Stress has become the 21st century condition. In our experience, stress either underlies or is a symptom of the vast majority of conditions we see and treat at Living Wellness Centre. Stress can affect all aspects of your physiology including sleep, digestion, pain, mood, hormones, energy and immunity…we could go on. Why are we letting it run our lives?
The body is equipped to handle small bouts of stress from time to time, but chronic stress is another story; and chronic stress is hard to avoid in our busy modern culture. When physical symptoms appear, it’s your body’s way of telling you to slow down.
At Living Wellness Centre, we create realistic and individualized programs that provide you with lifestyle support, effective and relevant stress management skills, and appropriate therapeutic treatments. In this collaborative way we can help you prevent disease and live a life with more freedom and ease.
Stress is a form of suffering. Look at your body and see what stress does to the body and its functions - what it does to the heart, the circulation, the immune system, the digestive function, the liver...
Stress is not what happens to us. It is our response to what happens. And response is something we can choose.
The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.
