This should be noted for those who are awake at night:


This can take forever to fully heal if stressors remain. Stress marketed herbs do have positive effect, Finding middle ground is the challenge.

Cortisol levels and sometimes blood glucose are sometimes found to be elevated with those who exercise more intensely. Elevated cortisol signals the liver to release more glucose during stress or high physical activity.

If stress-cortisol does not lower to normal, glucose continues to be dumped in the blood at unhealthy levels.

Low to moderate exercise almost always lower cortisol and glucose, its documented that "intense" exercise can have the opposite effect with some individuals as its actually seen as stress by the body.

Thanks for this article. I needed this refresher.

My doctor said that we need to lower my stress. I said 'help me get all my kids healthy'. I've really come to learn that this chronic high level stress that I've been under for several years now has really really really finally negatively affected my own health.

The middle of the night awakenings lately is really getting old. (Tired of seeing 4am on the clock every night! Sometimes midnight or 2am too.)

And no matter what time I go to bed, I'm up at the same early time every day (6ish). : |
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
