Stress & Appetite Dysfunction

When we are faced with a stressor like being chased by a bear, the body elicits a cascade of adaptive responses collectively referred to as the “fight-flight” response. There are 2 arms of this response:

  1. Activation of the sympathetic nervous system (release of fight-flight hormones). This serves to direct blood flow to working muscles, heart and the brain.
  2. Activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA). The HPA axis is a major part of our neuroendocrine system that not only influences our response to stress, but also regulates a whole range of bodily processes, including digestion, immune function, mood and emotions, and energy storage and expenditure. When the HPA is activated, the hypothalamus tells the pituitary gland to tell the adrenal cortex to release glucocorticoids or cortisol. This allows the release of fuel to working muscles, heart and the brain.

This stress response happens at 200 mph!

All the self hypnosis and other stress reduction techniques in the world will never slow the earth’s revolutions. Stressors will occur. When you learn hypnosis you can take charge of how you respond to the stress that life serves up to you. With self hypnosis you can create inner peace and eat when you are truly physically hungry.
