It is fair to say that everyone experiences stress in their lives.
Stress is our reaction to events within and around us that exceed our ability to cope or adapt. Your health is affected because stress harms an individual’s homeostasis, leading to an imbalance that can affect your hormone levels. Symptoms that are indicators of poor hormone levels include: exhaustion, depression, weight gain and loss, headaches, poor sleep patterns, heavy periods, infertility, hair loss, low sex drive, anxiety, digestive problems and mood swings
Luckily, our bodies are genetically determined to help us respond to stressful events and it can recover naturally and quickly if your general heath is good.
