Stress accounts for up to 90% of all illnesses: heart disease, cancer and diabetes, and immunodeficiency. When you are stressed, the release of stress hormones (e.g., cortisol and estrogen) slows down the immune behaviour to conserve the body’s energy for fight or flight. Which in prehistoric times would be used for running away from the stressor, AKA that “saber-toothed tiger.”
Stress is a general term that, in part, causes the release of hormones. These hormones are so effective at compromising the immune system that physicians therapeutically provide recipients of organ transplants with stress hormones to prevent their immune system from rejecting the foreign implant.
The concept of the stress reaction
No matter what the specific cause of acute or chronic stress, stress will always affect three vital organ systems: the nerve system, the immune and reproductive system. Nowadays, stress is severe and chronic, which means internal systems are being affected.
A healthy energy-rich diet will significantly aid your internal needs. Because, it was found by Sapolsky’s group (Brooke, et al.,1998) that the nerve fiber toxicity caused by a viral protein lowers the energy production from within your nerve cells (mitochondria [ATP]) and that simply supplying the nerve with additional energy protects it from damage.
To boost your life energy and every system in your body, including your nerve system, regular care from a NetworkSpinal Chiropractor, like me, is a terrific choice.
