Stress, anxiety and depression are just a few of the serious health concerns affecting millions of people globally on a daily basis.
According to research, over 40 million people are facing this issue in the United States alone.
Stress is inevitable. Stress can be a motivating factor for some people, however it can be harmful to others.
Stress is a warning that signals danger and that action is needed to change a situation.
Our bodies secretes different hormones to assist in our body’s response. These hormones were designed for short term situations with long periods of rest between.
Long-term stress can be damaging because the body was not designed to be in a constant state of stress.
Stress can adversely affect our cardiovascular health, metabolism, damage organs as well as weaken the body’s immunity, thereby putting people at higher risk of contacting other severe health issues.
Causes of Depression
According to Chinese Medicine, the main cause of depression is stuck energy while according to western medicine, depression is caused by imbalances of hormones and neurotransmitters. However, both schools of thought agree on the primary causes of depression:
• Emotional stress from the day-to-day activities.
• Too much work
• Inadequate sleep or rest.
• Poor diet
• Lack of workouts.
• Death of a loved one
