We need stress; to survive, to motivate us and to give us a purpose to life, however each individual has a threshold and this is varible from person to person. Our stress response is our survival mechanism and it can allow us to operate at peak performance for a short period of time – but when the stress goes on and on our health is badly affected .
Long term stress causes changes to the brain and the way we adapt to stressors. Stress affects the way the hippocampus, prefrontal cortex and amygdala of the brain respond and if there is no intervention to reduce the stress load, lack of brain adaptibilty occurs and long term health problems result.

Research also shows nutrients like Magnesium and B vits. etc. along with other nutritional changes can reduce emotional symptoms, anxiety, depression, stress and improve physical symptoms such as pain. What we eat and when we eat are now known to make a huge difference to stress hormone production and how we feel mentally.
