In this video, we’re going to talk about how to stay calm when you’re stressed and have high cortisol.

Cortisol and adrenaline are the primary stress hormones that your adrenal glands produce.

The adrenal glands have an outside and an inside. The inside part of the adrenals is made up of neurological tissue—this is the part that releases adrenaline. The outside is made up of glandular tissue—this is the part that releases cortisol.

Both of these hormones help adapt your body to stress. The more stress you experience, the more your adrenal glands are activated and release stress hormones.

Your body does not handle prolonged stress well; it’s meant to handle short bursts of stress, not chronic stress.

The sympathetic nervous system is the part of your nervous system that handles your fight-or-flight mode. Your parasympathetic nervous system is the part of your nervous system that handles rest and digest mode.

Stress isn’t always a bad thing—it’s what helps you progress and adapt to life. However, getting stuck in chronic stress can cause many issues throughout the body.

The effects of stress can include:
• Poor sleep
• High heart rate
• High blood pressure
• Arterial inflammation
• Cortisol resistance
• Lowers immune function and inactivates the natural killer T-cells
• Increased cancer risk
• Poor memory
• Brain fog
• Increased risk of nutrient deficiencies (K+, B1, H+)
• Alkalosis
• Breathing problems
• Catabolic effects (breakdown of muscle
• Bone loss
• Poor kidney filtration
• Increased blood sugar
• High insulin
• Digestive issues, including ulcers
• Increased belly fat
• Low vitamin D

How to stay calm:
1. Do physical work or exercise
2. Stay in action
3. Take vitamin B1, vitamin D, magnesium, and potassium
4. Get on a Healthy Keto and intermittent fasting plan
5. Take herbal adaptogens
6. Do breathing exercises
7. Try acupressure stress extraction techniques
