A Natural Cure for Anxiety – Teal
Teal explains the reason why our bodies have the stress/anxiety response and the best way to cope and handle these conditions without drugs. Anxiety is a worldwide problem. It is a problem where our own biology—which was designed to insure our survival as hunters and gatherers—is sabotaging our bodies and minds.
When we feel fear or stress, our body releases cortisol (the stress hormone). This cortisol release is part of the fight or flight response. Back in the day, it enabled us to do things like jump out of the way of an attacking predator or falling rock. In today’s world, those kind of dangers aren’t as relevant. But even though they aren’t relevant, we still have the same biological reaction to stress.
