Adrenal Stress Disorder

A condition that results when the body is subjected to more stress than it can handle or adapt to. Types of stress include:

  • Emotional: what we usually think about as stress
  • Physical: overwork, poor sleep, structural imbalance
  • Chemical: caffeine, nicotine, refined sugar, solvents, paint and cleaning product fumes
  • Thermal: Extreme cold or heat or large changes in temperature over short periods of time (like we’re having now)

Prolonged Adrenal Stress Disorder can result in an acute condition called Ligament Stress Syndrome. In Ligament Stress Syndrome, the ligaments become weakened to the point that they can over-stretch, tear and sprain very easily causing:

  • Sudden low back pain and spasm, often incapacitating
  • Sharp pain in the neck or base of skull
  • Sharp pain in any joint, which occurs suddenly without apparent trauma.
