The first person to develop a theory of stress was Hans Selye, a pioneering Hungarian-Canadian endocrinologist, in 1935. He experimented with rats by placing different types of physical stressors on them and noticed that they always had the same physiological response - atrophied (degenerated) lymphatic organs and bleeding gastric ulcers, which developed over time. He called this the 'general adaptation syndrome' (GAS) and stated 'stress is the nonspecific response of the body to any demand made upon in' and each new situation requires adjustment/adaptation. There are 3 stages to GAS: *ALARM STAGE: increased sympathetic nervous system activity (fight or flight response) - noradrenaline secretions and up-regulated cortisol. *RESISTANCE STAGE: the body adapts to the stressor, the symptoms disappear and body metabolism returns to normal. *EXHAUSTION STAGE: adrenals are enlarged, lymph organs degenerate and gastric ulcers develop. If the ongoing stress is not addressed the body loses its ability to cope and eventually death can ensue.
Thankfully there are lots of things we can do for stress. My approach is to firstly address the underlying causes. Then using herbal and nutritional medicine I look at supporting the nervous system, modulating the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) Axis and nourish depleted adrenals.

Such a rough night in the office. And man... my boss is a B... JK... I’m the boss.
I run my business my way. And I also love my little office. Have you ever wanted to know how you could make a full time income from home? Or even wanted to know how to just make a little side income? Maybe wanted to pay that car payment, or have extra spending money? The best part... you can do it all from your phone in your workout clothes or PJs. Or whatever you want to wear. Hell, you can do this business anywhere that you have WiFi. The possibilities are endless.
Send me a message if you want to know more. I also am hosting an info group where I will explain all the details. No obligation. Just info for those of you who are curious how it all works. Drop and emoji if you want in the group. And if you’re shy.. send me a pm.
