Does Chronic Stress Cause Disease? Yes, it does, but through two causes – deficiency at toxicity.

Are there solutions to stress?  In this Post I selected four experts to show us how.

SOLUTION ONE: To restore cells to normal and reverse disease, you have to address why cells are malfunctioning. Cells malfunction only if they suffer from a lack of nutrients (deficiency) or excess of something not needed (toxicity), and usually a combination of both.

Manufacturing stress chemicals depletes the body of critical nutrients, causing deficiency, and the buildup of stress chemicals has a toxic effect on the body.

You have a power to prevent the two causes of the disease because you are able to choose how you live your life. All you have to do is give your cells what they need and protect them from what they don’t need.

Dr. Raymond Francisis described as “one of the few scientists who has achieved a breakthrough understanding of health and disease,” Raymond Francis draws deeply from his years of personal experience and professional training. He is a chemist and a graduate of MIT.

SOLUTION TWO:How Stress Impacts Your Gut

Chronic stress results in alterations in your brain-gut connection, which can cause or worsen numerous gastrointestinal disorders, including inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, food allergies, GERD and more.

In a very real sense you have two brains, one inside your skull and one in your gut. Interestingly, these two organs are actually created out of the same type of tissue during fetal development.

These two systems are connected via the vagus nerve, the tenth cranial nerve that runs from your brain stem down to your abdomen.  This “brain-gut axis” is what connects your two brains together, and explains why you get butterflies in your stomach when you’re nervous, for example.

Imbalances in Your Gut Can Make You Depressed, Anxious and More

Increasingly, scientific evidence shows that nourishing your gut flora with the friendly bacteria with fermented foods or probiotics is extremely important for proper brain function, and that includes 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.i

Research published in 2011 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.ii

Stress-reduction tools used in combination with dietary approaches to heal and support your gut can help improve your overall health on physical and emotional levels. ***

On a personal note: *** In my Blog I talk about healing the gut with the GAPS Diet, here is another example where eating foods provided by Mother Nature heal whereas processed foods stress the gut.

Our gut holds the roots of our health, with sick roots we will not to thrive.

If the gut is sick, if it is unhealthy, then the rest of the body cannot function. You will be sick.

The GAPS nutritional protocol focuses on healing the roots of your health, the gut flora inside us.

A human body is inhabited by large numbers of various micro-creatures making one ecosystem of macro and micro life, living together in a symbiotic relationship.Recent research has shown that about 90% of all genetic material and all cells in human body is our gut flora. We ignore that part of our physiology at our peril.

A healthy adult, on average, carries 1.5 to 2 kg of bacteria in the gut. All these bacteria form a highly organized micro-world with certain species be dominating and controlling others.

Micro-flora can be divided into three groups:

  1. Essential or beneficial (friendly) flora.

 

  1. Opportunistic flora. In a healthy person their numbers are normally limited and are tightly controlled by the beneficial flora. Each of these microbes is capable of causing various health problems if they get out of control.

 

  1. Transitional flora. These are various microbes, which we daily swallow with food and drink. When the gut is well protected by beneficial flora, this group of microbes goes through our digestive system trapped without doing any harm. But if the population of beneficial flora is not functioning well in this group of microbes can cause disease.

 

The digestive tract is coated with a bacterial layer providing a natural barrier against invaders, undigested food, toxins and parasites.

The bacterial layer works against invasive pathogenic micro-organisms by producing antibiotic like substances and engages the immune system to respond appropriately to invaders.

Our healthy indigenous (friendly) gut flora has a good ability to neutralize toxic substances, inactivate histamine and chelate metals and other poisons. The cell walls of beneficial bacteria absorb many carcinogenic substances, making them inactive. They also suppress hyperplastic (abnormal tissue growth) processes in the gut, which the basis of all cancer formation.

And we must not forget about the opportunistic flora, which normally lives in the gut, controlled by the beneficial bacteria. They will cause trouble if the good bacteria are weakened. In inflammatory bowel disease different bacteria are found in the mucous membrane of the gut and even inside the gut cells, which means the productive bacterial band has been broken and allowed pathogens to reach the sacred gut wall.

To make the situation even worse… Well, we will leave that for next week.

Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS are separate diseases, but they share the characteristics of deteriorating brain function, a long development period, and no cure by traditional medicine.

I watched a documentary on Alzheimer’s the other night. My curiosity lead me re-read the relevant chapters in two of Dr. Russell Blaylock’s books.
Book 1. Dr. Blaylock’s Prescription for Natural Healing.   It is meant for the average person to understand. Here is a link to the book:
I learned: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS are separate diseases, but they share the characteristics of deteriorating brain function, a long development period, and no cure by traditional medicine. When researchers examined what increased the risk of these disorders, they found that all had two things in common:
• They increase brain inflammation .
• They trigger very harmful overstimulation of cells in the brain and nervous system.
Book 2. Health and Nutrition Secrets than can save your life, is a book that a doctor or someone who wants to understand more.Here is a link to the book:
Here is a little of what I learned: Most neurological diseases do not become obvious until about 75 percent of brain cells in the affected area have died; the surviving 25 percent are extremely sick and cannot function normally, which is why treating neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s dIsease, Parkinson’s disease and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) is so difficult. By the time such a disease becomes clinically evident, there just isn’t much left for doctors to work with.
Fats and the Brain: While vitamins and minerals are critical for proper brain function of equal importance is a group of fats called omega-3 fatty acids. These polyunsaturated fats  are composed of two very Important components, EPA  and DHA, which play a particularly important part in brain function and health.
Unfortunately because of food-processing methods and industrial raising of animals as meat sources, most omega-3 fatty acids have been removed from our foods.    …. By maintaining a low intake of Omega·6 fats and a higher intake of Omega-3 fats, you can significantly improve the function of your brain and reduce the risk of developing  diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Repairing the Damage:  … the evidence seems to indicate that it (DNA) plays a significant role in development of the disease.
Melatonin and curcumin enhance production of repair enzyme, whIch then aid in repair of pre-existing DNA damage. When DNA is functioning properly, it can give the cell the information it needs to make repairs as well.
For people at risk there are several supplements were mentioned. I was particularly interested in: Acetyl-L-carnitine, CoQ10, alpha-lipoid acid and DHA which can repair membrane damage and return fluidity to this vital cellular component.
If you would like the full list, please let me know.
We all have one life. Let’s make the best of it.
