– Hi, I’m Dr. Adam Wadel from North River Family Chiropractic and we’ve been discussing
different causes of headaches. Now we’ve covered physical stresses, but we also want to talk about the mental, emotional stress that
affects our headaches. So we live in a world that’s go, go, go. It’s really fast, right? We talk to ourselves in a CEO voice, “I’ve got to do this, I’ve got to do that, “I’ve got to do this.” And so when we’re doing that, we’re putting ourselves in what’s called sympathetic overload. Said differently, we’re in fight or flight pretty much most of the time. So that does a couple things, one, it raises the cortisol levels, which is a stress hormone in the body. Physiologically, we’re
bringing our shoulders up in a defensive posture. That alone creates more
tension in the traps and extensors in the back of the neck, which can lead to headaches. But we couple that stressful lifestyle with how our diet is. And so since were on the go, we’re eating fast foods, processed foods, foods that come in a box. And these have surplus of chemicals and a deficiency of nutrients. Now you couple that with a
stressful go, go, go lifestyle, we’re going to put ourselves
way out of balance. And when we’re way out of balance with this high level of stress hormones, we’re in defensive posturing, it can lead to headaches. So if you found this video helpful, like it, share it with a
