Reducing Toxic Chemicals Naturally
Are you feeling toxic?
While there are toxic chemicals in your diet and your water that can affect your health over time, there’s actually something that could be even worse for you.
It’s called high cortisol and you probably have it right now.
High cortisol can actually multiply the effect of all the other chemicals you’re exposed to and can affect every single aspect of your health.
Cortisol is a defense mechanism against stress. It’s wonderful for surviving a crisis as the burst of cortisol released during fight-or-flight can be lifesaving. It’s just that the daily chronic stress most of you experience never allows your body to reset and repair.
When stress becomes deadly
Chronic disease, premature death and accelerated aging are just a few of things you can expect when your body produces too much cortisol.
Excess cortisol has been shown to shorten your telomeres, the caps on the end of your chromosomes. Shortened telomeres = shortened life span. It also translates into looking much older than your chronological age.
Do you want to raise your risk of heart disease? How about increasing your risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, and Alzheimer’s? Every chronic disease is accelerated in the presence of elevated cortisol.
Chronic stress also compromises your liver’s ability to process toxic chemicals before they can do you harm.
How to lower cortisol
Luckily, nature already provides us with herbs that work to reduce cortisol, so that we can lower or even eliminate our fears about chronic disease. They’re called adaptogenic herbs but we also like to call them “nature’s perfect food”.
Why nature's perfect food? Because they are the only herbs proven to lower cortisol. They are the perfect herbs to offset modern living and chronic stress.
These adaptogens have also been shown to re-establish the adrenal-brain relationship by lowering cortisol and reducing tension. After taking them, you’re not only in a better mood, but you can also begin the process of lifting depression and anxiety. Your immune system can start to work the way it is meant to.
All of these things are possible with a daily dose of adaptogenic herbs!
