Chronic Stress part 2 for first responders, I bet you haven’t heard of this yet..

If you could pick a word/ phrase to describe the past two years as a first responder, what would it be?

Mine, Burnout

I did my fair share of beating myself up about it too

That I didn’t handle the stress like I “should” have ..

I knew better
But I didn’t I do better
I rode the struggle bus 🚌 until even that broke down! 🤦🏻‍♀️

What I eventually discovered was

It wasn’t a reflection of my character

A lot of it
For a long time
It had caught up with me…

Newsflash 💥

Stress has REAL consequences that deeply effect our physiology and psychology

How deep exactly ?
We are talking the foundation here

You may have heard of “Adrenal Fatigue”

While the symptoms are Real that term
Is not accurate,
your adrenals don’t get tired 😴 they are not intelligent on their own


The system that directs them however, can become dysregulated

HPAD or Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis Dysfunction
See below to learn more about this and the consequences

It can be a lot to put together through some IG posts so..

I am excited to announce I will be hosting a FREE webinar in Jan of 2022
Understanding First Responder Stress

We will talk about short term and long stress
How they challenge the body and the connection to health issues like

Sex hormone disruption ( Low testosterone or cycle irregularities)
Weight gain / loss
Mood swings
Digestive distress
Sleep issues

And most importantly…
What we can do about it!
