Stress Is the Silent Killer

In most cases, stress is the root cause of death; illnesses are just the wrap up.
Yordan Yordanov

Studies have been linking stress with cancer and heart disease for years. The reality is stress causes inflammation and chronic inflammatory response is being linked to almost every illness - obesity, autoimmune disorders like AIDS, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, as well as most other chronic disorders.

Stress is a natural response of our bodies to react to internal and external toxins. Our bodies go into fight or flight response and our immune system shifts into battle mode, trying desperately to adapt.

Eventually our immune system becomes overwhelmed and wears out, no longer able to fight. Silently, inflammation burns us alive from the inside out.

Your Brain and Body Eventually Breaks Down Under Chronic Stress

Heightened, prolonged levels of cortisol in our bloodstream can be fatal! The brain simply cannot survive the constant onslaught of stress and inflammation unscathed. Prolonged, heightened levels of cortisol in our bloodstream has negative effects:

  • Impairs mental performance
  • Suppresses thyroid function, which can lead to hypothyroidism
  • Upsets blood sugar balance, which can lead to diabetes
  • Decreases bone density and muscle strength
  • Raises blood pressure
  • Increases abdominal fat, which creates more health problems than fat in other areas of the body, leading to heart attacks, stroke, high cholesterol and the development of metabolic syndrome
  • Lowers immunity and inflammatory responses in the body

Cortisol is the body's stress hormone, secreted by the adrenal glands. Small doses of cortisol are good - giving us bursts of energy to survive our fight or flight response. Cortisol heightens memory function, increases immunity, lowers sensitivity to pain, regulates blood pressure and helps our bodies maintain balance.

But our bodies were designed to relax after a stressful event, allowing cortisol levels to drop and return to normal.

In our always-on-the-go lifestyle today, we do not take the time to slow down and recover. Instead we throw ourselves into a state of chronic stress.

When cortisol levels are elevated over prolonged periods, the body's inflammatory response destroys our immune system, eventually killing us from false fire alarms.

TIME Magazine: The Secret Killer

In 2004, TIME Magazine proposed that chronic inflammation just might be engine that drives the illnesses of middle and old age, and proposed instead of treating the illnesses, what if we reduced inflammation?

We wrote an in-depth story about it titled, Stress: The Silent Killer. If you missed it, I urge you to take a moment and read it.

Mother Nature to the Rescue

We've all seen and know people who naturally have this high stress/high trauma condition under control - they look 10-15 years younger than they actually are and they don't complain about the common aches and pains that others do. In fact, a woman in our church is 70, but could easily pass for 50!
