When we encounter a stressful trigger, here's what's happening in our brain & body all within split seconds:
1.Feeling out of control reduces prefrontal cortex activity
2.Prefrontal cortex circuits disconnect even with minor decisions
3.Dendrites (cell communicators) atrophy & die
4.Boosting Fight-Flight-Faint- Freeze response
5.Breath moves to chest, thigh muscles tighten
6.Higher blood pressure creates turbulence on blood vessel walls
7.Creates breakage, scar tissue, plague then INFLAMMATION– aka chronic stress = chronic disease
8.Stress strengthens HABITS, like cravings (self- medication) & makes us more emotional & rigid
