Stress

Western Diagnosis

Stress is the term used to describe any physical, mental or emotional stimulus that upsets the body's natural balance.

Some degree of stress is a normal part of human response to a challenging situation. However, heightened and prolonged levels of tension can lead to physical as well as emotional problems. This commonly takes place in situations where the individual feels powerless or has impossible deadlines or schedules they feel they have to meet.

Some people handle stress and stressful situations well, while others do not. This is largely related to hereditary factors and attitudes regarding how to deal with stress.

The symptoms of stress can include cold hands, changes in appetite, withdrawl, high blood pressure, memory loss, tooth grinding, fatigue, irritability, insomnia, lowered sexual drive and/or gastrointestinal disorders.
