Society has made it normal and acceptable to be stressed…
But really it is not OK!
Stress is a conditioned way of reacting to situations that is unnecessary, unhelpful and negatively impacts our health.
Chronic stress is making us sick:
- Stress is the basic cause of 60% of all human illness and disease – ¾ of all doctors visits are for stress-related ailments.
- Stress increases the hormones cortisol and insulin in our blood which leads to weight gain, especially the visceral fat found around our abdominal organs.
- Stress – and visceral fat – is also linked to many chronic diseases including heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes and cancer
- Stress leads to accelerated cellular aging
