Despite the differing stresses in our lives the bodys reaction to stress is universal. A fight or flight response is triggered by the adrenal glands releasing adrenaline into the bloodstream, causing the heart to beat faster, dilation of the respiratory passages and raised blood pressure. Digestion is interrupted as blood flows to the muscles and blood sugar increases to provide energy to fight or flee. When stress becomes chronic and inescapable on a daily basis, our body's constant reactions to stress begin to take their toll, resulting in the physical and mental symptoms of stress such as exhaustion, nervous disorders, and lowered immune function.A wide range of disorders can often be attributed to stress, such as colds and flus, allergies, menstrual cycle irregularities, asthma, eczema and other skin conditions.
