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.

Gut Health

Woman's Fingers Touching her body parts, heart shaped fingersApproximately 500 species of bacteria, as well as many species of yeast and other organisms, live in the human gastrointestinal tract and make up the “gut flora”. These “friendly” bacteria are vital for good digestion and the health of the intestines in general. You may have noticed food products like yogurt and acidophilus milk that contain these bacteria. It is becoming more common for them to be added, just as vitamins and minerals are frequently added.

Illness can occur when the amount of friendly bacteria is reduced and the other organisms are able to increase their numbers and become the majority. There are a number of factors that can disrupt the balance of organisms in the intestines and lead to overgrowth of the less desirable species. The most important factors are:

  • Antibiotic use (abuse)
  • Use of the birth control pill
  • Use of other hormones, especially immunosuppressants like steroids
  • Diet, especially one high in sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Stress

Conditions often caused by dysbiosis include Irritable Bowel Syndrome, acne, food allergies, Chronic Fatigue and depression. But you can help repopulate the good bacteria by eating foods that contain natural, healthy bacteria, including yogurt and acidophilus milk. You should take a daily probiotic supplement.

The gut has three primary functions:

  • Digestion of foods and conversion into vitamins
  • Absorption of nutrients
  • Prevention of toxins and pathogens from entering the body

If one of these systems (Gut/ Brain/ Immune) is taxed, the other two will eventually be affected.

Learn how to eat the right food combination to cause the least amount of stress in the Gut, through the L3W wellness system. This will improve immune function, and Gut performance.
