STRESS AND NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES

Monday, April 30th, 2012

RADIO HEALTH PEARL #471      brought to you by the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center.

Dealing with daily S-T-R-E-S-S works differently for different people, simply because we’re not all wired the same way.

Medical doctors often conclude there is a lack of adequate neurotransmitters such as Dopamine, Serotonin or Epinephrine; or there is too much demand on our body’s four major stress hormones: Adrenaline, Cortisol, DHEA, and Norepinephrine.

This is very well possible in many of the diagnosed cases. But, in my opinion, many MORE people have become deficient in simple nutrients, such as B-Vitamins and Vitamin C.

Now keep in mind that I’m talking about higher numbers here, such as a Vitamin B-100 Complex two or three times daily, and Vitamin C up to 10,000 mg per day.

STRESS comes in different forms and sizes, but it very often affects the way we eat and what we eat. When we’re stressed we may eat all the time or may stop eating all together. And when we do eat, it is often high-carbohydrate food, low in vitamins B and C.

Stop-in some time and read from our library of helpful books and magazines at …the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center, on North 19th Avenue.
