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.

Sleep

Adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle, and can benefit your heart, weight, mind, and more.

Sleep isn’t exactly a time when your body and brain shut off. While you rest, your brain stays busy, overseeing a wide variety of biological maintenance that keeps your body running in top condition, preparing you for the day ahead.

Your sleep schedule, bedtime habits, and day-to-day lifestyle choices can make an enormous difference to the quality of your nightly rest. Everyone should get a minimum of 8 hours of sleep. The first four hours are responsible for body recovery; the last four hours are responsible for mental recovery. You should eat at least 2 hours before sleep, the longer before bedtime, the better. If the person eats poorly for dinner or dessert, they will have sugar spikes and insulin surges, which will have the adrenal glands release cortisol through the night. The body will not get the restorative rest needed and you will wake up tired. The body will crave the caffeine and sugar first thing in the morning and then the whole process will start again.

Sleep is the biggest anti-inflammatory, that’s why the body feels more comfortable when is cooler in the room at night.

The health benefits of a good night’s sleep are: Memory and brain function improvement, more stamina and better performance, reduce stress and improve quality of life.

Some of the consequences of sleep deprivation can include: Decreased performance and alertness, memory and cognitive impairment, stress, occupational or automobile injury, heart disease, diabetes and psychiatric problems. It is also very hard to lose weight without restorative sleep.

The L3W program usually gets great results with sleep quality. It normally takes only 2-3 days to improve a patient’s sleep.
