Understanding how our body functions and the origin of disease will help you succeed in making a change and improving your health.

At the end of the year with a lot of deadlines approaching, holiday stress rising, and the “to do” list growing, do you get run down? Is fatigue and stress more prevalent in your life at this time? Do your eating habits worsen? Does your health suffer as a consequence?

Here is a 15 min presentation about what happens to our bodies as deadlines approach and the current year comes to an end. The topic stems from my teenage patients, but the message here is applicable to all age groups. Perhaps this will help you understand what is happening in your body and it will motivate you to make some changes, no matter how small, so you can thrive this Holiday Season.
