Stress Reduction Techniques

Less Stress can lead to a Reduction of Gas and Bloating


Stress is almost inevitable nowadays. We all encounter it at some level and almost on a daily basis. So what can we do to deal with stress so that it doesn’t affect our health or relationships? There are many ways to find balance in life. Here I’ll name a few and I invite you to give them a try and find the one that really works for you.


When you meditate, you clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress.
The emotional benefits of meditation can include:

  • Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
  • Building skills to manage your stress
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Focusing on the present
  • Reducing negative emotions
There are many different types of mediation such as:
  • Guided Meditation
  • Mindfulness Meditation
  • Mantra Meditation
  • Transcendental Meditation
  • Qi gong
  • Tai Chi
  • Yoga


As we learned last week, the body secretes an assortment of hormones, such as cortisol, into the bloodstream as a reaction to stress. Studies have shown that acupuncture blocks the chronic, stress-induced elevations of these hormones and the pathways that cause “fight or flight”.

Balanced Nutritional Diet

Stress and a poor diet can cause an imbalance of blood sugars resulting in tiredness, lack of concentration, and mood swings. An excess of caffeine negatively affects your hormones and can result in restlessness, lapses of concentration, and a decrease in your ability to be fully effective. Also, under stress, vital nutrients are used up more quickly, the body’s natural defenses can be severely affected and leave the person with a weaker immune system. This leaves the person more prone to contracting illnesses. Well-balanced nutrition will boost our resistance against the effects that stress brings upon the body.

Other common ways to deal with stress are:

  • quality sleep
  • exercise
  • a walk in nature
  • spiritual studies/practices
  • laughing!
