What would you say if I told you IT IS!
Each night, we do not SLEEP our bodies think we are on high alert and we create a stress reaction but if you sleep well the next night that stress reaction goes and the body goes back to relax mode.
When we are in HIGH ALERT MODE this H.A.M creates the stress reaction like you are about to fight a Dinosaur. This produces CORTISOL this we need to stop pain if the dinosaur bites us and makes us heal quickly. Only H.A.M was poduced from just less sleep along with ADRENALINE. Not a dinosaur or any other threat to us.
So why is this so bad?
Long term H.A.M is bad for us because the CORTISOL eventually can leave its toll on our bodies by causing puffiness under our eyes and holding water in our bodies, this is to dilute the cortisol when it’s not been used to fight the dinosaurs.
Other symptoms ACNE, LINES and HAIR LOSS. can all be contributed to OVER PRODUCTION of CORTISOL.
While the body had one job to save its life, it does not at that time produce COLLAGEN or ELASTIC that make us look younger.
It’s not just lack of sleep that causes H.A.M. But drinking too much coffee, eating foods that we are sensitive to and #stress in the #workplace.
Coffee produces ADRENALINE this in turn releases cortisol. We get the alertness from adrenaline it also has addictive qualities this cortisol, our bodies want more it thinks it’s saving our lives.
You now see why DRINKING WATER can be helpful in diluting the toxic CORTISOL (our bodies natural CORTISONE ) it then allows us to let go of those puffy eyes and water retention that can look so ageing.
This is you running away from the dinosaur and bringing in fresh nutrients and kind to our looks hormones like endorphins these do help Collagen and Elastine. As well as help detox our bodies.
