woman stressed out(NaturalHealth365) Chronic physical, emotional or psychological stress can cause serious health problems like, asthma, depression, migraines, heart disease and cancer. Unfortunately, as Western medicine has evolved, the focus has been on more ‘sophisticated’ testing procedures without much emphasis on effective solutions. So, why are so many people complaining about stress these days?

Don’t ignore emotional stress! We place so much importance on ‘getting things done’ – that we forget the simple (stress-free) pleasures in life like, reading a book, taking a walk at the beach (or park) and just being kind to another human being. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Autumn Frandsen will lay out a plan of action for all those suffering from adrenal fatigue and chronic stress symptoms.

Making the connection between emotional trauma and degenerative disease

Peter A. Levine, Ph.D., an expert on trauma, says that trauma happens “when our ability to respond to a perceived threat is in some way overwhelming.” For many people, the noticeable symptoms of being stressed out include: numbness, hyperarousal, hypervigilance, nightmares, flashbacks, helplessness and avoidance behavior. The physical effects of chronic stress, whether conscious or not, tend to be rapid heart rate, tense muscles, unusual weight gain (or loss), sleep disorders and a sleuth of chemical imbalances that trigger inflammatory-related diseases.

Being in the fitness industry, for nearly 30 years, I’ve studied the effects of stress on human performance and it’s really quite interesting. Well-trained athletes understand the value of remaining calm in the ‘eye of a storm’ by utilizing deep breathing techniques, maintaining good posture and positive imagery – which increases their chances of achieving a successful outcome. When dealing with a stressful situation, don’t overreact and focus on solutions.

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, we’ll talk about how to support healthy adrenal function, balance hormones and the best ways to reduce stress naturally.

What are the best ways to normalize adrenal function?

After you perform the proper diagnostic tests, with a qualified healthcare provider – which may include a 24-hour urine sample, saliva sample or hair analysis, it’s time to focus on solutions. For some, in the short term, the ‘Kalish Method’ can work wonders by replacing the exact hormones missing in the body – for a short period of time – until the adrenals get restored. For others, simply eating smaller (organic, non-GMO) meals – throughout the day and doing some mild exercise can help to reduce stress and balance hormones – especially cortisol levels.

Naturally, there are many other ways to avoid the negative effects of chronic stress and prevent adrenal fatigue. For starters, begin your day in quiet meditation and make a nutrient dense, low calorie breakfast meal (or smoothie); reduce your time on electronic equipment – especially wireless (radiation) devices; avoid late night T.V. or stressful conversations (right before bedtime) and, be sure you’re getting enough nutrients like, vitamin C and minerals like, magnesium, selenium and iodine – which help to calm the nervous system.
