hey guys I’m back in this video we’re gonna talk about the six natural ways to lower cortisol okay now what does cortisol cortisol is a really important hormone that you really need a certain amount of it but we don’t need too much and we don’t need too little of it if it’s too little we’re going to have inflammation a lot of immune problems if it’s too much we’re gonna have a lot of other additional issues including stress states in the body blood sugar issues high blood pressure a whole bunch of other things okay but cortisol if it’s too high is very destructive on the body on the aging process it breaks down your collagen it makes you look older so we want to keep that we want to bring it down to a normal level a lot of people have too much cortisol and it interrupts their sleep so there’s actually six ways to do it naturally okay we’re going to talk about the first part right here where we’re going to decrease body stress do you realize that all the stress that you’ve ever experienced is stuck in your body to some degree so stress accumulates your body is like a sponge and it holds stress and what I’m going to show you in this next part is several key things that you can do to extract stress using an acupressure device that I created so let me just go ahead and go right into it and show you that right now check it out it’s very simple we take the widest part right here and on your couch you lean back and you put this right in the mid part of your neck sit back and you let gravity push your head back into this device and you just before you go to bed for two minutes we’re going to take the longer portion and press it into some points in the abdomen about an inch to the right of your belly button and then we’re going to press directly inwards like this pressing in right like that and I’m going to hold this pressure not so it’s very painful but just so this pressure for about maybe a minute or so and its releasing stress if this takes the lot of the flight-or-fight stress out of your body also in your middle back that’s the second part that’s where you’re going to hold all the stress to because the slider fight mechanism is located in your mid-back and that’s where you want to work on a lot of stress also is contained in the underneath on the top of the chest and the top of the heart so that’s another technique that we want to do to extract stress to the upper upper chest area and then the back of the upper neck by the skull where it connects to the neck that’s another place where you hold stress okay we’re back to the second thing which is increasing the quality of sleep that you have so we have the quality of sleep and we have the quantity of sleep we want to get to the root of it now in the last section with reducing the body stress of course that is going to help you sleep so stress could stop you from sleeping but there’s other causes of sleep issues as well number one your bladder at night you’re peeing all night long that’s because you have insulin resistance or maybe a sleep apnea and you have one of those machines that’s a sinus problem that you have or insulin resistance so there’s many different things maybe you’re missing nutrients okay but if you go through all these things and apply some of this stuff you’re going to start sleeping better and it could be that you just get up early and you don’t let yourself go to sleep so whatever you can do to enhance the sleep do it even if you have to take naps that’s going to reduce cortisol very very important next one increasing aerobic exercise I’m not talking about the aerobic exercise that you would do I’m talking about the type of exercise which is lots of oxygen low stress and that would be walking a mild version of yoga because they have Power Yoga right now which is extremely exhausting I’m talking about something that’s going to create a lot of relaxation I like the long walks will you get a lot of space that will lower cortisol also there’s low intensity workouts like Pilates very good for cortisol nutrient wise as far as vitamins increasing b1 is the key vitamin for your adrenals and stress b5 is also a key B vitamin support the adrenals and recovery and vitamin D as these vitamins go up cortisol will go down okay number five herbal adaptogens you can use ashwagandha there’s a whole series of that you can use I’ll put them I’ll put a link down below of what I recommend but adaptogens can actually lower our cortisol as well and then increasing the parasympathetic nervous system if you haven’t watched my videos before maybe you’re not familiar with this word but the parasympathetic nervous system is that nervous system that is actively working to calm you down it opposes the sympathetic nervous system which is the flight of fight so it’s in the background chilling you out keeping things calm but when you lose this heart rate goes up stress goes up and you’re in a state of flight-or-fight which is stress so to support this of course all these are going to do it and also potassium will do it and magnesium will do it so you want to start consuming more potassium magnesium you could do it through electrolytes you can do it through greens vegetables it just so happens that vegetables have the highest amount and so if you’re just eating pure protein let’s see during the Atkins diet and you’re not doing enough vegetables you’re going to get a lot of phosphorous and not enough minerals to calm the nervous system down so you’re going to actually have hard time sleeping you’re gonna be more stress if you want to accelerate the nervous system especially the flight-or-fight you want to take phosphorous if you want to chill it out you want to take potassium magnesium all right so go ahead and apply these and put your comments below

Dr. Berg talks about the 6 ways to naturally lower cortisol. Cortisol is an adrenal hormone that is made by the outer part of the adrenal glands called the adrenal cortex. We need cortisol but we do not need too much or too little. It is involved in your immune system, anti-inflammation and regulating blood sugars and proteins. If it is too high, it can be very destructive on your body proteins causing atrophy.
