How Outside Stress Disrupts Your Inner Life

Yes, you can make positive change and make room for healing. 

 Bruce Lipton very eloquently explains how the body cannot be in a state of growth and defense at the same time. I encourage you to check out his videos and newsletters online.  He is a great story teller who can convey meaningful ways to build up your life. 

So, let me delve into the topic and see how I do....

There are times when stressful events happen in our lives and the body has to shift into self preservation mode.  There is heightened awareness of a possible life threatening issue that becomes top priority to the brain and body.

Our problem is that we let everyday modern drama creep into our lives on overload.  They are not real threats, but the body still perceives them as real.  The adrenal glands jump into action with stress hormones directing the heart to ramp up blood supply to the arms and legs.

During this time, blood is no longer readily available to the prefrontal cortex of your brain or your abdomen.  This means your thinking and problem solving energies are drained as well as your digestion and immune functions,

The body cannot do both at the same time.  The calm routines of digestion are put on hold while the motor system of the body goes into fight or flight.  

When the fight or flight response is prolonged, we can hit a point of exhaustion because there has been no period of restoration.  

If you recall a past blog, I mentioned that you can't put out a fire with water dripped  from an eye dropper.  It's just not enough.

Step One is to remove the stress.
       Chemical, Mechanical, and Emotional ---all 3

Understandably, if you have a tack stuck in your toe, you have to stop standing on it before you can remove it and apply a bandage.  

If your stress is like the tack, please remove it.  
The healing response is better off without the interference.  
You cannot be in a state of growth and defense at the same time.

Your chiropractic is much more effective when the outside stress is reduced.  Your body's cells are much more receptive when they are given adequate nerve energy and nutrient energy. 

Let's talk about your stress so we can ramp up the ways we can move your brain, feed your brain, and talk to your brain. 

Feed your nervous system and starve your stress.
