Stress is the body's response to external conditions that disturb the balance of a person. The physiological result of this process is a desire to escape from the situation. This reaction involves nearly every organ in our body including the brain, nervous system, the heart, blood flow, hormone levels, digestion and muscle function. Stress is a regular occurrence in our lives and can not be avoided, since any change that we need to adapt may cause us stress. Negative events, damage, illness or death of a loved one, are stressful events. As well as positive events such as being promoted at work brings new status, new responsibilities, and therefore stress.
Stress causes chemical changes in our body, under a situation of stress, the brain sends chemical signals that trigger the secretion of hormones (and including adrenaline) in the gland adrenal. Hormones initiate a chain reaction in the body: the heart beats faster and the blood pressure increases, blood is diverted from the intestines to the muscles to flee the danger, and the level of insulin increases to allow the body to produce more energy. These short-term reactions are not harmful, because in fact allow us to defend ourselves from danger, but if this situation persists, the resulting fatigue will be detrimental to the general health of the individual. Stress can stimulate an excess of stomach acid , which may causes ulcers and can get arteries to damage and increase the pressure and precipitate angina or a heart attack. This can also cause you loss or increased appetite with subsequent weight change in the person. Prolonged stress can cause illness cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine, baldness, asthma, nervous disorders, skin disorders, impotence, menstrual irregularities, colitis, diabetes or pain back.
Any event that generates an emotional response, can cause stress. This includes both positive situations (the birth of a child, marriage) and negative (loss employment, death of a relative). Although dependent on the responsiveness of each individual to stressful situations.
Given the lack of response to physical treatment, the doctor may recommend some type psychotherapy or combined treatment with drugs such as short-term measures term. However, overall drug use is not recommended as a solution long term. In these cases we do not recommend the use of alcoholic beverages. In ProBalance we have a 100% natural treatment focused on stress management, which consists in stimulating energy points that all human beings have and that we never pay adequate attention. The primary objective of this technique is to regulate the power of each individual (Qi). It has been scientifically proven that acupuncture can result in large physiological benefits such as reduced heart rate, blood pressure, increase energy and regenerate damaged tissues. Has proven to have effects calming and relaxing too, acupuncture can relieve anxiety, depression and can give the person an antidepressant effect and soothing. Not only can provide a therapy similar to that of antidepressants or anxiolytics, but also can help cure dependency to these drugs and thus reduce their consumption. The ear as a branch of acupuncture keeps the same benefits with the exception that instead of needles are used electro magnetized pellets stimulate the energy channels in the same manner as do the needles. Auricular therapy was drawn from studies by the French physician Paul Nogier who wrote "Tratado de Terapia Auricular" creating with this the basis of the treatment (1972 ). Auriculotherapy is a good choice for stress, and although it changes the conditions or circumstances of the life of the person can gain control over the emotional situations caused by stress. The practitioner who is subject to our treatment can restore the lost balance and thus achieve a physical and mental well-being. Auriculotherapy is a treatment choice which deals stress naturally, integrally and without the side effects of other therapies.
