Your fight/flight response is an adaptive survival energy that gets triggered whenever you’re threatened or stressed. If you get stressed out a lot, that means your stress response is probably working too hard. This is something you have to do something about if you are to maintain or regain wellness. Why? Simply because overactive and chronic stress response has been linked to a variety of biological and mental health issues including cardiovascular dysfunction, digestive issues, hypertension, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, anxiety, depression, etc.
By turning on your stress response for too long without viable outlets for turning it off, the stress chemicals that are overproduced in the process can wreck a havoc within your neurological and visceral states. In this clip, I explain the link between stress, cardiovascular disease (such as heart disease or stroke), functional bowel syndrome (such as IBS) and addictions. I also share how you can turn off your stress response daily and reduce your overall risk factors.
