Mental Stress and Gluten with Maureen Kane, PLLC In this day and age, stress and worry seem to be running rampant. Having Celiac makes us even more at risk because we can have an anxiety physiologic response when we get glutened. We all know too much stress is unhealthy, but we don't all know how to manage it. We also don't have lives that allow us to go to the spa or exercise as much as we need to. Come and learn skills you can use at home, work, and school to lower your stress and calm your worries. Skills will include understanding of how the brain creates and releases stress, breathing and mindfulness, and how to notice and question thoughts that make things worse or better. www.maureenkanecounseling.com - THIS presentation will be rescheduled in Spring meeting schedule.
