How stress affects the body

Acute stress is a response to imminent danger, it turbo charges the system with powerful hormones that can damage the cardiovascular system. Chronic stress is caused by constant emotional pressure. It produces hormones that weaken the immune system and damage bones. The stress response begins in the brain and then the body unleashes a flood of hormones to prepare for the flight. Adrenal glands react to the alert by releasing epiniphrine/adrenaline, which makes the heart pump faster and the lungs work harder to flood the body with oxygen. The adrenal glands also release extra cortisol and other glucocorticoids, which help the body convert sugars into energy. Nerve cells release norepinephrine, which tenses the muscles and sharpens the senses to prepare for action. Digestion then shuts down. This can cause significant damage and numerous symptoms.

Chronic low-level stress keeps the glucocorticoids in circulation, leading to a weaker immune system, loss of bone mass, suppression of the reproductive system and memory problems. It is essential that stress related symptoms are confronted in the proper manner to avoid disease setting in.

Bio Energy is a powerful healing science that is natural and highly effective treating all conditions, most common being digestive disorders, back pain, headaches, arthritis, lack of energy and stress/anxiety. The body is composed of energy and should flow freely to be in good health, it is when the energy becomes blocked that problems can occur on a physical and emotional level. A therapist is trained to detect these blockages and release the energy for it to flow freely and be balanced and this in turn activates the person’s own natural healing ability.

Maureen Murphy has been a bio-energy therapist for over 20 years and currently holds a permanent clinic in Claremorris. She will also be holding a clinic in Ballina Community Centre this Monday June 11.

Treatment is private and by appointment. Call: 087 249 4022 /094 954 0068.
