Stress: The 3 Stages of Chronic Stress
from Dr. James Wilson, Author of
"Adrenal Fatigue, 21 Century Stress Syndrome"
The "fight or flight" (alarm)
(adrenalin, noradrenalin and cortisol) are released by the adrenal glands. The
pupils of your eyes dilate and you become much more alert. When the stressful
situation reduces, the increased production reverts, allowing your body to
return to rest (homeostasis).
The resistance phase (adaptive)
resistance phase, cortisol receptors become less sensitive to the mechanism that
returns the body to rest. This causes increased cortisol production and results
in various side effects such as headaches, memory loss, insomnia, low libido,
and high blood pressure.
when the capacity for stress resistance is overwhelmed. This stage is
characterized by depletion of energy and may lead to poor metabolism, insulin
resistance, and lowered immune function. The exhaustion phase can eventually
lead to adrenal insufficiency or even a total shutdown of the adrenal glands.
