These items are things that people use everyday because they are extremely fatigued and are looking desperately for a “quick fix” to get through their next chore or hour of work. Caffeine is used to start many of your days. Some people say they can’t be without it or that they have to ingest several cups per day because they are so sleepy. The second is Sugar of all types. Some of you do not consume white sugar directly but have a diet that is high in starchy carbohydrate consumption or snacks. Those that deprive their bodies of the right foods create a deprivation that causes a large amount of Stress on the body. The Sugar consumption increases the cortisol level, lowers your metabolism, causes fat storage, lowers muscle mass and makes you a very unhappy campers! The third item is alcohol. Brain Chemicals that signal your adrenal glands to produce that cortisol to handle Stress are directly affected by alcohol consumption. I read a study on About.com called “Chronic Drinking Increases Stress Hormone” that proved if you are a steady drinker cortisol will show two to three times higher during the day and night even after drinking has stopped. ( Read more at http://alcoholism.about.com/cs/health/a/blacer030915.htm) So, how much has the casual drinking changed or influenced a higher saliva test score or blood work result? And you thought those glasses of wine were relaxing you? Do we need to help you with nerves, stress and addictions in a natural way?
Most of us think that high stomach acid from Stress is the cause of an ulcer. Actually, scientists in early 1980 determined that most ulcers are actually caused by a bacteria called H.Pylori. And guess what? If you are an O Blood Type you are twice as likely to have an ulcer caused by this very resilient bacteria. It is capable of living in very acidic conditions by creating a local lower acidity pocket around itself.
Ulcers which are irritated by Stress cause stomach pain, lack of appetite, nausea and vomiting. If they bleed, your bowel movements get dark black. We definitely get improvement by changing our diets to match our blood type. Doctors will remedy the situation by medications such as antacids and antimicrobials. We like to encourage the dietary changes along with using Natural Remedies (surprise, surprise). Bladderwrack, Fucose containing seaweed Golden Seal and Slippery Elm are some of our favorites.
Ulcers are tough to deal with on your own and we work to get your body to respond and reduce your inflammation as quickly and effectively as possible without the side effects of typical medications.
Those headaches usually come from stress. Stress takes fuel in the form of a vitamin, mineral or amino acid. We normally provide enough fuel to match or balance our output. Breakfast gets us to the next fuel time of Lunch and so on. If we do not eat enough of the right kinds of fuel (like enough protein) our bodies start to scavenge through our system and steal other forms from different areas of our bodies. Add to that a stressful or emotional situation and you get depletion. Feeling tired, lethargic, achey, sinus, low back, stomach and a shaky need to eat feeling of light headedness and headaches in either temple area are very common.
You may be deficient in the Mineral Zinc. Other symptoms may be acne, a sharp stabbing pain in the lower right side, constipation and for women – good old monthly cramps. You need to be careful when using zinc as too much can be toxic and/or if you take it on an empty stomach, it can make you nauseas. Best to have guidance or be muscle tested if you have chronic headaches as there may be a lack of more than one mineral involved. There is help to reduce the harmful effects of STRESS.
Stress shows itself in Mental, Emotional and Physical Ways. We all experience some form of Stress. Many people I muscle test try to tell me that they have a stress free life yet need help in areas of patience, tolerance, fears, nervousness, sleep problems, digestive disorders and bathroom difficulties (if you know what I mean!). An article in an older Magazine named “Real Simple” stated that , “If you space out and forget things that STRESS is more likely to blame.” Stress triggers the release of a cascade of hormones such as cortisol, which targets cells in the areas of the brain that are critical to memory and other cognitive functions. A little pampering to those screaming adrenals helps to recover from those effects and stress subsides and memory performance starts to improve or does it? Our deficient diets, our jobs, our children, our elder parents, the bills, the carpooling, pets, laundry, shopping and whatever else we can fit into our day does not allow much relief from STRESS.
How does your body cope with Stress? After a while it doesn’t. It gives us symptoms at first and when it does not get your undivided attention, they get more extreme until they knock you down.
It really is time to take responsibility for this segment of your health before it gets out of control and you find yourself on too many meds doing nothing for you. It is a lot of wasted time and money to keep trying different medications. No one else can really do it for you and there truly is not one magic med that can help with all areas of your body effected by this complicated entity known as STRESS.
Now on with the answer:
They are Mental, Physical and Emotional. You only pay attention when it reaches Mental and Emotional. Your physical Stress is in your body long before you realize it. That recurring sinus infection that you cannot shake and annoys the heck out of you is a sign of Stress. The stomach ache that keeps bothering you every time there is a competition, test or event that gives you nervous stomach is another sign of Stress. The Third sign of Stress has to do with low back trouble and the fourth sign is Sugar Lows. That light headed feeling that you need to eat right now.

Keep repeating and you end up living with a chronic ailment and a boat load of side effects from all the meds in your cupboards. I am here to tell you that you don’t have to live that way.

You do have a choice of methods to handle your nasty symptoms. Long term health starts with cleaning out toxins (that we discussed last month).
If you walk around with your shoulders in your ears, your physical stress is chronic. It is a physical reaction of stress to feel the stiffness in your neck and the tight shoulders. Massage feels good but as soon as you let your mind start thinking those stressful thoughts, the discomfort returns with a vengeance. One of the herbs that helps to keep your emotions in tact and loosens up the shoulders is L-Theanine. It is best taken over the day to prevent the problems in the first place but two capsules can make a significant difference within 20 minutes and if it is a truly bad day, every four hours is probably a requirement.
Most people get used to the way their body feels and think that stress is a normal part of everyday life. What they really are experiencing is chronic adrenal fatigue. Using supplements to help repair and pamper your adrenals and using heat and relaxation techniques is a must before your body gets sick and knocks you down to get the rest you need. Even children can use the chewable formula to help keep them under control. And yes, children do stress out because they are not capable of doing some of the physical and mental things the older children or adults can do. They also pick up on the stress their household is under. If there is a significant amount of arguments around their space, they take it in like a sponge. Sometimes the hyperactive behavior is best dealt with by calming the parent which kinesthetically calms the child. Just like in the airplane if the oxygen mask were to be of need. Take care of your mask first, then attend to those around you. Things that make you say hmm!
