Stressed? Your stress could be making you sick!
Too much stress can negatively impact your health and contribute to serious illnesses and diseases. Stress is now a modern epidemic!
Studies have found many health problems are related to stress. These include:
- high blood pressure
- depression and anxiety
- gastrointestinal problems such as heartburn and irritable bowel syndrome
You may wonder how stress leads to these conditions. One example is obesity and diabetes. Stress can lead to unhealthy eating and excess drinking – both of which can worsen diabetes and weight gain. But it can also directly increase blood sugar and increase the hormone, Cortisol, which appears to increase weight gain, especially abdominal weight gain.
But before you get too stressed out about being stressed out, there is some good news!
