According to Dr. Neil F. Neimark, our body has its innate “fight or flight response” system in reaction to whatever stress we encounter. This response system is initiated by our brain (hypothalamus) to prepare our body, physically and psychologically. Whenever we are exposed to stress (external or internal), our “fight or flight response” system is triggered. As a result, our body produces stress hormones such as cortisol and norepinephrine.
