Anxiety is a feeling of fear, worry, or unease.
Both, fear and anxiety produce a stress response, that can impact our mental and physical well being. Fear weakens our immune system. This in turn can cause increased susceptibility to diseases and viruses, amongst other problems such as ulcers and gastrointestinal problems to name a few.
Learning to manage our heightened emotions during these times plays a critical part in our well-being along with following the precautions necessary to stay healthy including washing hands often with soap and water, avoiding large crowds, wearing masks as needed.
Along with chiropractic care, mindful relaxation can help build your overall immune system response.
One of our new technologies at Bay City, Biosound Therapy, invokes the relaxation response, which has a physiological impact that helps you down-regulate your stress response and work more effectively with fear and anxiety. Over time, you will develop an ability to shift into a more relaxed state in the midst of stressful situations.
Taking good care of your physical and mental health is very important.
