Stress Causes, Consequences + Expert Natural Care
- We are living in challenging times and it is important to be mindful of what really matters to you. There is no time like the present to start living your true life now. You were destined to live a unique life that no one else can live. You always have choices and consequences of these choices.
I firmly believe that increasing awareness promotes our brain to regenerate and rewire itself. In order to feed new neurons we have to start putting our attention to where we want it and not to be controlled by something external to ourselves.
Stress impacts practically every cell in the body and all our major hormones. Special attention to supporting the adrenals and balancing blood sugar is important.
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Low Thyroid
- Weight Gain
Stress can have many causes, however it’s our decision how we respond to it. Emotions play a huge role in stress and the ability to manage it in a healthy way. Our body’s biography becomes our biology and when our emotions are out of control our body’s become a representation of that. Learning how to live healthier physically, emotionally, and spiritually will help minimize the damage stress can have on us.
- I find detoxification and cleansing to be very supportive of balancing and clearing our liver of all the stress hormones, like cortisol. Cortisol is secreted under times of stress and may remain elevated long after the stress has stopped. Cortisol increases insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome which gives rise to obesity, especially around the abdomen.
Cortisol also slows down the thyroid so metabolism is slowed down. If this continues blood pressure rises, diabetes occurs, cholesterol elevates. Medications for these conditions then compound the problems and so on. This unfortunately is a very common scenario. It doesn’t have to be this way. There are inner wellness solutions that are natural, foundational, and supportive for longevity.
