These therapies are not only totally free to start today, but they are what I suggest to patients day in and out in my clinic to help them start a healthy living routine. They are vital to reset your bodies stress response, improve sleep, calm the mind and most of all CARVE OUT TIME FOR YOUR BODY TO HEAL and support your immune system for the upcoming cold and flu season.
This is important to re-set your bodies stress response and give your body time to heal. While the daylight starts to fade, find a time to retreat to bed that works for you. Also keep in mind that when you are relaxing at night and your feel yourself starting to be sleepy.. its best to go straight to bed. Don’t putz around for a half hour doing dishes, making lunches or checking email. It can trigger your stress response and that takes time for your body to work through the hormone cascade of the flight or fight stress response. If you find yourself with enough energy to mop the floors and then can’t get to sleep.. you know you are falling into this stress response cycle, so, LISTEN TO YOUR BODY and go to bed!
Please to be sure to not overeat foods that are common allergens such as processed wheat and gluten products, dairy, soy, corn and nightshades.
