Superwoman Syndrome: Stop the Stress
According to research out of Yale’s Interdisciplinary Stress Center, both men and women experience what’s known as the common stress “fight-or-flight” reaction, but women experience an increased arousal in the sympathetic nervous system.

This results in increased heart rate and an adrenaline rush, which is associated with higher anxiety.

Women also experience stress on more of an emotional level. This can lead to challenging behavior problems, such as not exercising and craving carbohydrates, which in turn contributes to more stress-related illnesses including obesity, heart disease, diabetes and depression.

Although chronic stress is a tough issue for woman to address, it can easily be fixed with small changes.

Listen in as James LaValle, RPh, CCN, joins Dr. Susanne to share tips to ease the daily stress of being a superwoman.
