1040: The Physiology of Stress
• Explores the prevalence of stress in our society and its impact on the body and mind.
• Examines the relationship between stress, lifestyle, health, and other factors.
• Cautions of treating just the symptoms of stress, and inadvertently perpetuating stress conditions and stress responses.
• Shows how ancillary and complementary medicine can, and should, be incorporated into your practice.
• Gain a greater appreciation and ability to incorporate different tools into stress treatment protocols.
No one can argue the prevalence of stress in our society and its effects on our health and well-being. This course explains basic brain physiology and neurology including neurotransmitters and hormones, how they interact, and how they affect the body and the mind. Although no one healing profession has all the answers, we explore alternative approaches of treatment that easily can be incorporated into any healing protocols. This course also examines medications, whether they can fix the problem, or whether they may have become part of the problem. Untreated, unexamined stress conditions worsen with time and will affect more and more of our society.
