Things I love to fight stress and stay well

culturelle probiotics

Gut health is related to mental health, and it is important that our gut is diverse. Through research, these are great even for those with a lot of sensitivities or allergies like Mast Cell Activation.

LMNT Packets

I take half of one a day with water. Keeping our body hydrated and balanced with electrolytes is important for our physical and mental health. It helps our body get what we need. These are also great to help with a lot of chronic issues like POTS, migraines, cervical cranial instability, neuro issues, etc. I recommend this kind because electrolytes should be salty and not sweet, these have no sugar!

rooibos tea

This is a great tea because it can help with many different things. It helps reduce inflammation which is great for anyone. It has a bunch of antioxidants in it. It can even boost heart health. It also can help to fight stress. So, it is great for physical health and mental health!

green tea

Green tea is excellent for circulation. Good circulation and blood flow is key to healing so many ailments. Blood brings oxygen and nutrients needed to heal inflammation, pain, etc. Good circulation is also good for the brain. If our brain receives good oxygen, we can think more clearly and be more focused. Caffeinated or decaf is good.

tulsi turmeric and ginger tea

This is also known to have a calming effect. It increases circulation, reduces inflammation, and fights stress.

peppermint oil

This is great for congestion, GI issues, and soothing sore muscles. It can even reduce headaches. It has so much versatility and so many health benefits. Keeping our body healthy leads to keeping our mind healthy.

dry brush

Dry brushes are a great way to keep the immune system happy. Dry brushing helps with lymphatic draining, increases circulation and energy, and helps remove toxins from the body.

the happiness trap-russ harris

This book uses ACT interventions which can really help with intrusive thoughts and reducing stress and anxiety. I use interventions from this book often and find it to be very helpful.
