Everyone experiences stress at some point, because it is a natural part of our fight or flight sympathetic nervous system and a response to the many demands we place upon our body. How we respond to stress can help or hurt how our body responds to all of these stressors. However, prolonged stress can produce harmful physical, emotional, and physiological changes and effects on the body.
Some signs of an unhealthy response to stress are:
- Digestive Issues
- High Blood Pressure
- Skins Conditions
- Weight Problems
The above illnesses can be mitigated by meditation, mindfulness and acupuncture. Acupuncture is one way to help calm your mind and allow your body to heal itself of the damage that stress does to the body. Practitioners of acupuncture have been helping patients deal with stress for many, many years an acupuncture goes beyond treating just signs and symptoms of an illness and also addresses the root of the condition.
