This is an 8 part series on Stress Management

Here’s PART 1

Let’s start with a definition…..

Stress is the sum of all the biological reactions to any adverse stimulus [ physical, mental/emotional , chemical ], internal or external that tends to disturb an organisms HOMEOSTASIS. Homeostasis is the stability of normal physiological states of an organism.

Why do we need to learn how to manage stress for ourselves & our children?

Because medical research is now suggesting that up to 80% of all illnesses are stress related!

Here are the most common stress-related conditions/symptoms that I see in my practice: insomnia, anxiety, depression, headaches, spinal pain ( neck, lower back ), muscle tension, eating disorders, bowel problems ( constipation ), suppressed immune function, skin disorders ( eczema, psoriasis ), hormone imbalances, high blood pressure, fatigue, addictions & substance abuse, & stomach disorders ( indigestion, heartburn, ulcers ).

If you have even one of these, then you are most likely not managing your stress effectively.

Part 2 – next week – will explain how stress effects the human body.
