Ask The Blood Detective - Stress Proof Your Body

April 2, 2021

Stress proof your body contains many important methods to both identify and manage different types of stress in your life. Dr. Wald explores the "stress-response" and how at one level it is essential for survival, but when extreme and maintained, can lead to deadly health consequences. Dr. Wald says, "chronic stress, both physical and mental, will affect hormones, cause inflammation and tissue destruction. Our need for certain nutrition from foods and nutritional supplements increase and stress continues. The way to "beat stress", meaning having it work for you as opposed to against you, is to identify your stress triggers, "re-frame" life events and learn effective coping strategies both mental and nutritional". Hormones like cortisol, adrenalin, insulin, glucagon, thyroid hormones and others are all activated, more or less, during our stress response. Also, we are not always consciously aware that stress is "controlling us" so we see life as "stressful" rather than recognizing our "internal filter" as it determines our perceptions and often our emotional reactions.
