"Today we understand that much of the imbalance in our bodies is caused by our inabilities to slow down and release tension. Our sympathetic nervous system is designed to provide us with the reflexes to fight or flee when we are in danger. And when the system is switched on, we can’t relax for a few seconds. Cortisol and adrenaline flood the bloodstream to give us a burst of energy to deal with threats. But these powerful chemicals are not meant to course through the body for more then a short time. If we’re truly in danger, we fight or flee and then quickly recover, as the adrenaline and cortisol are reabsorbed into the body’s system and our body slows to normal. But when we’re chronically on high alert, paralyzed with anxiety, toxic levels of cortisal remain in the body, causing inflammation and neuron damage and ultimately, disease."
