Available for Interviews: Dr. Alice Fong

Alice Fong, ND, is an integrative naturopathic doctor specializing in stress, integrative medicine, diet & weight loss, and is a business growth consultant for holistic healthcare providers.

What Dr. Alice Fong can say in an interview on
Breaking Free From Stress and Anxiety Naturally:

When your body or mind is stressed, your “sympathetic nervous system” is activated. It is better known as the “fight or flight response.” What happens to our bodies when we’re in this “stress” mode is our heart races, pupils dilate, we sweat, and our blood pressure and cortisol rises. It’s an important system to have to be able to exercise or handle dangerous situations. However, the problem is, if we are ALWAYS in this “stress mode,” it overworks our adrenal glands, which is responsible for the output of the hormone cortisol in our bodies. Eventually the adrenal glands will be depleted over time, which can lead to the brain fog, fatigue, sleep disturbances, weight gain, and it makes us more susceptible to getting sick.

Energy Stealers and How Best to Deal With Them:

In a year plagued with stress and challenges, we need sound rest more than ever to function and lead productive lives. But this seemingly simple activity is problematic for millions of Americans. Why do we feel worse when we wake up, after a long sleep, than we did when we went to bed? It’s a complex story of individual physiology, lifestyle, health, and bad habits that exude in our patterns of behavior. It’s called ‘sleep inertia’ and it’s due to a lack of the brain and body, booting up in the morning. It’s a lack of oxygen in the muscles and brain, which makes you feel sleepy even after having a good 8-hour sleep. But, there are other causes too.
