The influence of stress on your overall health E-mail
In this article I will briefly elaborate on what stress actually is and exactly what impact it can have on you as a person. The following articles will be on the treatment of stress according to Ayurveda.

The word "stress" is widely interpreted in different ways. Some statements indicate that "stress" is not only a negative meaning. This obviously depends on the definition of the word. In "Stress Concept" published his detailed publications, including those of the Canadian physician H. Selye has been the most known. According to Selye stress is a complex of non-specific physical changes that occur when someone with some power is subject. There are three distinct phases, namely:
The emergency phase in which no hormonal issue still occurs.
The stage of resistance where there is a marked increase of adrenal cortex hormones in the body and there is an elevated blood pressure.
Finally, shall enter the stage of exhaustion, the physical strength begins to decline. It will have the same stressors (eg bacteria, viruses, cold etc.) have more influence on the individual.

According to H. Selye, rightly referred to as the father of the stress concept is called, there is a distinction between Eustress and Distress. Eustress to life and even essential for life. Distress, however, would be life threatening and are responsible for disorder in life. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the TM and TM-Siddhi program, indicates that stress is the basis of all the suffering of mankind. It is clear that the Maharishi talks about "distress". Furthermore, the Maharishi about "Creative Intelligence", the basis of energy, focus and progress of mankind. This would be consistent with the concept Eustress, according to Selye. Thus we see that, although the terminology varies somewhat, the essence of the concept around stress corresponds to the different definitions.

The conclusion can be drawn is that psychosomatic diseases, adaptation diseases in which there is an excessive or inadequate stress reaction or stress condition as a result of indirect or direct active stressors. This is a adaptation syndrome, which is a series of phenomena that occur when humans or animals are exposed to the impact of trauma or injury, the stressor said. According to Professor J. Pelc stress is fully or partially identified by a temporary or permanent impairment of a physiological function, particularly muscle. It can be seen as a "germ" in various places in the body and the mind gives rise to diseases (R 3). Another format that is known to the concept of stress is mental stress and somatic stress, such as infections and / or tumors. The psychology is meant by a stress state where external and / or internal factors essential variables of a system beyond their limits (risk) are placed. It is also often cited that stress not only negative, but can be construed as a challenge.

Then there is a breakdown in "Hot Reactors" and "Cold Reactors". Hot Reactors are people who react to stress very strongly (overreaction). Stress is generally referred to a physiological abnormality on structural or material levels in the nervous system. This means that not only bad, unpleasant thoughts (psychological), but also a wound anywhere on the skin or internal organs (somatic) to stress is calculated. Once the normal physiological structure of mind or body is suspended (or threatened to be), there is therefore stress.

Stress affects directly the vegetative centers in the brains (in particular the hypothalamus, the limbic system and the pituitary) where numerous reactions in the various source systems and organs of the body.

The HPA axis plays in modern science a crucial role in stress physiology. This axis consists of the hypothalamus to the pituitary (pineal gland) and thus the adrenal gland (Adrenal gland) affects bark. The adrenal hormones adrenaline and cortisol are responsible for acute and chronic stress reactions.

Stress disturbs all physiological systems. It is increasingly clear that stress the main or the main cause of disease.

Some organic diseases that direct relationship with stress.
Hypertension and heart disease
Cardiovascular circulatoire diseases and deaths in the industrialized countries more people than all other causes of death combined. One of the theories on the pathogenesis of essential hypertension (hypertension due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors) is about the primary role of abnormalities in the central nervous system; probably done by abnormal psychological stimuli through the autonomous nerves. This conclusion is drawn as a result of the reduction of high blood pressure by ... behavior changes through TM and the beneficial effect of sedatives in many hypertension patients. It is increasingly clear that stress an important role in hypertension than previously was thought.

Alarm and vigilance reactions have many adverse effects on the heart and arteries. Both adrenaline and cortisol during stress to ensure an increased blood pressure, which in chronic cases can lead to permanent hypertension. Adrenaline and cortisol also bring about an increase in adhesion of platelets, which they sell it on the arterial wall together with cholesterol (cholesterol levels in the blood increased by cortisol). When these fats are hardening occurs a narrowing of the arteries. This will promote the development of atherosclerosis which is the beginning of a long agony. In extreme cases there may be thrombusvorming occur in the blood vessels and even embolisering to the peripheral organs. Adrenaline can also provide sudden vascular spasm. Both embolieën as sudden vascular spasm in the coronary circulation, the blood flow to the heart muscle fibers block, so that creates a lack of supply of oxygen and nutrients that can lead to angina pectoris.

In hypertension, the diastolic blood pressure increased during the resting phase as the heart relaxes not optimal, thus the flow through the coronary arteries so that the heart more vulnerable to other influences, eg a bacteria that can cause endocarditis. Despite the fact that the role of stress and related behavioral patterns are not yet statistically proven, the general said that a stressful life is related to an increased risk for coronary disease.

Immunological diseases.
Under the natural resistance means the complex of immune factors that an organism at its disposal when it (for the first time) with an agent comes into contact and thus no genotypic experience. This natural resistance is formed by the immune system. There are three lines of defense fall into the defense against incoming pathogens. These natural barriers will discuss it clearer that a normally functioning immune system should be able to prevent any germ to save. The influence of stress on the immune system is of great importance not only for bacterial, viral or parasitic diseases, but also in cancer development.

The immune system is able to repair itself when it gets this chance. If periods of stress followed by relaxation to restore the glands again, just like our skin is recovered from a wound. But persistent stress, chronic frustration or anxiety, months or years, the immune system so that we unrig even endanger lives. That is because the complications continue to grow.

Crohn's disease
Factors that may play a role in the development of this disease include autoimmune processes and insufficient cellular immunity. The manifestations of this disease are usually already present several years before the diagnosis can be made. The attacks are usually on or exacerbated by periods of physical or emotional stress and in general, these individuals tend to move away from dependency, hostility and depression (R11 p. 962). According to some researchers, this disease is psychosomatic, but being the emotional factors and only considered as a secondary cause for the outbreak of the activity. As previously discussed stress can strongly influence the immune system which may give rise to the disease here. There would indeed be spoken of a psychosomatic disease.

Bronchial asthma
Bronchial asthma is a disease characterized by attacks of (predominantly expiratory) dyspnoea at rest due to a diffuse bronchus obstruction which is caused by spasm of the bronchial muscles, edema of the bronchusslijmvlies and hypersecretie of bronchusslijm. The non-allergic incentive mechanisms are many psychological factors (emotions, fights, etc.). The mechanism is often coming on vagusreflexen through hyperventilation, deep inspiration, laughing, crying, screaming etc.

Direct psychological stimulation is also a possibility given that suggestion to an asthma attack can result.

In emotional situations, both autonomous influences (via smoothing interest Vagus fiber afférents in the absence of stimulation) and neuro-endocrine factors play a role in getting asthma attack. However, this can only be the case if the individual already has an existing bronchial hyperreactivity, which in turn may result from psychological instability.

Cancer is the general term for malignant neoplasms. It is now that their own cancer cells that have become upset. Causes include:
a. External factors: smoking, poor diet, asbestos, alcohol etc.
b. Mental disharmony, external factors are often helped by their attacks mutiny in their own camp. This is the case with mental disharmony (whether or not combined with physical disharmony). It is first disrupted the natural system which external factors (the aforementioned reasons) to exert more influence. In other words, before the external factors that come into force is the natural "vibration number" of the cell changed and therefore the external factor is there in his own disharmony involving joints. If this combined disharmony for a considerable period may continue to exist, it's likely that a chronic, unruly illness such as cancer occurs. Mental disharmony can result from such envy, jealousy, arrogance of, volatility, intolerance, intemperance, unjust criticism, stress in the individual and / or collective existence.

Most medical researchers can now agree that cancer cells in our body are produced, they are usually removed and destroyed by the natural immune surveillance system of the body.

These systems ensure that under normal circumstances, no tumor development.

It plays a lot of mental disharmony important primary role than previously was thought. It appeared that the period between the administration of a chemical carcinogen and carcinogenic transformation not only depends on the strength and dose of the carcinogen, but also on the admissibility (susceptibility) of the host. Unfortunately, it begins to seem that almost all the "fun" activities in life (eating, drinking, smoking, sexual promiscuity, drugs, etc.) a potential oncogenes risk with them.
