Dr. Carolyn Dean LIVE08-30-21 Happy, Bright, Calm Nutrition for Your Emotions Carolyn Dean MD ND

Stress is a response to circumstances which force a person to act quickly, change, or make some adjustment to keep things in balance. The circumstance which forces a person to act is called a stressor. Stress is also defined as intense feelings created by the stimulus of certain events. When a person is stressed, his/her body automatically jumps into an action which is called a fight or flight response. Stress is further defined as an emotional and physical provocation caused by pressure from a given situation.  The good news is that everybody faces stress to a certain extent and it is normal to be stressed since we are living in a world full of challenges. Stress causes our bodies to respond quickly and automatically jump into a defensive mode. It is quite normal to fight the stressor, or try to ignore it.

When we are stressed, our bodies immediately respond to the stressors by telling our nervous systems and stress hormones that it is time to act. When we face a threatening situation, our hypothalamus informs the adrenal glands to produce the hormones, adrenaline, and cortisol, and release them into the bloodstream. Adrenaline pumps you up but experiments using IV adrenaline show that it decreases magnesium as well as calcium, potassium, and sodium. Proving that when you are in a revved-up state and burning adrenaline, you are also burning off magnesium.

There are more than a dozen major metabolic processes that are affected by bursts of adrenaline, including heart rate, blood pressure, blood vessel constriction, and contraction of all muscles, including the heart. Thus, we feel palpitations, shortness of breath, and we may experience high blood pressure. All these symptoms are the body’s reaction to stress. In order to fight or flee, our blood vessels open wide, thus allowing more blood to flow to the muscles and stored glucose from the liver pours into the blood stream for extra energy. And, of course, each of these functions uses up extra vitamins and minerals.

Anxiety can occur as a result of this outpouring of adrenaline. It can also be created when fear is present – fears stemming from predictable or unpredictable situations, which may be real or imaginary.  Anxiety is a common human emotion, part and parcel of our everyday life. Anxiety is about worries, concerns, nervousness, and stress. In fact, to feel anxious occasionally is fine because it prepares us to be ready for actual challenges. But persistent and prolonged stress that creates anxiety is extremely draining – especially when a doctor tries to treat it with medication instead of magnesium and stress counseling.

Yes, one powerful, positive response to protecting your heart and mind from excessive and overwhelming stress is appropriate nutritional support.

If your stress, anxiety, or panic is rooted in a nutritional deficiency, good news is coming your way. Dr. Carolyn Dean, author of The Magnesium Miracle [2017 Edition] knows that nutritional supplementation is a safe, effective solution to support the total well-being of the body and balance the fight or flight response to stress and anxiety.  Consistent, daily use of highly absorbed minerals and food-based vitamins are clinically shown to induce a feeling of calm and wellness as your nutritionally depleted body experiences relief.
