Do you or someone you know suffer from skin issues such as rashes, hives, eczema, psoriasis, acne or rosacea? Did you know that stress can be the main cause of or exacerbate skin conditions?
Research shows that stress plays an important role in the health of your skin.
Stress hormones are released when under stress and cause a chemical response in the body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. One of those hormones is cortisol which triggers increased oil production in the skin and can clog pores and lead to breakouts. High cortisol levels also cause inflammation.
In a study published in the Journal of The American Academy of Dermatology, the relationship between psoriasis and stress was examined over a period of 20 weeks. “A positive correlation was found between the severity of symptoms and psychological distress and the impact of adverse life events. According to these results stress reduction could be regarded as part of the treatment offered to patients suffering from psoriasis.”
Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce stress levels by reducing stress on the brain and nervous system which can actually help improve skin issues.
