Dealing With Stress

Stress… everyone deals with it at one time or another

stress boyds alternative health blog postThe way we deal (Or don’t deal) with it is another story. The last few months I have noticed a trend when doing Zyto scans. I don’t think I have scanned more than a handful of people that are not dealing with physical symptoms from stress. From Gut issues to headaches to sleeplessness to being sick all the time to body pain in one area or another. I always tell people we hold most of our stress in our gut and that is turning into physical symptoms of cramping, gas, bloating, diarrhea even vomiting. We also hold it in our shoulders which can cause neck/back pain and headaches. Stress can cause so many issues if not dealt with properly including all the above symptoms as well as physical pain. There are so many ways to help the body cope better with stress, coming in for a Zyto scan will help us determine where to start from different calming products to counseling, massage, hormone balancing, more sleep, detoxing…stress literally affects every aspect of a person’s life and every system in the body as well.

We can also determine if there is an emotion that is causing more stress on the body by doing a quick emotional scan. I have talked about this previously in a blog post Like I said we have so many products we can recommend even before a client comes in for an appointment just to help calm the mind and nervous system. I do however highly recommend doing a full health scan to make sure we can help with all the symptoms someone is dealing with for overall health.

We have a few trusted somewhat local practitioners and clinics we can refer clients to. Whether it be for counseling, life coaching or other forms of helping someone feel better (massage therapy, Chiropractic care, Acupuncture etc.) I’ll list our references below for anyone to check out if they need some extra help with feeling better after being stressed for months (or years…)
