Pottstown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/01/2018 -- People who are experiencing unchecked levels of stress are encouraged to read this month's blog post dealing with the health effects of stress, available online from the team at Community Health & Dental Care.
Their team of dentists, physicians and other healthcare professionals is encouraging residents to take a more serious look at their stress levels, and take steps now to lower their levels and prevent long-term complications later down the line.
Stress causes the release of the aptly named stress hormones, chemicals famous for beginning the "fight-or-flight" response. While this response is crucial to keeping humans out of immediate danger, prolonged stress hormone release can have adverse effects on the body.
April is National Stress Awareness Month. The team at Community Health & Dental Care is helping patients of their medical practice and family dentistry in Pottstown understand the importance of relieving stress for optimized health.
Prolonged levels of stress can impact nearly every area of our health. From high levels of blood sugar to an increased risk of everything from depression to heart attacks, stress can lead to a large number of preventable illnesses and conditions.
