‘Tis the Season… for Holiday Stress, Overindulgence & Flu

Old Meds, New Warnings - Are You at Risk?

In This Issue:


Holiday Activities Have You Stressed?

I really don’t understand it -- how can shopping, eating, gifts, and having family-time turn into insurmountable, all-consuming, strength-sucking stress?

Most of us get a little pleasure out of at least one of these activities, so the holidays really shouldn’t be that bad. However, for a lot of people across the country and around the world, holiday fun turns to holiday stress in the blink of an eye.

Studies show that more than 37% of Americans experience increased stress levels during the holidays. Finances (and shopping) are indicated as the number one cause of stress, with spending time with family, over-indulging, and overworking following closely behind.

Suffering from loneliness and recalling sad memories during the holidays also play a considerable role in seasonal depression and anxiety, therefore leading to increased stress and decreased health.

One major factor that contributes to stress is over-indulging. The average American consumes between 5,000-6,000 calories and a whopping 229 grams of fat on Thanksgiving Day alone.

We also increase our intake of calories from beverages by 94 percent during the holidays. With an average weight gain of five pounds (although studies suggest this could be less) these holiday treats are increasing the risk of heart attack, diabetes, and obesity.

It seems as though there’s a sneak attack behind every corner during this time of year. Even if you avoid excessive eating and attempt to reduce your stress levels, the chances of getting the flu or a cold as winter approaches increase significantly.

Does Holiday Depression have you Singing the Blues?

Do the words “I want, I need, buy me, get me” sound familiar? For children, the holidays are a time of leisure and joy that evoke family gatherings, elaborately gift-wrapped presents, and winter vacation.

Unfortunately for many of us, the holiday season often brings with it the scary gifts of holiday stress and depression. Experts agree -- the holiday season evokes more depressed or anxious feelings then any other time of the year.

Don’t Let Illness Spoil the Joys of Your Holiday Season

As the holidays are upon us and stress levels are rising, so are the chances of contracting a cold or virus. Increased stressors related to the holidays, amplified by added exposure to illness caused by seasonal travel, as well as being pulled in many directions with added celebration obligations -- can all lead to a temporary weakening of the immune system.

Children are also more susceptible to illness this time of year, as changes in weather, daily schedules, and holiday hassles can take their toll on kids as well. In addition, children’s immune systems are still developing, also making staying healthy a bigger obstacle than adults with fully-functioning systems.

"Hello, My boyfriend has been experiencing crippling anxiety which worsens during the holidays and "dark" seasons (SAD)- this year [it] has been terrible. He does not sleep well, wakes up in the morning sweating and shaking, and has panic attacks when in situations with many people, even his family - heart racing, shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, dizziness. He's been trying several antidepressants through his doctor but they affect his appetite and libido, and often just don't seem to help much. Any suggestions? " – Alicia


Hi Tatiana,

We can highly recommend a combination of our MindSoothe and PureCalm remedies.

MindSoothe is our 100% herbal alternative to the prescription SSRI and anti-depressant drugs and is very effective for the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders, including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias and OCD. Clinical research has demonstrated that the ingredients used in Mindsoothe are at least as effective as the major anti-depressant drugs, without the same risk of side effects.

"I have a 3 year old and a baby who just turned 1. After all the recalls and safety issues about kid’s cold meds I am looking for a safe alternative. I really don't like to give them anything in the 1st place but sometimes they need a little relief to sleep or just get through. Since my 3 year old is in preschool he seemed to bring home everything last year and we were all sick especially the baby for a lot of the winter. Could you recommend anything that I could use for them when they have a cold or are congested?" –Allison


Hi Allison,

We do have an excellent product for children who are congested called Sniffly Sprinkles:

Use Sniffly Sprinkles to:

  • Keep little noses clear
  • Assist in maintaining open airways and easy breathing
  • Help your child to be comfortable and relaxed
  • Promote a healthy chest
  • Promote sound and healthy sleep

The best solution to your problem is, of course, to avoid letting your children contract these infections in the first place. The best way to do this is to strengthen their immune systems. You can consider the following to help your kids.
