From an evolutionary-biological point of view, stress is a natural survival mechanism that is quite appropriate in certain situations and can even have a positive effect in the right dose. However, chronic stress, i.e. prolonged stress, is a condition that pushes our body to its limits and should therefore be avoided.
Chronic stress is associated with numerous health risks and problems because it unbalances the body's hormone balance. The hormones released during this process are toxic and can cause a variety of chronic diseases.
