How To: Stress Less During the Holidays

How to do approach the Christmas season? Is your calendar booked with something each night of the week? Spending time with friends and family is one of the focal points during this season, but we have found that stress levels can also be at an unreasonably high level during this time as well. Dr. Bob shared his tips to help us stress-less on our sister site, druglessdoctor.com & we have them here for you today:

I have read that stress creates over 80% of all sickness and disease today. Due to all of the instant gratification, stimulation and communication in society today it seems that the days tend to fly by! I know from my own perspective the week skips from Monday to Friday in a blink. Our schedules are filled with day to day chores, family and personal responsibilities and opportunities to help our friends, relatives and co-workers.

For the purpose of this entry, we will focus on two general responses to stress. There can be a positive stress, celebrating a victory or a negative one – living with the consequences of a mis-step or reset. People living today, and this is a general statement, receive happiness from the positive response and appear to be taught from the negative ones. Unfortunately, the consequences of a negative stress often times can create distress for years and even generations.

Stress has a variety of impact possibilities to the physiology of the body; it literally cause a pit in your stomach, hives on your skin, loose stools, hair loss, sleepless nights, dry mouth, back pain, headaches, “tics” and about five hundred other responses. So, what does stress really do; it literally pushes buttons that speed up the adrenal gland causing more cortisol which races the heart, increases blood pressure, burns muscle and starts your metabolism running.  How you handle the stress impacts your immune system response. Stress impacts several areas in the body and has a negative impact on your health especially when it is constant and sustained as some of you may endure during the Christmas season.

Stress tends to cause an acid pH which burns up your minerals. It is wise to add additional minerals from the beginning of November until the spring time. We use Multi Mins™, three to six a day on an empty stomach. Body signals for mineral need would include cold sores, leg cramps at night, itchy skin, legs twitching in bed, craving salt and/or sugar.

Stress exhausts the adrenal glands which is a very important natural pain reliever, hormone maker and blood sugar controller. Adrenal fatigue is common with the additional hours, schedules and commitments during the holiday season. I encourage our patients to take two ADB5™ upon waking and two at noon. Body signal for exhausted adrenal function include dizzy from a sit to a stand position, craving sugar or salt, back going out easy, a need to wear sunglasses, pain and inflammation.

Stress during the Christmas season tends to rapidly burn through B vitamins; you may notice sore muscles, difficulty in staying asleep, crying easy, noise sensitivity.  B vitamins are also exhausted additionally with sugar consumption. I encourage our patients to take three Bio-B Complex™ a day for three months. If you notice pain after snow shoveling you would be wise to substitute the Bio-B Complex to Bio-B 100’s™, four to six a day. The Bio-B Complex is very potent and should only be taken for three months at the maximum.
