Stress is a well known factor in most diseases and health issues and is harmful to both the mind and the body. In fact, studies show there is no doubt that stress and health are linked. Stress causes the body to produce the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol is very helpful in acute "fight or flight" situations but too much cortisol can be harmful. When a person is overly stressed or chronically stressed the body is constantly producing cortisol and the damage becomes significant. Holistic therapies offer a dynamic, proven and drug free way to reduce stress and improve your overall health and well being.
