• Stress Relief

    Feeling like there are too many pressures and demands on you? Losing sleep due to worrying? Eating on the run because your schedule is just too busy? You’re not alone. Everyone experiences stress at times — adults, children and even our beloved animal family members.

    Human and animal bodies respond to stressors by activating the nervous system and specific hormones. The Hypothalamus signals the Adrenal Glands to produce more of the hormones called Adrenaline and Cortisol and release them into your body.

    This natural reaction is known as the Stress Response. Working properly, the body’s Stress Response enhances the ability to perform well under pressure. But the Stress Response can also cause problems when it overreacts or fails to turn off and reset itself properly.

    Ongoing or long-term events, like coping with a divorce, death of a loved one, moving, a new school or job can cause stress, as well. Long-term stressful situations can produce a lasting, low-level stress that’s hard on you, your family and your pets. The nervous system senses continued pressure and may remain slightly activated and continue to pump out extra stress hormones over an extended period. This can wear out your body’s reserves, leaving you feeling depleted or overwhelmed. This ongoing Stress Response weakens your body’s immune system, and can cause other complicated health issues as well.

    Exercise, meditation, a good night’s sleep and a healthy organic food program will assist in lowering your stress levels. TERRAOCEANA’s products can help support you and your family whether two or four legged to cope with life’s unavoidable stressors.
