The Corrosive Effects of Chronic Stress

Updated: Oct 9, 2018

Stress is by far one of the biggest threats to our health. Intense events like death, relationship breakdown, moving house, starting a business, or getting married, are acutely stressful times in our life, but many of us bounce back easily once the intensity of the stress dissipates. The more insidious stress that many people fail to consider, is the chronic low grade stress we encounter EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Chronic stress in a menacing and corrosive condition. Each small stress hit, is one that our body must counter. If the catabolic rate of stress and break down is higher than the anabolic rate of repair and metabolic reserve, then we will start to experience a negative shift in our health, towards a path of disease.
