Dealing with chronic stress with Dr. Bal Pawa
The emotional demand of stress can build up over time and if stressors are always present and you constantly feel under attack, that means your fight or flight reaction stays switched on. The long term activation of that stress response and the overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones that follows can disrupt almost ALL of our body processes leading to symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, problems sleeping, depression, anxiety, digestive issues, memory or cognitive impairment, cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases and so much more.
But life doesn’t have to be like this and this episode's guest, Dr. Bal Pawa, an MD and Harvard trained mind-body health expert and author of the best selling book The Mind Body Cure, will share ways for us to shift away from chronic stress and into restful and more resilient states.
