The Condition Proven To Be the Number 1 Killer of People World Wide

As I became older, starting in my early 40s, I commenced looking more into my health and paths to maintain it. It looks the more I looked around and read, the more it was clear that what we call stress is at the root of the majority of emotional and physical issues. Some medics even reference it as the human killer as it has such negative results on us from the cellular level to brain chemistry, immunological reaction function and more . So I decided step one I would take in my journey to extend my across-the-board healthy would be stress management And not to my continuing surprise it has delivered benefits.

What we call stress is a natural and automated response that is primal which let us either run from danger or fight. This is commonly known as the run or fight syndrome. But when we were in peril or a life threatening situation and our adrenaline rose, the hormone cortisol was released and our bodies went into hyper active mode, it would go down and we went back to basics. In the meantime, there weren't so many other things in life that bombarded us to have a stress reaction so we stayed fairly healthy. Or at the very least stress wasn't the key contributing element to poor health.

But think how so many folks, actually the majority, live these days. They get stressed over stressing about their roles, their better half or partner. Folk get stressed over the economy or perhaps tiny stuff like where to go on vacation or what to do IF something occurs or somebody announces something. Folks are not only consumed with stress over actual experiences but they get stressed over things they create in their minds that may never happen. And remember, everytime we get stressed, the automated physical response occurs and the problem is we do not exert that energy and return to normal function and it is occuring too often so the body then suffers.

That hormone called cortisol that's released in the stress response breaks down our immunological reaction, feeds the malignancy cells we have in our bodies and maintains fat as the fat is what's defending organs and other parts of the body to be harmed. Wow, what a triple whammy that is and its all just one negative issue related to stress. Add to that the emotional strain that's got a negative result on our bodies for destructive feelings impact us at the cellular level. And it just gets worse as it is going on and on and on.

So when we begin to look at what actually matters in life, when we begin taking responsibility of our approach to how we live and then decide to reduce all the factors that lend themselves to stress we are able to then start to live more fit and happier and make a higher quality of life as well as more years to our lives. And accept it or not, after you start to look at things and see what actually does not matter, its quite surprising what we allowed ourselves to get caught up in all the time.
