The effects of stress can be quite devastating on overall health and if you want to cure uterine fibroids that you may have, you need to first examine your level of stress. Stress is very subtle in its devastating effects. No one can say that they have fibroids because of stress however, it certainly does not help if you desire to have a healthy body and mind.
The effects of stress have been researched and stress has been found to not only damage circulation but also narrow the arteries, increase blood pressure, lead to heart damage, increase the risk of heart disease as well as lead to a reduction in the body’s immunity causing many diseases and illnesses to develop or worsen due to the body’s decreased ability to fight off sickness and disease.
Stress can come for various sources such as work, children, other interpersonal relationships, living in anger, unforgiveness, lack of love, money woes, weight concerns, being over stimulated, being impatient, being overly ambitious, being under constant pressure and strain, fears and anxiety, etc.
We all deal with some form of stress every now and then. It only becomes an issue when you are under chronic stress on a regular basis.
Effects of Stress On Fibroid Activity
The part of the brain that determines hormonal activity including the menstrual cycle and other processes of the body is known as the limbic brain.
When you experience chronic levels of stress, this is the part of the brain that is most affected. Chronic stress may impair the functions of the limbic brain which disrupts the entire system starting with hormonal activity to the pituitary glands and other areas of the body including the ovaries and the uterus.
Properly functioning bodily processes enable the proper hormone level maintenance including the proper time to release hormones as well as maintaining each hormone’s proper balance.
Since uterine fibroid growth is affected by the female hormone estrogen, having hormone activity disrupted due to stress is not the ideal environment in which to cure uterine fibroids.
As you can see, stress has a very subtle but devastating effect on the body leaving the body open to the development of various diseases including fibroid tumors.
If looking for a way to cure uterine fibroids, one of the first areas you will need to address is whether you are under chronic stress that goes unresolved over a long period of time and whether this is negatively impacting your health and well-being.
If you are dealing with chronic stress, the first step will be to take step to relieve it immediately to ensure that when you start incorporating other treatment for uterine fibroids methods, the effectiveness of the treatments is not undermined due to the body not being in an optimal state due to chronic stress.
