1280 720 Dr Rozina Lakhani

Have you ever wondered if adverse experiences can affect your brain and body functions?

Extreme stress or adverse experiences especially in childhood can cause a lot of problems not only mentally and emotionally but also physically. 

Too much exposure to stress can cause chemical imbalances in our brain. This affects the body’s ability to fight infections and inflammation, making people who experienced trauma more susceptible to disease and illnesses. It can also lead to disrupted sleep patterns, mood changes, and even depression.

Would you like to learn how your body reacts to stress and discover ways on how to restore balance in your brain and body so you can live a happy and healthy life?

In this weekly special, I explained how adverse experiences affect one’s biology.

What happens to the brain and body when one experiences adverse situations?

When people are exposed to stressful situations, the brain releases a chemical called Cortisol. This is often referred to as “stress hormone” which helps control blood sugar levels, regulate metabolism, help reduce inflammation, and assist with memory formulation.

Constant exposure to stress causes the brain to produce less or excessive amounts of Cortisol, thus affecting the overall body functioning.

You may be asking, is there a way to fix this chemical imbalance caused by adverse experiences?

Fortunately, the answer is YES!


What are some tools for managing stress and restoring balance in your brain and body?

Dr. Glenn Schriraldi shared some helpful mind training tools in his interview for Happy and Healthy Mind with Dr. Rozina, such as a 5-minute foot-to-head stress reducer, a calming technique called kneading, and many more.
