A little bit of stress is normal and actually even healthy. But too much stress can cause wear and tear on your body... often beyond repair.
In fact, chronic stress can lead to hypertension, immune suppression, insulin resistance and more.
According to the American Institute of Stress, 75-90% of all visits to primary care physicians are due to stress-related problems.
Many doctors treat these problems with medications like Zoloft or Prozac; but this sort of treatment often only masks the problem.
Fortunately there are natural methods you can utilize to reduce the stress in your life, as well as protect your body from the damage it can do.
Yoga, adaptogens like rhodiola, adrenal support and targeted nutritional supplementation can all be very effective.
