We live in an age of constant stress and strain physically, mentally, and emotionally. We are often nutritionally depleted and without the support we need to get re-balanced. The standard solution currently is to be put on medication that promises to blunt our response and help us feel calm while offering no real lasting solutions. If you are looking for an alternative way with lasting solutions Centered on Wellness can help.
Stress is the body’s reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses. While some stress is a normal part of life, it should not become debilitating. When we are faced with stress our bodies have what is known as a “flight or fight” response. For some people, their body remains in this “flight or fight” state constantly causing a lot of strain to the body. Our bodies respond to stress in different ways.
