You hear about it every day – so many of the common maladies suffered by our families, friends and neighbors seem to come from stress of some kind – but what is stress, what causes it, and what can we do about it?

Stress is your body’s response to the conditions around you – if your environment is friendly, you will have less stress, and if it is less friendly, your stress will increase. The stronger and healthier your body, the better you handle stress.

# Basic Kinds of Stress -- 

  • Physical stress is mechanical stress, either injury or wear and tear, often affecting your bones, muscles, joints, and nervous system.  This is the type of stress that leads to all the "-itis" type problems -- arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, fasciitis, etc.

  • Chemical stress is toxic stress, either from taking in poisons or not nourishing your body with the proper foods and nutrients, affecting your organs, nervous system, immune system and skin.

  • Emotional stress is psychological stress, from poor coping strategies, financial or family pressures, or the absence of stress reduction and relaxation practices, influencing your digestion, sleep, circulation, and nervous system.

Authorities agree that about 70% of serious disease is preventable, by adopting lifestyle choices that reduce these three types of stress. 

Improve your diet and reduce your intake of stress-producing foods like sugars, fried foods and heavy fats.  You literally are what you eat!  Inflammatory foods (and food-like substances) affect your gut, which plays a huge part in your mental and physical health.  Research is consistently showing that basic nutritional changes can improve inflammation (those "-itises") and mental and emotional health!

Ease your mind by including meditation, prayer, yoga or some other stress reduction technique.  There are numerous simple breathing techniques that can calm stress and anxiety.  We also use BrainTap Stress Relief Technology here at the office to help you learn to calm and focus your mind. 

Get yourself in shape by exercising, while minimizing your physical stress with good posture and regular chiropractic care.  If you are having difficulty moving, or seem to keep re-injuring yourself, Dr. Morrone can help you figure out why, and provide specific care and recommendations to help you improve your fitness safely!

Learn about these wellness principles and apply them to keep your stresses under control – if you need help or guidance, please ask Dr. Morrone!  You can save yourself a lot of unnecessary suffering and expense, and improve the quality of your life while you’re doing it

I found Dr. Morrone to be very pleasant and I find her approach refreshing. Other chiropractors I have visited basically give you an adjustment without discussing the neurological connections. Looking forward to working with her and also to see how she may be able to help my daughter.
