Is Emotional Stress Endangering Your Health?

Posted on Apr 1, 2018


Have you ever felt a feeling of strain and pressure on your mind, body and spirit? There’s such a thing as “emotional stress,” and it’s no joke. Many people experience it.

What are some signs you might be emotionally stressed out? For starters, you might be feeling tired all the time. Your lack of energy is causing you to not want to work. Sometimes you don’t even feel like getting out of bed and facing the day. Meanwhile, you could be experiencing “brain fog,” whereas you can’t seem to keep track of things like you normally would, and you even have trouble making otherwise “normal” decisions. Do you feel “on edge?” Have you changed your eating habits and gained weight because you’re so stressed out and junk food seems to satisfy temporary cravings? Have you been sleeping a lot– like 11 hours a night instead of 8? What about drugs or alcohol? Have you turned to them in order to feel better? You might be emotionally stressed out.

What are some symptoms of emotional stress? In other words, how does the body react to this sort of problem? Do you feel heart palpitations sometimes? Have you been dealing with diarrhea? How about chronic back pain, neck pain, and/or tension headaches? If you’ve experienced a combination of these symptoms, you’re likely emotionally stressed and that stress is manifesting itself in your body. You probably don’t feel good, day after day, and relief is needed.

Many people have turned to their chiropractors during times of emotional stress. The touch of experienced hands can often give relief to the symptoms of stress. If and when you’re feeling like you can’t cope with the daily demands of life and stress is interfering with your work life and/or social life, it’s time to seek professional help.

Make an appointment to see Dr. Jason Gerard at Lakewoods Chiropractic in Forest Lake, MN; the number is 651-464-0800 or you can email info@lakewoodschiropractic.com.

You might also need to see a doctor for further treatment, especially if it has gotten so bad that you’re misusing drugs and alcohol and/or thinking suicidal thoughts.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
