Depression, Anxiety & Stress Damage the Body
You may be wondering why we have grouped Depression, Stress and Anxiety in the same category. Despite their key differentiating characteristics, each one of these conditions has a similar physiological response within the body, causing chaotic fluctuations in the hormones, cortisol levels, neurotransmitters and spiking adrenaline. When our bodies become over stimulated and over taxed continuously, we can no longer maintain normal functioning and subsequently symptoms will inevitably develop. These symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety can very easily cause damage to your body in left untreated.
Symptoms can be different for everyone depending on their bodies and individual biological make up. However most of the symptoms below can be improved or controlled with holistic methods.
