Ways to Manage Stress


Posted by Dr. Scott Wilson | 10-Mar-2017

Roughly seventy to ninety percentage of most medical issues have an underlying root cause of stress. Dr. Andra Campitelli discusses how your body needs a “rest period” to overcome stress plateaus. However, due to many of us being constantly on the go, our bodies do not get the rest that is required. Due to this, stress plays a huge role and impacts our overall health.

In the following video, Dr. Andra Campitelli discusses stress and how it can be the underlying root to a number of health problems.

Hi, I am Dr. Andra Campitelli, Naturopathic Doctor and Coordinator of the Nutrition and Naturopathy Program at PhysioMed, and today we’re gonna talk about stress. Did you know that 70% to 90% of most medical visits have an underlined root cause of stress? Stress is one of those things that most of us are just used to. We expected in our daily life. But we’re not supposed to live in a society of constant stress and constantly on the go. Our body will mount a stress response which is normal. We get that fight-or-flight response and our hormones go up with that. But we’re supposed to plateau and then our body is supposed to come to a rest period. The problem in today’s society is that we never do that. We’re constantly on the go, on the go, and our bodies is never given that chance to get that break. And that’s for some of those health conditions and the detrimental impact of the stress plays a role. The other place here that stress is really impacting is our mental health. Specifically, anxiety and depression. Two of the most common mental health conditions that we see in society today. But did you know that you have options? There are ways to manage that stress in your life when the stress isn’t changing. And there are also really great natural options. Things like botanicals, nutraceuticals, different supplements and lifestyle changes that you could do to help manage your anxiety and your depression in conjunction with your current treatment plan. Every person will have a different plan. So if you’re looking for a detailed medically supervised plan to help you manage your stress and you mental health concerns, then you should visit your PysioMed naturopath.
