How the Body Adapts to Stress

Our body is constantly adapting to new stressors and situations. But exactly how does the body adapt to stress? According to a recent study out of the University of Utah, there is “a vast network of interactions that suggest how cells adjust in real time to withstand stresses on our health.” The body adapts to various stressors when “chemical reactions inside our cells switch on, slow down, or shift strategy so that we have the energy and strength we need.” According to Jared Rutter, PhD, they have discovered how “nature has evolved to ‘drug’ its own proteins and pathways.” This discovery will help the medical field to develop better therapeutics.
