Kit | Stressed & Wired

JOINCIRCLES

R 0.00

We've curated every product in our I DO | Nutrition shop based on their nutrigenomic properties and leading manufacturing standards. Nutrigenomics is the study of food and nutrients as one of the most important environmental modifiers of gene expression. A personalised protocol based on your unique DNA, biochemistry and symptoms can help you create optimal wellness and prevent many chronic lifestyle-related diseases. This is called 'personalised scientific wellness'.

Our Stressed & Wired Kit is based on guidelines by experts for times when you feel 'stressed and wired'. 

Subjecting our nervous systems to constant stimulation from sounds, sights, lights, information from our 24/7 hyper-connectivity, we can be stressed and wired without realizing it – with a heightened, jangly state feeling like our ‘normal’.

Ultimately this is exhausting and if it’s not addressed with lifestyle measures, a 'wired suit' can quickly turn to a 'tired' one (described below) and symptoms can take longer to recover from

Symptoms and signs:

  • Being on ‘constant alert’
  • Quick reactions to stressful situations
  • Little relaxation time or an inability to relax
  • Feeling the need to constantly ‘do’ long-term life demands and/or emotional stressors
  • Feeling less ‘able to cope’ mood swings, irritability, thin on patience
  • Light, sound or crowd-sensitive

Lifestyle choices

1. Let go a bit 

If you are used to ignoring your body’s signals of tiredness and stress, it’s time to start listening to your body’s need for continual rest and recovery. 

Take breaks, sleep more, slow down, start the day mindfully and step away from the need to ‘do’ as much as possible.

2. Walk outside 

This naturally moves stresses through your body without adding to its load. Moving as we were designed to do helps us relax shoulders and reset breath patterns that stress can make shallow and tense; especially if we walk in greenery.

3. Take magnesium (or eat foods rich in it) 

Our ability to calm and regulate mood relies on the mineral magnesium and stress uses it up fast. 

Deficiencies can show as anxiety, insomnia, headaches, muscle cramps, depression, fatigue, panic attacks, IBS and blood-sugar issues. 

The best food sources are green, leafy vegetables, nuts, seeds, fish, carrots, sweet potato, avocado, cauliflower, tahini, parsley, traditionally prepared soy, lentils. 

You can also supplement 300mg of magnesium with dinner.

More info

Prolonged stress leads to a slow upregulation in the biological stress response which, if not addressed, leads to eventual exhaustion of system reserves. Acting to limit the physiological and metabolic consequences of stress helps to keep systems in balance and prevent the accumulating consequences of stress.
