More evidence has emerged that the economic, financial and job insecurity created by the global downturn is causing a sharp increase in stress, anxiety and general mental ill health among workers.A poll by AXA PPP healthcare has suggested that money worries are leading to increased stress and anxiety for more than a third of staff.

Dont let the System bring you to this, because its trying hard!!!

The survey of 200 HR professionals also found that a quarter of firms believed the majority of their employees were showing symptoms of stress as a result of money concerns.

According to a non-scientific poll on a well know site, roughly 7 in 10 respondents are "very stressed" about money, and only 1 in 10 report that they are not stressed about finances — and the proportion of people stressed about money is only going up.

While money is a relatively common cause of stress and marital tension, the serious global economic downturn we’re currently seeing has many people concerned about losing their home or their savings -- or both! If you’re finding yourself stressed about money, the following steps can lead you to a greater sense of peace, and a brighter future.

When we feel threatened, our fight or flight response the body’s stress response kicks in and makes changes in the body. The heart rate quickens, stress hormones like cortisol are released, and a host of other changes occur that allow the body a quick burst of energy to run away fast or stay and fight — strategies that have worked for thousands of years, but aren’t always practical now. While that burst of energy and alertness can cause you to act, if your body remains in this state for prolonged periods of time (as in the case of chronic stress), it can be damaging to your health in many ways. That’s why it’s important to have some stress relief strategies that can be used in a variety of situations, to calm your body’s stress response so you can think clearly and stay healthier. Then you can work on solutions.

Cranial electrostimulation therapy (CES) involves passing small electrical impulses across the head, usually from electrodes placed on or near both ears. CES is used to treat a variety of chronic conditions including, but not limited to treatment of stress, alcoholism and drug addiction, headache, cognitive dysfunction in head injured patients, psychiatric conditions, reflex sympathetic dystrophy and multiple sclerosis.

CES is the doorway to good health. It works as an important adjunct in programs invoking nutrients, hormones, and medications. Its multiplicity of health benefits include: induction of relaxation response; exertion of control over frontal lobe behavior and modulating hormone levels...When amino acid supplementation is coupled with CES therapy, this combination is a potentially potent therapeutic regimen for anti-aging.

Some don't understand how great Cranial Electrical Stimulation is Then there are others who will try to scare you by saying there is terrible side effects. It is just not true!!! It has been FDA approved for the past 27 years as a class 2A medical device, with one of the best safety rating.

We would like to help your awarness of the benefits of CES on stress

Off course many of us just arn't Stressed

Stress

Increased stress increases productivity – up to a point, after which things rapidly deteriorate, and that level also differs for each of us. It’s much like the stress or tension on a violin string. Not enough produces a dull raspy sound and too much an irritating screech or snaps the string – but just the correct degree of stress creates a beautiful tone.
Similarly, we all have to find the right amount of stress that permits us to make pleasant music in our daily lives. You can learn how to utilize and transform stress so that it will make you more productive and less self-destructive. Paul J. Rosch, M.D., F.A.C.P

Does Stress Cause Heart Attacks?

We are all familiar with the word "stress". Stress is when you are worried about getting laid off your job, or worried about having enough money to pay your bills, or worried about your mother when the doctor says she may need an operation. In fact, to most of us, stress is synonymous with worry. If it is something that makes you worry, then it is stress.

 

Can Stress Cause Cancer?

The belief that cancer might in some way be related to stress or distressful emotions is as old as the history of recorded medicine. Over 2,000 years ago, in his dissertation on tumors, De Tumoribus, Galen noted that women who were melancholy were much more susceptible to cancer than other females, presumably because they had too much black bile (mélas chole). It was difficult to find much written about cancer in the English medical literature until 1701, at which time a British physician, Gendron, emphasized the effect of "disasters of life as occasion much trouble and grief" in the causation of cancer. Eighty years later, Burrows attributed the disease to "the uneasy passions of the mind with which the patient is strongly affected for a long time."

Early nineteenth century physicians such as Nunn emphasized that emotional factors influenced the growth of tumors of the breast, and Stern noted that cancer of the cervix in women was more common in sensitive and frustrated individuals. Walshe's major treatise The Nature and Treatment of Cancer called attention to the "influence of mental misery, sudden reverses of fortune and habitual gloomings of the temper on the disposition of carcinomatous matter. If systematic writers can be credited, these constitute the most powerful cause of the disease." One hundred years ago, Snow's review of over 250 patients at the London Cancer Hospital concluded that "the loss of a near relative was an important factor in the development of cancer of the breast and uterus."

By not going with the flow:

You struggle emotionally and waste energy.

You make mistakes, causing more stress.

You fight a lost cause.

You stay on the sidelines and avoid being in the game.

The Wise go with the flow

You adjust quickly to a changing environment.

You align yourself with the organization.

You make choices and decisions confidently.

Hypertension

Hypertension is also called "high blood pressure". Hypertension is a silent killer because it is deadly and has no early significant symptoms. The danger from hypertension is the extra load on the heart, leading to complications such as hypertensive heart disease. Hypertension can also seriously damage the kidneys. And it does all this silently, without any major symptoms, except when the high blood pressure gets extreme...

Reducing stress can help lower high blood pressure. Stress is a normal part of life. But too much stress can lead to emotional, psychological, and even physical problems -- including heart disease, high blood pressure, chest pains, or irregular heart beats.

Low Level Brain Stimulation for Anxiety: A Review of 50 years of Research and Supporting Data

Medical researchers aren't sure exactly how stress increases the risk of heart disease. Stress itself might be a risk factor, or it could be that high levels of stress make other risk factors (such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure) worse. For example, if you are under stress, your blood pressure goes up, you may overeat, you may exercise less, and you may be more likely to smoke.

If stress itself is a risk factor for heart disease, it could be because chronic stress exposes your body to unhealthy, persistently elevated levels of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. Studies also link stress to changes in the way blood clots, which increases the risk of heart attack.

Over time, untreated high blood pressure can damage organs, such as the heart, kidneys, or eyes. This may lead to:
Chest pain (angina), heart attack, or heart failure
Stroke
Kidney (renal) failure
Peripheral arterial disease
Eye damage (retinopathy)
Abnormal heartbeat

Electronic Meditation is Amazing for Stress

*HGH: As we get older, decreasing quantities of HGH results in many aging symptoms including loss of muscle tone, increased weight gain, loss of stamina, sagging skin and muscles, wrinkled skin that lacks good tone and texture and flagging memory and many diseases associated with aging. HGH is produced naturally by the pituitary gland in the center of our brain.

When we are in deep, dreamless sleep at the delta level the pituitary is stimulated to produce more HGH which is why we feel refreshed and replensished when we get a good nights sleep. The anti-aging properties of deep meditation come from the release of HGH when reaching the delta level during meditation.

A healthy lifestyle and diet, and a calm mental and emotional life also stimulate the production of HGH. Lack in any of this is at least one of the reasons for aging, mental imbalances, sickness and disease and so on. Delta level sessions help bring the body to a deeply relaxed state so that one can reach the delta level easier. It also helps to have a healthy diet and lifestyle, it all works together for the better.

Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Stroke

CES treatment is generally administered for 20 minutes to one hour per day, at least once a week, but as often as daily in severe cases. Most symptoms improve significantly during a customary initial three week evaluation period, although patients are often provided a CES unit to have at home to use from time to time in order to prevent symptoms from returning.

Effects of Cerebral Electrical Stimulation on Alcoholism:

Stress and Allergies

Allergic reactions are a part of your body's natural defense mechanism. When confronted with a substance which your body considers toxic, your body will try to get rid of it, attack it, or somehow neutralize it. If it is something that lands in your nose, you might get a runny, sneezy nose. If it lands on your skin, you might get blistery skin. If you inhale it, you'll get wheezy lungs. If you eat it, you may break out in itchy red hives all over your body. Allergy is a definite stress, requiring large changes in energy expenditure on the part of your body's defense system to fight off what the body perceives as a dangerous attack by an outside toxin.

PsoriasisHave you noticed The more stress the worst it gets,Stress can cause your psoriasis to worsen, which in turn can cause more stress.

When the everyday stress of living with psoriasis is compounded by a stressful event at work, a personal crisis, or an especially hectic time, such as the holidays, the stress can feel overwhelming.

Ask anyone with psoriasis what triggers a flare-up, and stress is likely to top the list. Scientific studies confirm that stress can worsen psoriasis and increase itching. Some people can even trace their first outbreak to a particularly stressful event.

Having psoriasis is, in itself, stressful. When lesions are visible, people may stare and not want to get near. They may ask, “What did you do to your skin?” Even a spouse, parents, children, friends, and co-workers can be visibly uncomfortable. Some people report that a spouse cannot bear to touch them during severe outbreaks. Others say they feel embarrassed or ashamed by their skin. Source

Meditation can relax not only your body, but your mind, too. It has been practiced for centuries as part of Eastern religious and spiritual practices, and involves clearing the mind by focusing attention on a specific word or group of words, an object, or just the sound and rhythm of your own breath. Proponents believe that it heightens physical and mental relaxation, enabling you to deal with thoughts and emotions, which in turn, can help reduce stress.

Tinitus or Ringing in the Ears (Source of Stress) helped by CES More here is it caused by stress and ?

Severe stress can make your tinnitus sound appear several times louder. Tinnitus has many causes but in all cases it has always been stress that aggravates it. The moment stress starts it can create a nasty cycle making the tinnitus more disturbing. It is therefore important that we learn the proper ways to manage stress and take measures to prevent it from devastating our lives Source

Healing process

Stress slows the ability of the body to repair wounds by changing the response of the immune system to injury, scientists have found. US researchers set out to test the chemicals produced when 36 female volunteers were given minor blisters. Doctors had also noticed that patients helped to relax before an operation recovered more quickly, often being kept in hospital one or two fewer days.

Sleep Lack of it causes amazing high levels of Stress

A major source of stress is overdriving yourself. If you are working (or partying) 16 hours a day, you will have reducedyour available time for rest. Sooner or later, the energy drain on your system will cause the body to fall behind in its repair work. There will not be enough time or energy for the body to fix broken cells, or replace used up brain neurotransmitters. CHANGES will occur in your body's internal environment. You will "hit thewall," "run out of gas". If you continue, permanent damage may be done. The body's fight to stay healthy in the face of the increased energy that your are expending is major stress.

Sleep deprivation, or insomnia, is a common companion with attacks of anxiety. Some may think it is the anxiety that is causing the lack of sleep, and the insomnia is just a symptom of another greater physiological or psychological problem. However, in all honesty, it can be the exact opposite. Researchers are discovering how lack of sleep or insomnia may be one of the primary contributors to a case of anxiety.

Carole L. of Verdugo City, California, uses CES twice a day for her pain from lupus and fibromyalgia. It only took a few treatments for her to realize less frequent awakenings and a more rested feeling when she awoke. The fogginess gave way to a clear head, and she felt calm. When her pain increased, she was able to relieve it in minutes. She said, "If I had not experienced this myself, I would have difficulty believing it! I ended up having a pleasant evening instead of being in bed with narcotic pain relievers and still feeling the pain."more

Prescription sleep medication, given as an insomnia cure ,can also bring about feelings of anxiety. Studies have been done to show that many of the very popular sleeping pills, can carry side effects of anxiety and mild depression.

Pain causes stress

Howard Rosen, MD, an anesthesiologist/pain specialist in Monterey, California, gave a lecture on fibromyalgia at the 2003 annual meeting of the American Academy of Pain Management. He said that he never uses narcotics because they don't work well enough for his patients, and once patients start narcotics, they never come off them. His prescription: a daily dose of mild electrical stimulation with CES

Marilyn Lins, MD, of Utica Neuorological Surgery, Inc. in Tulsa, Oklahoma, said that the results she has been obtaining have been miraculous. A pain specialist, Dr. Lins reported on several fibromyalgia patients who have had sufficient pain relief to resume normal activities with as little as two 20-minute treatments per week. One of her patients stopped limping after only one treatment. Dr. Lins said, "[CES] has forever changed my treatment approach. I have never experienced results like I have had in the past two months."

A peer-reviewed study published in the American Journal of Pain Management documented treatment outcomes from 2,500 patients who responded to a survey.14 Of those, there were 363 fibromyalgia patients, 91% of whom reported significant results (>25% improvement) in their condition. These patients all used CES for a minimum of three weeks. Similar results were reported for other pains, including migraine and other headaches, back, and neck pain.

Sexuality

Good health means good sexual life, but poor sexual life is triggered by much more factors than just one condition.

Do you have a low sex drive? It has been estimated that 10 to 20 million American men and women suffer from some kind of sexual dysfunction which results in loss of libido. For most of us, our sexual health is something we take for granted until it begins to be a problem.

Sexual problems asociated with sress

You are not alone in your concern. A diminished interest in sex is one of many symptoms that can develop as a result of increased psychological stress, and studies show that a decreased sex drive is a common complaint in people who have stressful jobs and work long hours. Fortunately, taking steps to manage your stress can help you regain some of your lost sexual energy.

We have known for a long time that STRESS can cause physical damage to the gastrointestinal tract, glandular system, skin or cardiovascular system. But only recently have we learned that STRESS actually causes physical changes in the brain. One of the most exciting medical advances of our decade has been an understanding of how STRESS physically affects your brain. We now know that the fatigue, aches and pains, crying spells, depression, anxiety attacks and sleep disturbances of STRESS are caused by brain CHEMICAL MALFUNCTION.
