Adrenaline or epinephrine is your short-term, acute stress hormone. It’s designed to help you get out of danger quickly. It is the hormone that promotes the fight or flight response, that results in your blood supply being diverted to your periphery, (i.e.) arms, legs. In order for your body to have the energy to fully execute on the fight or flight system, you need fuel or energy, and the most readily available source of energy in the body is glucose.
Diminishing who you are and what you have to share with the world out of fear or judgment has an impact on both your physical and mental health. The physical effects are rarely discussed even though there is a definite correlation that results from increases in adrenaline, blood sugar, and insulin. Listen in to Dr. Cori to learn more….

And when I said no, I felt like I had to offer an explanation as to why I was saying no.

I worked really hard to get to this point, so I don’t think it’s a bad way to celebrate my birthday at all!”
Happy International Day of Yoga! It also happens to be Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year! Last week I taught my first yoga class! I was so worried about the class, but I survived and I’m officially a RYT-200. As excited as I am about yoga, I almost didn’t teach….
