It's no secret that the fight and flight response our bodies have as part of our DNA can quite often get stuck in overdrive. No longer does this response, which causes the body to pump out hormones to help us flee danger, kick in only in life threatening situations. For many of us, daily life keeps these hormones flowing at top speed. Gradually, as we age, the overload of stress hormones can take a toll on our cardiovascular system or/or our brain. Heart attacks, strokes and memory issues can be the result.
