Working with clients, I help them to shift their diet toward more health giving and less stress producing foods like avoiding sugar, flour and industrial seed oils like canola and soybean oil. You can get a copy of my Optimal You Nutrition Plan, by signing up for my newsletter on my website to see what types of foods I suggest for most people.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for some ways to reduce the impact that stress has on your system then you could consider some of my favorite options:
B Complex Vitamins
B vitamins are beneficial for mood, energy and mental sharpness. When we are stressed we may need more to keep us feeling good. This is my favorite formula from nutraMetrix as it contains activated forms that the body can use easily and the isotonic formula makes it very bioavailable. nutraMetrix Isotonix Activated B Complex
These are natural substances that work with your body to help you adapt and normalize your body’s response to stress. There are many different adaptogens. Bliss is a formula containing a variety that I like to use when I know I will be under more stress than is typical. Take care if you are using an anti-depressant.
Another way to deliver natural plant compounds to the body is through Essential Oils. Like many adaptogens, these have been utilized for centuries for their healing properties. I love these three oil blends for stress: Serenity, Balance & Peace. They also just smell delicious. You can search for them at my Essential Oils Store.
