While most of us experience stress, we often overlook or ignore the stress that we’re under and the harm that it can cause to our body. Stress can come from any expected or unexpected event, thought or circumstance that can make you feel worried, angry or frustrated. Stress is basically your body’s reaction to a challenge, and when it lasts for too long, it can harm your health.
There are two types of Stresses that you need to be aware of:
Acute stress: This is a short term stress that goes away in a small amount of time. It could be when you have a fight with your partner or when you slam your brakes suddenly to avoid an accident. Acute Stress occurs when you are trying something new or doing something exciting. It basically helps you stay out of dangerous and harmful situations. Chronic stress: Chronic Stress lasts for a long period of time. When you are struggling financially or having trouble at work or are in an unhappy relationship, it is mostly chronic stress that you’re dealing with. This stress can last for weeks or months and sometimes you become so used to or familiar with it that you don’t even realize it exists.If you don’t manage this stress well, it can lead to health issues.
Some illness that are caused due to chronic stress include:
Difficulty Sleeping or Eating
Irritable bowel syndrome
Lack of drive
What is NeuroSpot Testing?
NeuroSpot Testing makes it possible to find out about the current stress load in your body. Through a simple urine and saliva test, NeuroSpot Testing detects whether or not there are any stress induced hormones in your body.

Dopamine is very important for coordination, movement, memory and learning as well as concentration and mental performance.
