LGCS chronically activates our nervous system into fighter flight and releases excess cortisol into our bodies. In this episode, I share with you a BTS – behind the scenes – of our last collective membership call all around this silent killer- LGCS!
So, what is the big deal here? Our current way of living causes us to get too much of a good thing -aka cortisol- without enough time and relaxation, to the point that we get stuck in this cortisol-inducing survival mode. The huge allostatic loads that we all bear day in and day out, cause high levels of cortisol which- wear on muscles and bones, slows healing time, impairs digestion, metabolism, cognitive function, and immunity. It disrupts your sleep, microbiome, and blood sugar- even caused food cravings. It blocks progesterone, which is your relaxing feel-good hormone and when your estrogen/progesterone levels are off your periods are off and you’re more likely to have painful periods. Thyroid, sex drive, fertility, and more…. This is a must-listen episode for sure!
