Episode 23 - Stress and Cortisol - What you need to know.

As you know by now, I’m passionate about helping people to understand the effects of stress on their health and wellbeing. I’m breaking down the elements of how stress affects your body over the next few weeks and this week I’m focussing on what happens on a biochemical level in your body when you’re stressed for long periods of time. Cortisol is an extremely important hormone that’s a key part of your stress response and this episode explains how this hormone works and how you can spot when your cortisol is disrupted. I hope you enjoy it.
