Anxiety & Stress
Stress and Anxiety Relief
Feeling like there are too many pressures and demands on you?
Losing sleep worrying about bills and relationships? Eating on the run because your schedule is just too busy? You're not alone. Everyone experiences stress at times - adults, teens, and even kids. But there are things you can do to minimize stress and manage the stress that's unavoidable.
What Is Stress?
Stress is a feeling that's created when we react to particular events. It's the body's way of rising to a challenge and preparing to meet a tough situation with focus, strength, stamina, and heightened alertness.
Events that provoke stress are called stressors. They can cover a whole range of situations, everything from outright physical danger to making a being late on your bills or going out on a date.
As a negative influence, it can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger, and depression, which in turn can lead to health problems such as headaches, upset stomach, rashes, insomnia, ulcers, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. With the death of a loved one, the birth of a child, a job promotion, or a new relationship, we experience stress as we readjust our lives. In so adjusting to different circumstances, stress will help or hinder us depending on how we react to it.
Can I Eliminate Stress from My Life?
Stress cannot be eliminated but it can be managed. Proper attitudes, lifestyles and diets can help. There are also nutritional aids then can help in times of overwhelm. What we need to do is find the optimal level of stress which will individually motivate but not overwhelm each of us.
How Can I Tell What is Optimal Stress for Me?
There is no single level of stress that is optimal for all people. We are all individual creatures with unique requirements. As such, what is distressing to one may be a joy to another. And even when we agree that a particular event is distressing, we are likely to differ in our physiological and psychological responses to it.
It has been found that most illness is related to unrelieved stress. If you are experiencing stress symptoms, you have gone beyond your optimal stress level; you need to reduce the stress in your life and/or improve your ability to manage it.
Is Stress Affecting the Quality of Your Life?
If so, you're not alone. Stress and anxiety affect many of us. The effects of this anxiety can cause us to loose sleep and remain agitated and uncomfortable all day.
Anxiety can be a temporary event or it can be prolonged. Many times anxiety is related to the endocrine system and to brain neurotransmitters.
The main areas of concern from chronic stress are:
1. Adrenal Exhaustion
2. Neurotransmitter Exhaustion or Imbalance
3. Hormonal Exhaustion
5. Cellular Energy Exhaustion.
Fortunately these can all be diagnosed and treated.The first step is to determine the underlying cause of the fatigue and then to address the specific systems involved. The following products and tests can be of great help to you in overcoming fatigue so that you can feel good again.
