Stress

LifeSource Vitamins

The popular idea of stress in relation to human health is often described as an unpleasant mental or emotional experience, as when people say they are "stressed out". This expression relates primarily to the idea of prolonged or sudden and intense stress, which can have unpleasant effects on the body, impairing the ability to function, and even harming health. However, the biological concept of stress is much more broadly defined as any challenge (physical or psychological) that requires an organism to adapt in a healthy manner. In other words, responses to stress can sometimes be of benefit when the organism is strengthened by the experience. Many health problems have been associated with various kinds of sudden or long-term stress, including alcohol abuse, asthma, chronic fatigue, erectile dysfunction, male infertility, fibromyalgia, headaches, heart disease, high blood pressure, indigestion, and many others. The discussion below focuses on reducing the effects of excessive, unwanted stress.

Treatment


Diet


Recommended Foods


Flax seed is a good source of fiber and alpha-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid) and is a major source of lignans that may influence hormone function. It can help reduce the blood pressure-elevating effect of mental stress and reduce stress-related changes in fibrinogen, a blood component associated with increased risk of heart disease. Eat a healthful diet filled with lean protein, fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains.


Foods to Avoid


Drinking alcohol can reduce feelings of stress, but using alcohol regularly in response to chronic stress or repetitive stress can lead to an unhealthy dependency.


Other recommendations


While cigarette smokers often describe their habit as relaxing, smoking is associated with increased stress levels, and stopping the habit eventually results in reduced feelings of stress. Exercise has long been thought to have potential benefits to mental health and stress reduction, however, exercise can be stressful when it is intense or competitive. People who improve their exercise habits develop changes in their mental attitudes that are associated with better resistance to stress.
