Stress- We Are In An Epidemic
Never before has our community, and society in general, experienced so much chronic disease and STRESS related illness. We all know what STRESS is and we wouldn’t argue that we are under lot of it in the “ pressure cooker” world we live in. But, what most doesn’t know is how stress affects our bodies.
Modern day STRESS has catapulted us into the early stages of the worst epidemic of all time: Stress overload. In reality, all forms of stress are “ brain stress” causing what keeps us in over drive and fight or flight.
Fight or flight in 30 minute bursts will and can save your life. But, long term presence of this state (which is how most of us live our life continuously) turns off (to name a few) our reproductive system, immune system and digestive system. Think of someone whom is stressed out may follow this picture: someone who is always sick, run down, fatigued ,bags under eye, gaining weight, constipated. That is what the continual presence of cortisol and epinephrine do to your body.
The better and faster you can get your body to deal with, and process, stress the less the fight or flight mechanism will work against you.
