Stress is real life.

It is something we are all exposed to young or old, rich or poor, felt or not felt, present or past.

No not all stress is bad, in fact short term stress is essential to optimal health.

Stress is positive when it forces us to adapt and thus to increase the strength of our adaptive mechanisms. This action-enhancing stress, for example, gives an athlete the competitive edge they need to perform.

Stress is negative when it exceeds our ability to cope, fatigues body systems and causes behavioral or physical problems.

This is the chronic stress that sneaks up on us and takes away the life we once knew. This is the stress that breaks us down and has been proven over and over to be at the root of all disease and illness.

The relationship between stress and illness is not straight forward. There are a wide range of factors that determine our own personal susceptibility to stress. These include, well…just about everything you have been exposed to (physically, mentally, emotionally, nutritionally, physiologically) from the moment you were conceived to this present moment right here and right now.

In these experiences we develop coping mechanisms, we develop our personality (Gabor Mate defines personality as a defensive structure we develop as a way of dealing with our pain). Our personality has everything to do with our ability to respond to stress in our lives and ultimately makes the difference in our susceptibility to illness and our overall well-being.

Stress is an epidemic and its killing us…

One study showed emotional stress as a major contributing factor to the six leading causes of death in the United States: cancer, coronary heart disease, accidental injuries, respiratory disorders, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide.

According to statistics from Meridian Stress Management Consultancy in the U.K, almost 180,000 people in the U.K die each year from some form of stress-related illness.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the United States estimates that stress accounts for about 75% of all doctors visit. This involves an extremely wide span of physical complaints including, but not limited to headache, back pain, heart problems, upset stomach, stomach ulcer, sleep problems, tiredness and accidents.

According to Occupational Health and Safety news and the National Council on compensation of insurance, up to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related complaints.

Stress is real and so are the effects it has on us.
