Stress /  Irritability

We all experience some degree of stress from time to time and it is quite normal as a human.

However, we shouldn't ignore if your stress is affecting your everyday life or becoming chronic situation.

Do you see your body's alert?  

When stress is becoming chronic, the brain function called hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis (HPA axis) starts to go 'out of balance'. When this starts to happen, our whole body starts to go out of balance.

1. Lowered immune system 

  • You may become more prone to get unwell because stress actually reduce white blood cells. White blood cells protect our body against infectious disease and foreign invaders.​

2. Disrupted digestive system / Altered gut flora

  • Diarrhoea, constipation, 'Not feeling right' in your gut might be caused by stress because your gastro intestinal mucosal function becomes impaired. 

  • Research shows that stress can even impact on your gut flora! Evidence shows the decrease of 'good' bacteria and increase of 'bad' bacteria.

3. Sugar cravings! 

  • Yes you may be experiencing sugar cravings, but there is science behind. Your sugar craving might be coming from low serotonin level due to 'unbalanced' HPA axis which is caused by stress... whoa body is all connected. 

4. Weight gain / Loss

  • Increased stress has big impact on your body weight too. If you are experiencing unexplained weight gain/loss, your adrenal health may need attention.
