Our expert says:
Chronic cortisol production due to stress or even excessive exercise can depress the immune system and have other negative effects on the body, so you may need to consult your medical dr for an anxiolytic to break this vicious cycle. I would also recommend that you take a complete vitamin and mineral supplement like Centrum or Supradyn Forte, a calcium supplement (Caltrate) and salmon oil capsules to boost your omega-3 intake. This diet you are using which cuts out all meat and dairy will deplete you of calcium, iron and vit B12 - so some of your crankiness could be due to deficiencies and even anaemia. Chat to the dr about this possibility. It's good that you are doing yoga because this is an excellent method of relaxing and de-stressing. Use the deep breathing exercises whenever you are stressed. You may find that going for a brisk walk every day for 30 min will also help - it promotes weightloss, improves the mood, counteracts PMS and firms the body.
Hope you can relax
