Sugar suppresses anger. If you’ve felt impotent to change your world, find resonant work, educate your kids at home, the links to the articles below can be of help. This month we’re discussing coping strategies for this lockdown and also the inherent emotions that cause one to crave sugar. Lots of patients we serve have been expressing frustration at this quarantine and the limitations that seem to be imposed endlessly on us and our innate need for liberty.
A couple of weeks ago, we did a webinar about how to cope in these unprecedented times to one hundred of our closest friends, colleagues and Facebook followers. We talked about strategies for coping with this challenging loss of our freedoms, especially knowing that the threat of the virus has passed.
We spoke about tried and true nutritional protocols and what strategies you can use to mitigate your own suffering and engenderment of symptoms. Our hope is that by sharing it with you, you’ll also derive some helpful coping strategies.

Our hope is that you and your family are feeling equipped, now, to bolster your immune system and ride out the challenges that continue to present along the way. Someone said to me recently that the best defense against these suppressive forces is to be as healthy as you possibly can be. In a way, it is the most righteous arsenal you possess.
