We are learning ever more about stress and the toll it takes on our skin, our general health, our quality of life, and our looks. Much talent and many resources at NYDG and in modern medicine in general are devoted to studying stress and determining how to control and reduce it. At NYDG we approach the challenge of stress-busting, so as not to exacerbate the problem (which may be the risk with some drug treatments). We recommend acupuncture, an FDA-proven stress reducer, and therapeutic massage. We also encourage patients to seek nutritional counseling, as a strong, healthy diet can greatly contribute to a steady sense of well-being. And we have many soothing skin treatments that both pamper and nourish skin, making you look refreshed and feel renewed. If you are experiencing stress, one place to start is a consultation with NYDG’s Doctor of Internal Medicine. Or, contact our front desk to reserve time with our acupuncturist or nutritionist.
