A Functional Medicine Approach to Stress Managment
Many of us believe stress is a byproduct of our modern life. We push ourselves daily through our modern-day living situations and always-on environment, accumulating the effects of stress. Over time, our bodies ability to deal with stress becomes weaker leading to health issues. Chronic stress has become an epidemic and it’s not just by feeling the pressure, or sleeplessness or overreacting to a certain situation. This type of stress is mental stress, however, there are other types of stressors in your life contributing to your symptoms.
At the London Centre for Functional Medicine, we aim to identify the source of your stress – whether they be dietary, structural, psychological or environmental. We create a personalized treatment plan to reduce your exposure to these stressors and supporting the other body systems that maybe be affected.
Every patient is unique and while one situation might affect one person in a negative way, this might not affect another person in the same way. Your practitioner will develop a treatment plan that addresses the root cause of your health concerns
