Stress is the rate of wear and tear on the body as a result of anxiety, worry, or exhaustion; from difficult or challenging situations.:

5 Stress is the rate of wear and tear on the body as a result of anxiety, worry, or exhaustion; from difficult or challenging situations. Definition of Stress:

Prolonged Stress::

6 Prolonged Stress: A difficult or intense experience, which, if prolonged, could cause irritation and/or damage to the nervous system.

Stress can be brought on by::

7 Stress can be brought on by: Job Money Family Relationships Health Children Junk food Medical drugs Economy

Hans Selye, M.D., an early researcher, documented two stages a person normally goes through in response to stress.:

Slide9:

9 When exposed to danger or stress, the body’s “fight or flight” defense mechanisms are activated. This is the Alarm Stage.

Slide10:

10 If the body successfully adapts to, or resists the stress, it then returns to normal. This is the Resistance Stage.

Slide11:

11 If the body fails to deal with the stress, it enters the Exhaustion Stage.

In the Exhaustion Stage the nervous system gets stuck in a faulty pattern. This causes a slow but steady secretion of hormones… like the drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet. :

12 In the Exhaustion Stage the nervous system gets stuck in a faulty pattern. This causes a slow but steady secretion of hormones… like the drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet.

This constant leak of stress hormones, primarily from the adrenal glands, cause: :

13 This constant leak of stress hormones, primarily from the adrenal glands, cause: Poor digestion Decreased blood flow to the heart Weak immune system; lowered white blood cells Less oxygen to the cells

Slide14:

14 To see how we can correct this, we first need a little anatomy lesson.

Slide15:

15 Within your body you have two Controlling Systems The Endocrine System & The Central Nervous System

Slide16:

16 Endocrine Glands – produce hormones These systems control and regulate all the other systems. Central Nervous System – produces nerve impulses

The Endocrine System:

17 The Endocrine System Glands in your body produce various Hormones

The Adrenal Glands:

18 The Adrenal Glands Deal with Stress and Emergencies The Endocrine System

The Thyroid:

19 The Thyroid Regulates Metabolism The Endocrine System

The Pancreas:

20 The Pancreas Regulates Blood Sugar The Endocrine System

The Brain:

21 The Brain Your Life Force resides in your brain. This controlling energy flows down into the spinal cord as electrical / chemical impulses.

Gland Control Center:

22 Gland Control Center The Hypothalamus portion of the brain controls your Endocrine Glands.

Signals from the Brain travel down the spinal cord…:

23 Signals from the Brain travel down the spinal cord…

Slide25:

25 This brain/body connection is the key to proper communication, proper chemistry, and proper function.

Now, let’s add some STRESS:

…your Adrenal Glands get the signal, and they produce 3 main ‘stress’ hormones::

30 …your Adrenal Glands get the signal, and they produce 3 main ‘stress’ hormones:

Slide31:

31 Cortisol: Raises blood sugar and halts the immune response. Adrenaline: Stimulates the heart muscles Norepinephrine: Inhibits digestion, increases heart activity.

PANIC! Your body enters The Alarm Stage:

32 PANIC! Your body enters The Alarm Stage With an instant boost of energy, you can either fight or run. Chances are… you run!

Slide33:

33 You finally stop running and look around. The bear is gone. Everything calms down and your body returns to it’s relaxed Resistance Stage.

But… what if the stress overwhelms your body?:

Any of these three stresses can lead to … The Exhaustion Stage! :

39 Any of these three stresses can lead to … The Exhaustion Stage!

The primary symptoms of Exhaustion Stage Stress are::

40 The primary symptoms of Exhaustion Stage Stress are: Headaches Fatigue Pain and tension in the neck, shoulders or low back Irritability Sleep problems Allergies and sinus problems Digestive trouble

Emotional Balance:

49 Emotional Balance Skilled chiropractic adjustments in the lower back will help balance the adrenal gland by normalizing the nerve flow to that gland.

Emotional Balance:

50 Emotional Balance Natural Adrenal Support Supplements might be needed temporarily to help strengthen the weakened glands.

Emotional Balance:

51 Emotional Balance Chiropractic adjustments in the upper neck will restore the neurologic pattern back to a safe and healthy rhythm.

Chemical Balance – 1. Liver Detox Cleanse :

52 Chemical Balance – 1. Liver Detox Cleanse While Chiropractic Adjustments may relieve some of your stress symptoms, many people need to go through a detoxification program, consisting of specific supplements designed to cleanse the liver while following a strict diet. This usually lasts about 10 days.

Chemical Balance – 2. Heavy Metal Removal :

53 Chemical Balance – 2. Heavy Metal Removal Some people may have to use chelation or ionic treatments to rid their body of heavy metals built up from earlier vaccines and environmental pollution.

Mechanical Balance:

54 Mechanical Balance Here chiropractic excels like no other natural healing art. Correcting mechanical and structural distortions, primarily of the spine, is the key focus of Chiropractic .

63 Wellness Keeping your Nerve System and Spine in proper balance is the Chiropractic Lifestyle, and the most effective way to manage stress!

Summary:

64 Summary There are three types of stress we all have to deal with: Emotional, Chemical and Mechanical. When the body is overwhelmed, it enters the Exhaustion Stage, and sickness and disease is the inevitable result. We can’t avoid stress, we have to manage it better. Chiropractic adjustments are the best way to bring the body back into balance naturally.
