Structural Stressors

Structural stressors may impact, challenge and threaten our musculoskeletal system which is the load bearing structure within us, providing our form, stability and movement. Our musculoskeletal system serves as a scaffold by providing support and protection for the soft tissues that make up the rest of our body. By far, the main purpose of this system is to provide protection for our central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and vital organs, such as the heart and lungs. It is also the structure that provides the support and attachment for our arms and legs.

When we are exposed to structural risk factors, our body begins to fatigue. As fatigue outruns our body’s recovery system, structural stressors start to evolve. Over time, as fatigue continues to outrun recovery and the structural stressors persist, musculoskeletal disorders (an increasing healthcare issue globally, currently being the second leading cause of disability), neurological and degenerative conditions as well as cognitive/emotional problems may develop.

FACT: About 1 in 2 U.S. adults has a musculoskeletal disorder, costing an estimated $213 billion each year in treatment and lost wages, according to a report from the United States Bone and Joint Initiative.

Chronic conditions that may result from a perpetual state of structural stress may include: musculoskeletal disorders (carpal tunnel syndrome, epicondylitis, tendinitis, back pain, tension neck syndrome, hand-arm vibration syndrome), degenerative skeletal/neurological diseases/conditions, depression, irritability, etc.

Major structural stressors may include:

  • Structural misalignment
  • Limited mobility
  • Tightness/stiffness
  • Improper spinal posture
  • Inflammation
  • Chronic aches/pain

These stressors may result from bio-mechanical load (determined by magnitude, repetition, and duration), occupational and psychosocial factors (high job demands, low social support, overall job strain, improper posture, repeated exposure to vibration), sudden exertion (lifting a heavy object), acute traumatic events such as accidents/injuries (old and new), improper or insufficient movement routine, and biochemical stressors.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.

Homeostasis

Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.

Stressor

Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
