Stress and methods of struggle
In medicine, stress is said in those cases when events occurring in a person's life suppress his ability to cope with the situation.
A stressful event can be something good (promotion, new work, housewarming, marriage) or bad (loss of work, loss of a loved one, divorce, threat to financial position or health), but in any case, there may be a psychic reaction that takes a person out out of balance.
Each of us, during his lifetime, sometimes faces such a mental challenge; in such cases we sometimes act with confident equanimity, and sometimes we get lost in indecision.
Our reaction to stress corresponds not so much to the grandeur of the event as to how we perceive it: thus, in a small child, the loss of a favorite toy causes bitter sobs; a teenager can get furious because of an unsuccessful hairstyle and outwardly calmly accept the death of a loved one.
Typical reactions to stress are 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 can develop even somatic symptoms, such as headache, joint and muscle pain, blurred vision, skin rashes, gastritis, ulcers, or other digestive system disorders.
Whatever the stress, good or bad, emotional or physical (or both), its effects on the body have common features. Especially the immune system suffers from stress. In a stressful state, people are more likely to become victims of an infection, as the production of immune cells drops noticeably during periods of physical or mental stress.
Although you can not change a stressful event (and if it is good, then you do not want to change it), you can better resist stress with proper nutrition and support of dietary supplements. The role of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional components in this case is to strengthen the immune system and to compensate for stress-related deficits.
A properly formulated diet contributes to resistance to stress. Under stress, your body's need for high-grade protein increases with conventional
We can assume that
If you are stressed in your diet, 35% of calories should come from high quality protein (satisfying the above minimum requirements), another 35% for fruits and vegetables with low starch content and 30% for fats (20% for mono- or polyunsaturated oils, 10 % - Animal fats).
Under stress, the need for vitamin C (ascorbic acid) sharply increases.
If you do not take this vitamin constantly, 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 a 4-
B vitamins can alleviate stress symptoms such as depression, absent-mindedness, numbness and tingling. Take 100 mg of B-kompleksa once or twice a day and, in addition, 500-1000 μg of vitamin B 12 (tablets under the tongue) once or twice a week.
Sugar and starch-like substances contribute to reducing the content of vitamins C and B in the body. Stop or drastically reduce the intake of these substances, especially in stressful situations.
Neurocirculatory dystonia (NDC) is a disease of various etiology, mainly of a neurogenic nature, which develops as a consequence of adaptation disorders after a previous illness, mental trauma, overfatigue, negative influence of environmental factors: intoxication with industrial poisons, exposure to ionizing radiation, vibration, presence of chronic foci in the patient's body .
As a result of these factors, dysfunction of the hypothalamic-pituitary system occurs, leading to a disruption in the body's adaptation to environmental changes. The most important prerequisite for the emergence of pathology is an innate predisposition to dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, its age-related restructuring in the pubertal or menopausal period.
These violations, first of all, are manifested when the weather conditions change (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 cortex, subcortical structures of the reticular formation.
Clinically, NDC manifests itself in the form of cardialgia , heart rhythm disorders, macro-ocular and microcirculation, and other manifestations and is divided into 4 clinical types: cardiac, hypertensive, hypotensive and mixed.
Significant role in the development of NCCs, especially in childhood and adolescence, is caused by eating disorders, transmitted infectious diseases, chronic infections of the nasopharynx.
Under the influence of etiological factors disintegration of neurohormonal metabolic regulation occurs at the level of the cerebral cortex, limbic zone and hypothalamus, which, in turn, leads to autonomic nervous system dysfunction, endocrine gland functional disorders and microcirculation system.
First of all, these patients develop asthenic syndrome. It is manifested by the deterioration of the physical condition (weakness or fatigue from the very morning or gradually growing to the middle of the day, a violation of coordination and accuracy of movements, etc.), a decrease in mood, memory and volitional qualities, inability to concentrate, sleep disorders. In the prone position, patients feel better.
For patients with NDC, a high level of neuropsychic instability and difficulty in social and psychological adaptation are characteristic: headache, irritability, decreased ability to work, anxiety, suspiciousness, insecurity in their actions, a negative assessment of office and household prospects are often noted, which can be combined with increased self-esteem and egocentrism.
Treatment of Neurocirculatory Dystonia and Prevention of Stress Reactions:
Sanitation of the mouth and nasopharynx.
Medications: sedatives ( diazepam , mebikar , grandaxin ), daytime tranquilizer of benzdiazepine series ( gidazepam ), neuroleptics ( sonapaks ), psychostimulants (glycine), decrease in increased activity of the sympathoadrenal system ( belloid ), agents improving cerebral circulation ( vinpocetine , cinnarizine ) .
Physiotherapy: iodide-bromine baths, exercise therapy, acupuncture, ozonotherapy .
