Many people who experience emotional pain and discomfort, such as anxiety or depression, also experience physical pain and discomfort to varying degrees throughout their lives. This can range from nausea to fibromyalgia, and it is the body’s way of telling us something is wrong.
Because we live in a world where we are more often than not in a state of fight or flight, our bodies are being flooded with hormones that become toxic to us if we don’t learn how to return to a relaxed response and rebalance our systems.
