Helping to manage or reduce stress in your life is one of the best things you can do for your gut health.
One of the questions I always ask my clients is to rate their stress levels, from one to ten with ten being super stressed!
All my clients who are struggling with constipation rate their stress levels at eight and over – some even score a 12 – off the scale!
There are a lot of things in today’s busy world causing stress – finances, relationships, traffic, kids, exams and work.
Your body responds to stress by releasing hormones including adrenaline and cortisol. This gets your body ready to respond to a threat or emergency. It’s often called fight or flight.
This stress response is designed to respond in the moment. It causes your heart to beat faster, your muscles to tighten and your breathing to speed up. Short term stress can be good for you but when these levels of stress remain for days, weeks or months it has an undesirable impact on your body including your digestive system.
If your digestive system isn’t working fecal matter and air get trapped in the large intestine (bowel). This creates pressure and can cause bloating, nausea, constipation and discomfort as one of your major detox pathways grinds to a halt.
It can become a vicious cycle feeling like this and with your tummy poking out like you’re pregnant, it can cause even more stress.
