Radio Show: Cortisol – The Unexpected Killer

By Ritamarie Loscalzo

Stressed out woman screaming and covering her ears.

Stressed out woman screamingAre you constantly stressed out, even when you shouldn’t be?

Do you worry about anything and everything going on in your life, big or small?

Do you eat quickly, on the run, and under stress?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you are most likely suffering from high levels of the stress hormone, cortisol.

Stress leads to the epidemic known as Adrenal Fatigue (also called adrenal burnout or adrenal exhaustion). When you secrete cortisol on a regular basis, it creates a whole host of problems for your body.

Years of high levels of cortisol cause serious problems. It will catch up with you, eventually. Experts have known and been telling us for years that somewhere between 80-90% of all diseases are stress related. That is too high a number to ignore the reality. Stress is a killer.

Cortisol is not the “bad guy,” however! It is doing its job by reacting to what you tell it to: threats. The problem is that you are no longer being chased by a hungry tiger in real life, but you are reacting to your daily stresses as if you are.

Stress ManSo the hungry tiger chasing you now…is…YOU.

Discover in this show the dangers of continual cortisol spikes, why it’s such a killer, and leave with some solutions you can implement right now to significantly diminish this very real health danger from your life.
