What Should Happen During Stress

An individual is faced with a stressor.

A complex hormonal cascade ensues, and the adrenals secrete cortisol.
Cortisol & Adrenaline prepare the body for a fight-or-flight response by flooding it with glucose, supplying an immediate energy source to large muscles.

Cortisol & Adrenaline inhibit insulin production in an attempt to prevent glucose from being stored, favoring its immediate use.
Cortisol & Adrenaline narrow the arteries while the epinephrine increases heart rate, both of which force blood to pump harder and faster.

  • Should only be produced in extreme circumstances
  • Response to imminent danger
  • A shooting sensation up the spine,Increased heart rate, Instantly alert
  • Ready for action
  • Enables you to take immediate physical action without thinking
  • The individual addresses and resolves the situation.
  • Hormone levels return to normal

Chronic Stress

Adrenaline & Cortisol become depleted through over stimulation

Adrenal glands are diminished

Difficulty getting out of bed for more than a few hours per day.

With each increment of reduction in adrenal function, every organ and system in your body is more profoundly affected.

Changes occur in your carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism, fluid and electrolyte balance, heart and cardiovascular system, and even sex drive.
