STRESS AND RELAXATION - usually too much of the first, and too little of the latter! Today’s multi-tasking heroine may well be living at a pace which can wreak havoc with stress hormone levels. This in turn may upset the delicate balance of other hormones, resulting in PMS, depression, menopausal symptoms, osteoporosis and myriad other problems. It is easy to ignore the part that continued stress can play in the production and aggravation of these conditions; however, in many cases relief is only forthcoming when the underlying stress levels are addressed.
There are several herbal complexes and supplements containing carefully selected ingredients which are designed to reduce the effects of stress. However, you should also take a careful look at your lifestyle, and try to find a more equitable and healthy balance of work and relaxation.
