The Biology of Stress

In April 2015, three Centered team members (Dr. Amy Coleman, Lauren Higdon and Joshua Saxton) attended a holistic health and wellness conference in New York. In this video, our own Dr. Amy Coleman (Founder and CEO of Wellsmart) talks with Carey Davidson (Founder and CEO of Tournesol Wellness) about stress plays an integral part in calling forth surging defense systems of the body, using much of the body’s resources in the process. Have you ever felt tingling in your fingertips that was traced back to tightness in your shoulder? Dr. Amy discusses why that’s the case — and how you can justify and empower yourself to reduce stress. Watch Dr. Amy’s talk on the biology of stress in this video from Tournesol and Wellsmart:
