I have had plenty of conversations with people about stress.
And, they usually go like this...
Me: "The exams I do analyze how much stress we are dealing with and how our body deals with it."
Friendly Person "Haha, Well I think I would break your machine! I have too much for it to measure!"
(Almost) Every. Single. Time.
Which is why I am releasing a workshop on stress later this week.
I know, it's a joke. But I get a little worried sometimes because it is becoming an extremely common joke.
Our health, your health, is not supposed to be a joke.
I don't mind hearing that joke over and over.
What I do mind is getting the impression that nothing can be done about it.
Because that is not true.
Stress is a good thing, until too much of a good thing becomes a very, very bad thing.
Excessive stress keeps hormones like cortisol in our system for long periods of time. Here is an excerpt talking about what happens with excessive cortisol:
“Sustained high cortisol levels destroy healthy muscle and bone, slow down healing and normal cell regeneration, co-opt biochemicals needed to make other vital hormones, impair digestion, metabolism and mental function, interfere with healthy endocrine function; and weaken your immune system.”
Chronic stress can lead to serious issues. And this is only one example.
Which is why it is always a good idea to deal with it as soon as possible.
How to we find it?
How do we fix it?
How does it get better?
These are answers that will be found in our "Stressed" workshop.
So stay tuned as we roll out information that you shouldn't miss.
