Learn how chronic mental stress, leads to the chronic activation of the body’s emergency stress response. This response is designed to be called upon for up to 30 minutes to assist us to survive life-threatening emergencies. When prolonged, this response manifests in massive shifts in hormones, a powerful inflammatory reaction and reallocation of internal resources, such as the immune system, away from their usual function of ensuring growth, health and optimal functioning.
