Stress and methods of struggle
In medicine, stress is talked about when events occurring in a person’s life suppress their ability to cope.
A stressful event can be something good (promotion, new job, housewarming, marriage) or bad (loss of job, loss of a loved one, divorce, threat to financial position or health), but in any case, a mental reaction can lead to a person out of balance.
Each of us sometimes faces such a mental challenge throughout his life; in such cases, we sometimes act with confident equanimity, and sometimes we are lost in indecision.
Our reaction to stress corresponds not so much to the grandeur of the event as to how we perceive it ourselves: for example, in a small child, the loss of a favorite toy causes bitter sobs; a teenager can become furious due to an unsuccessful hairstyle and seemingly calmly accept the death of a loved one.
Typical reactions to stress include anxiety, depression, flight (including withdrawal, drunkenness, extramarital affairs), anger, and fear.
Under stress, we become restless, irritable, tired, constantly in tension. We always want to sleep, or we are not able to sleep at all. We have an insatiable appetite, and we gain weight, or food does not attract us at all, and we lose weight.
We may even develop somatic symptoms, such as headache, joint and muscle pain, blurred vision, skin rashes, gastritis, ulcers, or other digestive disorders.
Whatever the stress, good or bad, emotional or physical (or both at the same time), its effect on the body has common features. The immune system suffers especially from stress. In a stressful state, people are more likely to become victims of infection, since the production of immune cells decreases markedly during periods of physical or mental stress.
Although you cannot change a stressful event (and if it is good, you don’t want to change it), you can better resist stress with proper nutrition and support for dietary supplements. The role of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional components in this case is to strengthen the immune system and compensate for stress-related deficiencies.
A well-formed diet promotes resistance to stress. Under stress, your body’s need for complete protein increases with regular protein.
We can assume that
Under stress in your diet, 35% of the calories should be in high-quality protein (satisfying the minimum requirements above), another 35% in fruits and vegetables with a low starch content and 30% in fats (20% are mono- or polyunsaturated oils; 10 % animal fats).
Under stress, the need for vitamin C (ascorbic acid) increases dramatically.
If you are not taking this vitamin all the time, start with one 500 milligram tablet daily. After a few days, take the same dose twice a day, then three times a day, four times a day. Keep in mind that adults under stress are often able to tolerate 4-
Group B vitamins can relieve stress symptoms such as depression, distraction, numbness, and tingling. Take 100 mg of B-complexx once or twice a day and, in addition, 500-1000 micrograms of vitamin B 12 (tablets under the tongue) once or twice a week.
Sugar and starch-like substances contribute to a decrease in the content of vitamins C and B in the body. Stop or dramatically reduce your intake of these substances, especially in stressful situations.
Neurocirculatory dystonia (NCD) is a disease of various etiologies, mainly of a neurogenic nature, developing as a result of adaptation disorders after a previous illness, mental trauma, overwork, negative influence of environmental factors: intoxication with industrial poisons, exposure to ionizing radiation, vibration, the presence of foci of chronic infection in the patient’s body .
As a result of the action of these factors, dysfunction of the hypothalamic-pituitary system occurs, leading to a violation of the body's adaptation to environmental changes. The most important prerequisite for the occurrence of pathology is a congenital predisposition to dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, its age-related restructuring in the puberty or menopause.
These violations, first of all, are manifested by changing weather conditions (atmospheric pressure, air humidity).
NDC can be accompanied by dysfunction of one or several body systems, most often as functional disorders of autonomic regulation from the cerebral cortex, subcortical structures of the reticular formation.
Clinically, NDC manifests itself in the form of cardialgia , cardiac arrhythmias, macroscopic and microcirculation, and other manifestations and is divided into 4 clinical types: cardiac, hypertensive, hypotensive, and mixed.
A significant role in the development of NCC, especially in childhood and adolescence, is played by nutritional disorders, past infectious diseases, and chronic infections of the nasopharynx.
Under the influence of etiological factors, the neurohormonal-metabolic regulation is disintegrated at the level of the cerebral cortex, limbic zone and hypothalamus, which, in turn, leads to dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, functional disorders of the endocrine glands and microcirculation system.
First of all, such patients develop asthenic syndrome. It manifests itself as a deterioration in physical condition (weakness or fatigue in the morning or gradually increasing towards the middle of the day, impaired coordination and accuracy of movements, etc.), decreased mood, decreased memory and volitional qualities, inability to concentrate, sleep disturbances. At the same time, in a prone position, patients feel better.
Patients with NDC are characterized by a high level of neuropsychiatric instability and difficulties in socio-psychological adaptation: headache, irritability, decreased ability to work, anxiety, suspiciousness, insecurity in their actions, a negative assessment of official and domestic prospects are often noted, which can be combined with increased self-conceit and egocentrism.
TREATMENT OF NEURO-CIRCULATOR DYSTONIA AND PREVENTION OF STRESS REACTIONS:
Sanitation of the oral cavity and nasopharynx.
Medications: sedatives ( diazepam , mebicar , grandaxin ), daily benzodiazepine tranquilizer ( hydazepam ), antipsychotics ( sonapax ), psychostimulants (glycine), decreased activity of the sympatho-adrenal system ( belloid ), drugs that improve cerebral circulation, vininapinozine .
Physiotherapy: iodine-bromine baths, exercise therapy, acupuncture, ozone therapy .
BASIC CORRECTION PROGRAM for neurocirculatory dystonia and stressful conditions using dietary supplement " Tiens ":
The first stage is the restoration of impaired metabolism and microcirculation of brain tissue.
1. "BIO-CALCIUM FOR IMPROVEMENT OF BRAIN ACTIVITY": take 1 capsule in the morning for 30 minutes. before breakfast, drink 250 ml of water.

Reception is contraindicated: children under 12 years old, pregnant women and nursing mothers.
