Symptoms & Causes Of Stress

Stress is defined as a specific response by the body to a stimulus, such as fear or pain, which disturbs or interferes with the normal physiological equilibrium of an organism. Stress can arise from both real and imagined situations. Stress is subjective; what is a stressor to one person, may not be to another. Stressors are not limited to negative situations, but can come in the form of traditional happy experiences such as weddings, a new baby, moving to a new house etc. Stress can come in the form of a chemical exposure, allergy or underlying infection, as these events alter physiologic function. If there is a difference between what we had expected/hoped for, and what is actually happening, we register STRESS.

Constant exposure to stress can lead to both physical and emotional symptoms such:

  • Heart Disease
  • Hair loss
  • Frequent colds and infections 
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Low self esteem
  • Depression
  • PTSD
  • Constipation

A little stress every now and then is normal and shouldn’t be concerning. Ongoing, chronic stress, however, can cause or exacerbate many serious health problems, sometimes being very serious.

Your Different Treatment Options

Dietary Therapy

Many people’s stress symptoms may be exacerbated by poor eating habits. Our Chinese Dietary Therapy counselors can find the right balance of healthy foods to help you regain control of your life.* A proper diet can help you lose or gain weight, help you sleep better at night and create more energy throughout your day. Through our experts, we strive to break you out of your depressive episode by treating your body as delicately as your mind.*


A common, natural remedy to depression can be more exercise. By encouraging you to participate in rigorous activity during the day, you’ll be able to increase the production of dopamine in your brain and naturally make you happier.* Exercise close to bedtime can also encourage a better night’s sleep, and exercise in the morning can energize you throughout your workday.* Exercise may improve your physical and mental health, especially in conjunction with a healthy diet.*

Lifestyle Counseling

Lifestyle counseling is often recommended for those experiencing stress of all magnitudes.  This process of healing provides educated suggestions of lifestyle altercations in order to live happier, and healthier.* Essentially, we will coach you through multiple means of managing your stress as well as living a more enjoyable, stress-free life.*
