Management of Stress, Immune Weakness or Digestive Disruptions is no longer a Secret
If stress on the body continues, more serious conditions can emerge. Chemicals and hormones can impede the immune system and if these are continually being produced by constant stress then this system will eventually falter. The digestive system can be suppressed or digestion suspended by stress, preventing absorption of essential nutrients. As all this is happening we feel more and more tired, despondent, unable to manage and we begin to really worry!
The immune system is a hugely complex and extensive system about which there is still considerable mystery, but it's great importance to human health is universally acknowledged. The immune system is not related to specific organs, as are the digestive, circulatory or respiratory systems, but exists throughout the body's cells with a large part of it residing in the gut of the digestive system.
Abdominal pain or discomfort, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, excessive gas and other digestive disruptions that can be reflected in sleep disturbances, skin eruptions, headaches, loss of concentration, mood swings or just feeling disgusting seem part of a package deal for CFS/FM sufferers. Aside from pain and discomfort we are tired, cranky and possibly depressed!
