We laugh about it as if it were nothing to worry about.
However, I am seeing more and more clients whose health is being seriously affected
by constant nagging events in their lives which are exhausting the very system
which was designed to protect them.
Adrenal exhaustion is no laughing matter !
There is no doubt in my mind stess IS a killer.
Our adrenal system was intended to spring in to action to protect us from a foe/lion
or other dangerous predicament which was immediately threatening our life. Unfortunately modern life presents many stressful events
on a regular basis and far more frequently
than the system was designed to cope with. A demanding job, an unhappy marriage, divorce, financial worries, abuse, etc., etc, the list could go on.
If stress persists long term,eventually the adrenal system becomes exhausted
and a whole host of problems associated with other organs begins.
It is a downward spiral towards worsening health
and one which left unattended, will never resolve by itself.
Our modern diet does little to help prevent this.
I frequently see patients who are deficient in the key nutrients such as anti oxidants, vitamins B, C and D required to support the nervous system.
The good news is - adrenal exhaustion can be corrected
with nutritional therapy.
Having said that, everyone needs to look at their life style
and do something to reduce their stress.
We all have TIME.
It is up to us how we organise and prioritise our day.
Obviously bereavement and divorce or similar are beyond our control,
but rushing around chasing deadlines,
tolerating situations just because it seems easier than sorting them out
is foolish and damaging.
Don't let stress ruin your health. It doesn't have to !
because your health matters
