Environmental factors can have a negative impact on overall health and well-being, disturbing homeostasis-the balance our bodies need to function optimally. Such challenges, even when they do not immediately result in disease, cause our bodies to function below optimal levels. These include the following:
Stress: Clinical studies have linked high stress levels and chronic stress to numerous negative health conditions.
Toxic Insult: Exposure to a wide array of toxic insults, including disease-causing pathogens; hormone and pesticide contaminated food products; and increasing levels of free-radicals from pollution, foods, and cleaners, contributes to rises in the occurrence of varying illnesses.
Inflammation: The increased consumption of food with pro-inflammatory components (foods high in polyunsaturated vegetable oils such as safflower, sunflower, corn and peanut oil) together with high- carbohydrate, low-protein diets, contribute to increased inflammation in body systems. Stress, with its accompanying imbalance of cortisol, can also contribute to inflammation, as do various (and increasingly prevalent) immunological dysfunctions. Studies increasingly show links between fatal diseases and inflammation.
Autonomic Imbalance: The opposite of homeostasis, an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system (aka the ANS or visceral nervous system) can negatively impact health in a number of ways. Restoring the body's homeostasis can reduce the physiological impact of stressors on the body.
