“It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.” –Lou Holtz
With our busy lifestyles, long work weeks and non-stop stimulation from electronic devices, its no surprise that Americans are starting to see some of the ill effects that the accumulation of stress can have in our lives.
Stress has been linked with many detrimental health problems including multiple cancers, heart disease and even brain shrinkage.
Anything you can to do in your daily life to irradiate the effects of stress is not only going to reduce the occurrence of these stress related diseases, its also going to make you function and feel your best.
While its always worthwhile to look at different ways one can reduce the amount of stress we have in our lives, living a completely stress-free life just isn’t realistic for most of us. With work deadlines, children and elderly that need to be cared for and all the unexpected life challenges that pop up in between, stress is our bodies natural response to feeling out of control of changes in our lives.
While circumstances beyond our control set off stress and anxiety; acupuncture allows your body to take back control.
The stimulation of acupuncture points has shown in multiple studies to slow the production of cortisol, the body’s stress hormone. With regular treatments, many patients have found that they could strengthen their body’s ability to adapt to stress. Allowing them to feel better, get sick less often and function better in their lives. Adding acupuncture to your wellness plan is a natural, safe and effective way to take your health to the next level.
