The Link Between Stress And Your Body Detox System

Jun 17, 2008
When your life feels that it is just one thing after another and you feel as though you've been like this forever and that nothing is ever going to change, you know that it is time to stop and really take stock of where you are at and what you need to be doing! There is a good chance that if you've been trucking along at full tilt for a long time, that it is time for a whole body detox and though it might surprise you, of the first things that you need to work on is your stress!

Because detoxification is usually seen as a physical thing, and because stress is typically seen as something mental, people are often not sure what one has to do with the other. They think of the stress that they feel as being "all in their head" and because of this, they are not sure what it has to do with the feelings of fatigue, frustration and tiredness that they are experiencing. The truth is, the way that your body feels and the way that your mind feels is inextricably intertwined, and if you are going to fix one, you need to make sure that you fix the other, and one way to do this is through a whole body detox that takes stress into consideration.

The first thing that you need to be aware of is what stress is. Though we usually think of stress as a bad thing, this is only true when there is too much of it. Stress gives us that extra burst of energy that we need when we're writing a paper, running a race or trying to accomplish a goal. A certain amount of stress will keep us motivated and on target, and without it, there is a good chance that we will be in as bad a situation as we are when we have too much of it!

When we get stressed, hormones are released into our systems and we go into a fight or flight response. The problem comes about, however, when stress has produced too much in the way of hormones and our bodies can't process it. When this happens, stress can impair the mental state and cripple the nervous system and the immune system. What this means to a an attempt at a body detox program is that you have too much energy and don't know what to do with it.

When looking for ways to detoxify our bodies, it makes a great deal of sense that stress is something that has to go. You'll find that there are plenty of ways to get rid of stress, but the key is finding the right one for you and that fits in with your full body detox plan. Some people take to medication like ducks to water, while other people simply feel that meditation is silly and not for them. Try looking for the things that relax you and distract you, and make sure that you integrate them into your lives as part of your body detox program.

Many people feel that getting rid of stress or at least lowering it is an important key element in good detoxification, and other people feel that it is the most important step of all. In either case, take the time to remove some stress from your life and see how much better your natural body detox will go!
