Stress

stressStress causes the whole body to function poorly, it causes an inflammatory response in the body, and all systems either over work and or under perform.

Adrenal Glands

The adrenal glands respond to stress by releasing cortisol, and adrenaline; the continuedover use of the adrenals causes a condition called “adrenal fatigue”. Adrenal fatigue decreases, causes thyroid and hormonal function to decline. Fatigue, muscle weakness, wake up tired, irritability, decreased sexual function, anxiety, and depression are signs and symptoms of adrenal fatigue.

Breathing techniques, hobbies, stress management courses, exercise, sleep, supplementing the adrenals, brain and thyroid help correct stress related conditions. The L3W program helps the body run more efficiently, which will help combat physiological, neurogenic and emotional stress.

There is no one organ/gland that works alone…Stress also affects the Gut>Brain>Immune system train.  These all work together, when excessive stress is forced on the body. The brain will start to have dysfunction due to psychological components and pathophysiological components. The brain will crave sugar and other substances to deal with the stress. In turn, the poor food choices will inflame the gut. When the gut is inflamed, the immune system starts to fail. The body goes into a vicious cycle until it fails and the patient gets sick.

Stress is definitely the hardest thing to correct on a patient. There is no adjustment or pill to help money problems, sickness, marital problems, work issues and family problems. Each individual has to try and construct their own stress dissolver. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

About Your Work Out

Work Outweights

The purpose of working out is to provide training loads that are effective in improving performance, reduce fat, increase strength, muscle density and give a person a feeling of well being.

The most common mistake is working out too much. Believe it or not, over training and not eating enough will reduce results and performance. The person should eat the right combination of food for them (Biochemical Type) 2+ hours before their workout.  Muscle fibers get micro tears during the proper workout. Eating protein after the workout helps replenish and fuel the muscle. And the most important component is Rest. Rest repairs the muscle tissue and allows growth. Over training does not allow the rest and repair. So muscle development might be hindered without the proper amount of healing.

Intense exercise has cardiovascular rewards but it also stresses the system. The physiological effects are as follows:  Increased Cortisol, Dysglycemia, amino acid deficits, mineral deficits, immune stress (adrenal glands), can create catabolic metabolism, makes you prone to injury and can decrease metabolic efficiency.

New Cardio EquipmentWe are in favor of a moderate exercise regime, moderate workouts lower fat thermostat, improve sugar metabolism, increase fat burning enzymatic activity in muscle, improve oxygenation of tissue, increase bone density and muscle to fat ratio, reduce fluid retention and stress hormones.

Our recommendation is a 4 day workout regime (2 days on, 1 day off; then 2 days on, followed by 2 days off), which includes weight training. The weight training should alternate muscle groups per workout; (example:  Chest/triceps, biceps/legs, and shoulder/back). We advise an 8-12 repetition protocol to build muscle density (45-75mins) followed by 20 minute maximum cardio 2x your resting heart rate. This is a diabetic workout, but we feel this workout is best for everyone.

Thyroid

Adrenal fatigue needs to be treated before addressing the Thyroid. If the adrenals are not producing enough cortisol, T4 will not produce T3.  Adrenal fatigue, Hypothalamus and Pituitary issues usually cause Thyroid dysfunction.
