Being in a constant state of stress, fight-or-flight, and eating a poor diet have significant implications for the integrity of the autonomic nervous system and the balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches. 

Areas impacted may include digestion, immune system, assimilation of nutrients, neurotransmitters, hormones, metabolic health, weight, inflammation, etc. 

Cortisol levels, proper diet, food sensitivities, and GI assessment give us clues to how well the body is communicating and impacting cells’ ability to their jobs properly.
