The Science of Stress
Stress is a mechanism that provides protection and the ability to learn from new things. When stress is detected, several parts of the brain, adrenals and other glands create internal changes in the body. These changes give our muscles the energy to either fight or run in order to protect ourselves. Whenever we have a new experience, chemical changes take place that channel energy to our brain in order to evaluate the new experience and sift through similar experiences we’ve had in order to present a solution or level of understanding on the new event experienced. During this process thousands of neurons are activated to create networks of connections that can be used in future scenarios for additional learning and insight. Every experience where we feel any level of stress or anxiety always initiates this process.
If we close the stress cycle through properly reconciling the event, we come away a better person. When the stress cycle is not closed however, the foundation for serious health problems is laid. Thousands of activated neurons remain on alert, and the brain continues to believe it’s in danger. This activates glands for hormone production. As we experience other stressful events the amount of neurons on alert build up. Since this is an unconscious process, chronic stress isn’t initially recognized. Little by little however, emotions such as anxiety and fear begin having a predominant place in our life. Multiple organs are affected and our hormone, digestive and immune systems weaken. Dopamine levels decrease and we become prone to vices such as drugs, alcoholism, pornography, gambling, etc in order to get away from our problems. Sleep also becomes burdensome as sleep patterns change. This coupled with the brain’s active neurons causes sleep to be light and insomnia can take over.

Controlling and Alleviating Stress
Phytotherapi Stress and Phytotherapi Sleep make up Phytotherapi’s solution to eliminate chronic stress. Phytotherapi Stress contains sesquiterpenes extract from plants from different parts of the world. This provides Phytotherapi Stress the ability to pass through the brain’s barrier to balance the brain’s biochemistry and relax neurons that are on constant alert. Since the pineal gland (which is responsible for sleep) is damaged during chronic stress, our bodies don’t have the chance to actually recover like it needs to when we sleep. This is why insomnia is typical whenever there is chronic stress. Phytotherapi Sleep normalizes sleep frequencies so you can sleep better and wake up feeling energized and refreshed.
