Tesco Ireland has announced the launch of an exciting initiative, Tesco Community Fund, which will see €1million donated annually to local good causes throughout Ireland. TV presenter, Kathryn Thomas, met with the store managers from Mayo recently, to support the launch of the initiative and is calling on all local good causes in Mayo to get involved. Every six weeks, each Tesco store in Mayo will donate up to €1,000 (€500 in smaller stores) between three local good causes in its local community. Customers will decide how the funding is shared by voting for their preferred cause in store. From this week on, every time customers shop in any Tesco store in Mayo, they will receive a token of goodwill to place in the donation box of the local good cause they would most like to support. Every six weeks, the number of tokens is counted and up to €1,000 is distributed proportionally between three local good causes. The more tokens a local good cause gets the larger share of the donation they will receive.

How stress affects the body

Acute stress is a response to imminent danger, it turbo charges the system with powerful hormones that can damage the cardiovascular system. Chronic stress is caused by constant emotional pressure. It produces hormones that weaken the immune system and damage bones. The stress response begins in the brain and then the body unleashes a flood of hormones to prepare for the flight. Adrenal glands react to the alert by releasing epiniphrine/adrenaline, which makes the heart pump faster and the lungs work harder to flood the body with oxygen. The adrenal glands also release extra cortisol and other glucocorticoids, which help the body convert sugars into energy. Nerve cells release norepinephrine, which tenses the muscles and sharpens the senses to prepare for action. Digestion then shuts down. This can cause significant damage and numerous symptoms.

This energy through its own intelligence vibrates through to the very core of our being and unlocks the healing ability lying dormant within every cell of the body.
