(Part 2 of a 5 part series on Stress and the Adrenals)
Yesterday I talked about stress and the affect it has on your adrenal glands. Today I would like to reiterate that everyone has stress. The effect on the body of stress is directly related to how you perceive your stress. If the brain gets a message that you are in danger, it will appropriately send the correct cocktail of hormones down to the rest of the endocrine system to activate the fight or flight response. A prolonged fight or flight response message will eventually create problems in the body. However, there are some things you can work on starting today that will help you recover from this abnormal irritability, weight gain, PMS, sleeplessness, brain fog, joint pain, diminished immune system, and food cravings you might be suffering from.
