Stress – The Enemy That Jeopardizes Your Health


The Effects of Stress on Your Body


Whenever you had a health issue, you probably set up an appointment, and you went to see them. Maybe the prescription you got actually helped, at least for a while.


But what do you do when you get hooked up on medication? What do you do when the doctor keeps prescribing drugs that only work while you take them, if at all? Who can you trust then?

The answer may seem obvious, once you understand what happens with your body before you get any disease or condition. It all breaks down to what you eat, think, and how you feel. All diseases are caused by poor nutrition and stress. Once you understand this simple fact, it will be much easier to take care of yourself, and avoid unnecessary trips to the doctor. It all starts:

When you eat…

stressYour body does a nutritional triage, by sending the vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbs, and fats to where it needs them most. This is very similar to how patients are sorted in the Emergency Room of any hospital. If one of your major organs or body functions is in danger, your body will take care of it first. This keeps you alive without you even paying attention, or being aware that it’s happening.

This also means that your hair, nails, and skin are some of the last destinations on the priority list. This is why your hair starts falling; your skin gets wrinkled, and your nails get weaker in time. When a problem eventually arises, it’s usually caused by many years if improper nutrition.

There’s no cream that can help you with the causes of the problem since it’s more related to your lifestyle choices and nutrition. Make no mistake; stress is a key aspect of your overall health, that shouldn’t be overlooked. So, the next time you see a doctor, make sure that you address these issues first, and if they fail to address the underlying causes of your health issues, feel free to see someone else.
