Stress & its toll on you!

Most people take stress very lightly, especially when I bring it up, so sometimes (those of you who are skeptical), I have run salivary cortisol tests to show just how much stress is impacting your endocrine/hormone system.

Take the time to read these two pieces. This series looks promising!

Click on the different body parts to see how stress affects each organ. Stress affects the entire body! That's why I try to practice "big picture medicine". The goal is to change medicine so that we don't give a pill for every symptom. We have to think globally because different parts of the body speak to each other and are inter-related. That's why even the foods you eat can affect your skin or how balancing your gastrointestinal track can have an effect on autoimmune related disorders.

Happy Halloween everyone! Don't eat too many candies! =)

Yours in health,
