Stress Management Treatment
Today’s busy women are living extremely stressful lives as they balance careers, family life, relationships and children, leaving little time for self-care. Chronic stress can manifest in many ways, including insomnia, weight gain, skin issues, chronic fatigue, anxiety and/or depression.
When the body is under chronic stress, both stress hormones and reproductive hormones can become out of balance. Chronic daily stress places an extra demand on the adrenal glands, which regulate stress hormones, causing an increase in production of the ‘stress hormone’ cortisol. This cortisol is produced in large amounts at the expense of the other adrenal hormones and can have a negative impact on progesterone, estrogen and testosterone production, resulting in an overall imbalance and hormonal dysregulation.
At Bronte Wellness Boutique, we test adrenal hormones and help patients manage their stress through counselling, supportive supplements, balancing acupuncture sessions, as well as lifestyle and dietary changes. It is essential to find ways to maintain balance in our busy lives – we specialize in helping you regain your peace and sense of balance.
