Holiday Anxiety Hey friends, the holidays are coming, and so is the holiday anxiety for many. If you missed last week, I talked about all the food and nutrition stuffs and gave you 3 steps to banishing the holiday cravings + guilt + overwhelm that comes with it. Despite the joyous nature of the season, often we are overindulging in food and alcohol, overindulging in expectations and what others demand of us, overstressed, and just plain worn out. This serves to significantly increase our inflammation and decrease our health and wellness. It’s the same for all but scales up when you are living with a chronic illness or autoimmune disease. So in today’s episode, we are going to talk about the holidays the energetic and emotional turmoil, summing it all up in holiday anxiety.

If you missed last week, I talked about all the food and nutrition stuffs and gave you 3 steps to banishing the holiday cravings + guilt + overwhelm that comes with it. Despite the joyous nature of the season, often we are overindulging in food and alcohol, overindulging in expectations and what others demand of us, overstressed, and just plain worn out. This serves to significantly increase our inflammation and decrease our health and wellness. It’s the same for all but scales up when you are living with a chronic illness or autoimmune disease. So in today’s episode, we are going to talk about the holidays the energetic and emotional turmoil, summing it all up in holiday anxiety. Intro Welcome if this is your first time listening  - I’m Audrey Christie - I’m a functional and integrative nurse nutritionist and energy medicine practitioner. I help women start their very own Autoimmune Revolution so you can stop chasing symptoms and learn how to heal your body from autoimmune disease. If you are inundated with food and drinks from Mid-November through New Years and maybe on into the Superbowl and you combine it with stress, anxiety, emotional ties to the food AND then the family stuffs and budget stuffs that happens - you have a big recipe for big inflammation and effects that last long after the holiday joys wear off. Before we get too far into this, I want you to know for yourself or for a loved one that might be listening or you might be thinking of... the information that I'm going to give today is absolutely not meant to be pill shaming in any way. Pill shaming is toxic and it's time to break down that taboo in society. Working through anxiety is hard enough oh, it makes it even harder around the holidays, and then adding pill shaming and stigma creates an even more difficult situation. There's a lot of misinformation out there about antidepressants and even antipsychotic drugs. Yes, they can do a lot of damage to the body but sometimes people require that extra bit of help to enable them to live a normal and happy life. The strategies were going to talk about in this episode are generally enough for people to reduce their dependence on medication sometimes even eliminated, but not always. Every human deserves a life neither ruled by stress or fear or crushed by depression and anxiety.
