Meditate. Go for a nice walk in a park. Sit and listen to relaxing instrumental music. Take time out from your busy schedule. Prioritize: separate the important from the unimportant. Remove negative people from your life. You can do it. Good luck : )

My stress level seems to climb higher each day. I don t know if I m depressed, stressed out, mourning the loss of my brother or just being stupid. I m never hungry, but when I realize I haven t eaten I have one of my nutrition shakes, but then I binge eat.... How do I differentiate between a problem and just being ridiculous?

Hello. I was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism based on high TSH result (6.4). I was prescribed levothyroxine which I haven t started yet. What part does stress play in raising the level (I ve had a lot recently) and shouldn t I get a full thyroid panel done first to determine in more detail what is wrong/needed? And can I get my TSH down to normal range with natural remedies (i.e. vitamins/ minerals designed to do just that)? Thank you!

Have always had a normal to low blood pressure. We live quite a stressful lifestyle but try to eat right and exercise. On most recent visit to Dr. had a pressure of 150/90. Trying to monitor what we are eating and taking some self monitoring at pharmacy but now stressed that my BP is high so still seems to register as high. Are there some steps I should be doing to help reduce this before next visit to further discuss with my Dr.?
