Human emotion and instinctive responses have been evolving for 2.5 million years. These evolutionary adaptations have been very effective in allowing us as a species to survive. However, the rapid rate of development of modern society has left us with a set of survival responses that are for the most part now outdated. We are generally no longer presented with life or death situations. Modern day stresses manifest differently to those we were presented with millions of years ago, and our body can only attempt to combat them with the arsenal it developed to keep us alive.
The adrenal glands release the hormone Cortisol into the kidneys to initiate a fight or flight response in a survival situation. The body uses the same mechanism to cope with the lower intensity, prolonged stresses encountered in daily life. Over time the adrenal glands become fatigued and cannot continue to operate effectively. The body also reacts adversely to the continual presence of survival hormones. Symptoms include high blood pressure, lowered immunity, poor healing of wounds, increased abdominal fat, blood sugar imbalances, increased infection, premature aging and lowered bone minerals.
