Every symptom we have is related to stress. It is only when our mind and body does not overcome the amount of stress that we have several symptoms of stress. Symptoms of stress can be a life sentence. Symptoms of stress can include adrenal fatigue and this is why it is very difficult for the person to rebound.
Are symptoms bad?
Symptoms are important — if we listen and learn from them. Symptoms of stress speak volumes about a state of well-being. The symptoms of stress are symptoms related to one of the major causes of stress: physical, electromagnetic/geopathic, thermal, allergies/sensitivities, toxins/poisons, nutrition, and emotions.
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 you can change it for the better.
Name one symptom and it is related to stress. We all have stress symptoms. This is a part of life. How we each deal with stress in our lives leaves clues to our quality of life. Symptoms speak volumes to how we deal with life.
You want to be more specific? Your heart beat is related to stress. At rest it beats to pump blood through your body. The more you work, the harder it beats and when you really over-do it, it can’t keep up with your demands.
Physical stress, emotional stress, and nutritional stress all exhibit symptoms of stress in different parts of the body and mind. The question isn’t all the symptoms of stress that society keeps chasing. It is in finding the cause of stress related to your symptoms. Remove the cause of your stress and you remove the affect of your stress.
How to remove the cause of your stress takes work and dedication. There are some tools that work and some things you can do that will increase your stress. Find what works for you and make a stress management plan for a lifetime.
Stress is a normal response of your body to situations that you perceive as ‘dangerous’. We all have amounts of stress every day that we each have to deal with.
Etch this into your brain: Any symptom you have is related to stress to some degree or another! A great practice to get into is to correlate the symptom you have to a particular stress. Is your symptom related to lack of sleep, bad food, insufficient exercise, or emotional stress?
Can you even identify your stress? Is your stress buried deep?
When you ask pointed questions about your symptom and your stress you might find an answer you need to move beyond your current level of health.
Physical symptoms of stress are virtually any symptoms that show up. Physical symptoms are a mirror from the body to the stress the person is going through. Chronic stress brings with it many of the physical symptoms you are probably dealing with today.
Symptoms caused by stress go through many physiological changes.
The first effect on the body is that blood is diverted from less vital to more vital organs. Over time and amount chronic stress, less blood in a certain area causes that area to become malnourished. Then this body part may give physiological symptoms. All due to a stress response and reaction by the body. The cure? Remove the stress–THEN attend to the physical symptom. After a period of time, your body will nourish the non-vital area once again and the body will heal. Can you see why addressing the physical symptom of stress without finding the cause of stress is foolish?
The first hallmark sign of the body’s reaction to 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.
The second effect in reaction to 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 you’ll find a correlation.
The third effect of stress on the body is bleeding or deep irritation to the lining of the stomach and intestines. They literally ulcerate. Stomach ulcers. Intestinal ulcers.
It is when the mind and body does not overcome the amount of stress that we have effects of stress show up on the body. Are symptoms of stress good? If we listen and learn from our symptoms we can lessen the effects of stress and become healthy.
