The toll that stress can take on the body is limitless: it causes muscular tension, your heart is made to work harder, you burn excess energy unnecessarily, get fatigued, depressed, your immunity lowers and you can become more prone to infections and diseases.
Adrenalin is a stress hormone, also known as ‘The Fight or Flight’ hormone. It helps to prepare the body for increased exertion, mentally and physically, but research has shown long term increased levels of this chemical can be detrimental to your whole wellbeing.
Sometimes the stress cannot be avoided, so the only alternative is to deal with the effects of stress. Treatments and therapies help to restore vitality, release tension and reduce the overworking of the body’s systems.
Although ideally eradicating the causes of the stress completely from our lives is the best form of therapy, Holistic treatments are largely the best way by far to help cope with these symptoms.
