Could spending the holidays with your in-laws have a negative effect on your health, specifically your good gut bacteria?
The Doctors discuss a new study, which found people who spent the holidays with their in-laws had possibly harmful changes in their gut bacteria. The study found that these changes can be linked to chronic stress and depression.
The study theorizes that the presence of one's in-laws can lead to stress which causes good bacteria levels to drop. Conversely, people who spent holiday time with their own family had higher levels of this important good gut bacteria.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork shares his takeaway from this possibly concerning holiday-related study, saying, "We're trying to create the perfect holiday, and that in it of itself, is stressful... let's give ourselves a break. Let's not let stress ruin the holidays."
Are you already feeling stressed out by the festive season or concerned your holiday might be less than joyful? Get The Doctors tips on ways you can de-stress and make the most of the holiday season.
