Stress and fighting methods
In medicine, stress is said in cases when events occurring in a person’s life suppress his ability to cope with a situation.
A stressful event can be something good (promotion, new job, housewarming, marriage) or bad (job loss, loss of a loved one, divorce, threat to financial status or health), but in any case a mental reaction can occur out of balance.
During the course of our lives, each of us sometimes faces such a mental challenge; in such cases, we sometimes act with confident calmness, and sometimes get lost in indecision.
Our reaction to stress corresponds not so much to the grandeur of the event, as to how we ourselves perceive it: thus, for a young child, the loss of a favorite toy causes bitter sobs; a teenager can become furious because of an unsuccessful hairstyle and apparently calmly accept the death of a loved one.
Typical reactions to stress are anxiety, depression, flight (including self-deprecation, heavy drinking, 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, pain in the joints and muscles, blurred vision, skin rash, gastritis, an ulcer or other disorders of the digestive system.
Whatever the stress, good or bad, emotional or physical (or both), its effect on the body has common features. The immune system suffers especially from stress. People under stress are more likely to be victims of infection, since the production of immune cells drops markedly during physical or mental stress.
Although you cannot change a stressful event (and if it’s good, you don’t want to change it), you can better withstand stress with proper nutrition and the support of dietary supplements. The role of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional components in this case is to strengthen the immune system and compensate for the deficiencies caused by stress.
Properly formulated diet contributes to resistance to stress. Under stress, your body’s need for complete protein increases from normal
We can assume that
With stress in your diet, 35% of calories should come from high-quality protein (satisfying the minimum requirements above), another 35% to fruits and vegetables with low starch content and 30% to fats (20% to mono- or polyunsaturated oils; 10 % animal fats).
Under stress, the need for vitamin C (ascorbic acid) increases dramatically.
If you do not take this vitamin all the time, start with one 500-milligram pill 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 can often endure 4-
B vitamins can relieve stress symptoms such as depression, distraction, numbness and tingling. Take 100 mg B-complex once or twice a day and, moreover, 500-1000 mcg of vitamin B 12 (tablets under the tongue) once or twice a week.
Sugar and starch-like substances help to reduce the content of vitamins C and B in the body. Stop or drastically reduce your intake of these substances, especially in stressful situations.
Neurocirculatory dystonia (NCD) is a disease of various etiologies, mainly of neurogenic nature, developing as a result of adaptation disorders after illness, mental trauma, overwork, negative influence of environmental factors: intoxication with industrial poisons, exposure to ionizing radiation, vibration, and 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 impaired adaptation of the organism to environmental changes. The most important prerequisite for the emergence of pathology is a congenital susceptibility to dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, its age restructuring in the pubertal or menopausal period.
These violations, first of all, occur when weather conditions change (atmospheric pressure, air humidity).
NCD may be accompanied by dysfunction of one or several systems of the body, most often as functional disorders of the vegetative regulation of the cerebral cortex, subcortical structures of the reticular formation.
Clinically, NDCs manifest as cardialgias , cardiac arrhythmias, macroscopic and microcirculation, and other manifestations and are subdivided into 4 clinical types: cardiac, hypertensive, hypotensive, and mixed.
A significant role in the development of the NCC, especially in children and adolescents, is played by eating disorders, past infectious diseases, and chronic infections of the nasopharynx.
Under the influence of etiological factors, neurohormonal and metabolic regulation at the level of the cerebral cortex, limbic zone and hypothalamus occurs, which, in turn, leads to dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, functional disorders of the endocrine glands and the microcirculation system.
First of all, such patients develop asthenic syndrome. It is manifested by deterioration of physical condition (weakness or fatigue from the very morning or gradually increasing by mid-day, impaired coordination and accuracy of movements, etc.), low mood, decreased memory and volitional qualities, inability to concentrate, sleep disorders. At the same time, patients feel better when lying down.
Patients with NDCs are characterized by a high level of neuropsychic instability and difficulties in socio-psychological adaptation: headache, irritability, reduced working capacity, anxiety, suspiciousness, lack of confidence in their actions, negative assessment of work and life prospects are often noted, which can be combined with increased self-conceit and egocentrism.
TREATMENT OF NEUROCIRCULATORY DISTONIA AND PREVENTION OF STRESS RESPONSES:
Sanitation of the mouth and nasopharynx.
Drugs: sedatives ( diazepam , mebikar , grandaxine ), benzdiazepine daily tranquilizer ( gidazepam ), neuroleptics ( sonapax ), psychostimulants (glycine), decreased activity of the sympatho-adrenal system ( belloid ), means to improve the brain circulation ( vascular pain ) ( vinopropertipulma ) .
Physiotherapy: bromine bath, exercise therapy, acupuncture, ozone therapy .
BASIC PROGRAM OF CORRECTION for neurocirculatory dystonia and stress conditions with the help of the dietary supplement " Tiens ":
The first stage is the restoration of impaired metabolism and microcirculation of brain tissue.
1. “BIOCALCY TO IMPROVE BRAIN ACTIVITY”: take 1 capsule in the morning for 30 minutes. before breakfast, drink 250 ml of water.
Contains folic acid.
2. "BIOZINK": 2 capsules in the evening, 1.5 hours after dinner, drink 250 ml of water.
3. “ANTI-LIPID TEA”: in the morning, one hour before meals, pour 500 ml of boiling water 1 packet of tea and insist 15 minutes, drink in small sips for 10-15 minutes. Re-brew the same packet of tea in 500 ml of water and drink in the second half of the day.
Reception is contraindicated: children under 12 years old, pregnant women and nursing mothers.
Course dose - 1 month.
The second stage is the maintenance of normal metabolism of the nervous tissue, protection of the body from the effects of stress, a decrease in the increased activity of the sympathoadrenal system and a calming effect.
4. “SPIRULINA”: 2 pre-crushed tablets, 2 times a day, after lunch and dinner after 1.5 hours, drink 300 ml of warm broth of rosehip during a week, then the dose should be increased to 5 tablets 1 time a day after lunch time. Do not use in case of renal pathology (ARF, CRF, glomerulonephritis ).
5. “ICAN”: 3 capsules in the morning 30 minutes before breakfast, drink 250 ml of water.
Course dose - 2 months.
The duration of the basic correction program is 3 months.
