Overactive "Fight or Flight"
Toxic Stress throws your body's "Fight or Flight" system into overdrive. An overactive "fight or flight" can wreck havoc on the body creating lots of un-needed mental tension and physical distress through headaches, upset stomach, and body aches.

"Fight or Flight" Mechanism?
