Balancing Our Lives to Ensure Well-being
Tips to Beat Holiday Stress

Health and wellness is not only about what you eat, but about the way you live your whole life. Your thoughts, feelings, emotions, actions, stress, etc. make up your total health.

As the holiday stress levels begin to rise, it's important to balance ourselves to ensure that we achieve the well-being we desire. It's very easy to get swept away in all of the commercialism of the season. All too often we find ourselves wondering the day after the holidays where the season went. It seems to get lost somewhere between the shopping mall and the bank, and all you have to show for it are aching muscles and credit card receipts.

This year try something different. Give what you can afford and resist the temptation to buy things on credit, for that will only cause unwanted stress when the bills come rolling in.

Combating Perinatal Depression Through Brain-wave Training

Pregnancy should be a joyful time in a woman's life, but for some expectant moms, hormonal changes, stress and lifestyle alterations can trigger anxiety and/or depression. Symptoms of prenatal and postpartum depression can persist for weeks or months and generally do not resolve themselves. Complicating matters for treatment options is the fact that antidepressants taken during pregnancy have established downsides such as an increased risk of miscarriage, preterm birth and neurobehavioral problems in newborns. In addition, many nursing mothers are reluctant to take antidepressant medications while breastfeeding.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a common therapeutic approach to treating depression, has been shown to be equally as effective as the antidepressant fluoxetine (Prozac) but without the associated side effects. Neurofeedback brain-wave training is another viable non-drug alternative that can help reduce or eliminate some or all of prescribed psychotropic medications. Contact us to learn how BrainCore neurofeedback therapy can be an effective part of your preconception planning as well as for your pre and post natal care.

Advice to Employers: Invest in Your Employees' Health

A recent Vitality Institute report sheds light on what many of us in the healthcare industry have been saying for years: invest in your employees' health to encourage disease prevention, or pay more in healthcare costs. It's ultimately up to each individual to maintain his or her own health, but employers can encourage this in their workforce.

It is common knowledge that stress has been linked to many diseases, if not causing them then certainly worsening them. A Healthy People 2000 research study by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services found that stress contributes to 50% of all diseases in the U.S. and that 70-80% of all visits to the doctor are stress related. The study reported that "The cost of job stress in the U.S. is estimated at $200 billion annually, including costs of absenteeism, lost productivity and insurance claims."
