Your Heart Health!

       Cancer Can Be Cured and Is Cured.


 Your Heart Health


How the Stress Response Affects Your Digestion and Health

    Your heart is not the only organ that takes a beating when you’re
stressed. While under stress, your heart rate goes up, your blood pressure
rises, and blood is shunted away from your midsection, going to your arms,
legs, and head for quick thinking, fighting, or fleeing. All of these changes
are referred to as the physiological stress response.

    Under those circumstances, your digestion also completely shuts down,
which can have severe ramifications for your overall health. Americans are
notorious for “eating on the run,” which can negate the benefits you’d
otherwise reap from eating a healthier diet (or make the effects of a poor
diet worse). The stress response causes a number of detrimental events in
your body, including:    

    Perhaps most importantly, when your body is under the stress response,
your cortisol and insulin levels rise. These two hormones tend to track each
other, and when your cortisol is consistently elevated under a chronic low-
level stress response, you may experience difficulty losing weight or
building muscle. Additionally, if your cortisol is chronically elevated,
you’ll tend to gain weight around your midsection, which is a major
contributing factor to developing diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Many
nutrients that are critical for health are also excreted during stress,

        Water-soluble vitamins
        Calcium (calcium excretion can increase as much as 60 to 75
        mg within an hour of a stressful event)

Tending to Your Gut is Important to Help Combat Mental Stress

    What this all boils down to is that when you eat under stress, your body
is in the opposite state of where you need to be in order to digest,
assimilate nutrients and burn calories. You could be eating the healthiest
food in the world, but if your body cannot fully digest and assimilate that
food, then you will not reap the benefits from it, nor will you be able to
burn calories effectively.

    Interestingly, neurotransmitters like serotonin are also found in your
gut. In fact, the greatest concentration of serotonin, which is involved in
mood control, depression and suppressing aggression, is found within your
intestines, not your brain. It’s no surprise then that scientific evidence
shows that nourishing your gut flora with the friendly bacteria with
fermented foods or probiotics is extremely important for proper brain
function, including psychological well-being and mood control. For instance,
the probiotic known as Bifidobacterium longum NCC3001 has been shown to
normalize anxiety-like behavior in mice with infectious colitis.

    Research published in 20117 also demonstrated that probiotics have a
direct effect on brain chemistry under normal conditions -- in such a way
that can impact your feelings of anxiety or depression.

    In short, the probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus had a marked effect on
GABA [an inhibitory neurotransmitter that is significantly involved in
regulating many physiological and psychological processes] levels in certain
brain regions and lowered the stress-induced hormone corticosterone,
resulting in reduced anxiety- and depression-related behavior. The authors

        "Together, these findings highlight the important role of bacteria in
the bidirectional communication of the gut-brain axis and suggest that
certain organisms may prove to be useful therapeutic adjuncts in stress-
related disorders such as anxiety and depression."

For Optimal Health, Take Stress Management Seriously

    You cannot eliminate stress entirely, but you can work to provide your
body with tools to compensate for the bioelectrical short-circuiting that can
cause serious disruption in many of your body's important systems. By using
energy psychology techniques such as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT),
you can reprogram your body’s reactions to the unavoidable stressors of
everyday life. EFT stimulates different energy meridian points in your body
by tapping them with your fingertips while tapping on specific key locations,
custom-made verbal affirmations are said repeatedly. This can be done alone
or under the supervision of a qualified therapist.

    Seeking the help of a licensed therapist is particularly recommended if
you’re dealing with trauma-based stress such as PTSD or grief following the
loss of a loved one. There are also many other stress-management strategies
you can employ to help you unwind and address your stress, including:

        Exercise. Studies have shown that during exercise, tranquilizing
chemicals (endorphins) are released in your brain. Exercise is a natural way
to bring your body pleasurable relaxation and rejuvenation, and has been
shown to help protect against the physical effects of daily stress
        Restorative sleep
        Meditation (with or without the additional aid of brain wave
       synchronization technology)
        Schedule time to eat without rushing, and make sure to maintain
optimal gut health by regularly consuming fermented foods, such as fermented
vegetables, or taking a high-quality probiotics supplement
