The Health Show Episode #9 – How Adrenal Stress Impacts your Health
Wow .. what a great turn up and interest in our latest Health Show. We had the largest audience to-date, therefore it’s not hard to believe a lot of people are suffering out there from a range of adrenal stress symptoms.
Adrenal fatigue is estimated to affect around 80 percent of people in the world. This was one of the many reasons we choose Adrenal Stress as our topic for this episode of our Health Show. A lot of people feel deflated, frustrated and overwhelmed with symptoms and a lot of time they don’t understand what is happening.
It’s our opinion adrenal fatigue and stress can not only be managed but resolved with some techniques we use in Systematic Kinesiology. A practitioner can test you for nutritional deficiency, reduce emotional triggers, clear blocks in energy to improve the whole system and review your diet.
Watch our most recent show to learn how to recognize and address Adrenal Stress
The Health Show on Adrenal Stress was filled with so much information today and the half hour flew by quickly. As a result, we didn’t get a chance to demonstrate the iris contraction test which is an easy test you do at home. It measures your body’s stamina in response to light stimulation.
Adrenal Stress Test Directions
Here’s what you’ll need to take the test:
- Weak (not too bright) flashlight or phone light
- Dark room
In a dark room, sit or stand in front of a mirror for about a minute to allow your eyes to adjust to the light. “Then shine a flashlight across one eye (not directly into it) from the side of your head. Keep the light shining steadily across one eye and watch in the mirror with the other. Firstly, you should see your pupil (the dark circle in the centre of the eye) contracts immediately as the light hits your eye. This occurs because the iris, a tiny circular muscle composed of small muscle fibers, contracts and dilates the pupil in response to light.
So the pupil normally remains contracted in the increased light, but if the pupil is uable to hold its contraction and dilates [opens back up] despite the light shining on it, this is an indication of fatigue.
Dilation may last for about 30-45 seconds before it recovers and contracts again. It’s a good idea to time how long the dilation lasts and record it along with the date.
If you have any difficulty doing this on yourself, do it with a friend. Have them shine the light across your eye while both of you watch the pupil size. (Source: Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome)
