Join me as I interview Julie Casper, HTMA Practitioner at HealthElite.us, to discuss Exercise, Athletics and Physical Degeneration. In this show we will discuss the powerful autonomic nervous system: the sympathetic (fight or flight) and parasympathetic (resting and digesting) systems, stress and how these systems impact your health in every way. You will learn how they are connected to your adrenal glands, what role cortisol plays, how it impacts your weight, how exercise or over exercise impacts these systems, why athletes die at young ages despite their physical fitness levels and what happens when one system dominates and how it can change your entire chemistry!
