Learn how you can cope with the effects of stress – fatigue, tiredness, anxiety, depression, hypertension, heart attack, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cancer and more.
Do you know what stress is? In short, stress is a state of intense nervous tension caused by a negative physical or emotional impact.
Stress is an integral part of our daily lives. Often we work too much, worry about many things, are constantly confronted with a variety of situations and constantly need to make decisions, each of which is stressful to some degree. Stress is virtually unavoidable and in certain circumstances can lead to disturbances in our physical and mental state.
Is stress harmful?
Did you know that stress is the main enemy of your health? According to the World Health Organization, over 90% of all diseases are psychosomatic, i.e. they start in the psyche (stress) and then affect the body. The first symptoms are irritability, tenseness, anxiety, depression, impotence… Alas, most of us don’t know how to deal with stress and don’t recognize they have problems until they knock them down. Do you want to learn how to preserve your health and protect yourself from disease despite stress? Read this information!
Worry, fear and anxiety are important for our survival because they prepare us to deal with danger. They lead to the secretion of the hormone adrenaline, which prepares us to fight or flee: the heart starts beating faster, blood pressure and blood sugar rise, etc.
If worries, fear and anxiety persist for longer, chronic and harmful stress, which doctors calldistress, occurs. This is a disease state, not an adequate adaptive response.
Which people are at risk?
- Type A – competitive, ambitious, workaholics, ignorant of stress symptoms;
- Overemotional – overly sensitive, vulnerable but not sharing their problems;
- Family burdened – pathological environment and upbringing provoking stress;
- Stressful events – economic crisis, dismissal, debts, divorce, misfortunes;
- Negative thinking – e.g. influenced by bad news from newspapers, TV etc.
Symptoms of chronic stress
- Bodily – numbness, trembling, dizziness, vertigo, muscle cramps, visual disturbances, tightness and pain in the stomach and abdomen, difficulty breathing and chest pain, feeling tired, impotence, etc.;
- Psychological – poor concentration, distractibility, irritability, anxiety, depression, pessimism, anger, sadness, mood swings, crankiness, weepiness, etc;
- Behavioral – misusing food, alcohol and cigarettes, hanging out in front of the computer, avoiding problems, seeking safety.
The consequences of chronic stress
Anxiety, fear and depression can provoke ulcers, gastritis, colitis, asthma, thyroid disease, arthritis, hypertension, irregular menstruation, hormonal imbalance, impotence, frequent viral infections, chronic fatigue, etc.
If no measures are taken, a complete breakdown of the defense mechanism can occur with severe degenerative damage to all organs and systems, heart attack, stroke, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune diseases, cancer, etc.
The RIS system and its strengthening
It has been scientifically proven that our psyche (P) through the nervous system (N) influences the endocrine (E) and immune (I) systems. Key factors in the PNEI are the hypothalamus and pituitary, the autonomic nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic), the endocrine glands (thyroid, adrenal, gonadal, pancreatic), the circulatory system, the thymus, etc.
The influence of food on the PNEI system
If stress has started to turn you into a moody workaholic with no desire for sex, with a weakened memory and shaky nerves, suffering from distractibility, impaired concentration of attention, palpitations, heartburn and pain, it may be high time to pay attention to your diet and follow some recommendations.
- Don’t skip meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks at 10am and 4pm. Take small portions of low glycemic index foods for stable blood sugar and enough energy.
- Breakfast for champions: oatmeal is rich in vitamins B and E, magnesium, fiber and slow carbohydrates that stabilize our energy. Super energy food is even better because it is enriched with dozens of beneficial ingredients – try it!
- Vitamins and minerals: important for good health. If you are unsure about the quality and purity of your fruit and vegetables, look to AFA and Spirulina algae . There are also special formulas with ionic minerals.
- More magnesium: it stabilises nerves, regulates blood sugar and helps with stress. Contained in green foods (especially microalgae AFA ), nuts (almonds), seeds (quinoa) and cereals (oats, barley).
