Yoga Free Stress And Relieve Pain

Image
Any situation the body perceives as dangerous or threatening triggers the stress or “fight or flight” response in the body.

This threat may be overt physical danger or more subtle, dealing with interpersonal conflict such as a disagreement with a coworker or situation pressures, like coping with financial problems.

The body’s efforts to deal with a threatening situation cause a series of reactions. The heart accelerates to provide maximum oxygen levels to organs and cells. The muscles tighten and shorten to prepare for action, to maneuver through the situation, to fight or to flee from the danger. Adrenaline courses through the body heightening awareness and providing a quick burst of energy.

The automatic stress response serves a purpose. It protects the body. However, chronic stress, remaining in a stress response state for a prolonged period of time, takes a negative toll on the body. It causes physical and psychological distress, which affects a person’s overall health and well-b…

Image
Food manufacturers want us to believe "natural" means a particular food item is healthy.

You may even believe this yourself, right?

Consider that viruses, germs, and bacteria are natural. Many deadly poisons, such as arsenic occur in nature.

Yet, that does not make them a healthy food choice. What does natural on a food label signify?


If you see the word natural on a food label, does that imply healthy food?
The consumer advocate magazine Consumer Reports relates “natural” can be a deceptive term. Food manufacturers will not likely use the term "unnatural" on their products. Foods labeled natural may have a healthy, harmful or neutral effect on your body.  Consumer Reports believes that the natural label is applied to unnatural foods and has urged the FDA to ban its use on food labels.
