Stress Causes Sign and Symptoms at Every Level of the Body

This is a quick look at what stress can produce in the body psychologically, symptomatically and physically in a very understated list.  Remember there are three phases of stress identified, 1) alarm, 2) resistance and 3) exhaustion. 

Psychological Stress Symptoms

  •  Anxiety
  •  Sleeping problems
  •  Depression
  •  Anger outbursts
  •  ADD
  •  Hyperactivity
  •  Agitation

Adrenaline Over Activity

  •  Headaches
  •  Colitis / IBS
  •  High blood pressure
  •  Muscle spasms
  •  "Panic attacks"
  •  Eczema
  •  Ulcers

Physical Stress Symptoms

  •  Fibromyalgia
  •  Chronic fatigue
  •  Infections
  •  Allergies
  •  Autoimmune conditions
  • Inability to hold a spinal correction
  • Chronic pain

I think it is safe to say everyone is in one of these three stages and exhibiting symptomatic expression at one level or another.  We are being "stressed out" at all six levels of interference: 1) Structural, 2) Emotional, 3) Nutritional, 4) Electromagnetic Pollution, 5) Allergies/Sensitivities and 6) Toxic Accumulation.

The body is a complex of web-like interacting systems and not isolated in any way.  Therefore, digestion is important and is linked to the immune system and the nervous system etc.  For one simple example, we must think of Total Probiotics, Total Enzymes and Hypo D (if the digestive system is compromised) when we think of balancing stress in the body and not just DSF.  Another example is that heavy metals may be compromising all of the systems of the body and must be addressed before long term healing can take place.
