Focus on Health:
The Super Hero Syndrome
By: Joseph Steyr, Naturopathic Doctor
On the outside you are calm and in control, juggling family, career, personal health, and all your life commitments. On the inside you are tired or even burned out. The good news, you have lots of natural health solutions. Below are a few good options to help you.
Nutritional and Herbal solutions
There are a large variety of nutritional and herbal products that support energy and stress. B complex is one of the more common options, but often more effective is L-tyrosine which is an amino acid the support dopamine for mental focus and memory. Dopamine also is one of the pleasure chemicals in our brain, so L-tyrosine helps on many levels.
A great herb for burnout is Licorice root which boosts the bodies’ energy and helps us recover faster from the burnout. However, if you are on blood pressure medication talk to your naturopathic doctor before you take this herb.
When a person is a taking medication or has conflicts stopping them from using herbs, homeopathic remedies are often the best solution. Passiflora plex is one of my favorite, and is great at stopping the restlessness that comes with stress. The product can be used with herbs too, as the herbs help you recover, this product calms down the mind.
D eep breathing is one of the easiest and fastest ways to help our bodies cope with stress. It is also something we can do anywhere and anytime, whether at the office, in court or in a board meeting.
So, to reduce these feelings of stress and anxiety, and to improve our cognitive function, the easiest solution is deep breathing. Even just for 2 minutes. Try this quick deep breathing exercise. Place your hand on your stomach and count to 5 slowly as you inhale. Then count to 5 as you slowly exhale. Try to focus only on your breath, watching the rise and fall of your stomach as you breathe. This breathing exercise will have an immediate impact on your stress by relieving symptoms of panic, brain fog and that fatigued feeling at the end of the day. Try doing this regularly throughout the day and you will rapidly notice that you will have more energy at the end of the workday.
