We are Moms!
Brooke Fields and Rachel Sposito are both mothers of young children. They know the stress of motherhood first-hand. They experienced the potential for chronic stress often while taking care of their families, running a business, caring for their patients and supporting their households. They have gained both personal and professional experience in helping to find a life balance that allows for management of stress.
They understand, through personal experience, how easily the ‘busyness’ of life can so quickly and subtly begin to cause negative physical, mental and emotional consequences. We can help you develop strategies to self-monitor and manage your stress levels to minimize the health effects that chronic stress causes and keep you functioning at your best!
The Stress Response
Your “fight or flight” response is important for survival. That being said, the same hormones that keep us alive in times of stress can wreak havoc on our bodies if we are constantly in a state of preparedness.
Some of the ways chronic stress can negatively impact your health include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Headaches and migraines
- Heartburn and indigestion
- A weakened immune system
- High blood pressure
- High blood sugar
- Muscle tension and chronic pain
- Abnormal menstruation
- Infertility issues
- Respiratory distress
- Overeating or decreased appetite
- Increase in alcohol consumption
- Drug abuse
- Social withdrawal
What is right and effective for one patient might not be what is right for another. Stress reduction is a very personal thing and, for that reason, the techniques we recommend to decrease stress will vary and be specific to each patient.
