+Anti-Stress Foods To Neutralize The Harmful Effects Of Stress

Simply defined, stress is any physical, mental or emotional strain placed on your body. In this day and age, who among us is not stressed? Every day we deal with jobs, kids, spouses, houses, the economy, terrorism, etc. Stress can be very damaging because, among other things, it uses up your vitamins and minerals at a rapid rate. Stress left unchecked can deplete us and grind us down. In fact, all the symptoms associated with stress – irritability, racing heart, headaches, high blood pressure & insomnia actually have been found to be deficiency symptoms of all the nutrients depleted. In this workshop, you will learn which nutrients are depleted and which foods can counter-act and reverse the harmful effects of stress. We’ll discuss simple stress reduction techniques that can easily fit into your day.
