How it works..
When your nervous system picks up signs of emotional or mental distress, it signals for the release of stress hormones (including adrenaline and cortisol).
These hormones put your body in "fight or flight" mode, and this is a reflection of our biological programming. Our bodies needed to generate quick energy as soon as stress occurred.
As a result, when stress hormones were released, our caveman bodies made stored glucose available for energy by dumping it into the bloodstream.
Although most of our stresses are now more emotional or mental in nature, our bodies still react the same way.
Chronic, continuous stress over time causes repeated infusions of stress hormones in your system. That can eventually lead to conditions like headaches, high blood pressure and digestive disorders (like IBS).
When under stress, your body releases special chemical messengers called neurotransmitters.
These neurotransmitters speed to different areas of your body and cause various chemical and physical reactions.
That's why your heart rate increases when you're frightened or your stomach gets rumbly when you're anxious.
Stress and the gut
Stress hormones and neurotransmitters also affect your gut flora, where between 70%-80% of your immune system is.
No wonder we get sick....
Getting your BARS run WILL help alleviate STRESS...There are 32 points on your head that store your thoughts, feelings, emotions and beliefs on all subjects.
