I’m very excited to announce that I will be exhibiting and speaking at the Trinity Health Freedom Expo in the Chicago area this weekend (October 26th and 27th)!
For those of you who are local to the area, the conference will be held at the Tinley Park Convention Center. We will be located at booth #302, and I am speaking at 10 am on Saturday in North Pavilion #4 & 5.
The topic of my presentation will be stress and how to prevent it from taking its toll on you!
How about you?
I would like to try to include all my readers and give you the benefit of my talk, even if you are not close to Chicago.
So let’s do this—I’ll give you this little stress self-assessment test so you can see how much stress is ruling your life, then we’ll talk about ways to counteract its effects.
Ways to fight back at stress
Here are some of the most effective ways you can ensure that stress doesn’t get the best of you (or your health!):
1- Get regular exercise
I know exercise is a dirty word to many people, but nothing beats it in terms of undoing the harmful effects of stress.
The key is picking something you like (or will at least tolerate), doing it for 30 minutes 3-4 days a week, creating doable goals, and getting a buddy if possible.
You have 168 hours in a week—carve out 2 of those for exercise.
2- Pamper your liver
Your liver really gets challenged when you are stressed—it’s responsible for putting glucose into your bloodstream for energy, as well as making cholesterol for your stress hormones.
So, it’s important to pamper your poor liver! You can do this by drinking a large glass of water every morning to which a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime has been added. Also, incorporate onions and garlic into your meals, as they are helpful to the liver.
And of course, watch the booze. Don’t rely on alcohol to relieve your stress.
3- Help your gut recover
Your microbiome takes a major hit when you’re stressed—that’s why you find yourself getting sick easier when you’re under stress. So, it’s crucial to help repopulate your intestinal good guys with a full-spectrum probiotic blend like Super Shield.
Super Shield’s carefully designed blend of 13 well-studied and proven probiotic strains help support a strong, healthy intestinal flora balance, which will in turn help pave the way for strong immune function, more regular BMs, less gas and bloating and better nutrient absorption.
4- Supplement with vitamin D
All your body’s vitamin resources are challenged during times of stress.
This is especially a concern with vitamin D since most of us are already deficient in this crucial nutrient!
Vitamin D is essential for bone, brain and cardiovascular health, as well as helping to tame inflammatory immune responses such as those seen in asthma, allergies and autoimmune conditions.
Since food sources of vitamin D are limited, it’s wise to supplement with a well-rounded product like Optimum DK Formula with FruiteX-B.
Optimum DK Formula provides a therapeutic 5,000 IUs of vitamin D3, plus vitamins K1 and K2 and the mineral boron. This “dream team” of nutrients works together synergistically to pave the way for better health and a strong, smart immune system!
5- Other stress relievers to try
Here are some other stress relief measures to try:
- Counseling or therapy
- Essential oils (especially helpful is lavender)
- Deep breathing
Hope to see you this weekend at the Trinity Health Freedom Expo, but at least you have the benefit of my presentation either way!
To your health,
