5 Surprising Ways Stress Affects Health ~ Stress, Anxiety & St John’s Wort

Stress significantly impacts your health, and mostly in negative ways—increasing the risk of heart disease, contributing to weight gain and even causing insomnia and depression.

As if that isn’t bad enough, there are a few surprising health setbacks caused by high levels of stress, such as a weakened immune system in children and even the progression of skin cancers.

Long-term exposure to stress can lead to even more serious health problems. Chronic stress disrupts nearly every system in your body. It can raise blood pressure, suppress the immune system, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, contribute to infertility, and speed up the ageing process.

Long-term stress can even rewire the brain, leaving you more vulnerable to anxiety and depression.

Here are 5 Surprising Ways Stress Affects Your Health . . .

Adrenal fatigue, also known as hypoadrenia, is a dysfunction of the adrenal glands ultimately resulting in diminished production of adrenal hormones which adversely affects your whole physiology. The syndrome is a group of signs and symptoms which people experience when their adrenal glands are exhausted or overworked and become depleted to the point that they are unable to produce adequate supplies of hormones, in particular cortisol.

Stress And Depression At An All Time High Due To Pollution

If you live in a polluted environment, it can be difficult to avoid pollution, and this can lead to what’s known as depression anxiety. How pollution causes depression anxiety is by triggering an immuno-inflammatory reaction, causing inflammation in the brain, resulting in depression and anxiety as well as a myriad of other health conditions.

When your immune system attacks these foreign air pollutants it causes inflammation, and in the process cytokines are released which enter the brain, and cause inflammation in the brain. When inflammation occurs in the brain, specifically the hippocampus region responsible for learning, memory, and mood, your brain neurons can not communicate as effectively.

You become slow, get brain fog, have trouble remembering, can’t concentrate, and get depression and anxiety symptoms. Air pollution causes depression anxiety in the same way allergies cause depression anxiety. Read More

Secrets For Anti-Ageing And Life-Extension

Through the ages, no one has really looked forward to getting old. Did you know that we humans are the only animals that do not live to our full age potential?

Researchers say that if you take the age at which maturity is reached in all other animals, and multiply it by seven, that’s their expected life span. On top of that in their natural state they live that life as healthy and vibrant beings without medical assistance.

Somewhere between the ages of 16 and 21 humans are considered to be fully mature, this means our genetic expected lifespan is between 112 to 147 years!

Human-kind as a whole definitely don’t make anything like that lifespan, and the average time we spend the last years of our life in aged care at present, is 19 years! Shocked? You should be. So why is it that our average lifespan is only half that it could be at 72 years? And why are we now afflicted with so many diseases, with all the millions od dollars spent on healthcare and research? Read More
