How Your Body is Managing Your Stress
Whenever we go through trauma, the body responds. The body has a biochemical reaction to what we’re experiencing in our life and it’s all for our protection. It’s to help us cope with what we’re facing, to help us deal with it as it’s occurring, and to help us move beyond the stressful experience once the threat is over. For this process to work successfully however, our bodies will burn through lots of nutrients; the raw materials that our body is designed to utilize in order to help us to deal with life and to effectively deal with stress.
