Babu, MD, SAC Dip Advanced Stress Management
How does our body react to
reaction of body to stress is generally known as the General
has three stages: 1.The alarm
reaction 2.The stage of Resistance and, 3.The stage of exhaustion .
01.The Stage of
Alarm Reaction : This is our
wellknown 'fight or flight' response. As soon as our body is faced
with a stressful situation, our body explodes with a sudden surge of
energy with flooding of scores of hormones and chemical activators
into the blood stream. We become alert and ready to meet any threat.
The main players in this stage are heart, lungs, brain, nervous
system and the muscles, all stimulated by the release of hormones.
Arousal is initiated by hypothalamus by release of endorphins, the
natural painkillers. At the same time, adrenaline is secreted by the
adrenal glands. Adrenaline causes palpitations,increased blood
pressure and release of vital nutrients. It also causes muscle
tension and makes breathing faster and shallower. Noradrenaline is
also secreted, and is associated with positive ecstatic arousal.
cortisol, converts glycogen stored in the liver into blood sugar,
thus stimulating the brain and whole body with instant energy. In
males, the hormone testosterone is released, and provides the
required surge of strength. Thyroxin, released by thyroid gland,
stimulates the metabolic system and regulates the oxygen
consumption. Our digestive system slows down, as blood is diverted
to essential organs required to meet the immediate threat.
02.The Stage Of
Resistance: Once the alarm
reaction is established and the immediate threat is faced, the body
moves onto a resistance phase, where the bodily functions put on
alert are reverted back to a near normal state. The heart rate,
respiratory rate and metabolic activities come down to a maintenance
level; the body is still ready and alert. More cortisole, thyroxin
etc are released to speed up the tissue repair, which may have been
damaged during stress.
03. The Stage
of Exhaustion: Emotions such as
anger, anxiety and impatience etc are continuous stress
stimulators, and without our knowledge, our body is
put in (and stays in!) a 'fight or flight' mode. Overdose of
adrenaline often cause irritability and uneasiness. Noradrenaline
excess makes us feel disconnected and high. Too much of cortisol will
suppress the immune system, making us vulnerable to a host of
diseases. Extra sodium is retained, affecting the cardiovascular and
excretory systems adversely. Thus our body goes into exhaustion and
breakdown due to continuous uncontrolled stress. Emotionally, we are
depressed, anxious, disoriented, insecure and frustrated.
The translation of emotional distress to physiological
change, and thence to a physical symptom is known as 'transduction'.
In transduction,a situation is perceived, a meaning is assigned to
it, an emotional response is elicited and a physiological reaction
results. A complex autoimmune, humoral and neuromuscular mechanisms
mediate this reaction, and may itself affect the environment,
generating in turn a social response that may yield either a
positive or negative feedback.
Somatization is a very important concept that recognizes that
an emotionally distressed patient more often presents with physical
symptoms than psychological complaints. Nemiah et al believe that
people who somatize are alexythymic. They simply cannot express
feelings in words and must, therefore, resort to expressing them in physical symptoms.
few diseases either induced,sustained or exacerbated by stress are
listed in table .The list is by no means complete. While in some of
these diseases stress is only one among the factors responsible for
the aetio- pathogenesis, in others stress is the main perpetuator.

How Can Stress
Cause So Many Different Diseases?
Many of the effects of stress on mind and body are due to increased
sympathetic nervous system activity and an outpouring of adrenaline,
cortisol and other stress-related hormones. Certain types of
chronic and more insidious stress due to loneliness, poverty,
bereavement, depression and frustration due to discrimination are
associated with impaired immune system resistance to viral linked
disorders ranging from the common cold and herpes to AIDS and
cancer. Stress can have effects on other hormones, brain
neurotransmitters, additional small chemical messengers elsewhere,
prostaglandins, as well as crucial enzyme systems, and metabolic
activities that are still unknown. Research in these areas may
help to explain how stress can contribute to depression, anxiety and
its diverse effects on the gastrointestinal tract, skin and other
