The Ultimate Stress Management Seminar

The Ultimate Stress Management Seminar is led by Dr. Alice Fong, a naturopathic doctor who specializes in stress management and uses a wide variety of tools to help people relax, as well as teach people how they can cope with stress in a healthier way. For many people, relaxation can be very difficult, and this seminar takes a holistic approach to wellbeing by addressing stress on a mental, emotional, and physical level.

Stress is a major component of nearly everyone’s life, but it is often disregarded or not handled as well as it could be. Numerous studies have shown that prolonged stress can have a negative impact on person’s physical health and mental and emotional wellbeing. Signs can include, but are not limited to: fatigue, depression, anxiety, pain, overeating/poor dietary choices, decreased immune function, high blood pressure, and insomnia. Perhaps we cannot always change the stressors that come up in our lives, but we CAN change the way we respond to stress. And Dr. Alice's job is to show you how you can handle your stress better to optimize your health. There IS a different way you can live, let Dr. Alice show you how.

Minimize your risk!

Did you know that breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women? According to a study, about 1 in 8 women in the United States experience breast cancer at some point.

While some risk factors like family history can't be changed or avoided, there are some lifestyle changes you can make to lower the risk. Below are recommended steps you can follow to lower your chances of suffering with breast cancer.

Avoid obesity. Being overweight increases the possibility of breast cancer after menopause, when breast cancer most frequently develops.

Eat healthy. Adopt a fiber-rich diet that includes plenty of vegetables and fruit. Keep sugared drinks, refined carbohydrates, and fatty foods to a minimum. In addition, try to eat lean protein like fish or chicken breast instead of red meat.

Exercise. Research recommends that increased physical activity can lower overall breast cancer danger by about 10 percent to 30 percent. A 30-minute walk five days a week is a suitable plan.

Avoid alcohol. Restrict alcohol intake to no more than one drink per day. Research indicates that alcohol consumption is linked to breast cancer so it is important to drink in moderation.

Don’t smoke. Research reveals that long-term smoking is also associated with breast cancer to, as well as, lung cancer.

Schedule regular check-ups. Consult your physician to determine frequency of check-ups and stick to the plan he/she prescribes.

Don’t stress! Stress is a killer…receive a massage on a regular basis.
