Chronic Stress

Stress is always good whenever it comes very rare. Frequent stress is a unhealthy sign for anyone. Whenever we feel stress the hypothalamus starts some physiological changes which stimulates some chemicals to the adrenal glands to release the adrenergic chemicals. Glucorticosteroids is the other chemical produced by the gland.

Effects of Stress

The adrenergic substance will accelerate the heart beat and pumps the blood so hard. It will divert the blood flow from the skins and will make the skin cool. Moreover Glucorticosteroids will extract the energy stored in the muscles and makes the person more prepared for the stress. Increasing the heart beat will increase the blood pressure and as a result will make the person feel more alert. Once the stress period is over, the adrenergic chemical will stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, which in turn will counter act with the adrenergic substance. Thus the blood flow is restored to the skins and the digestive systems.

These steroids extract the energy available in the body. They also affects the digestive system and as a result will block the path for fresh air into the muscle tissues. Once there is no more energy left, they break down the muscle tissues and extract the energy. This is chronic stress at the extreme.
