Welcome to this week’s episode on stress management! What an important topic especially in the time of COVID-19 when we are all feeling so incredibly stressed in different ways. In this week’s episode, I chat with Dr. Bindiya Gandhi about chronic stress management. She says she’s always known that she wanted to practice more than a traditional medicine practice. She became yoga and Reiki certified in medical school and started learning about integrative medicine while in medical school. After completion of her family practice residency, she completed her integrative medicine and functional medicine fellowships.
During residency, she talks about dealing with stress and the ability to heal herself through her knowledge of integrative and functional medicine. She discusses how chronic stress can be a gateway to other chronic medical conditions, notably decreasing your immune system. How do we react to stress in a positive way? How do we manifest stress in our lives?
Make sure you tune in and listen to get some tips!
