Stress series

“I don’t eat any junk, still I suffer from acidity”

“I eat so less, still I gain weight”

“I never ate much sweets in life, still I acquired Diabetes”

Can you relate to any of this?

Have you ever analysed, how lifestyles have changes since your grandparents age?

Lifestyle is not only about what you eat and do, it’s also what you think.
And today I am sure no one of you can say that you don’t have any stress, you don’t have any erratic thoughts, you don’t have any inner chatter going on in mind.

As Louis Hay once said, Dis-ease in mind creates Disease in body. So let’s understand:

How Stress affects Digestive System?

Stress is a natural physical and mental reaction to life experiences. Everyone expresses stress from time to time. Anything from everyday responsibilities like work and family to serious life events such as a new diagnosis, war, or the death of a loved one can trigger stress.

For immediate, short-term situations, stress can be beneficial to your health. It can help you cope with potentially serious situations. Your body responds to stress by releasing hormones that increase your heart and breathing rates and ready your muscles to respond.

Yet if your stress response doesn’t stop firing, and these stress levels stay elevated far longer than is necessary for survival, it can take a toll on your health.

Digestive system Effects:

Under stress, your liver produces extra blood sugar (glucose) to give you a boost of energy.

If you’re under chronic stress, your body may not be able to keep up with this extra glucose surge. Chronic stress may increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The rush of hormones, rapid breathing, and increased heart rate can also upset your digestive system. You’re more likely to have heartburn or acid reflux thanks to an increase in stomach acid.

Stress doesn’t cause ulcers (a bacterium called H. pylori often does), but it can increase your risk for them and cause existing ulcers to act up.

Stress can also affect the way food moves through your body, leading to diarrhea or constipation. You might also experience nausea, vomiting, or a stomachache

This is just a flash from some of the effects of Stress on your body. There is much more to it.

Understand and resolve your stress into love and light ❤️
