#003:  Stress, It's Connection to RA, Plus 8 Practical Tips to Manage It

You know that feeling...

... your heart starts to race, breathing rate increases, and beads of sweat start to form on your body...

... these are none-other than the physiological signs of a stressful moment taking place.

How about when the physical symptoms kick in?

The headaches, fatigue, dizziness, or the indigestion?

Stress is something we all face dozens of times throughout our daily lives. 

Ideally, we go through the stressful moment, our body resets and we go about our day.

But too often, that stress response is working overtime, slowly but surely wrecking havoc on our body and health.

Add Rheumatoid Arthritis into the mix, and you have a double whammy.

Today I'm talking all about stress  - 

  • What it is
  • How our body responds
  • The effects it has on our internal systems
  • The impact it can have on people with RA
  • Eight practical tips on how to manage it

Happy Listening!
