Let’s talk about stress and how to take care of your body during chronic stress.

Stress can cause deficiencies—these deficiencies can then alter your ability to react to and recover from stress.

Chronic stress can be very dangerous to your health. Too much stress can lead to:
• Ulcers
• Heart attack
• Osteoporosis
• High blood pressure
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Poor immunity

Deficiencies caused by stress can include:
1. Magnesium
2. Zinc
3. Thiamine (vitamin B1)
4. Potassium
5. Vitamin B5
6. Amino acids
7. Calcium
8. Vitamin D
9. Vitamin C

When you go through stress, it’s easy to reach for junk foods. But it’s crucial you avoid sweets and junk food, even when you’re stressed. It’s also important to avoid foods high in sodium when you’re feeling stressed.

The more stress you go through, the healthier you need to eat. Consuming red meat and a big leafy green salad would be a great meal to consume when you go through stress.

An HRV (heart rate variability) device is a fantastic tool to help you measure your stress and how you respond to stress. This device can also help you better understand what type of exercise and nutrition your body needs at different times.

The best ways to take care of your body during stress:
• Stick to a very healthy diet (Healthy Keto®)
• Get quality sleep
• Exercise
