Stress Can Kill: Natural Solutions to Protect Yourself
Stressors have a major influence upon mood, our sense of well-being, behavior, and health. Acute stress responses in young, healthy individuals may be adaptive and typically do not impose a health burden. However, if the threat is unremitting, particularly in older or unhealthy individuals, the long-term effects of stressors can damage health. Since chronic stress is ubiquitous in our society, it is necessary to recognize and mitigate its damaging effects. Handling stress will be considered in terms of our legacy of automatic physiological and emotional reactions to physical danger, in the context of the more subtle stressors in today's world, and using our cognitive resources for stress management. Lifestyle, hormonal, and nutraceutical approaches to relief of stress will be discussed in this workshop.
Learning Objectives - The attendee will learn:
- The effects of Adverse Childhood Events (ACE) on long term health and cognition.
- The physiologic reasons stress impairs memory
- How stress causes hormonal decline and overall wellbeing
- About general stress reduction techniques, including relaxation, anxiety management, meditation, nutrition, and exercise.
