Stress and Energy Deficiency
Stress and Energy Deficiency, Stress and Energy Deficiency. When we think of stress it’s not just the emotional upheavals we all experience from time to time. Stress can also take on other forms most notably chemical and structurally which can rob the body of it’s vitality and leaving a person tired and run down. It may sound too simplistic to be of value but if a person’s skeletal frame is stressed in the standing posture it puts a heavy load on the spine in it’s fight against gravity. Leg and back muscles become fatigued due to their increased activity and the person can feel achy or tired without fully understanding why. Most chiropractors have an important understanding of body mechanics and can make corrections to the spine restoring the normal curves. By restoring proper posture to the body allows the bones in the middle of the back to more fully relax so the sympathetic nervous system is not always in a heightened state. This helps to allow relaxation to occur. Stress and Energy Deficiency can also come about due to poor diet . The brain is noted for being a glucose hog and requires a steady stream of protein when faced with increased mental activity. Diets high in carbohydrates, poor oils and junk food don’t give the body the building blocks it needs in it’s fight against stress. Organs such as the adrenals, kidneys and heart can become overtaxed and eventually enlarge following a period of exhaustion. Poor sleep, the inability to concentrate and burn out can all result. Depending on the severity of the symptoms some individual may require a thoroughly exam and workup to spot the source of their stress and health issues. However, there are some simple steps everyone can take to ensure they stay on the right path. Among these are daily exercise including stretching and a proper diet plan consisting of protein at least 2x’s a day.
