If You Think Inflammation is Bad...

Wait ‘Til You Hear About Anti-Inflammatory Drugs

Today, stressors are typically associated with intimidating deadlines at work, spousal disagreements, or social pressures. Even though the body is rarely put into physical danger under this type of stress, the brain signals the adrenal glands to flood the body with hormones that put the body into survival mode, or “fight-or-flight” mode.
