Today we’re getting into the nitty-gritty of chronic liver stress. The body is truly an amazing machine, and when it is under stress, it sends us signals that far too often we ignore or treat only at the symptom level. My hope is that this episode will help to shed some light on how to reduce or even remove stress and get your body back to normal function. 

I’ll be sharing some really important information about the five common symptoms of a chronically stressed liver (these will probably surprise you!) and reiterating what the different types of stress are. I’ll also be discussing how the hypothalamus steps in to fix chronic stress within the body and what that often looks like on the outside in terms of symptoms. By the end of this episode, I promise you will know more than most medical professionals!

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • The five symptoms of a chronically stressed liver.
  • How the body copes with a liver under chronic stress.
  • What happens in the body when we need energy.
  • The three different types of stress and the four stress inputs.
  • How the hypothalamus works to normalize function within the body.
