Stress: The Silent Assassin by Dr. Milton Bastidas
STRESS, THE SILENT ASSASSIN: There are a great deal of physiological changes that occur when we are stressed out which we don’t feel but are very detrimental to our well-being. You see, our body is designed to deal with stress on a temporary basis as when we are confronted with danger and need to fight or run. Once the danger is dealt with our body then relaxes and recovers but not so true when our body perceives itself as being in danger continually and whenstress is present all day. The consequences of prolonged stress can include muscular tension, headaches, insomnia, digestive issues, hormonal imbalance, inability to concentrate, foggy brain, chronic fatigue, decreased libido, and frequent sickness to name a few. Don’t let this silent assassin on the loose and take control of your well-being.
