Overcoming Digestive Issues

Jenna From Florida Writes:

I recently had my first child. I am a working mother with a demanding career. I have found it difficult to juggle the stress of being an executive, wife, and now mother. My daughter is 6 months now and I am having constant bouts of diarrhea, gas, bloating, and then constipation. My doctor says they can't find anything wrong. They think it might be Irritable Bowel Syndrome. What should I do?

Dear Jenna,

The Missing Link For Better Sleep

David from Iowa Writes:

I have been dealing with sleep issues for more than a year now. I tend to struggle to stay asleep and generally wake up around 2 or 3 am. What do you think could be causing this? I don’t want to start taking sleep medications but I am tired all day long. 

 

Dear David,

New Ways to Improve Anxiety

Jamie From Michigan Writes:

My doctor recently diagnosed me with anxiety. She wants to put me on some of the basic medications but I really don’t know if that is what I want to do. Is there anything that you know of that can help? My life is stressful and I want to be able to cope. Thanks in advance.

Dear Jamie,

I know life can be challenging at times. Responsibility increases, financial challenges, family issues, and our personal health seems to get put on the back burner. When anxiety hits we have to look at a couple of reason why this is. The main reason for anxiety is typically due to lack of the neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-amino butyric acid). When GABA gets low in the brain, anxiety can develop. 

So just take some GABA right?

Cancer Super Foods

Noelle from Denver, CO writes:

My mother just got diagnosed with breast cancer and my father has dealt with prostate cancer. I want to help them learn to eat better and have a better lifestyle. Outside of their medical treatment, what can they do?
