According to the American Institute of Stress, stress plays a major factor in the way that we live physically and mentally.  In fact, stress has been known to be linked to depression, anxiety, heart attacks, stroke, hypertension, common cold, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, rashes, hives, ulcers, insomnia, and more.  Stress is impacting the lives of many people across the world, and stress is causing many people to give up when they should keep moving.  When stressed physically or psychologically the body suddenly shifts its energy resources to fighting off the perceived threat.  The nervous system responds by increasing your heart beat, raises blood pressure, changes digestive process, and boosts glucose levels.  As well, the muscular system is affected by stress, and it responds by tensing up your muscles causing you to get headaches and migraines.  The respiratory system shifts the breathing patterns of individuals when they are stressed causing them to breathe harder bringing on panic attacks and hyperventilation.  The cardiovascular system can be deeply impacted by stress potentially causing heart attacks.  When the body is stress, the body sends signals to brain causing the brain to overcompensate as result it increases the stress hormones in the body to produce more sugar hormones such as glucose.  Stress can cause you to eat more or less than you usually do causing acid reflux, nausea, irritable bowels, etc.  Excess amount of chemicals such as cortisol produced under stress can cause impotence or a low sex drive.  Join Us Today!
