In today's episode of Mind Your Health, we're diving into the intricate connection between stress, cortisol, inflammation, sleep, hormones, and weight gain. What a mouthful!
The daily stressors we face, whether from work pressures, personal or family challenges, or even environmental toxins, can elevate our cortisol levels.
Elevated cortisol levels have a cascade effect to impact our sleeping, eating habits, and weight, all through the HPA axis, aka our stress response.
By prioritizing your wellbeing and understanding these connections, you can take control of your health and steer it towards a more harmonious path, NATURALLY rebalancing your hormones and losing weight.
What's in store for you during this week's episode:
🌟Understanding the science between the HPA Axis and cortisol, inflammation, weight gain, etc.
🌟What triggers HPA Axis imbalance in your everyday life
🌟Practical tips and habits that will help you rebalance hormones and lose stubborn weight
