We all know that life can be stressful. Whether we feel it or not, our bodies; limbs, organs, systems right down to our tiny-weeny-yet-ever-so-crucial cells, are affected by the food we eat, the liquids we drink, the things that happen to us, the air we breathe and the thoughts we have.
“Over the years your bodies become walking autobiographies,telling friends and strangers alike of the minor and major stresses of your lives.”
~ Marilyn Ferguson ~
We all know that we can make different choices on what we put in our mouths, but we can’t always avoid stressful situations – some of us live or work in them day in day out. SO what can be done to help our bodies… ?
Making Science Accessible
The science of what happens in our body when we are stressed is well documented in the fields of physiology, trauma, and nutrition. We have spent a lot of time learning from people at the fore-front of each of these fields to make sure everything we pass on through our events and 1:1 coaching is rooted in science. However – sometimes too much science can be like dry crackers… we love to share stories too – makes it easier to CHEW, swallow and digest 😉
If you would like to explore specific requirements for your own body and situation then, of course, you can get in touch.
If you want to be kept in touch with any of our CHEW Bodymatters series of opportunities to learn more about the latest research and the science behind stress, building resilience and staying healthy long term then you can get yourself on our first priority notification list.
TRE – Tension Releasing Exercises
TRE is such a brilliant way to help the body turn off the internal ‘state of alarm’ and re-balance your nervous system. If you feel like you have lots of tension – maybe you’ve been carrying it around for years, you might be having trouble functioning in your body or just long to feel calm and grounded again, this might be something to consider. Haven’t heard of it before? That doesn’t surprise me, but the rate it is growing in the UK – you soon will have! You can keep ahead of the curve and find out more here.
The impact that physical, emotional and mental stress can have on our cells is significant. It is wisdom in today’s society to be eating as well as you can, and yet not expecting that all of your nutritional requirements are being met through food alone: they are not. That is why it is important to us to help educate people on what kinds of supplements are important at different ages, how to know which is a ‘good’ supplement as they are not all created equal, and give our CHEW family access to the most reputable brand and quality products we know of world wide.

For many people weight is a big part of their story of life.
