What Dr. Alice Fong can say in an interview on
Breaking Free From Stress and Anxiety Naturally:
When your body or mind is stressed, your “sympathetic nervous system” is activated. It is better known as the “fight or flight response.” What happens to our bodies when we’re in this “stress” mode is our heart races, pupils dilate, we sweat, and our blood pressure and cortisol rises. It’s an important system to have to be able to exercise or handle dangerous situations. However, the problem is, if we are ALWAYS in this “stress mode,” it overworks our adrenal glands, which is responsible for the output of the hormone cortisol in our bodies. Eventually the adrenal glands will be depleted over time, which can lead to the brain fog, fatigue, sleep disturbances, weight gain, and it makes us more susceptible to getting sick.
