Health Corner: Stress, The 5th Pillar
The four pillars of health are largely within our control - sleep, hydration, nutrition, and exercise. Maintaining healthy levels of each will reduce the risk of today’s Top 3 Killers.*
Stress is often cited as a fifth controllable factor. Definitions vary. One source describes stress as "a state of mind that manifests as a physical response.” Another professional defines it in broader terms: “Stress, when not an interruption of homeostasis, is typically self-created...poor diet, poor sleep, lack of exercise, overwork, etc. Stress management can often be broken down into environmental changes, and/or behavioral changes.”
"Continuous stress puts all of us in an unhealthy state that will change even the DNA we pass on to the next generation," says Dr Sharon Moalem in the introduction to her book The DNA Restart: Unlock Your Personal Genetic Code to Eat for Your Genes. Slow living is the 5th Pillar of her program, the antidote to stress.
Stress can arise from physical overwork as well. While adequate levels of nutritious food, water, rest, and exercise help reduce mental stress, Functional Medicine practitioner Chris Kresser, M.S., L.Ac. cautions Why You May Need To Exercise Less. Mike Robertson, M.S. and co-owner of IFAST Gym in Indianapolis, agrees: “So many people these days are stressed out, on the go, can’t relax, can’t shut down,” says Robertson. “And then they go to the gym and stress their bodies more with high-intensity workouts…(producing) a host of anxiety-like symptoms: racing heart, sweaty palms, difficulty sleeping, and an inability to sit still or focus.”
Adrenal fatigue, chronic sleep deprivation, immune disorders, and other imbalances make stress management a more complex issue but not insurmountable. It’s worth your time to uproot this killer and reclaim your healthy birthright.
As always, YMMV.**
