Stress is perceived differently by everyone and we all have different ways of being able to cope with stressors. Whether it is stress related to study, the work place, family life, or just day to day activities, it is important to realise the condition and seek help. There are many ways to help cope with stress such as counselling, exercise, connecting with friends and family, taking ‘me time’. There are also many natural options to treat stress which include herbal and nutrient based products, our Naturopath Sarah can discuss and advise on the different options available.
Start the year off with a bang and make sure you are in the very best health you can be in! So many of us make New Years Resolutions but find it hard to stick to them. Here are our tips for New Year’s Resolutions!
Naturopaths treat the patient holistically, therefore treating the person as a whole rather than just their symptoms. Naturopaths can treat a wide variety of issues and quite often approach them differently to how an orthodox doctor would. Using natural remedies, a Naturopath can treat gut issues, decreased immune function, mental health, fatigue, pain, insomnia and wellbeing.
Here at Friendlies Chemist we have a fully qualified Naturopath in store, Sarah; she is here five days a week. Sarah has two university degrees, which means she can offer you professional, highly relevant, scientific based advice. A Naturopath treats the body as a whole and offers a holistic approach to health. Naturopaths use a range of medicinal options such as, herbal, nutritional, lifestyle, diet advice and homeopathy.
Stress is a natural feeling, but some do feel it affects their life more so than others. Stress can be taking an exam, time management, a new job or long-term stress. Stress effects everyone differently, therefore it is important to make sure you are dealing with your stress in the most effective way. Stress can have quite an effect on your body, difficultly sleeping, lack of concentration, poor immune system and fatigue.
