  • countering the affects of stress

    My professional life has recently bottemed out. Nightmares and eye twitches are 2 of the physiological effects apparent to me. I can only assume this means some bad stress hormone things are going on internally. Is there any nutritional intervention that might help counter some of this stuff?

    Hi, sorry to hear you are struggling. As a start, try some magnesium - supplements to get you going and plenty of dark, leafy greens. Magnesium is indicated by the muscle spasms/twitching. This may also help the nightmares as it is a relaxant and I think there are herbal supplements for sleep/calming around that contain magnesium and other stuff (haven't used any OTC products myself). If you can get to a naturopath, they would be able to tailor the supplements to suit.

    Hope you get it sorted soon, that stuff sucks.
