Coping with Stress During the Holidays
Adrenal glands make pregnenolone. Pregnenolone helps us have energy and brain function, and gets made into DHEA. DHEA helps with burning fat and glowing skin… DHEA gets broken down into the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone. Pregnenolone also gets converted into Cortisol. Here’s the kicker: When a person acts instead of responds, the body produces more cortisol. Unfortunately, the body steals cortisol from pregnenolone. This means reduced energy, reduced brain function, and fat burning.
How to Cope
Respond to situations instead of react. Here’s why:
When you react instead of respond, you drive your cortisol pathways. This means that you get an excess of cortisol by stealing pregnenolone. As a result, this steals from progesterone and DHEA, which affects sleep, mood, skin, and overall health.
