about the negative impact of stress;
inspired by the calming effect
of breast milk on babies,
they have isolated a peptide
that can help adults feel calmer too.
It is hard to believe that 80% of doctor visits are for symptoms that — in one way or another — are related to stress.
It’s no wonder that stress has become such an issue, as we are exposed to so much, so fast in our everyday modern life: decisions, data, developments, differences, deadlines and delays. Oh, that traffic jam!
We tend to hover in and out of warp speed in our regular day’s activities. Add to this all the stressors mentioned above and you have a recipe for an overload disaster.
Health Consultants Have Solutions for Reducing Stress Impact
Of course, we need to eat right and take the appropriate general nutritional supplements, and as important is looking at how we can alter our lifestyle to naturally reduce stress.
We need to take a few moments each day to breathe and to look around with nothing on our minds.
Exercise is a wonderful stress reliever along with yoga, meditation, Pilates and more.
However, at times deep breathing and exercise may either not be enough or we are so overwhelmed we can’t or simply won’t take the time to look after ourselves.
What Stress Relievers Will Work Best for You?
There are natural herbs and supplements that can help us deal with stress:
- sometimes we need something to just get us over the hump
- other times we literally need to replace reserves of nutrients that have been used up by the stressful situation
For my clients suffering from stress in their lives, I use a combination of herbs and whole food supplements along with discussions on lifestyle management.
it’s important to choose a lifestyle stress management technique
that can comfortably fit into your life without adding to the stress load”
I think you might find the following of interest as a quick and natural method for dealing with stress on a short term basis. A research team noted the calming effects of breast milk on nursing babies. They theorized there was a type of natural anti-anxiety factor in breast milk.
The research team was able to isolate a particular peptide from the large milk protein molecule. This research team developed a 15-day research trial on the effects of this isolated milk protein peptide on stress.
For the trial a number of objective physical parameters were measured both pre and post stress. During the trial, all of these measurable stress indicator parameters improved in the group taking the milk protein peptide!
The study also measured subjective or perceived stress of the test subjects. After the 15 days of testing, the people taking the milk protein peptide reported better sleep and a perceived improved quality of life.
Therefore, both the measurable objective parameters and the subjective results of the test were positive for the effects of this milk protein peptide.
If you are stressed, I’m not suggesting you go out and start to drink a lot of milk as this won’t work as you will not get enough of the specific milk protein peptide. Always remember it is important to address the underlying cause of symptoms, but sometimes we just need to break the cycle or add missing nutrients. This is when a naturopath or nutritionist can help direct you to the correct herbs and/or supplements for your particular situation.
