Stress - The number 1 cause of chronic disease!

Stress is a normal part of life. However, we are meant to deal with a stressful situation as a temporary thing, whereby the body prepares us for survival - Fight or Flight! When the situation is resolved, your body systems go back to normal.

Three distinct things have happened in modern day society to change this process.

One is that our stressors don't go away, as with the animal kingdom or cavemen, whereby a threatening situation occurs, you deal with it, and it's gone (i.e. you see a lion). The body remains in Fight or Flight mode and normal body functions don't resume properly, causing chronic disease.

The second is that when fight or flight occurred in those situations, one burned a lot of energy during the fight or flight mode, then replenished by the body signalling hunger. Today's stressors don't burn calories, but we still eat, thus weight gain and many other health problems begin! Thirdly, being under constant stress without managing it, causes us to make other unhealthy food and lifestyle decisions, such as eating junk food, especially sugary snacks, drinking alcohol, smoking, and more.

Dr. Taylor White will discuss all about what stress does to your body, how it manifests itself in insomnia, anxiety, bad health decisions, and finally chronic diseases. Get off the vicious cycle and regain control over your stress and health in 2018! Learn how with lifestyle changes, as well as important vitamins and minerals, through food choices and supplementation, that can help keep you balanced.

Come learn with Dr. Taylor White about another great topic to help you reach optimal health!
