Is stress getting the best of you?

Many people suffer from stress – it’s an unavoidable part of modern life. But chronic stress can have a negative effect on your body and your brain.

When we are exposed to a chronic stressor – like working a high-pressure job or losing a loved one – your health can be put at risk.

How does stress affect your brain and body?

1Changes in your brain.

Constant stress signals take a toll on the brain, literally. Chronic stress can lead to a reduced brain size1, high rates of death2, and changes in neural network connectivity3.

2Changes in your body.

Because the brain and body are linked, chronic stress triggers changes in the body and can result in low energy, headaches, loss of libido, and a weakened immune system4,5.

3Impacts on your health.

Anxiety, chronic pain, anger, depressed mood, and even dementia symptoms can all result from chronic stress4. In fact, stress is the #1 cause of memory impairment in people under age 506.

The key to overcoming stress-related conditions is to treat the brain. The eVox Brain Map helps your doctor identify the cause of your symptoms and develop an individualized treatment plan. This might include medications, lifestyle changes, or biofeedback training to help re-balance your stress response and improve your mental resilience.
