Stress can cause many different reactions in the human body. Most commonly it can bring on a frequent colds, indigestion, cause aches and pains in the body, and leave you feeling tired (sometimes even depressed).
Stress occurs when we perceive a situation connected to us to be worthy of anxiety. Getting stuck in traffic when your running late is a great example of this. When a stressful situation occurs our body instinctively kicks into “fight or flight” mode, which is a hard-wired reaction to threats on our survival.
This natural response triggers the release of hormones that ensure we can face whatever is causing us anxiety. The problem is that sometimes we are in a constant state of stress which results in the depletion of these hormones and eventually leaves us in a weakened, vulnerable state. Common diagnosis that result are Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), auto-immune conditions and digestive complaints such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and bloat.
Stress happens. Its how we handle it that makes all the difference.
