Dis-regulation of Stress Hormones
What is the connection between being stressed and having faith in God. According to the ACE Study conducted by Dr Vincent Felitti and his team, chronic stress events early in life disregulates the stress mobilising hormone adrenaline which can lead to hypertension and hardening of arteries. The stress demobilising hormone cortisol if left running mutes the immune system and can lead to autoimmune diseases and inflammation. Some research points to fibromyalgia as a case of both adrenaline and cortisol circulating and then becoming frozen. Let’s take the good news out there, that people do not have to be afraid, for God is with them and teach them how to change chronic stress into faith in the presence of God. Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
