Stress harms the body

Everyone knows stress harms the body but not many know how.

Under stress the body turns into an alarm mode to respond quickly to its threat. It’s our body’s survival mechanism.

The heart rate and blood pressure increase, pupils dilate, blood sugar level increases, muscles tense up, and digestion & immune system shut down to focus on emergency functions.

However what if the body happened to stay in an alarm mode too long?

 

It’s like driving a car at 100 miles per hour for years without making a single stop. After awhile parts would begin to fall out.

We need to know how to manage stress by slowing down, taking breaks, and relaxing after going through stressful events.

Chiropractic is one great way to help the body be in a state of ease and deal with stress better.
