How Stress Impacts Your Health

Stress is something that we deal with daily. According to the American Institute of Stress, their research states 33% of people experience extreme stress, 77% of people think stress is impacting their physical health, and 73% of people express that their mental health is affected.

Almost 50% of people have sleep problems as a result of stress because stress sends signals to different parts of the body to alert them, which leads to physical manifestations ranging from headaches to nausea and GI issues.

Understanding how your body reacts to stress is essential to positively dealing with it. Your brain cycles through a multitude of emotions, and your body has to decipher which feelings it has to respond to. 

What are some of the physical symptoms you may experience with stress?

  • Aches and pains
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Stomach problems: nausea, loss of appetite, diarrhea or constipation
  • Chest pain, increased heart rate
  • Low energy
  • Insomnia
  • A clenched jaw or other muscle tension/tightness
  • Getting sick more often

What are the emotional or mental symptoms you may experience with stress?

  • Constant worrying
  • Feeling frustrated, moody, or upset
  • Feeling overwhelmed or a lack of control
  • Difficulty relaxing
  • Scattered, racing thoughts

We all react to stress differently, so become mindful of how you respond and what symptoms you experience. Scientific studies have proved there’s a correlation between long-term stress and the development of severe mood and mental health issues. An American Psychological Association study states two-thirds of people regularly experience many physical symptoms of stress and psychological symptoms.

It’s vital to discover the root cause of your stress and check if you have any biomedical imbalances, especially with your GI and adrenal functioning, neurotransmitters, and vitamin deficiency that can exacerbate stress so that you can manage stress and begin to recover. Stress tells your brain to send specific signals to parts of your body. Learning how your body is functioning and if you have enough of the proper vitamin levels to support your adrenal system is crucial in getting a handle on overcoming stress. Everyone’s triggers are different, and everyone’s biomedical functioning is different. 

Being mindful of your current wellness of mind and body is essential to figuring out what may have caused your everyday stress levels. If you’ve been under a lot of pressure at home, school, or work, have bills piling up, are having trouble with a relationship, or are concerned about the upcoming holidays or special events, you may feel the way you do because of stress.

Here’s a protocol to explore that supports your adrenal system and provides the necessary vitamins that get depleted with stress; discuss this with your medical doctor. You need approval from your doctor before starting any new supplement protocol.

You must become your best health advocate and be empowered with the knowledge to reach optimal health. No one can do this for you except yourself. Making your health your number one priority is crucial to achieving total wellness of mind and body. If not now, then when? It is better to be proactive than reactive to disease. Unfortunately, too many are not feeling their best, settling on just getting by. Gain insight and take charge of your health by finding out how your body functions and following your healthy lifestyle factors to get your body in balance and achieve total wellness.

Becoming more mindful of how you feel throughout the day and the lifestyle factors you make along with your food and water intake can provide valuable insight. You are here for a reason, and to accomplish all you want to do and experience in life, you must feel your best!
