Stress Awareness & Warnings

“A healthy person has a thousand wishes, a sick person only one.”    Stress is often considered to be normal, but what starts off as normal, can very easily turn nasty.   A certain amount of stress in the form of exercise, excitement, fresh challenges and life saving reactiveness is all good, so when does stress turn into something else?

Whatever harms your health and vitality is wise to be aware of.   If you feel constantly tired, overwhelmed or emotionally reactive; stress chemicals flood your body to fight, flight or freeze.   When the perceived ‘threat’ is over, the body will do everything it can to re-establish balance.   However, if the threat is workload, challenging relationships, time pressures, inner conflicts or fear, these will compound over time and threaten your quality of life.   Life events are not in themselves a stress.  Awareness is a state of mind that can be developed and improved.  A ‘perceiver’ who is in a state of moment by moment awareness (as oppose to reactiveness) interprets a situation, with a choice to respond with calm or stress.  Setbacks and even a rejection can be perceived as a stressful frustration or a challenge.  Uncomfortable/fearful/stressful emotions cannot be processed if resisted, so if a person avoids and represses a painful emotion,  it can become stuck in the body and mind, and act as a future stress trigger.

Warning:  If stress becomes constant or extreme, symptoms of adrenal fatigue are lowered immune system, hormonal imbalances, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, ME, MS, IBS and mood swings.   If the thyroid system becomes over strained…it is irreversible.

Do any of these feel familiar?  Feeling fatigued or exhausted… snapping at your loved ones…feeling that you need to defend yourself all the time…blaming others…feeling defensive and constantly angry…feeling pressured with exams, expectations or work… feeling conflicted or struggling with indecision…dealing with a number of life challenges, all at once…transitioning a divorce or loss…moving house…work conditions or hours feel too much and conflict with family values…always feeling there is not enough time…are a self confessed perfectionist!…suffering a health symptom or addiction that hurts your feelings, causes shame and low self-esteem …

Break the cycle of mood-swings, stress & hormonal-imbalances

Hormonal Imbalances:    Do you snap or shout at your loved ones?   Do you wage war or erupt like a volcano more often than you’d prefer?

Mood swings:  If your moods ignite with gusto, it could be that pushed down emotions such as anger, guilt or shame are the ‘hidden’ cause.  Fatigue, time pressures are also stressors that increase the likelihood of these outbusts.

Break the cycle of food cravings, too much sugar and stress

Food cravings  Cortisol is released in response to stress triggers.    A craving for sugar creates a cycle that eventually fatigues the adrenals with more mood swings.

Too much sugar causes blood sugar level fluctuations that crash energy casing further food cravings.

Too much stress creates cortisol, with any excess of this hormone being converted to sugar.   At this point, weight gain, skin and digestive sensitivities may arise.  Further stress causes food cravings and fatigue … so the cycle of hormonal imbalance continues….

Solution   With a willingness to change, you can break free from stressful behaviours.

If  you desire a new ’empowered’ way of living with choice over your moods, call +44(0)1843 846947, or call/text +44(0)7836 635233.   I’d love to help you.  Suzi x

 

 

Can Stress cause IBS?

Do you have IBS symptoms? Irritible Bowel Syndrome is a label used to describe bloating, stomach discomfort, constipation or diarrhoea.

Stress   IBS can be caused or aggravated by eating in a stressful frame of mind.  Enzymes are needed to digest your food and enzymes are blocked by the stress hormone cortisol.  Therefore stress leads to poor digestion, food intolerance, IBS and other imbalances.

Good feelings helps to create calm digestion.  Most people can think back to a ‘happy holiday’ with relaxed, calm feelings and remember that they were able to eat and drink all sorts of different foods that they would not have been able to at home.

If the gut has a memory so you can see how food intolerances, sensitivities, stomach bloating can be linked to stress.

Can you reset your gut memory? 

Definitely.

How to create a calm comfortable gut?

1.  Re-programme gut memory with happy, calm feelings

2.  Re-programme your beliefs that support happy, calm feelings

3.  Re-programme your ‘triggers’ and ‘behaviours’ so that you can relax and enjoy a healthy, balanced lifestyle that includes anything with good feelings.
