Let’s talk about stress and how to take care of your body during chronic stress.

Stress can cause deficiencies—these deficiencies can then alter your ability to react to and recover from stress.

Chronic stress can be very dangerous to your health. Too much stress can lead to:
• Ulcers
• Heart attack
• Osteoporosis
• High blood pressure
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Poor immunity

Deficiencies caused by stress can include:
1. Magnesium
2. Zinc
3. Thiamine (vitamin B1)
4. Potassium
5. Vitamin B5
6. Amino acids
7. Calcium
8. Vitamin D
9. Vitamin C

When you go through stress, it’s easy to reach for junk foods. But it’s crucial you avoid sweets and junk food, even when you’re stressed. It’s also important to avoid foods high in sodium when you’re feeling stressed.

The more stress you go through, the healthier you need to eat. Consuming red meat and a big leafy green salad would be a great meal to consume when you go through stress.

An HRV (heart rate variability) device is a fantastic tool to help you measure your stress and how you respond to stress. This device can also help you better understand what type of exercise and nutrition your body needs at different times.

The best ways to take care of your body during stress:
• Stick to a very healthy diet (Healthy Keto®)
• Get quality sleep
• Exercise

  1. Hello Dr Berg, thank goodness we have you to educate us. All your videos have really helped me with improving my health. Thank you so very much for all your hard work!!

    • Thank you Dr. Berg for your so presious videos on every day on different content of health condition I am watching your videos from 2020 When I got diabetes & corona both together
      After searching solution for better health I found you and get rid of anxiety stress choose what the right food for health. Thanks again from India

  2. I’m a social worker and my job is very stressful. I will practice what you teach Dr. Berg because I need it so bad. Thanks for your guidance.

  3. My opinion that brings on major stress would be the 3 biggest stressful situations to be in; #1 is the death of a loved one. #2 Financially to be able to pay our bills and have a roof over our heads. #3 Eating and drinking an unhealthy diet.

    • #1 for me is watching a child deal with dialysis…being a caregiver is extremely hard on people no matter what age the disabled person is 😢 Leaning on God is very helpful.

    • The same time my pet 19 years was at the end of kidney and liver disease the signs got worse I got very sick aswell stpmach recovered but not everything for last 3 months at least I never been this bad before am also alot skinnier it’s definitely true

    • I would add one – being lonely. Even though we might feel good with ourselves only, our body an mind will seek for another person. I don’t mean friends – but rather deeper relationship. Without it, we can feel tired and stressed to find someone urgently. That was and partially still is my case.

  4. Very timely. My dental hygenist recommended a blood test due to bleeding gums when she cleaned my teeth – it wasn’t gum disease. She asked if I was stressed and mentioned Vit D difficiency and Cortesol. Have yet to have the blood test. The dizziness when standing up quickly is something I also experience – although I don’t faint. I excerise 2-3 times a week and have a 7-8 hours sleep a night (i use Fitbit). Anwyay a great video and I will action the recommendations.

    • What about vitamin C deficiency? More stress puts a demand on vitamin C levels. Low C causes scurvy type symptoms, which manifests in one aspect as gums that bleed

    • You have a great dental staff. Perhaps a very high dose [50k+ iu] would minimize the issue. I brush w 🥥 oil & bleed very little now

    • Yes vitamin C also my functional medicine Dr. Always says AC/DC like the band… vitamins A, C, D and more C 😊

    • Great 👍 If you type words like gums issues, on stress relief, on symptoms of vitamin d deficiency, on dizziness when standing up, ect, in the search 🔎 area of this channel, you will find videos Dr Berg made to help with these situations.

  5. Heavy stress also causes acne outbreak, bad looking skin, bloating, indigestion, bleeding gums and hair loss. Hate that! Thank you, Dr. Berg for the information. 😊

  6. Thanks doctor for these interlinked piece of information. I am greatful to having heard your whole video on stress and what a vicious cycle it creates.

  7. Thank you! I gotta say! The kefir was the perfect alternative to the yogurt. It is better, it does provide the probiotic and so it does a lot to help with stress!

    I resisted it, but I’m glad I’ve started to use it.

    Thank you!

  8. Hey Dr. Berg! Could you talk more about the stress body type and how to lose weight and body recomposition? I understand that this is the hardest time to lose weight because of the stress. If there’s anything substantial enough to say on this topic, I would greatly appreciate a video on that. Thanks! 🙏🏾 😊

    • Absolutely. If you type words like adrenal body type, stress relief and his videos on stress in general and weight loss plateau/ breakthroughs in the search 🔎 area of this channel, you will find videos Dr Berg made to help with these situations.

  9. Goodmorning Doctor Berg.. for me I try hard not to stress, when I’m thinking on my bills or other things I try not to overthink, I try my best to control it, whenever stress control you that means you’re in trouble, have a wonderful stress free day everyone 💕💕💕💕

  10. I had plenty of stress after I lost my wife unexpectedly last year while searching of answers, I came crossed your videos that just changed my life, I got on healthy Keto IF taking B1 Ashwagandha you are saving lives in real time. Thank you Dr Berg God Bless You and your family.

  11. My stress relief from “anxiety tv” started 13 yrs. ago and I try to keep myself motivated to exercise and walk daily. Farming is a stressful occupation, so I can’t just completely get away from stress. I try though! 🌸

  12. This year, my body’s immune system SHUT down after years of stress buildup. I ended up with Diverticulitis, Covid, then hives (from the anitbiotics) and candida. It took months to recover and come to terms with the root cause.

  13. I’m going through a stressful situation now but I’m trying my best to focus on what I eat, I’m following your guidance on eating healthy and exercising. Thank you for all your guidance.

  14. Dr. Berg. I don’t know how, but you made this video for me🙏 everything in this video is me 🙈 and therefore I feel so thankful for the solutions you provide ❤

  15. This is very timely information for me. I have been feeling stressed and I monitor my HRV via my watch. I has been declining for the last several weeks and I am feeling drained. I need to exercise more but I haven’t had much time. I’m working on prioritizing myself but sometimes it’s hard. I find that taking Mg is mandatory for me when I am feeling like this. Thanks

  16. Thank you Dr. Berg for all the time that you spend researching and creating great videos for us to be healthy. It is as if this video was tailored for me!!! Please keep making these amazing and priceless videos.
