Struggling to lose weight and nothing is working no matter how hard you try? Trying to conceive a baby?
Do you have or have you had chronic stress in your life? We all hear that stress is bad for us but it's interesting to look a little deeper to understand what that actually means.

While your body is in "Fight or Flight" mode, it is not activating our "Rest & Digest" or "Feed & Breed" response. Your body aims to keep your essential organs pumping, and digestion and reproduction are not considered essential functions.
