CT - New Haven County (SW) Chapter

Event: Learning How to Cope Better with Stress

February 19, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

On February 19 at 6:30 p.m., join Dr. Loren Hager and Holistic Moms Network’s (HMN) New Haven County chapter to discuss stress in its many forms, what it’s doing to your body and health, and natural ways to handle it. You will also learn a meditation and breathing technique to use at home.

Stress is something everybody feels. We experience it in our own unique way, but our bodies react regardless. Stress comes in many forms, whether it is chemical, physical or emotional. Prolonged reactions to stress can cause detrimental effects in our bodies. Some symptoms of long-term stress include headaches, fatigue, insomnia, moodiness/irritability, sinus problems, neck pain, digestive disorders, increased symptoms of PMS, immune and blood sugar issues, and more. Learning how to manage your stress in sustainable and natural ways is one way to avoid chronic illness caused by stress.

Dr. Hager is a chiropractic physician, applied clinical nutritionist and a 500-hour certified vinyasa yoga teacher. She focuses on the whole patient to help them find better health and vitality. Dr. Hager works with people who struggle with hormonal issues, fatigue, sleep problems, weight issues, fertility and sex-drive issues, as well as other chronic health problems to find relief and better health.
