Job demands, shaky relationships, illness and financial concerns can all cause a great deal of stress. And stress can cause or worsen many types of health conditions. If you struggle to manage your stress levels, ELM Medicine can help.

A specialist in integrative medicine, Dr. Mukherji has helped many patients reduce their stress levels through counselling, proper nutrition and behavioural changes. If you're interested in joining a stress reduction program in Hamilton, read on to learn more.

 

Why Is Stress Management Important?

Stress impacts you both physically and psychologically. You're probably familiar with some of the most common symptoms of stress, such as fatigue, nausea, irritability and muscle tension. But did you know that long-term stress can actually make you sick? In some cases, high- stress levels over prolonged periods of time can lead to cardiovascular issues, gastrointestinal problems, depression and anxiety.
