Types of Body Stress
What kind of body stress do you suffer from?
This could be something sudden and major, such as whiplash from a car accident, or a bad fall, or it could be accumulative stress such as continuous bad posture i.e. sitting hunched over whilst working, sitting slumped forward, incorrect lifting, and repetitive inappropriate exercises.
These could cause possible cramps, weak knees, and weak bladder, and sciatica, stiffness, feeling bloated and constipated.
When we ignore the minor back ache or occasional stiffness, or we don't know how to overcome these pains, body stress can start to accumulate and it only becomes a major issue when you go to pick up a pen off the floor and suddenly your back has gone into spasm. Or you go to grab your bag off the back seat of the car and bang your back goes into spasm. This usually is a result of accumulative body stress.
Harmful chemicals may be consumed, inhaled, or even absorbed through skin contact. Sources can include pollutants in the air, insecticides, certain food additives/preservatives and even ingredients in cleaning products, creams, lotions and perfumes. Typical symptoms may include severe headaches or migraines, nausea and tension in the neck and shoulders, even dizziness.
