What is stress?
Stress is the body’s reaction to the commonly termed “flight
or fight response” which our ancient ancestors needed to survive. This response
is managed by hormones secreted by the adrenal glands to give your body more
resources to run away from danger.
Your body will increase your heart rate
and breathing rate, your pupils will dilate and your blood sugar levels will increase
for an instant energyboost. In order to achieve this response your body diverts energy away from activities like digestion, physical healing of your body and reproduction.
The stress response worked well thousand of years ago as
it was used occasionally to survive but today peoples bodies are in constant
state of stress worrying about work, relationships, finances and other health
So how does stress
effect our health ?
studies have shown that up to 95% of all GP visits are due to stress related ailments.
Stress has been linked to a diverse range of health problems including Cancer,
diabetes, immune system breakdown ,heart disease ,digestive problems, anxiety,
depression and insomnia to name but a few.

Stress can be
physical, mental or emotional and can be short term or long term. Often when we
have had major stressful events in our life like the death of a loved one,
divorce, moving house changing jobs or redundancy we start to
get anxious about everyday situations which left untreated can go on to become
fears or phobias.
So What can do about Stress ?
Firstly you need to
identify what is causing you to be stressed.
Then we need to start to heal your body from the effects of stress. This can be simple steps like paying more attention to what you eat and drink and getting some fresh air everyday.
Now is not necessarily a good time to cause
yourself more stress by introducing a new radical regime into your life which
you may find difficult to stick with, so go gently on yourself.
