are also many other strategies like acupuncture and herbal therapies to calm our response and replenish the nervous system. So the more stress we have it acts as a cascade to make us more responsive to stress and worry.

Let us help you stop this cycle and manage this uncertain time in a calm and level-headed manner. Call into the clinic to book a consultation we can recommend injection, acupuncture, or herbal therapies to navigate your individual case.

Remember to always breathe. I recommend a box breathing strategy inhale 4 seconds, hold 4 seconds, exhale 4 seconds, hold 4 seconds, and repeat for several cycles.
