Stress comes in many forms. Endless to-do lists, financial worries, family demands, and constant multi-tasking are common American habits that add up to mental stress. Unfortunately, many people also deal with insurmountable grief over the loss of a loved one or pet, the emotional and physical demands of caring for an ailing family member, divorce, and unthinkable tragedies.
Stress can also be physical in the form of injuries, illnesses, inflammation, toxin exposure, and certain foods and eating habits.
Stress will make you sick by exacerbating your current symptoms or creating new ones. Thankfully, nutrition can help relieve mental and physical stress.
