Learn How to Manage Stress to Aid Digestion on Nov. 7

 
  

The Valley Hospital will host a free community health program, A Lot to Digest, on Wednesday, November 7 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Brandywine Living at Mahwah, 814 Wyckoff Ave., Mahwah. 

We all know that stress can be a lot to digest. No matter the cause, stress and anxiety can take a toll on us both mentally and physically. That’s especially true when it comes to our stomach and digestive system, where stress can cause nausea, indigestion, diarrhea or constipation. In fact, research has shown that our brains and guts are inextricably linked. That’s why stress can such discomfort and exacerbate symptoms of ulcers, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and other conditions. 

While a certain amount of stress is unavoidable, learning to manage stress and relieve tension in a healthy way can be a comfort to our guts and ease symptoms of gastrointestinal conditions. 

Join Gastroenterologist Sita Chokhavatia, M.D., and Health Educator Susan Breithaupt, LCSW, to learn about the roles stress and our emotions play when it comes to our digestive health and take home helpful strategies to deal with stress and anxiety to get relief from pain, discomfort, bloating and more. 

What: A Lot to Digest
