Listen in today to hear about the effects of stress on health. I review at the beginning the physiological effects of the stress response but then I go straight into the effects of stress on the body.
Again we must understand that the physiological changes associated with the acute stress response are absolutely necessary for survival in a stressful environment. However we were never designed to be under chronic stress. So what happens when we put our bodyminds in a chronically stressful situation? We force our bodyminds to adapt to that environment by producing a chronic stress response. We need to understand that this is not disease and is not pathological. The chronically stressful environment is pathological, NOT the body's response to it! So when we force our bodyminds to produce the physiological changes seen in the stress response chronically to keep us alive we are taxing our adaptability to the limit and physiological dysfunction results. - James Chestnut, D.C.
