Stress / Anxiety

When under stress or faced with a stressful situation, cortisol, the body's stress hormone elevates, blood pressure increases, and our immune function is suppressed.  Over time, these symptoms become worse and can develop into anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia/sleep disorders, digestive problems, and tension headaches.   Stress can also aggravate any already existing troublesome health condition. 

Traditional Chinese medicine also recognizes the mind and body interacting as one, meaning that emotions have a physiological effect on the body.In today's busy society it is no wonder we are more stressed.
