It's not new news that constant stress can cause you serious health issues.
Whether you want it to or not, your body reacts immediately to stress in order to protect against threats.
However, in today's world, there are so many insistent stress factors: a huge project at your job, an argument with a partner, or just struggling to make ends meet can cause you to feel overwhelmed, tense, and stressed.
There's a good chance you feel like you're constantly stressed, which causes your body to constantly feel under attack.
This can result in very real physical and mental health issues such as high blood pressure and sugar levels, digestion problems, heart disease, anxiety and depression... to name just a few.
You might think you're fine because you've visited your primary physician and they've found your cortisol levels to be within an average range.
Newsflash: you don't need a doctor to tell you that something isn't right within your body.
Dr. Holly and Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum discuss what happens when your cortisol levels spike too often, as well as what you can do to help reduce the effects of stress on your health and wellness.
