STRESS - A MODERN EPIDEMIC

Everyone experiences stress - in our busy modern world, stress is unavoidable; the deleterious health effects of stress, however, are avoidable. Common causes of stress include:

  • Major life events - e.g. births, deaths, marriage, divorce, moving house, changing jobs, trauma

  • Personal relationships - e.g. conflict, deception, bullying

  • Work/study - e.g. exams, deadlines, responsibilities

  • Health issues - e.g. pain, chronic illness

  • Dietary and lifestyle issues - e.g. lack of sleep, poor diet, smoking, excessive intake of alcohol

These events and/or our responses to these events can cause a disruption to our normal homeostatic functioning. This triggers the activation of our Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis and Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS). These systems release hormones and neurotransmitters to help us cope with a stressful event. When kept in check, these response systems are extremely effective and do not cause us any long-term harm. However, if the stress continues for a prolonged period of time and/or our HPA axis and SNS begin to function inappropriately, health can be significantly adversely affected.

Chronic stress is extremely common and dysfunctional HPA axis and SNS responses are often underlying causes of other disorders. Therefore, helping our patients better cope with the stress in their life is a fundamental part of effective clinical practice.
