Stress & Your Adrenals

Dismantling the blocks of Relationship Stress.

I don’t know about you, but there have been many times in my life when I found myself oddly out of sorts and physically off-kilter. I looked in all sorts of places for the cause, from hormones to diet, to life events. All were unconvincing. What was setting me on edge?

Finally I read that stress is often the cause of mental and physical strain and even illness, and the stress may be completely unrecognized. I decided to do some research and was amazed at the result. I was ignoring lots of stress that had built up under my awareness since my divorces, and the event that made me a widow.  I discovered some effective remedies, and I’ll share them with you.

In the body, stress is related to the adrenal glands. Those glands produce adrenaline of course, which is associated with the fight-or-flight response arising under stress. Fight or flight is from a couple different places. It’s from the survival brain, the emotional brain, and from the adrenals. Those glands also produce cortisol, which is released in response to stress and lowers immune response. So right there you have both the mental and the physical impacts of stress on your body.

When you’re stressed, it’s scientifically proven that you may experience any of these symptoms:

  • Allergies
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Frequent Colds
  • Balance Disorders/Vertigo
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Digestive issues (IBS/acid reflux)
  • Skin Irritations (psoriasis/eczema)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety/Fear/Worry
  • Irritability/Hyperactivity
  • Poor Concentration
  • Racing or Unwanted Thoughts
  • Sleep Disorders/Fatigue
  • Dependencies (smoking/alcohol)
  • Weight Gain/Weight Loss
  • Arthritis
  • Heart and Organ Disease
  • and much more!

How much stress is in your life?  Have you been through one of these life altering events? Take a look at these life stressors by rank:

Maybe like me, you see some things that are familiar. Here are the results of a recent review of life events causing major stress:

Death of a Spouse or Divorce: Nearly all people going through a death of a close loved one, or a divorce or break up, experience symptoms such as stress, low mood or swings, depression, and insomnia. Around 60 percent of people also suffer physical symptoms, which might include migraine, eczema or even back trouble — usually the result of muscular tension.

These adverse conditions naturally are going to lead to an emotional response, either anxiety or even depression. An emotional response can affect all the other parts of your life negatively. The way western medicine deals with anxiety and depression is to suppress a feeling, pushing it down and hiding it, or overriding it. That would be the pills, the anti-depressants and the rest.

So there’s the extreme emotion, there’s being emotional, and then there’s just suppressing it. In both cases, your emotions are way out of balance when going through a difficult relationship; it’s like the emotions both being suppressed and dominated, or the emotions running wild. A more long-term approach, rather than being dominated by emotion or pushing it all down, is to remove the effect it’s having, right? A way of bringing these two extremes into peace and harmony and the serene calm that comes from that place. So how to regain that balance?

How about a holistic approach? You can try things that range from something as simple as specifics known for their calming effects (see “Tips” section). Or you just might find your solution, as I did, in Quantum Activations.

First, If your adrenals are taxed, you overstimulated your nervous system, you can restore them and part of it is you making a commitment to living a lifestyle where you honor your adrenals. You can turn off the bings, the reminders, and the alarms on phones and electronics. What are you allowing?  Do you allow yourself to get worried and worked up?

We can completely remove the source of the problem. We don’t want to remove what you’ve learned. We want to remove the effect that it’s having on you, the impact, the energy that’s in your field, or the program that it’s in your field, so that you can live free, that you can live grounded, feeling confident. This is completely not about sealing things up, suppressing things, pushing things down. This is about uncovering things and removing them once and for all.

What are the adrenals good for, and why should you be conerned anyway?  Great question! They regulate your hormones!  And that includes testosterone which women require for sexual pleasure. Without testosterone we have no sex drive. Now if you’re already separated or divorced you may not be concerned about that, but what if you eventually start to date again?

What about if you just want to get out of bed? Or be active during your day? People struggling with their weight require it to build muscle instead of fat.

Want more proof you require healthy adrenals? Stress is also responsible for lowering your life force which sets Aging in motion. Yes, it gets that bad, and most people are unaware of the cause.

Stress can be removed!  Yes!  I’ve built it into my Divorce Detox program exclusively for people who are right now going through, or have experienced a divorce or break-up within the last couple of years. Read about it on this page:
