Stress and Medicine
Stress is an everyday part of ourexistence. We become exposed to stress in various situations.However, some of these are reasonable and come and go, such as whenwe are anxious before an important event or some kind of a similaroccasion. In these cases, our adrenaline levels rise due toexcitement, our heartbeats increase in frequency, therefore speedingup our blood circulation and numerous hormonal and bodily actionstake place, making us less prone to injuries and more capable ofavoiding potential life-threatening situations. This reaction is apart of our old animal instinct, when we were in danger of being hurtphysically much more often than we are today. Anyway, the occurrenceof this situation now and then is acceptable since as soon as thestressful moment passes, our adrenaline levels drop and we return tonormal. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sometimes, whenwe are overexposed to stress too often, for many different reasons,our adrenaline levels are high most of the time. This causes us to bein a state of over-awareness constantly, worried and frustrated,expecting some kind of an impending doom or other bad things tohappen, being alert for no reason. Being in this “fight or flight”state of our organism too often triggers the creation of ulcers,onset of cancers and many other problems. This is due to the factthat most of our blood gets transferred to our muscles instead ofcirculating throughout our body, supplying us with sufficient amountsof oxygen. Many other processes in our body are jeopardized this way,and, in the long run, stress causes it to deteriorate. Thus, we needto fight stress by all means necessary, enabling our resting mode tobe triggered again by our nervous system, helping our body torecuperate and stop any diseases or other health problems.
