Think for a minute what the body goes through during periods of stress. No matter what goes on in our lives, the body is resilient to almost everything we put it through; almost everything.
Nothing harmful continues without showing the wear and tear and the effects of stress on the body.
One of the effects of stress is dysfunction of the adrenal glands; an adrenal enlargement. These are the stress glands of choice in the body. These glands literally become fatigued and “stressed”. Caffeine, sugar, inactivity, emotional stress, physical stress all have a profound effect on the adrenal system and lowers any chance of dealing with stress.
Another effect of stress is the activity of the lymphatic system; an intense shrinkage or atrophy of the thymus, the spleen, the lymph nodes and lymphatic structures throughout the body. They cannot keep immune surveillance. Do you know people who are always sick? Check out their stress and youll find a correlation.
Another effect of stress on the body is bleeding in the lining of the stomach and intestines. The stomach and intestinal lining literally ulcerate.
Another effect of stress is when your mind and body cannot fight against the amount of stress that you are experiencing. These effects of stress show up on the body.
So are these symptoms and effects of stress bad. If we listen and learn from our symptoms we can lessen the effects of stress and become healthy. This can almost be overwhelming to think about and deal with. Isnt every symptom related to stress?Absolutely. Everything we do is related to some kind of stress.
It is only when our mind and body do not overcome the amounts of stress that we have full-blown symptoms of stress.
Symptoms are important — if we listen and learn from them. They speak volumes about a persons health and state of well-being.
The symptoms of stress are symptoms related to the causes of stress: physical, electromagnetic/geopathic, thermal, allergies/sensitivities, toxins/poisons, nutrition, and emotions.
Most people are interested emotions that relate to stress. Emotional stress is what people consider when they think about stress. Emotional health is paramount to your health and well-being. To get a grasp on your stress you have to take time to understand your emotional state. When you do this you can change it for the better.
In order to understand the seriousness of stress you have to understand the three hallmark changes that occur during the duration of the stress.
A. Acute: a stress that is immediate and short-lived.
B. Chronic: a stress of long-term duration with no end in sight.
Once the body is engaged in the fight against the stress it may not be long until it begins to show the damages. It depends on the health of the person in the first place. In a healthy person the fight is strong and the damages are minimal.
Instead of putting attention to the effects of stress, the focus needs to shift to the cause and elimination of stress.
Spend time focusing on your stress triggers. What is it that triggers your stress response? Once you begin to find these you can begin a process of changing your response to it. Instead of responding the old, destructive way, pick a new productive response and become good at it. Here is where you can develop a new pattern and behavior more suitable to reducing stress.
Work on this process for a month and notice the difference. You may find that your symptoms of stress will melt away and fall by the wayside.
