Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern.

Can childhood asthma come back from prolonged stress? Is adrenal fatigue possible? How to strengthen adrenals?

Can childhood asthma come back from prolonged stress? Is adrenal fatigue possible? How to strengthen adrenals?

Yes. No. GoodHabits?: Childhood asthma can come back, but if one is no longer a child, then it is just called asthma. The other way of looking at it is: the childhood asthma never completely left. Asthma symptoms come and go, so it's not surprising to come back. Adrenal Fatigue is a name some people use to describe some types of symptoms, but is not a real disorder. The symptoms are real, the "disorder" is not real. ...Read more

Unhealthy lifestyle working online from home 16 hr/day, will it causes body aches?

Unhealthy lifestyle working online from home 16 hr/day, will it causes body aches?

Absolutely: Something tells me that you already know the answer to this question. Sitting in front of a computer 16 hours per day is not good for your body. We are not meant to sit for hours on end. We are meant to get up and move. If this is your work, you should consider some form of activity and exercise to counter the effects of sitting so much. Even changing to a standing desk will help. ...Read more

Can muscle wasting make you significantly weaker? I'm finding my physical job much harder after weight loss due to poor nutrition  went fr 167 to 150

Energy deficit: You need to make sure that you are giving your muscles enough fuel. At your weight and doing physical work you should be eating around 200 grams of carbohydrates per day for energy. Then you also need about 80-90 grams of high quality protein and as much healthy fat (like olive and coconut oil) as your body wants. ...Read more

Parathyroid surgery recmnded.Will it improve metabolic rate?Will I have energy for gym? I'm teacher exhausted by 6pm.Off gymroutine. Due to fatigue.

Parathyroid: The hypercalcemia of hyperparathyroidism can cause kidney stones, bone loss and bone pain. Some people also complain of other, somewhat vague neurologic symptoms, which sometimes improve after surgery. However, parathyroid does not affect metabolic rate as thyroid does. If you need surgery, go for it, and then address your symptoms with your doctor afterwards. ...Read more

Yes, but: It would be potentially dangerous and possibly illegal depending upon the source of the amphetamines. Why put something in your body that is harmful and can potentially kill you? Also get off the armour thyroid, which is ground up pig tissue and have your doctor put you on brand name T4 replacement, which is better and safer. ...Read more

What seems to influence high blood pressure most? 30 lbs over weight, eating bad, lack of exercise, or stress. Looking for which one to tackle first.

Exercise to lower bp: Exercise and diet would be my first choice. It's up to you which one you believe you can achieve first. No time in your busy day then choose diet. Time for exercise, then i would choose that. Exercise is far more likely to improve your stress level than any change in diet. ...Read more
