A local dietitian spoke with residents at the Norwalk Public Library on eliminating foods and habits that cause stress. The event, sponsored by KMAR Educational Services, Inc, brought holistic nurse Dr. Constance Green to the table to discuss healthy ways to eliminate stress through food and stress management techniques.  

"We have both a physiological-biochemical atmosphere in ourselves and what happens is, we're producing hormones that actually accelerate the aging process and the more we eat, the more we eat of the things that we shouldn't eat that also imposes additional stresses and especially the emotional stresses of the holidays." 

She says some stress busting foods include anything from salmon, black tea, avocado, vegetable sprouts, oranges, to comfort foods like oats and milk.  

"Not a lot of anything, something like having a quarter cup of cooked rolled oats, and a little almond milk and a slice of apple before you go to bed and maybe a rolled up piece of turkey raises serotonin levels and probably will help you sleep, some spinach, some oranges, eating the pith is important."  

She tells us one out of four people have stress related diseases, which can quickly become fatal if not prevented. 

"We can die from it," said Greene. "Sixty to eighty percent of people walking into their doctor's offices the reason is it started because of a stress relationship."
