Stress related illnesses cause 50 to 80 percent of all illnesses in modern life. Long-term exposure to stress can lead to serious health problems. It can cause or exacerbate such health problems as depression, anxiety, heart disease, hypertension, and obesity to name a few.

I often hear, 'I'm so stressed out' or 'My problem is too much stress'.  Few people realize that it is not the stress itself but our reaction to the stress in our environment that depletes our immune systems and leads to illness.  Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way. If you frequently find yourself feeling frazzled and overwhelmed, it’s time to take action to bring your nervous system back into balance. The body doesn’t distinguish between physical and psychological threats. When you’re stressed over a busy schedule, an argument with your spouse, a traffic jam, or your finances, your body reacts just as strongly as if you were facing a life-or-death situation.
