There are several reasons that you may not feel up and bright today. Stress is one of the biggest. Listening to the news, reading about the financial difficulties the country is having, work related worries, and family related worries.
How do you get relief? If you are like I was, reaching for the bottle, aspirin or ibuprofen, can be one way. However, the after effects are not healthy and it does not help with the emotional stress.
Is This Hormone Creating Chaos In Your Health?
Cortisol, known as the “stress hormone,” is integral to our body’s “fight or flight” response.
Originally designed to help us survive life in the wild, the “fight or flight” response was essential when our ancient ancestors were faced with sudden, brief danger like, let’s say, a tiger.
However useful in short bursts, releasing cortisol too frequently, as we seem to be doing in response to the ongoing or “chronic” stress of modern life, may have serious, even scary, impacts on our physical, mental and emotional health.
In fact, living in this kind of biological “survival mode” may be making us more vulnerable to everything
from cancer to heart disease, and more.
New research, however, is showing one technique extremely effective in helping to reduce cortisol levels.
In fact, in a study of 83 participants this technique demonstrated a 24 percent decrease in cortisol levels, while the two other groups, one that received no treatment and one that received talk therapy, showed no real change.
This technique, known as EFT or Tapping is causing shock waves in the medical world as more and more science is proving its effectiveness in improving health, both physically and emotionally.
A new video, just released today, explains some of this new research and shows you exactly how you can use it right now to improve your health.

P.S. – If you’re ignoring your levels of stress, anxiety, and overwhelm then you might as well ignore what you eat and exercising…because those emotions have just as big of an impact on your health…
