Stress has become synonymous with our fast paced lifestyle.  It is also one of the most common underlying causes of chronic illness. In a society that has unprecedented numbers of ‘time-saving’ and ‘stress reducing’ gadgets, we are even more stressed out then before.

Stress wreaks havoc on our bodies by reducing our ability to sleep, eat properly and digest what we do put in our mouths. This culminates in a reduction in the capacity of our immune system leading to increased infections and inflammation and ultimately decreased health. With increased stress there is an increased risk in the development of a number of chronic diseases and illnesses that are becoming all too common. These health concerns include:
