Are You Leading Your Patients on What to Do Next?May 12, 2020
As the dust is starting to settle from the COVID fallout and unprecedented demand for immune supporting supplements…our jobs are just beginning.
Fellow practitioner, we are in an era of building resilience and building immunity, creating the defensive attack we need to weather the next storm or pandemic, or just stay healthy in times of calmness and peace.
It is up to us to take the lead.
And…its time to start highlighting that you are the obvious expert in your community…the one for your patients to follow and learn from.
Stay tuned, I will be sharing a lot more on this with you in coming posts, and first, I would like you to sit back, and think about how you can start reaching out to your herd, letting them know that you are the go-to…because in just a short time, you will have access to the teachings to share with your patients.
If I can suggest…start with stress management. Here is just a tid-bit of bullet points you can share…taking from a recent article I wrote and sent out to my list
- Some tidbits of what history and the research data tells us:
- Social distancing results in some degree of social isolation, disengagement from social ties, connections and studies have reported negative psychological effects including post traumatic stress symptoms, confusion, and anger.
- Stressors included longer quarantine duration, fears of infection, frustration, boredom, inadequate supplies (toilet paper lol), financial loss and stigma.
- Separation from loved ones, loss of freedom, uncertainty over disease status.
- As far as foundational elements for the adrenals, aka our stress glands, that help buffer us and adapt us to the stress response, I love Vitamin C, B Complex and Magnesium.
- Where B Vitamins can be used to treat or prevent numerous disease states and disorders including; memory issues and dementia, heart disease, nervous system dysfunction, pain, stress, diabetes and more…today we are going to talk about the role they play in our energy levels, as well as how well we sleep…two critical areas of stress adaption and management.
- B vitamins have a special quality where they can help wake you up in the morning, and help you get to sleep at night.
- Often a reason for lack of energy is what is known as adrenal fatigue. Your adrenal glands manufacture several hormones, such as cortisol, that regulate how well your body can adapt and cope with stress.
- B vitamins are needed for the production of adrenal hormones, such as cortisol, as well as moderating stress activity, helping to remedy adrenal fatigue.
- B vitamins act as coenzymes, to ensure the needed fuel of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are delivered for the energy dependent pathways supporting cellular energy production.
- In addition to playing a key role in the body’s ability to create energy and support adrenal health, B vitamins support the synthesis of serotonin, which not only will help improve your mood, serotonin plays a critical role along with cortisol in helping us wake-up in the morning.
- B vitamins are needed for the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin. In the evening, our body’s look to our serotonin pools, and convert the serotonin to melatonin to help induce a restful night time sleep- all dependent on the role of the B vitamins.
I then go on to promote one of my favorite B Complex’s at a special discount, telling them to stay tuned, as I will be sharing more information in the coming days.
