March 21st was the official first day of spring, but generally it takes a few weeks until you can see and feel enough of the changing season to say that spring has ‘sprung.’ The longer hours of daylight, warmer temperatures, and the emergence of flowers are the 3 most identifiable signs that spring has genuinely arrived, and most people will be absolutely thrilled with each of them. A few of us (myself included), however, aren’t entirely thrilled with flowers, freshly-cut grass, and – the worst transgressor of them all if you live in this neck of the woods – that infernal scotch broom!

It’s fairly easy to determine that your adrenal glands are responsible for the production of adrenaline. Most of us will have heard of the ‘fight or flight’ response that’s triggered in the body by the production of adrenaline. This process was a whole lot more integral to our survival thousands of years ago.

Yes Wellness Blog - Prevent 'Inflammaging' to Age Less Quickly

Your body’s immune system is quite the working wonder with the way it responds instantaneously to any external threat entering your body, and quickly neutralizes it the majority of the time.
