Texas Department of State Health Services

Our wellness commentator, Dr. Velvete Womack, says there are close connections between stress and nutrition.  "The better nourished you are, the better able you are to cope with stress.  It is well know that changes take place in the levels of circulating hormones when stress occurs," says an article discussed in this conversation.  Dr. Womack is the owner of Balanced Newtrition in Rockwall.
