Take Control of Your Stress and Heart Health with B.R.E.A.T.H.E.(TM) - The Easy-to-Learn Stress Management Tool Created by Board-Certified Cardiologist and Author, Dr. John Kennedy.
Stress regardless of cause, whether finances, relationship, family problems, difficult commute, or challenging workplace, can all trigger the stress response leading to a release of stress hormones that cause our heart to race, blood pressure to rise, and an increase in inflammation, which all wreak havoc on our health. It is essential to identify the stressful triggers in our lives and learn effective stress-relieving coping skills because heart disease starts early and may be causing damage without feeling symptoms. As a cardiologist, I have learned that heart disease starts early and has a long, asymptomatic lag-time, so learning effective stress relieving tools early can help protect your heart and optimize your health.
The stress response is triggered when exposed to a life-threatening situation leading to a release of stress hormones that cause our heart rate to increase, blood to rush to our large muscles, pupils to dilate, our palms sweat as we prepare to fight or flee which is great when faced with a hungry bear, though our frenzied, multitasking lifestyle can trigger the same stress response often and frequently for more mundane day-to-day stressors which over time can be extremely harmful to our health.
