Are you ready to live? Really live that feeling good life you desire to live? Thank you for joining me on this episode of the Feeling Good Podcast, it’s great to be alive. On this feel good day we are going to talk about the holidays and how it can often feel like “stress time” rather than holiday time. We need to be aware of the dangers of stress in our life and what it can do to us.
We have a special guest in this episode who discusses our adrenal glands and the effect that stress can have on those glands which control, (directly or indirectly), the function of almost every other gland and system in our bodies. If you have ever had stress in your life, I invite you to listen as I talk to our special guest, Dr. Michael Ruscio who is a functional medicine practitioner and a lead researcher in a current IBS study. He is a postdoctoral continued education provider, a doctor of chiropractic, and has conducted many studies with various medical institutions. Dr. Ruscio practices in California and is the host of the Health, Nutritional, and Functional Medicine podcast.
I liked it! Many sleep aids don’t work very well on me. They make me drowsy, but that’s it. This one knocked me right out! I felt a little tired in the morning, very sluggish, but I always feel like that. I was still able to make breakfast and drive to work, so if that is a side effect of the https://www.sleepprointernational.com/products/ambien/ drug, then it isn’t a serious one.
