Life can get overwhelming, but did you know it can have a big impact on your body?
I've come across some eye-opening information about how chronic stress impacts your daily health.
Well, it can trigger a cascade of reactions in your body that will lead to serious health issues researchers have found.
In this article, I'm going to explore how Chronic STRESS affects us all and what you can do about it. It's time to take control and work towards a healthier you! Ready? Lets Go!
I recently came across this interesting study in The National Library Of Medicine, titled: Chronic Stress Promotes Cancer Development. <=== View it here. To give you an overview it states that when stress becomes a chronic condition, it sets off a chain reaction in our bodies, which then lead to immune disorders and inflammation.
So, if you have pain... it's pretty clear that this is something you should be taking seriously. What's even more concerning is the link between excessive stress hormones and the development of cancer! In the study you can see how excessive stress hormones can cause DNA damage, hinder your body's ability to fight cancer cells, and even encourage tumor growth.
It's a stark reminder of just how influential stress can be on our health.
But there's hope!
The studies are showing how individual personality will influence how daily stress affects your neuroendocrine and immune functions.
This is something many of the Prophets, Yogi's, Saints, and Sages have been echoing to us from the beginning. So, you're probably looking to take active steps to manage your stress levels. Right?
Supportive stress therapies (ie: daily meditation, weekly massage, light exercise, & breathing techniques) are a massive force in stress management.
