Did you know that stress can actually be dangerous?
Most people think that stress is just a common part of life, and while that’s true, it isn’t as innocuous as you may think. Prolonged periods of stress can actually be dangerous, and there are many ways that stress can harm your body and your life. Luckily, with our mats, you can manage your stress easily with far infrared therapy. The following is a list of a few of the dangers of stress that far infrared therapy may help you avoid:
#1. Weakened Immune System
Your mind affects your body more than you may realize. A high level of stress for a prolonged period of time is very demanding for the body, and that can cause your immune system to get weaker. This makes it easier for you to catch colds and other infections.
#2. Heart Problems
Stress can cause quite a bit of damage to your heart. Chronic stress actually leads to the constriction of blood vessels and an increase in heart rate. This leads to an increase in blood pressure and it forces the heart to have to work harder than usual. In fact, the American Institute of Stress has found that, after stressful incidents, including earthquakes and hurricanes, the rate of heart attacks increases.
#3. Bone Density Problems
Not only does stress affect your heart and your immune system, it can also affect your bones. Studies have found evidence that low bone density can actually be associated with high levels of stress.
