Product Recommendations for Stress Relief and Better Sleep

sleep stress

Life in Hong Kong for most people is stressful. The fast pace of living, frequent international travel, working and playing can take it’s toll. Add in air and noise pollution and an over crowded city and it’s no wonder we’re stressed!

Too much stress can lead to fatigue, tension, and poor sleep. Prolonged stress could eventually lead to anxiety, depression, and other lasting disease such as heart attacks.

IMI's naturopathic practitioners have thoroughly researched and carefully selected high quality supplements from the leading suppliers around the world. Our team recommends these safe and effective products to people who want to manage a healthy stress level and stay in their peak in productivity and performance.

While these products can be very helpful, however, if you are experiencing prolonged stress, chronic insomnia, anxiety or depression, we suggest you to talk to our health advisor, who can direct you to the right practitioner for an individualised plan.
