Physical Symptoms Can Be Caused by Stress

Avatar_MarkWEarnhart Stress can produce symptoms in the body psychologically. Stress is identified in three phases: 1) alarm, 2) resistance and 3)exhaustion. As health practitioners it is our job to help you determine which stage you are and what is the proper support needed.

Psychological Stress Symptoms: anxiety, sleeping problems, depression, anger outbursts, ADD, hyperactivity and agitation.

Adrenaline Over Activity Symptoms: headaches, colitis/IBS, high blood pressure, muscle
spasms, panic attacks, eczema and ulcers.

Physical Stress Symptoms: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, infections, allergies, autoimmune
conditions, inability to hold spinal correction and chronic pain.

Most of today's population is in at least one of these three stages and exhibiting symptomatic expression at one level or another. We are being "stressed out" at all six levels of interference: 1) structural, 2) emotional, 3) nutritional, 4) electromagnetic pollution, 5) allergies/sensitivities and 6) toxic accumulation.

The body is a complex of web-like interacting systems and not isolated in any way. Therefore,digestion is important and is linked to the immune system and nervous system, etc. For one simple example, Probiotics and Enzymes can help to aid the digestive system when we are working to balance stress in the body. Heavy metals such as lead or mercury may also be
compromising all of the systems of the body and must be addressed before long term healing can take place.

These are a very few examples of the wonderful and complex interactions of the body. It is
important that we look at the whole body and all of its systems to get the results needed..
