What’s Making You Stresstipated?
While stress is typically associated with worrying or feeling overwhelmed by a difficult situation, it isn't just a mental state. Stress can also be physical, triggered by endurance and high-intensity exercise, illness, injury or lack of sleep.
No matter what causes your stress, your body reacts by going into fight, flight or freeze mode, releasing hormones in response. And when stress is prolonged, it can interfere with your digestive process, wreaking havoc on the ecosystem in your gut.
