Your Body & Stress: A Three Part Series (1 of 3)
Everyday in my practice I ask my patients about their stress; what are their particular stressors and how are they coping? I’m interested in knowing how they perceive stress and spend time educating them on how it can negatively impact their health. This allows me to help them create a plan to support their body through stressful times and improve their health and well being.
Yes, I’m a Naturopathic Doctor, and I’d like to introduce myself less formally than your typical autobiography page and also let you know why I’m creating this health blog.
First off, I’ll start with why I chose to practice Naturopathic Medicine. Growing up I was fortunate to be a healthy and active kid. I played lots of sports, which kept me active and interested in nutrition and I was also a bit of a science nerd in school. I loved the science and kinesiology courses in high school, so when I headed off to University I knew I wanted to study biological sciences – simply put, the study of living things.
