The Rushing Woman Syndrome


Studies have shown that Women physically handle stress differently than Men. After a stressful event the cells in the brain that bind stress hormones for women stay activated long after an event, where as in Men they deactivate immediately. This may be referring to a big event but in today’s world we are in a constant state of stress just trying to get through the day. In comes ‘The Rushing Woman Syndrome” coined by Dr. Libby Weaver. This “Syndrome” is one we can all relate to. So what does that mean to you and how does this manifest in your mental and physical health?

In my 7 years of practicing and working with women, I have seen it show up as anxiety, infertility, PMS, digestive issues, depression, skin flare ups, the list can go on forever. So why do we put so much on our plate? Why do we feel the need to please others at the expense of our own health? And most importantly how do we stop this viscous cycle so we can begin to live the life we want and deserve?

Well here’s your chance! Join Dr Sonya Jensen and her team for their EVERY-DAY Woman Workshops. The first workshop will dive into exactly how these patterns of stress in every day life influence our health and well being. You will learn tools that you can incorporate immediately to help you walk through the challenges of everyday life with ease.

Got Stress? Who Doesn’t?! Especially with the Holidays!

What is Stress?

According to the Mayo Clinic Stress is defined as; a physical, mental, and emotional response to a challenging event-not the event itself. Often refereed to as the fight-or-flight response, the stress response occurs when you feel threatened. Stress, whether positive or negative, is a normal part of everyone’s life. Negative stress, however, diminishes your quality of life.


Notice the emphasis on response. When we react to these external or internal stressors it gives our body signals to release certain hormones to deal with these stress triggers. The triggers may always be there but how we respond to it determines the state of our health.
