We can’t rely on punishing popular health practices to offer us the gentle healing we need.
Dr. Stephanie Zgraggen is a chiropractor and a nutritionist who focuses on the clinical nutrition side of her practice and helps women heal naturally.
Many women suffer from a variety of health issues and can’t get the help they need from standardized healthcare practices or commercialized products. Extreme dieting, intense training, fasting, and pills can be more detrimental to the body than helpful, but self-care practices that reduce stress and increase your positive mindset can do wonders.
If you are having trouble making progress on your self-care journey, a certified nutritionist may be able to help you discover the root cause of your problems and put you on the path to success. Getting healthy isn’t a quick-fix, so stay positive and research the kind and gentle help that you need.
