Despite the differing stresses in our lives the body’s reaction to stress is universal. A ‘fight or flight’ response is triggered by the adrenal glands releasing adrenaline into the bloodstream, causing the heart to beat faster, dilation of the respiratory passages and raised blood pressure. Digestion is interrupted as blood flows to the muscles and blood sugar increases to provide energy to ‘fight or flee’. This response is primal and was appropriate in situations that demanded an immediate physical response such as escaping from danger. However, today we are often required to deal with chronic stress from which we are unable to escape. These constant demands result in the physical and mental symptoms of stress, such as exhaustion, nervous disorders and lowered immune function. A wide range of disorders can often be attributed to stress, such as colds and flu’s, allergies, menstrual cycle irregularities, asthma, eczema and other skin conditions.
