An overload of stress can chronically elevate or deplete cortisol levels, disrupting a system called the HPA axis, a set of hormonal communicators that play a key role in numerous functions.

The HPA axis is an ever-dynamic intertwining of the central nervous system and the endocrine system. With a consistent input of daily stressors, the HPA system has a repeated and sustained activation that can create hormonal imbalances.
