Are you rushing from one task to the next? Checking your phone countless times in a day for emails, social media, or just feeling like there isn’t enough time in the day? You are not alone! This is an epidemic we as Women are facing in today’s world and it is affecting our physical, mental, and emotional health.
When under stress we release cortisol, a stress hormones necessary for the body to move through the stressful event. When this happens this becomes priority over healing, digesting, procreating, metabolizing, the list could go on. Your primary objective becomes to survive any means possible and this state comes at a cost. This stress response is necessary maybe 2% of the time, however the reality of today’s woman is that we are stuck in this state of survival through most of our day.
Cortisol is made from Progesterone, a hormone we as Women need to regulate our cycle, it is anti anxiety and anti depressive, and is the key hormone that keeps us feeling grounded. Most of the issues facing Women today from PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, menstrual irregularities and even infertility can be linked back to low progesterone.
So if you have experienced brain fog, fatigue, PMS, irritability you may be the Rushing Woman. The WNW docs will go into what that means and how biochemically we are not wired to be in a state of survival. As we cannot survive and thrive at the same time. The Rushing Woman Syndrome coined by Dr Libby Weaver is something we all need to have open conversations about as it is affecting our quality of life and our ability to be the best version of ourselves!
