Too Much Stress?

Stress is part of life. We generally think of stress in negative terms, and it’s well-established that too much stress can lead to a range of health problems. But stress also makes us feel alive. It gives us the gumption to play the lead in a play, apply for that  dream job, para-sail off the coast of Mexico, even get out of bed.

For some people, though, the prospect of even the smallest amount of stress is debilitating. Others have had so much stress for so long that they now have trouble coping with it.

If the normal stress in your everyday life has become overwhelming, you may need help to increase your stress tolerance.

How to Increase Your Stress Tolerance

The underlying causes of stress intolerance are numerous. I have found that nutrient deficiencies, insufficient sleep and lack of proper exercise are the most common. Addressing these issues and introducing natural supplements into your daily routines can help increase your tolerance for stress.

  • Diet: It’s best to eat regularly scheduled meals and snacks that will provide your body with the nutrients you need. Also focus on foods that will keep your blood sugar stable.  Skipping meals or consuming excessive amounts of sugar or carbohydrates causes fluctuations in blood sugar which can lead to poor stress tolerance. Protein, fiber and healthy fat, on the other hand, will keep your blood sugar stable. This, in turn, will help keep stabilize your energy and your mood, and help you attain a healthy weight and body composition.
  • Sleep: Getting enough sleep (7-9 hours a night) is always helpful, of course. If you’re having sleep problems, read our “Short on Sleep” article for tips on how to get back to a regular sleep cycle.
  • Exercise: Gentle exercise can help improve your stress tolerance. Just walking 30 minutes a day will usually do wonders.
  • Natural Supplements: Everyone’s nutritional needs are different. To determine your unique needs, I would suggest a Vitamin and Mineral Saliva Assessment as well as running appropriate lab test for iron, thyroid and adrenal hormones.

If running these tests are not possible, at very least, take a full spectrum of highly bioavailable nutrients at a high potency, especially formulas designed with a high enough potency to really address stress.

Three-month protocol

To help increase your stress tolerance, I recommend the following supplement protocol for a minimum of a three-month period: This combination has never failed to greatly enhance energy and stress tolerance.
