In this section, I want to explain how your body reacts to and deals with the aftermath of stress. Whilst you may think that the symptoms and pains you are feeling means you are deteriorating into ill-health, it is the opposite. Your body is actually initiating or is going through the healing process. Stress is usually the trigger to ill-health and possession of this knowledge is power. Understand the symptoms and the timings and you can identify the stress triggers, so as to minimise or eliminate them from your life.
