Natural solutions for adrenal fatigue and chronic stress


Chronic physical, emotional or psychological stress can cause serious health problems like, asthma, depression, migraines, heart disease and cancer. Unfortunately, as Western medicine has evolved, the focus has been on more 'sophisticated' testing procedures without much emphasis on effective solutions. So, why are so many people complaining about stress these days?

Don't ignore emotional stress! We place so much importance on 'getting things done' - that we forget the simple (stress-free) pleasures in life like, reading a book, taking a walk at the beach (or park) and just being kind to another human being. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Autumn Frandsen will lay out a plan of action for all those suffering from adrenal fatigue and chronic stress symptoms.

Making the connection between emotional trauma and degenerative disease

Peter A. Levine, Ph.D., an expert on trauma, says that trauma happens "when our ability to respond to a perceived threat is in some way overwhelming." For many people, the noticeable symptoms of being stressed out include: numbness, hyperarousal, hypervigilance, nightmares, flashbacks, helplessness and avoidance behavior. The physical effects of chronic stress, whether conscious or not, tend to be rapid heart rate, tense muscles, unusual weight gain (or loss), sleep disorders and a sleuth of chemical imbalances that trigger inflammatory-related diseases.
