Stress, a physical or mental response to a negative personal event, causes an elevation in hormone output (cortisol, adrenaline, noradrenaline), suppresses immune system function, speeds up the aging process, contributes to infertility, reduces wound healing, increases your risk of developing metabolic syndrome, and causes a heightened level of visceral fat.
But whenever this clever system of fight or flight is overwhelmed by modern day life situations, the sympathetic nervous system, which is in charge of mediating hormonal and neuronal responses, becomes overly excited causing cortisol imbalances, excessive magnesium production in the urine, and excessive inflammation.
While it’s necessary to take immediate measures to remove the toxic culprit(s) from your daily routine, keeping an accurate exposure history is the first step in assessing the overall toxic load. With so many types of jobs, habits, hobbies, and chronic trigger points, analysis can confirm patterns, increase awareness, and improve diagnosis. Along with a lengthy set of personalized questions, a comprehensive elimination treatment plan can help prevent disease, illness, and injury in the body.
